Octomom

Police Investigating

Child Neglect Claims

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


0_3hleausf_0_ff9hqizt
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.

the only surprise is that it took this long for anyone to step in. The first very show that was on fox was an eyeopener and a red flag.

With 14 kids I can understand how her house would be in turmoil but my question is she has a hair stylist but no one to help her with the kids and what does she need a hair stylist for?

Good riddance!    

She can't even take care of herself, let alone that poor, neglected child army of hers. It's probably only a matter of time until the kids are taken away from her. Poor kids.

I'm amazed to see people defending Nadya in these comments. What is it going to take for you to realize that she is an unfit mother? Will one of those poor children have to die or be seriously injured for you to understand what a terrible home environment they have? I really believe now that Nadya has friends working at CPS (she has bragged before that "CPS laughs at complaints about me"), if a witness reported the problems, the police came and STILL those children were left with her. The children are in danger. Pray for them!

Uhm… she can’t afford to buy her kids food but she can afford having a hair stylist for herself? SHAME ON HER. I always cringe when I see these moms with fake hair, fake tan, fake nails that are complaining about how they can’t afford to spend money on their kids. Well… duh!!!

Boy what a good friend that hairdresser is! Instead of offering to HELP octomom with all her troubles and work, she TURNS HER IN. What a piece of crap. Parents protect your kids from CPS, read this article from Nug Magazine

The hair "stylist" has more graffiti on her arms than there is in the house.

Here's what I think. I think there is a little more to this story then the hairstylist is letting on. She's been friends with Nadya for years doing Nadya kids hair (so she claimed) and never has she came forward and accused the kids of being neglected, abandon or of starvation until now and it sure makes you wonder why huh?


I suspect the stylist with the crazy tattoo and Nadya had a falling out and this is her nasty revenge against Nadya. We all heard her side, why don't we all wait to hear Nadya?


Last but not least, the house conditions should not come as a surprise to any of us, police or CPS since we've seen it deteriorated for 3 yrs now. We all knew of Elijah's trigger happy artwork/graffiti and she said herself that the plumbing was bad which is one of many other reasons she is moving out of the place. So why are we shock now of this news? UGH!


There's an explaination to the chair up against the bedroom door too. I'm pretty sure many of you by now have watch Nadya video diary on Ustream and can see how the kids run in and out of the room during bedtime, how she tried desperately to keep them in there during bedtime. Since there's no lock on the door, perhaps this was Nadya way to keep them in the room during bedtime, instead of having them run around the house all hours of the night. No, I don't approve but with 8 little ones underfoot during bed hours, well drastic calls, call for drastic matters and as you can see she was standing right there so the kids weren't in any immediate danger.

Nadya feeds her kids so that I know for sure is a big fat LIE saying she don't. We all saw the videos, the food and what she cooks and feed them and yes they do have clothes b/c we saw them too. My neighbors nieces and nephews run around the house with tops on too all the time (especially during the summer) whats wrong with that? Two of their kids are in potty training so yeah she often take the potties in the yard, on the front porch and even in the hall-- wherever she may be in home. No one wants to keep running upstairs with a 1 or 2 yrs old to put them on a PORTABLE potty everytime they have to go, especially when they have other house duties and kids to look after also.


Nadya kids are three and have out grown their cribs, we saw them climb out of them and the ones that's been taking out of the room were broken. Bunkbeds is not acceptable for 3 yrs old due to the facts the ones sleeping up top can climb over, fall and seriously hurt themselves... add that to the fact there's not enough room to put 4 sets of twin bunkbeds and o'con there is nothing wrong with sleeping on the floor. Better then sleeping on the ground outside, HOMELESS!

No, not making excuses here, I'm just being logical, thinking rational and seeing the matters from all angles and not just on a word of an ex-friend of the family whom I believe had some verbal conflicts with Nadya that care to run to the police and show TMZ some pictures she more then likely took out of retaliations. Apparently I'm not the only one who see it this way. Since two CPS, one detective and police officer enter the home and came out finding no truth to the hairstylist fault and exaggerating allegations.

I wouldn't stick up for this lady to save my life but enough is enough. The hair dresser is just looking for her 15 minutes of fame. Octomom's house has been shown on TV more times than I like to see. Sure, there's writing on the walls and toys and stuff but I have never seen it to be that 'filthy' that it should be condemned. Can't people leave her alone?

Umm, she has almost lost her home how many times, but she can afford to pay for a stylist? She is such a train wreck.
