Octomom Back On Welfare, Porn Not Paying The Bills

Octomom and Welfare Checks

Nadya ‘Octomom’ Suleman is back on welfare. The mother of 14 stopped taking money from Uncle Sam five months ago after she made the leap into the adult porn business.

TMZ has learned that Octomom was forced back onto welfare after rehabilitation bills ate through all of her savings.

Given the size of her enormously large family Nadya will receive $1,800 per month for food and $1,000 per month for emergency cash. The entire family will also receive Medi-Cal benefits along with mental health and dental payments.

Octomom’s salary over the last year has been a mixture of “solo” adult film work and her night time gig as a stripper.

Sources claim that Octomom is adamant about getting off welfare once again, although whether she’ll jump at the chance for more adult work or take a different route is not yet known. The Hollywood Gossip seems to think “Home Alone 2″ will debut in 2013 and we have a feeling that given the opportunity Octomom would jump at the chance, or at least lie down on her back at the chance for more adult biz bucks.

Nadya has tried for years to secure a reality TV series gig but television networks have turned her down left and right.

Do you think $2,800 in welfare ($33,600 annually) is far too much for any one person to receive, regardless of their family size?

    The money is not for her — it's for the kids. They didn't ask to be born and to have this loony as their sole parent. They shouldn't have to starve!

  2. Cheryl Lundgren

    My kids can't afford to have children so this country is inundated with these welfare idiots who don't care who pays for their offspring.

  3. Matt Rsr

    Michele…you ever hear of the concept of MORAL HAZARD !!!!!!!!

  4. Jeani Cox

    I don't know what to think. She needs some consequences for her irresonsible choices but her children didn't ask to be born into that situation.

  5. Corliss Fisher

    yea to much money she gittin more thn me and I work my ass of and wht I'm movin bk home wit mom 33000 for having kids 16000 not one kid.

  6. Neil Runyon

    sad. I work 3 jobs and still cant get by. she sits at home and makes 3 times as much as me. and I get 100 a month on food…i can get more, I just have a certain pride to not be a welfare case.

  7. Angel Vargesko

    I feel sorry for her children…. since she has gone to the state for support for them maybe its time for the state to take a harder look into their living conditions.

  8. Gloria Ann Jenkins

    Maybe the government should insist she give the name of the man, who donate his sperm; which made it possible for these children to be conceived. (let him pay up) There was a story posted on Yahoo, recently, about this same situation; a sperm donor, being sued for child support. ( two lesbians, on welfare, state required they give up the sperm donors name, in order to receive benefits.)

  9. Wendy Maddy

    your'e a cold hearted jerk. you're just lucky you don't have the bills she does. $36.50 a week for everything for each person in her family! would YOU have to lie on your back and do porn to support YOUR family? help her out!

  10. Wendy Maddy

    you need to send them money every month to help out and shut your mean mouth. they need your help, not your criticism!

  11. Angela Sago

    yes, I can't remember the numbers, but a lot of them have issues.

  12. Wendy Maddy

    Jeani Cox so help them out by opening up your pocketbook and donating some food clothes rent money utility money etc. to assist them.

  13. Marian R. Reed

    In vitro fertilization is not cheap, she could afford to undergo that but yet can't afford the children that resulted from IVF?

  14. Adam Carlson

    Wendy, then why don't you donate your hard earned money (if you have any) to help her out. Maybe babysit for her 14 kids.

  15. Anonymous

    Corliss, are you really a university student? Your post was nearly incomprehensible. Please, when posting, lay off the text message "spelling." Thank you.

    What an insult to Angelina Jolie, and I don't care for her either!

  17. Nora Housey

    I think if you are already getting welfare then that is your set amount no matter how many more kids you have. Seems like getting money for each kid is just an incentive for people on welfare to have more kids.
    I'm not faulting her for having octoplets since there was nothing she could do to control that, but she was already receiving welfare when she got pregnant with them so she should not receive more money just because she had more kids.

  18. Wood Words

    She should have never had those kids in the first place. Put the kids in foster homes so they can have a better life.There is something wrong with this system.

  19. Gary Rotola

    how in the world does this woman get welfare….where is he dead beat exhusband….if she is on welfare he should be in jail…..talk about a socialist country were doing it to ourselfs.

  20. Lila Rose

    She rents a house which.
    "features a gated pool and spa and basketball court".
    pays $500 for haircuts (while on welfare) , etc.
    These kids need to be taken away. She obviously has mental issues, just got out of rehab, and doesn't have the necessary mental resources to raise 14 children.

  21. Geri Lynn

    Wendy, you're as much an idiot as Octomom… Someone, please, shut this idiot up! When she had the last batch of kids we all knew she would ultimately wind up on Welfare, Food Stamps, Medical, etc., etc. Is it fair and right? No! But neither is it enough to care for 14 children. She had a brood at tax-payer expense. The doctor who gave her fertility drugs should pay for their upkeep. He's an idiot too.

