Octomom Wins Battle to Control Octofinances

1/9/2010 11:43 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

OctomomA judge in Santa Ana, Calif. took the side of Octomom Nadya Suleman yesterday and smacked aside a petition filed by some guy trying to get the court to appoint an independent guardian to monitor her children's money.

A random guy named Paul Petersen had filed, and been granted, a petition to have someone watch over their moolah since Octomom was striking all sorts of deals. But yesterday a California appeals court ruled in her favor, vacated the previous order, and called the whole thing an "unprecedented, meritless effort by a stranger."

Octomom can go about profiting off her children without further interference.

Paul Peterson is a person that played on the Donna Reed Show as a young child. His parents were in control of his money & by the time he was old enough to make decisions for himself, they had squandered away every dime of the money he earned. Not putting any aside for him, but spent ALL of his money.

They spent the money on themselves. Not better living arrangements for the family, but on clothing, cars, gambling, etc. Paul has since made it a carrier to make sure it doesn't happen to other children. TMZ should know this & not say he is some random guy!

This is just disgusting how people can have children just so they can get fame .She is obviously mentally ill and a psychiatrist even said so, heck her own mother even said so.

I know she is doing some TV show but some other country is filming it and a judge did order that the children make money for appearing on the show and that there lunatic mother is not allowed to touch it.

I doubt her show will last long, nobody will watch it and with no viewers they will cancel it. Lets just hope that everyone is smart and people do not tune in just to see her make a fool of herself. You do not watch and the show has the plug pulled and there goes this piece of trashes fame and fortune and paying for nannies, she will have to take care of her kids by herself instead of hiring nannies and you know that is exactly what she is going to do. She is going to play this loving mom on tv who spends time with her kids but as soon as those cameras stop rolling the kids are off to the nannies.

You guys are rarely polite or kind -- so here goes -- what a bunch of idiots you are. Try googling this "random guy" Paul Petersen who has had child labor laws changed in both Sacramento and D.C. and who is THE go-to guy for working children. There are no college funds or savings accts. set up for these kids, but the mom sure has had a lot of plastic surgery recently. SOMEONE has to go to bat for them when their own mother won't. The trouble with the inexperienced, uniformed and under-educated children hired by TMZ is that they can't figure out how to use the simplest research tools. Instead, they spread malicious bull. I love all these comments: Yes, do your homework, dumbos.

Paul Petersen needs to mind his own damn business. Guess the judge thought so too..... justice is served.

You guys show your age and how uniformed you really are sometimes. Geebus, Paul Peterson has been an advocate for child actors for many years. Not some random guy. I think the fact that he is looking out for these kids is not only admirable but necessary. She's gonna blow through money they earn quicker than Gary Colemans parents.

She's shady and crooked. She's in this for money plain and simple. Your piece showing her at 24 hour fitness the other night was not a random piece. WHO TOLD YOUR VIDEOGRAPHER TO GO TO A 24 Hour fitness that late at night anyway. SHE's MEDIA WHORE just like Shana Sands.

Her face is repulsive. I wish women would stop screwing with their faces. To any woman out there considering plastic will look like a scary monster when finished. I also cant believe TMZ did a pole to see how many people would do's not only scary looking.....she's crazy! She reminds me of that wife who cut her husbands wang off.
