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 ...

OCTOMOM was "PROBED" by CPS? Ewww!!!! And people wonder why the FORD PROBE was such a marketing disaster. Ok, it wasnt as bad as the EDSEL, but in modern times it ranks high on the GOOF-O-METER.

OCTOMOM is mentally ill and needs to be institutionalized. She has severe problems is self absorbed beyond belief. The first sign she really went over the edge was using disability payments for plastic surgery to look like Angelina Jolie. Wasting get more tax payer money to get pregnant after already having 6 kids was icing on the fruit cake. There should be a law that anyone on the public dole received permission to have any additional kids. If people want to have 14 kids then they should support them themselves.

This whole family is sick. It's likely that several of the new brood will have ongoing physical and mental problems as well. If they get their "reality TV" show PLEASE boycott it!

This Octomom is a predator preying on her own parents and a leech sucking at the public trough. And if those babies are allowed to go home with her, I won't be surprised when she ends up being the next murder/suicide. Those kids' only chance at having a good life is a life away from her. They deserve better than a self-centered parasite for a "mother" Yeah, she wants help alright...as long as that helps conforms to what SHE wants. She's a no good user. I feel sorry for everyone around her.

Cops picked the lock.......that's a joke! The locks on bedrooms and baths are privacy locks.....anything opens them. Most cops have trouble opening locks when they have the right key. Most cops spend too much time chasing other people's wives.

Ok, I usually do not comment on any of the articles as I find some of them more along the Enquirer level than true gossip. This story has tapped danced on my last nerve. First, most of these complaints are ridiculous at best. Hell I have 3 kids, two teenagers, and my doors are open half the time in summer, my kids are dirty because thats what kids do.....they play. But lets forget all that, I have a problem with the neighbors! The call to 911, neighbor brandishing a firearm. Ok if this man was outside waving this gun around raising hell then by all means 911 should be called. However, it was reported that he was moving the weapon from his car to his house. Who are the crazy ones here? I am completely beside myself in the fact that this woman wanted this many children and plans to keep them. There obviously is some mental issues with her or obsessioons at least. But what no one is asking is....how? How did she afford all of these IVF procedures? Shouldn't this doctor have as much responsibily as the mom? Idk what most of u know about when it comes to IVF procedures but this is not an easy process nor is it cheap. How long before the doctor comes forward and starts making money off of this sad situation. There are 14 kids at stake, although we didnt ask for any of this burden they r children and someone has to step up! Someone has to also be responsible for the whole situation other than the mother. She didn't get there alone and since the father was a donor...who do blame?

I think this woman could have munchausen by proxy. Seriously. Someone needs to find out if she does. If she's still not feeling like she's getting the attention she wants she could hurt one of those kids. I don't know. Just seems like she craves a lot of attetention. With the calling of the police often, and continuing to have babies and wanting to be in the spotlight.

get off of her back, these reports are rediculous and if some womans family is taken away because of stupidity like these reports it would be another shame. just leave these people alone, i am betting there are people out there who wouldnt even mind the coverage. its horrible the way this whole thing is being treated. get away. if no one else will tell u back off.

Ok for all those people who are like leave her alone and let her get help...seems you have not read everything.

A company in CA, non-profit, offered her free 24 hr care for a year and she TURNED THEM DOWN, because they would not ATTACH A REALITY SHOW to the deal......

She does not love her kids, just the money she can make from them. She should lose all 14 and be thrown into a mental hospital and never allowed to be a parent again.

She's not mentally stable. No sane woman would have 14 children being single & unemployed. She needs psychiatric help. The kids need individually cared for & she can't provide that to all 14 of them!!! They are going to feel neglected & feel inadequate & not loved by their mom. They need taken away. all 14 of them. They deserve a better life b/c they will never have a secure life with her as their mom. I hope child services deems her as an unfit mother to take care of her children & the children get to be with loving families that will be cared & provided for.

I heard that a recent interview with OctNutMom showed an older child pulling her hair and slapping her in the face, and the 6 kids saying they don't want the other 8 around. Is this true? What the heck - Social Services investigates poor Britney because she doesn't use a car seat - once, and this house is total looney toons and no one cares? WTF is going on???

OctoMom appears to have the intelligence of a skid and has NO business having ANY children. Obviously she's unable to raise them in a two-parent, stable, loving environment, which provides adequate shelter, food, nurturing, meeting their emotional and physical needs, seeing that they all receive a good education, etc., etc., etc.

California should take away ALL of her children and search for loving, caring homes for them. She desperately needs psychiatric care and should be spayed at the local SPCA.

OctoMom is akin to a feral cat and should be dealt with accordingly.

Anon, you are a moron

Jon and Kate have 8 kids, duh! Twins and Sextuplets and the youngest are 4, almost 5.

So please, shut up and read your facts. Octomom is different, she does not love her kids and never have. She is crazy about Jolie and using her kids for money. She never had them for love, she is a liar. Supporting her is supporting the abuse of those kids!
