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 ...

Who Caresss!!!    

LOOKING AT ALL THE INCIDENTS, IT APPEARS NOSEY PEOPLE COULDN'T MIND THEIR OWN DAMN BUSINESS. IT APPEARS PEOPLE DESPISE HER AND CALLED THE COPS ON PURPOSE CAUSE SOME OF THOSE SITUATONS DIDN'T WARRANT POLICE INTERFERENCE BUT HAD TO DO SO CAUSE OF THE 911 CALLS. NOT SAYING SHE'S RIGHT TO HAVE A 100 KIDS BUT PEOPLE CAN BE IGNORANT IDIOTS JUST CAUSE 911 IS AN EASY TO DIAL NUMBER. ALL SIDES SHOULD JUST NAIL THE COFFIN AND BURY THEMSELVES. NUFF SAID!!!

Hey TMZ why haven't you said anything about Octo Uterus having a melt down. Seems like reality is starting to sink in. She had a few of the babies in the hospital crying non stop, she then goes home to a house with three of the six crying non stop, So what does she do? She starts crying also. She is finally starting to see that all is not rainbows and flowers. That people are angry with her and do not support what she did. Just give these children up for adoption if you want them to have a normal and decent life. Stop using them as a meal ticket. They need a father and a mother and not competition with 14 others to survive.

ut oh    

In Ohio I lived among Amish and it was not uncommon for families to
have 1O or more kids per family and for some reason no one ever
questioned any of them I guess though it was all NATURAL births
and by the time the older ones were grown up they could care for the
younger ones still coming. They are hard working and their foundation
was the bible and love of the land. The kids were alwasy well cared
for without all the modern convveniences of TV and the internet.
Take a chapter from an Amish family and see how it works.

THE CHILDREN ARE NOT BEING PROPERLY SUPERVISED...PERIOD!    

If those babies are sent home (can't very well say home cause this twits has none), and something happens to them, the only ones that would be responsible are the HOSPITAL and CHILDREN SERVICES.

Something is definitely mentally wrong with this woman.

WTF??? Stop defending what this woman did. I understand that yes at this point those poor babies need help and $$$ but she doesn't deserve and $ or any of her children. I mean are u people retarded. She CHOSE to do this not like Jon & Kate they had 2 children and fertility problems. She had 6 children that already had disabilities and no job, no father, no home. She is an awful person who deserves for her children to be put in a safe home to people who really have fertility issues and want a family. That dr. should never work again and she should give them up. U know i started to feel sorry for her for a split second when i watched Dr. Phil but she brought it on herself. This is not like any other person that has used fertility treatments. This woman is sick and needs some serious help.
People wake up u have kids and they have done crazy things sure, but have any of u had the cops at your house 8 times in one year if so maybe we should call CPS on you cause something is seriously not right here.
PUT THE KIDS IN GOOD HOMES AND LOCK HER UP!

For those of you saying "put the kids up for adoption" or "put them in foster care" my question to you is how? From what I understand it is a LONG and drawn out process for adoptions here in America that is why a lot of people go out side the US to adopt. Look at even celebs. Putting them in foster care is also not a solution.I'm not saying I have an answer, but to just pull these children away is cruel. I agree that this woman has issues and has more children than I would EVER want to have some of you are making assumptions that are probably not true.

She is a piece of human garbage, who thinks that having kids is a way to make money.

Hold on, SHE called twice. TWO times had nothing to do with her doing something.

Come on, she had the right to call if she couldn't find her child...that's called *gasp* being a good mom. Wouldn't you do that?!?! The gun thing was not her fault, and tons of kids call 911 all the time playing with phones. This isn't weird. This is what happens when you have kids. I hope she and the kids turn out fine...notice how no one wants to take Jon and Kate + 8's kids away or the Duggars (they have 18 kids.)