  22. Anonymous

    Wendy Maddy, she did it willingly. Give me a break! You want to help her out? Donate your own money.

  23. Geri Lynn

    Cheryl Lundgren: it's not the fault of "welfare idiots" but of our government who so willingly gives away tax-payer money to undeserving people. Not only Suleman, but illegals, and a whole host of others. It's our government who encourages this insanity, and at my expense. Change the liberal thinking of our leaders. Then you'll see a little more equity.

  24. P.j. Stewart

    I work 40 + hours a week..with a 5000.00 deductable my medical insurance is not very helpful!! No dental coverage..etc…I am tired of supporting other people..where is the fathers of these kids?? if they are capable of support and fit give them custody…the state stepping in is of no benefit to the ones working and paying taxes..we still will support them!! The welfare system is in dire need of a complete overhaul…

  25. Jayne Potts

    Wendy Maddy- She's not a fit parent. Those kids ought to be placed in foster care. It should have been done several years (and several kids) ago. That's not being mean- these kids don't stand an ice cube's chance in hell of having a normal life as long as she retains custody.

  26. Anonymous

    Yeah, this lady's been very careless & stupid. For sure. But, it isn't the kids' fault. This article was only written to bring negative attention, though, and how is that going to help anyone? Maybe the lady does deserve to be ridiculed, and doesn't deserve a dime of welfare, but really, think about it: Let's say that a babysitter costs $2 per kid per hour.

    That's $28 per hour just to pay a babysitter. That's her problem for having 14 kids, definitely, but I'm just curious to know what those who want to "cut her off" would have her do. Seriously. I don't like having my tax money (and yes I work for a living lol) support someone who doesn't try to better themselves, but what's the answer?

    I'm literally asking the question. I don't see what options she has outside of what she's doing (not that I'm a fan, and if I were her, I'd honestly feel like a fool), and shaming her every single time anyone gets the chance isn't right either. Whether that's in an online article, or anywhere, period.

    Should we make this type of carelessness illegal? Should we force her or her children to starve? Should the state take her kids from her? There is no real, reasonable answer. It's just a big steaming dump of a situation that hopefully noone ever repeats.

  27. JoAnn Hunt Huizenga

    Although I do not like her choices in life. These little children need food, shelter, and medical care. If we all have to pay for it, then we should for the kids.

  28. Ed Stanton

    I open my wallet and help her every time I get paid.Obummer and the rest of the bleeding heart liberals like yourself give enough of my money away already,I don't have any extra to give away,no one pays my bills or feeds,houses ,or supplys medical for my family.If you want to keep supportng this way of life,you support her

  29. Ralph Finelli

    why should we the tax payers pay for her kids no one paid for mine i worked to raise mine and never took a dime that I didn't work for this is getting way out of hand i do feel sorry for the kids but again why should we have to pay to take care of them let the Dr that gave her the Drugs to have the litter pay for them

  30. Alexis Rehkop

    Wendy, you are a moron, complete and utter moron. This stupid woman(a failure of evolution to be sure) knowingly and willfully had all these kids without being able to support and raise them. This horrible trainwreck is not deserving of anything at all. Her kids need to be taken away and put into homes that can and will take care of them. This failed abortion of a woman needs to be thrown out in the streets at the very least-or perhaps she can go and service the men in the state prisons since she likes to do porn. This idiot of a person and others like her need to be shown that self-responsibility is more important than anything else. they need to be shown that it is your own fault for your mistakes and it is not anyone elses. We as a society need to stop allowing this sort of behavior and we need to stop it now. These future generations are becoming more and more useless and mind-bogglingly stupid.

  31. Anonymous

    Wendy Maddy, you are an idiot. They need to fend for themselves. That's what needs to happen. Don't be such a fool. $34,000 a year to do absolutely nothing. What a joke? You are a joke of a person.

  32. Anonymous

    Wendy Maddy, I can't even imagine that you are a real person. There can not be a real person in this world who thinks like you. Have you ever been checked out concerning your mental condition. Because you either just have a weird sense of humor, or you are a complete nut.

  33. Melissa Prince

    Money might be for kid, but she is the one who gets it and spends iit. Does she use it only for the kids. I doubt it. She needs to look for a JOB, NOT LOOK FOR WORK FREE JOB. The kids are her responsibility, not the state. If you can not support your them, you should not have them.

  34. Ray Spartan

    HEY IT ISNT THEIR SOLE PARENT. BESIDES WHAT THEY ARENT SPELLING OUT IS SHE RECEIVES THE 1800 PLUS 5800.00 FOR HER KIDS AT YOUR EXPENSE.

