OctoMom

Probed by Child Services

3/3/2009 11:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


0302_octomom_ex_tmz_01-1Before she had the octuplets, Nadya Suleman was investigated by the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) ... and that's just the beginning -- cops have been called to her homestead a slew of times.

We've learned on July 7, 2008, DCFS received a complaint from a neighbor who felt Nadya's six kids "were not clean or being fed properly." An investigation was opened, and DCFS took a Suspected Child Abuse Report. Investigators went to Nadya's home, interviewed some of the kids and filed a report. Officials concluded the allegation was "unfounded."

Fair enough -- but then there's this. Our search shows that cops were called to Nadya's last two homes a total of eight times.

(1) On January 9, 2008, someone called 911 after one of Nadya's kids accidentally locked himself/herself in a room. The cops came and a patrol officer picked the lock.

(2) On October 27, 2008, Nadya called 911 in a panic because one of her kids was missing. Five patrol units responded to the house -- turns out the five-year-old had followed grandma around the block.

(3) On January 23, 2009, three days before the OctoBabies were born and Nadya was in the hospital, one of the kids called 911 from the house. We don't know why.

(4 & 5) Cops were called by neighbors twice (May 12, 2008 and August 10, 2008) because the front door was left open and they feared a break in.

(6) Cops went along with DCFS after getting the complaint on July 7, 2008.

(7 & 8)
We all know about the two post-OctoBirth calls -- when cops were called to control reporters and when a neighbor brandished a shotgun.

But surely things will get calmer once the additional eight kids come home ...

COMMENT #9 SOUNDS LIKE ONE OF THOSE EXTREMIST RIGHT TO LIFERS, YES, EVERY LIFE IS PRECIOUS, BUT IF YOU CAN'T EVEN TAKE CARE OF THE 6 YOU HAVE WITH OUT THE GRANDPARENTS HELP ALL THE TIME, YOU HAVE NO BUSINESS DOING IT AGAIN LET ALONE HAVING 8! TOTALLY REDICULOUS! YOU SHOULD HAVE TO PASS A TEST OR GET A LICENSE. EVEN WITH A DEGREE A SINGLE PARENT COULDN'T SUPPORT 14 KIDS AND GIVE THEM THE ATTENTION THEY NEED AND THE LOVE THEY EACH NEED TO FEEL SPECIAL. NO WAY! WORK FULL TIME, PAY A DAYCARE PROVIDER, COME HOME, TAKE CARE OF YOUR HOME, AND PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR KIDS, THEN FALL INTO BED AND DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN... NO WAY. A 2 PARENT HOUSEHOLD HAS DIFFICULTIES, HOW LONG ARE PEOPLE ACTUALLY GOING TO RAISE HER CHILDREN FOR HER,EXACTLY? BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT IT BOILS DOWN TO, SHE CAN'T DO IT ALONE SO GET SOMEONE ELSE TO RAISE THEM.... WHATEVER!

I heard that the "fertility clinic" has since "octo mom" invitroed another lady with 8 embryos.

And as far as a child locked/lost in a room. I have had that happen and knew how to get my child out. I think that is abuse of the "911" service and she should be fined. That woman and Florida went to jail for phoning "911" when Macdonald's was out of "chicken nuggets" and refused her cash back. I think "octo mom" having a child locked in a room is the same thing.. abuse of a public service. They as the entire household are not even tax payers (maybe they once were but not presently).
Abusing a service. She should be fined. Learn some respect for the system.
"octo mom" is losing children now!!!! You think it will be easier in the future with 14?

A friend of mine had a little boy and his favorite game was to lock Mommy out of the house and not let her in. (example if Mom went to sign for a parcel) You could see through the window....He knew exactly what he was doing and would not open the door. The police were not called..
You go through a window...........that is a small little rancher.......you can go through a window..even to break a window it is ap $30.00 if you take the window to a glass shop for repair... afterwards.
Calling the police......is very expensive when the police should be looking after real criminals.
"octo mom" is seriously sick.

lol
comment #123 regarding son swalling a "nickel"
my daughter has vision problems..and amazed me at what she could get into..she found my 'back gammon set" and ate all 13 brown pieces. She thought it was chocolate. I only went to the doctor..(Immediately).. The doctor just said .."get some prune juice and count and make sure all the pieces come out the other end"
and that was a great doctor.
No ambulence or police or fireman..and it was my doctor that told me to come into the office..not the hospital..

