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.

Agreed, Jenn. Having one toilet is illegal?
And referencing "graffiti" is not proof of neglect either, kids like to draw on walls.
The people screaming neglect now are the same ones that wanted to make damn sure she didn't get a tv show to make money off of her pregnancies. Make up your minds..

You people with wrong morals ,Nadya loves her children no way do I think she is making them in such bad conditions as you all are writing ..When I grew up many homes didn't have inside plumbing ,SOOOOOo The children all lived though this and was loved by their parents .To day one must have gold toilets ,BUT the parents are bringing them up using such horrible vulgar words so they can learn the bad of our world . They also are teaching them to be bullies by bulling old people who are neighbors or at stores shopping .teaching them to cheat and lie in school .NO GOD IN THEIR WORLD .Such angry children in today's world for they choose friends by the way they use bad words not by the way they live good smart life's .Shame on you all who are saying so many horrible words about this mom [ which by the way do you know how many families have 8 and 10 or more children today ??? ] She is young and is learning like we all have done ,she isn't beating them ,starving them or teaching them to be bullies or useing such vulgar words .I hear so many of your children doing and you are the so called educated MOM"S !!! DO Mind your own lives and leave her alone!! Pray for her needs each day I bet you will feel better !!!!!!

If this woman was black with all these children, she'd be called every name in the book, and accused of taking advantage of the system. The negative comments would be endless! Any woman who continues to have children without income to support them and a spouse to help raise them, is possibly mentally unstable and abusing the welfare system. Even her parents were upset with her when she decided to have more children after the 6 she already had! The beautican who reported her to child welfare, because she felt sorry for the condition the children are being raised in, yet charge her $500 for a haircut, sounds suspicious to me. It sounds like the two planned this to get octonut back in the public's eye. Any publicity is better than no publicity! I feel so sorry for the children.
