It appears that the story of Octomom Nadya Suleman has not yet run out of steam thanks to some apparent bad choices by the former porn star. Nadya Suleman is now in potential hot water with the Los Angeles County Department of Welfare Fraud Prevention and Investigation. According to several sources including The Huffington Post, Radar Online and TMZ, Suleman is being accused of welfare fraud and finds herself in even more hot water than she has seen in the past.
The report says that Octomom got food stamps and welfare benefits of $60,000 dollars even though her income was reportedly over $200,000. That amount is way more than the cap of $119,000 that is mentioned in the report. Surely she is deserving of the help if she qualifies for it properly, but otherwise she is taking food and help from the mouths of others that truly do need it.
This accusation is only the latest dramatic episode over the past several years with Octomom. From her time as a porn star to her rehab stint in 2012, Suleman has had her share of problems in the public eye. Unfortunately, it is not the type of spotlight that most people want to be in.
According to the TMZ report, Suleman is being investigated and bank records are being seized to try to prove her guilt. If she is convicted for what they are investigating, she could go to prison for up to three years. The effects that could have on her children could be far reaching and sad.
Oddly enough, it would seem someone getting all that cash would be fairly well off. Instead, Suleman appears to be struggling a great deal. It was reported by Mail Online that Suleman fled in the middle of the night after getting a notice that rent had to be paid in the amount of $2590. The report also mentions that the home was left a wreck and with a terrible urine odor throughout the home. If this is true, those fourteen kids are truly in need of help. No child should be left in such conditions.
With all the problems that Octomom has been suffering from, it is rather hard to say what should be done here. Clearly she is innocent until proven guilty, but having trouble making positive and logical decisions. The kids are the ones that truly suffer in a situation like this, so what is best for them seems to be the truly important thing.
