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 ...

give me a braek    

these seem like normal occurrences... nothing very serious.... octomom is not at fault...
my son locked himself in his room when he was a little over 1 years old... he was curious about the knob and started playing with it, and put it in lock position and locked himself in the room.. I was able to unlock it from outside cuz I had a flat head screw driver... since then he hasn't locked himself in... but if I didn't have the means to open the door, I probably would of panicked (called my hubby, 1st, then 911)

How many kids do you guys think before a person would get flooded with money? Or would back to back births have the same effect as this? I am pretty broke, maybe this could be a solution for me. Then after I have all the kids I could go get my nails done, shopping, buy expensive makeup, go eat out every day, AND go on talk shows every day!

This situation is more than a normal person could handle, much less someone who is immature and self centered. I don't agree with what she has done, did and probably will do. Obviously she doesn't think about the conceqences of her actions.
Let's just hope the cops keep coming, even if the calls are unfounded. I fear that there will come a day when something terrible could happen. Fourteen children is a daycare full....that takes many eyes at all times, night and day. God forbid she looks away for one minute.

Honey... you are one vicious bee-otch. Step away from the computer and look in the mirror. Then pick up the phone and call a therapist. You are waaaaay to invested in this situation... a situation that has NOTING to do with your life.

Doesn't anyone else see that it will take one of these babies dying before something is done? To say the mom's actions were a silly mistake--a silly mistake is putting on a black and brown shoe in the dark--not having an additional 8 children. I personally, as a tax-paying American, do not want to fund this behavior. It is sad but the truth!! These poor kids should be put up for adoption, tie the mom's tubes and cut her loose. She has the mental capacity of a 12-year old girl collecting dolls. I feel for the grandparents!! They are caught between a rock and hard place. Of course these are their grandchildren....but even they know what is best.

I think everyone will quit "picking on" this woman when she stops putting herself out there. Anyone turned on TV lately and NOT seen this woman?. And when we tax payers are assured that we will not have to pay for what this woman thought she needed (somehow), we'll leave her alone.

Anyone can accidently lock themselves in a room, specially a child. Grandma probably knew the 5 yr. old followed her and didn't say a word to the mom. OK, so the front door was left open-my 19 yr. old son has left my front door open, should I contact DCFS? Instead of continuing to BASH this human being, why not show more sympathy. JERKS!

How in Cowboy Hell did she get the money for in-vitro. I am mad because the economy is bad and I can't pay my bills and she has 14 kids that we have to take care of.

I wish all the hype about her would go away.

If she were married, none of the hype would be around this.