  35. Donathan E McCarty

    They need to make the doctor who implanted all those embryos take care of them. Totally irresponsible and ignorant that the state would not make him responsible for the cost of raising them.

  36. Anonymous

    It's more than I get on Social Security and a small pension….but it certainly isn't enough to take care of her kids….she's healthy, apparently smart so why is she not in a program to get her into a working situation.. There are any dozens of programs that can help her do so…..from subsidized day care to college costs…

  37. Rob Archer

    She is an embarrassment to moms and women everywhere. Those kids need a real parent(s), not a sad excuse of mother like her.

  38. Angel Vargesko

    She used in vitro . IMHO the Dr. needs to pony up some cash too !!

  39. Serena Collins

    that is totally wrong for a baby making machine to get all that money on welfare, I still think they should make her work.

  40. Joe Collins

    thats funny i work two jobs and walfare says i make to much money but this octomom makes more on a government plan than i do working two jobs lol thats our government system for ya

  41. Janet Zumba

    Angel Vargesko why did she make a doctor think she needed invitro fertilization?

  42. Karma Lynn Hurworth

    How in God's green earth did this idiot come up with the money for in-vitro?? I know many childless couples who couldn't afford it, wanted children, and actually work for a living.

  43. Janet Zumba

    I just googled Octomom's doctor. He had his medical practice licensed revoked in 2011 because of implanting 12 embryos in octomom. He filed for bankruptcy in 2012 when he could not get his license back. There, let that be a lesson to doctors. Doctors shouldn't do "anything" to make money.

  44. Cheryl Lundgren

    Geri Lynn…..I beg to differ. It's true that the state doesn't help the problem, but I'm assuming you aren't on welfare even though the state provides it. So what makes Octomom different and deserving? Nothing.

  45. Cheryl Lundgren

    Wendy Maddy …..I'm lucky that I don't have those bills? I don't think luck has anything to do with it. I didn't knowingly knock out 14 kids that I couldn't support. I had 2 and they were 8 1/2 years apart. But I'm paying for this moron's kids? That's bullshit! I worked my whole life and paid for my children and supported them. So we're supposed to feel sorry for her and just give her money?

  46. Janice Cady

    Of course she is on welfare. How could she not be. Just wish NON of the money went for her needs, just for the kids. That's not going to happen of course.

  47. Kathy Dodge

    I think those kids would be better off being put up for adoption.

  48. Ray Shade

    I feel sorry for her being a single mother of eight children, i feel like she actually could use more assistance.that's not much for her and the kids.that's a lot of shoes and other stuff.its gotta be hard.

  49. Julia W Velasquez

    i pray to god for her she is a singlemom ,, i hope she gets a reality show,, but how come kim kardashian gets it and honey bo bo ,, and others but not her ,,, we are humans we all make mistakes ,,,is my opinion

  50. David Haller

    this is sad the children are going to run across there mothers porn flicks. but in america some social agency is saying shes fit to be a mother. I'm sorry I don't think so but shes not the only irresponsible mother out there. these kids will grow up to be arrested school shooters. addicted to drugs. but the women still keep the kids its wrong so wrong and we the taxpayers foot the bill. I pray that somebody says that's enough and takes away her children before its to late shes had her chance let the kids have there's.

  51. Rudy Salihar

    Wendy Maddy you have screws loose in your Head, This has become the status Quo in What's wrong with America People have grown accustomed to being rewarded and bailed out and not held responsible for their actions. In your posts you defend this Loony unfit mother and have told everyone that posted disagreeing statements to your posts to give her money to pay her bills and feed her kids. My? to you is what have you given this lady to help her out. isn't $604.800 in welfare and not even counting the medical cost for these kids till they are 18 enough HELP. If you truly believe this women should be supported for her tragic lack of REALITY. then Open YOUR WALLET and help her Post a copy of a Certified check for $10,000 to help her out and I will be impressed. Wendy Maddy you obviously are the TRUE JERK here. You are the one that needs shut your mean mouth and help her out yourself if you believe in her so much. Put up or SHUT THE _UCK UP WENDY MADDY You are a Screwball Get real Lady.

  52. Melissa Nelson-Mosley

    I say eff her…give her kids to a decent family and let her make her own way. But as long as the california tax payers stand for it they will pay her bills while she sits her her butt or lays on her back.

  53. Melissa Nelson-Mosley

    Wendy Maddy , I keep reading your posts and realize that you are wanting to help her. So please feelfree. All the nadyia sulmann supporters of the world need to stand up and say taxpayers keep your money we want to supoort the poor momma and her offspring. As suggested send her your money. take care of her kids. move them in with you. i for one am tired of taking care of breeding leeches. sulman is a worthless piece of garbage instead of whining about having to do porn to support her kids she should have not had any. I work my butt off to support my children. I dont ask for anything from anyone. I have shoveled dog crap, cleaned cat boxes, ironed peoples clothes etc etc in addition to a job or two or three to support my children. she can do the same

  54. Angel Vargesko

    The Dr. who performed her in vitro has had his license suspended . She used money from student loans and a law suit to pay for her addiction to childbirth .

