Octomom child welfare
Nadya’s hairstylist Stephanie complained that the children were being neglected, so the cops along with several child welfare workers came to her door on Tuesday night. Stephanie said that Nadya allows her family of 14 to live in pretty terrible conditions.
According to Stephanie, only one of the toilets in the house actually works and some of the kids are using portable potties in their bedrooms and in the backyard. The kids also appear to be dirty and underfed and the house is a horrendous mess. Also of note was that when Stephanie came to do Nadya’s hair, Nadya put a chair against the children’s door, so they wouldn’t be able to escape.
If you’ve seen any of the photos, then you would have to agree. The place is an atrocious mess and her kids look dirty. We know that she’s only one person, but this is a decision that she made, even after already having six children.
Police went to the house in the 2000 block of East Madonna Lane around 6:10 p.m. Tuesday, said La Habra police Sgt. Daniel Barnes.
"We had an individual come in to report that there was general neglect of living conditions for children there at the home," Barnes said.
Suleman's hairstylist raised the concerns with police, saying the house was unkempt, had only one working toilet and that Suleman sometimes locked unattended children in their rooms, the entertainment news website TMZ reported.
Police and Orange County Department of Family and Children's Services officials determined there was no threat to the children and left after investigating for 90 minutes, Barnes said, adding that the initial report was made just before 4 p.m. Tuesday.
"A preliminary check of the residence did not reveal anything out of the ordinary or give cause or reason to remove the children or take any action at this time," Barnes said. "There is no criminal investigation ongoing at this time. Social services will continue to investigate."
Suleman, 36, has had trouble hanging onto her house since giving birth to octuplets in January 2009.
Earlier this month, police investigated after someone smashed the window of hercar.
A handwritten note was found inside that read, "Leave California or you will die," TMZ reported.
Suleman told the "Today" show at the time that she has begun to accept food stamps to help feed her children, all born with the help of fertility treatments.
Welp, it seems that some people want Octomom dead because of the welfare, and they’re seriously that she’s getting financial help, according to TMZ.
Sources told the site that after the news broke, Suleman began to get phone calls, emails, and Facebook messages saying things like, “Die b****. I’m not working for your f**king kids, you’re the one that wanted them.”
But on the opposite end of the spectrum, TMZ says she’s also received nicer messages from other single mothers supporting her for making the right choice.
The sources add that the police haven’t gotten involved yet; but for the sake of the safety of Nadya and her children, I hope she doesn’t wait too long. Whether or not you agree with the welfare decision, death threats are NEVER okay, folks.
