Octomom

I Didn't Want to Go on Welfare ...

BUT I HAD TO

4/1/2012 3:08 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



0401_octomom_videoOctomom tried her best to avoid going on welfare, but she says "becoming totally destitute" forced her hand ... temporarily. 

As TMZ first reported, Nadya is getting $2,000 a month from the State of California, which can only be used on food. 

We spoke to her at her home today, where the mother of 14 said she's hoping she only needs the assistance for a month or two at the most.

Octo has been receiving death threats since the news of her welfare broke, but she feels people should be directing their anger towards those who are abusing the system and not at her. 

Plus if she doesn't get some help, we might see more pics like these. Lesser of two evils ...

Told you so dumbass    

She had her kids before her hudge delivery on SS anyway and THINKS that is not a hand out. This **** of "Oh my kids are disable" cause they are slow is the newest rage. She is a looser and always will be. We all knew she could not handle these kids and would end up on the welfare roles and told her so. now her thing is gonna be go get the cheaters and leave me alone. Please.......excuses are for loosers and she is a really BIG one! S***bag! They should make the doctor who helped her do this pay for them ALL!

Oh leave her alone! better that she gets the tax payers money than someone who gets off a plane claims refuge status and then uses the money to fund some dumb ass terrorist cell.Really it comes down to don't punish the children for the sins of the mother!

If anybody is abusing the system it is her because she decided to have all them kids without a father. So she is basically is abusing the system because there are families who have working parents who do not make enough and need help from the government. So she needs to get off her ass and get a full time job.

I think the doctor who did her invitro should pay her aid and not the state. Didn't they take away his license to practice medicine because of what he did with her? Then, it should be his reponsiblity!!!!!

Didn't she just make $8,000 posing nude for some European magazine? Why is she still getting $2,000 a month if she got that amount of money?

Any doctor who would implant embryos in a woman who already had six children she couldn't care for should be locked up and stripped of his license. These kids should be adopted out, Mom is clearly in way over her head

I feed, clothe and house my family of 5 on LESS than the $2000 per month disgusting Octomom is getting just for food. Maybe she should move out of her ritzy house....how could she possibly qualify for welfare paying so much per month? SCAMMER. What a parasite on society. GET A JOB OCTO.

TMZ, leave this woman alone already. What you guys are doing to her is not right. OK you said she is on welfare, so you got your point across. Now, its time to leave her alone. Such a shame to make fun of someone's tough time and misery. OK she had all those babies, she realizes she made mistakes. Now, respect her privacy and leave her alone people. Let this woman raise her children the best possible way she knows how. Do not step on her wounds any longer.