I think MS. Octo mom needs a good fine.....for abusing services.

My kid locked himself in a closet, but I did not use public services at taxpayer expense to solve the problem. I was also a single mom, but figured out how to remove the doorknob (all you need is a screwdriver). Of course, taking care of my own problem deprived me of the chance to play the damsel in distress, which is apparently another ploy of this sad woman. You people miss the entire point. She is an attention wh*re. Probably not her fault, but nevertheless, she wants attention from any source she can get it from. She is a very troubled woman. All these excuses for her behavior are not helping her. She needs to confront her own psych issues honestly and get real help---something she will have no incentive to do if there is an undercurrent of "poor victim" or she just made a "silly" decision. No, she did not. She made a potentially lethal one simply to draw attention to herself. She is dangerously narcissistic and not a suitable parent.

What's with this Angelina Jolie crap, anyway? She does not look like Angelina, unless Angelina were a troll on steroids. Stop feeding this woman's narcissisistic delusions!

I would just like to say that no I don't agree with making babies you can't support but please keep in mind that for a lot of us we have the best of intentions but don't always think our actions through as I am a young mother that up until I had my son wasn't sure if I could support him granted I wasn't having 8 kids but still the same princible people... If you peple really don't like TMZ then fine why are you on here reading this stuff and yet saying how terrible TMZ is. How stupid are you for posting on their site which means you are in fact reading their articles and hey don't read it if you don't like it... To the OctoMom good luck I am sure you will have nothing but an uphill battle on your hands but have faith and stay strong.....

Have any of you "defenders" of Nadya actually listened to the 911 call when she thought her son was missing? I understand being upset, but she was stating (over and over again), "I'm going to kill myself" in the presence of her other children! They're going to be emotionally stable alright! NOT!

I agree with Norcal Mom, she does something wrong......... TAKE the children and punish the mother. The only reason to have 14 children with out a father is to capitalize on the children. I think this woman is using this as a free meal ticket. LOOK AT ME, i HAVE 14 CHIDLREN THAT I CAN'T FEED. I DON'T LIKE TO WORK, SO I ASK EVERYONE TO GIVE ME MONEY SO I CAN TAKE CARE OF MY CHILDREN. That is so lame. How could a mother exploit her own children? I hope that DCFS finds for the welfare of the children and removes them ALL from this so called "Mother".

I think Octomom should quit asking for everyone to give her a hand out just because she got knocked up with her litter. And it seems pretty funny that she can't keep up with all her kids. Maybe she should quit focusing so much on her looks and take care of her kids instead of trying to get the next paycheck from anyone that will listen about her poor pitiful me story that I am sorry I don't really care about. She ask for the litter when you started fertility drugs when she already had six kids that were obviously not being taken care of in the first place or her neighbors wouldn't have called authorities. Seems like all she wants is her fifteen seconds of shame and everyone in Beverly Hills is buying into it. Give me a BREAK Please!!!

Hey...Ms. Mommy...

STOP TYPING YOUR PROFOUND THOUGHTS AND FEELING IN ALL CAPS! THIS MEANS YOU ARE SHOUTING YOU DUMBASS!

TMZ...please do not post anything anybody has typed in all caps. If you are incapable of using a keyboard correctly and using the shift key to create a capital letter, and then releasing the shift key to create a lower case letter, then please don't bother to post anything. Nobody wants to read garbage like that.

SO.. LET me get this right..
The article was about
1) Unfounded call by a neighbor where the NEIGHBOR called Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS)
and it was found to be UNFOUNDED..

2) Calls to 911.. all which seem fairly normal and reasonable.

It's amazing how much spin you guys put on things..
You lie, get sued, defame people AND THAT'S JUST THE BEGINING