  55. Anita Justice

    I only hope that her children have good upstanding GAY, LESBIAN.BISEXUAL, TRANSEXUAL TEACHERS, as good gay role models. Our schools must hire more L/G/B/T teachers, at tax payer expense.

  56. Carla Siqueland

    I have really studied this woman. It is lazy and easy to hate her. To really see her and accept her for who she is, takes openness. She is brilliant and thinks herself into holes. Yes, she is likely mentally ill, maybe bi polar…. or just very adhd. She seems to have a very good heart. She is trying SO HARD to do the impossible. SO HARD. To give in at some point when defeated, and do whatever she has to do to feed the kids is what anyone would and should do. I do not know anyone who has tried harder than her. I really feel for her and wish people would credit her for her many good points. She admitted it was a mistake…. Now the kids need food and care. I admire her will. The tax payers support a war I don't support. I am not losing sleep that 8 kids are being fed. Are you?

  57. Ilsa Birmingham

    Feeding people (and housing and taking care of medical/dental needs) is ALWAYS most important. That said, folks should NOT have children if they can't take care of them fully. NOT NOT NOT. Birth control should be implanted in all humans at birth and not taken out until they PROVE they can parent well.

  58. Wendina M. Ubaghs

    I'm not losing sleep over her or her choices, either. Pro-choice means just that: choice. Doesn't mean I have to agree with it, and doesn't mean I don't worry about her children… but I know of worse parents with only one or two kids.

  59. Carla Siqueland

    Of course they shouldn't.. I agree. She knows she messed up. It's astounding that she could somehow afford invitro and that someone was willing to do that. Country wide, people have children they can't afford. It's just that her mess is extra big and condensed. Many, many people are guilty of the same sloppy thinking. The same people pointing fingers at her.

  60. Wendina M. Ubaghs

    I do. I worry about children all the time. It's why I donate to Planned Parenthood. Birth control, education, pre-natal care and termination are extremely important. We're still missing huge pieces of the puzzle, though: alcohol and drug abuse often strike people after they have kids. Poverty hits. Regret, confusion, mental illness… we often can't make a determination about someone's fitness as a parent until after they're pregnant or a parent. I advocate frank, open, brutally honest discussion in our classrooms with kids as young as 10; but parents don't want their kids to hear about life's true difficulties until it's too late. I knew at age 10 I'd be a crappy parent, but not everyone has that insight.

  61. Carla Siqueland

    I know teachers have their hands full these days but I was utterly disgusted and will permanently be disenchanted with the school system and their treatment of me and my son. There were only a few gems in there.. and the system worked against them. I won't discuss this further because the amount of damage they caused is unforgivable and causes me soul sickness to think about.

  62. Wendina M. Ubaghs

    Thanks, Carla. Just keepin' it real. So is this show that catches troubled teenagers, hopefully before they become parents (and/or porn actors); and educates the parents, too. He has the uncomfortable conversations so the kids and parents don't have to. I'd love to teach this stuff in schools: http://www.mylifetime.com/shows/teen-trouble

  63. Carla Siqueland

    I am seriously wanting to teach a life skills class in high school. Organization, prioritizing etc is what makes or breaks a person and our best and brightest struggle the most with that.

  64. Wendina M. Ubaghs

    Carla, you and I should have been home schooled. I've always thought that. We'd have found each other as friends without public school anyway, right? :) Some kids can handle bad schools like Meany/Madrona in the 70s. I couldn't. My mother was stay-at-home at the time, educated and bright. She even tutored math for the PTA.

  65. Carla Siqueland

    My schooling fell out when I switched from UPA and super high standards to RHS… where I could skip 10-12 days… and pass. But I was referring to how the school treated my son and me as an adult… It was a nightmare beyond nightmares. For myself growing up.. home was empty, home schooling would need a teacher. So for me a small school with high expectations woulda worked great. And yep, we would find each other regardless.

  66. Wendina M. Ubaghs

    I'm sorry you and your son went through that, and he had to see you–their mom–basically disrespected.

  67. Carla Siqueland

    Thanks. yeah he saw through what they were doing. He had a 2 month long stomach ache at one point and the nurse, going off of his fathers bull, told my son he was faking… and ignored him. And he had really had to muster courage to speak up.

  68. Carla Siqueland

    Her consequences are having to do an insane amount of work, be poor and be hated by the world. How many more consequences does she need?

  69. Peter P Mohan

    That isn't a mother and those aren't children. It's a fucking environmental disaster that could have been circumvented by a kitten 100 years ago. Now our crazy cat ladies can have actual children to neglect.
