Welfare Mom Blows $520


4/25/2012 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Octomom check for $520 for haircutsOctomom Nadya Suleman -- who is pulling in $2,000 month in food stamps thanks to California taxpayers -- spent $520 on a Brazilian blowout, and 2 cuts ... TMZ has learned.

Octo's hairstylist Stephanie tells us ... she went to Octo's house on April 18 to cut her hair and do a Brazilian blowout -- a chemical straightening treatment. Octo owed Stephanie for an earlier haircut, and the grand total came to $520. Octo also paid Stephanie $80 for hair products. Mind you -- Octo wrote the check at a time when she was in dire need of welfare.

Stephanie -- who went to cops yesterday and filed a report claiming the 14 kids were living in squalor -- tells us she couldn't believe Octo was spending this kind of loot on haircuts when her plumbing didn't work. 

Stephanie says a plumber had been to the house recently and told Octo it would cost $150 to fix the pipes, but Octo declined, saying it was too expensive. As a result, the kids have to use portable training toilets in the backyard.

Octomom and the horrible house conditions
By the way, Stephanie also says while she was cutting Octo's hair, the mother of 14 locked her kids in the bedroom. Take a look at the pic -- notice the chair she used to keep the door shut.

9:00 AM PT: Octomom just walked one of her kids to a school bus -- we asked about the giant haircut check, but she had no response. PS -- nice Elmo slippers.

My sister in law is the best mother in the world to her 3 well behaved kids and CPS launched a full investigation on her because some neighbors complained that her kids "talked" to loud in the hallway of their apartment building and this woman doesn't get her kids taken away? I've been trying to have kids for years and can't and this woman can have 14 and take care of them this way? Give me a few and I will make sure they get the proper care they deserve.

why does she still have her kids? This woman is a few cards short of a full deck . Take her kids and give them a good home full of love and respect or else they will grow up disruptive and harmed.

She is a psychotic mentally unstable waster of space that simply did what she did to take advantage of the system like alot of the folks (many ethnicities but one mainly) do to get our tax dollars to pay for their kids free lunches, and allow there tax (under the table working husbands) free husbands to work and they get 1200 per child to cater to their kids needs...Im sick of this crap and she needs to be locked up and have those kids put in a nice home hopefully>>>this woman disgusts me! like alot of the ladys walking down the stree with 4 kids in their hands and another one on the way....When are we going to do something about it...oh yeah never >>>> thanks obama! not a american citizen at all anyways!

For Christ sake people wake up these babies need to go to people that would love to offer them a chance in life. She has no time for 14 children and still be so focused on herself. I do not understand this system of ours. This makes me sick!

I cannot comment on hearsay allegations, such as those coming from Stephanie the hairdresser, but I have eyes, and while her home is sparsly furnished and some areas are quite messy, I do not see squallor. We have plenty of people in this country who live in squallor. Look at pictures of how some of the nations poorest residents, residents of Appalacha live. That is squallor.

It does not take $520.00 to look your best for a job interview. This woman is abusing the system, and those poor kids. I'm sick of hearing about this women. The doctor her gave her the IVF treatments is a criminal, and so is she.

I'm appalled that the government, state of California and Child services don't have a handle on this out of control situation. As a single mom, who works full time to support my child, but makes "enough" in the governments eyes to not get help, she makes me sick. She is a typical abuser of government help.

I hope CPS also takes a look at notamams rediculous ustream dribble where the older kids drag a tup by the ear. Or another yanks their hair. These children are abused on a daily basis. WHO buys the spray paint for the older boys to tahg the whole house and property? Oh that's right, she quit paying the house note so she doesn't give a dam. Her sense of entitlement oozes from her putrid pores. Gimme, gimme, gimme.

This skank is trying so hard to replace Casey Anthony as the most hated female in America. ( She's to immature to be called a woman)

What a disgusting person. If she wants her hair done, she can go up to a school like the rest of us broke people but no, she is taking advantage of welfare because that money could have gone to food. She doesn't need any blow outs or products either. Locking the children in the room is disturbing and she needs to grow up. Just take away the kids already. They are going to be in therapy for many years and also have Borderline Personality Disorder and they can blame that on Octomom.

Did anyone notice in these pictures with her hair, that there is a chair locking a door!!!? WTF. What is she locking in there, 20 more of her hidden kids. This lady is nuts. The children need to be taken to a big ass foster home and she needs to get fixed and do jail time for stealing our hard earned dollars to do her crappy, split-end hair.
