Police Investigating

Child Neglect Claims

4/25/2012 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The La Habra Police Department and the Orange County Dept. of Family and Children's Services showed up at the home of Octomom Nadya Suleman Tuesday night, after receiving a complaint from her hairstylist that the mother of 14 allows her kids to live in horrendous conditions.

Octomom's hairstylist went to the PD today and she tells us ... she told cops she has been in the house and seen the following:

-- the plumbing is a disaster ... there is only one working toilet in the house
-- some of the kids are pooping on portable training toilets located in their bedrooms and in the backyard
-- the kids appear malnourished and unbathed
-- she observed Octomom locking her kids in a bedroom while she tended to personal matters
-- the house is filthy

The stylist made other allegations as well.

When the cop and 3 Children's Services workers arrived and walked inside, you can hear Octo say, "Excuse the graffiti." 

The authorities stayed an hour-and-a-half and left.  We're told they determined the kids were not in danger so they weren't removed from the home, but there will be a follow-up with Children's Services.

We're told the authorities will continue to investigate.

Some of that "art" on the wall is pretty detailed for a child, not to mention high up. I wonder if the hairstylist and octomom came up with this scheme to try and get Nadeya a reality show sitcom? Seems like everyone has one? Think about-who wouldn't tune in to at least one episode? And, was that a pool in the backyard? Yikes! I understand the potties outside-lets face it potty training a bunch of little ones who might all have to go at the same time (usually when they are playing) can get crazy. Just keep 'em clean. That's how we didn't and yes, the kids wore their underpants and a tshirt in hopes of not missing the toilet when "the pp dance" started. Let's just hope that this mom learns to make some better decisions in the future of her kids. As for displacement-I would take all 14 in a heartbeat, but, I'm not sure they would enjoy farm living on the other side of the country.

What you ALL need to get straight is since the kids were NOT taken, the stories told by the hairdresser were NOT true, or they were exaggerated. Just BECAUSE someone says something, it does NOT make it true.

The woman is unfit in my opinion. But if the Child Services found everything in order than the Hairdresser needs to be investigated for fraud. (They should concentrate on the fraud of her welfare check going to her hair). Once again hard working people paying for slum.

My God why are you people so mean and cruel? People all over America ae receiving welfare but you do not want to help this mother? you would rather see the children removed from the home rather than the mother receive help?

On the Gosslin show the children also had potties in their rooms! How old are these "8" toddlers anyway?? Three years old? So what is wrong with them using potties?

Please tell me how in the world is she going to keep a home clean with 14 children under the age of 8 or 9 and EIGHT "three year children" with no one to help her?

All of this hate needs to stop!

The person who made the complaint is a low-life POS. If you're so worried about the kids, offer to help.

Where's the father or the doctor who helped produce these children?

It was BS that her hair stylist was being vendictive for some reason.WIth 14 kids, I'd have a messy house and numerous pottys all over the place too.I'd occassionally lock the buggers in the bedroom just for some PEACE, let alone private personal business.people should cut the MOM a break all ready.

This is sad that those kids has to endure the selfishness of their mom. And sickens me that those offices that went there closed their eyes - I surely hope the follow up people care enough
about those kids do something, before it comes to a should have, would have, could have. The mom's WACKED!!

there is no hope for those kids living in those conditions and having a looser mother like her. She is so dispicable as a parent and the kids would absolutely better of being adopted by loving parents that could give them the time and attention each child needs and deserves, after all they didn't ask to brought into this world and this looser mother is just too ignorant and incapable of giving them the mere basics. She is sooooo disgusting......

I feel that this woman made a bad choice to get pregnant with so many babies and she already had kids to support too. Now she is doing the best she can to raise them and care for them. I do not think of her as a bad person at all, some people should try to take care of several little ones all day long and then think of 14 of them all day long. It must be so hard and to me I am willing to donate money every month to help her. If we all gave her $2 you cannot believe how much that would be totaling to and she really needs it. She has tried to support her kids without taking public assistance and posing semi-nude but when pushed to the brink she did what she had to do. Life is hard enough as it is imagine trying to feed,clothe and house 14 kids??? I am here for her, anyone want to start a fund for donating to help this woman? You mothers out there can relate to this situation---I was there myself and struggling with just supporting two and me on minimum wage.

Sad really. What should have been what could have been. What is reality. No one person can take care of that many children with out help of all kinds. What is to be done now? she needs help. she has 14 human beings in her care. she does not need a trusted person in her life selling her story. We have compassion for every dog in the shelter, but none for humans?

Octomom is unfit to raise those kids. Those poor kids should be taken to a safe and sane environment.
