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.

Maybe it is time for octo morons own parents to take control of the situation and have Nydia declared incompetent and have a judge give the parents power of attorney over octo moron.

I strongly believe the State of CA should sue the Dr who unethically inseminated her with 14 embryos should be made to pay child support & arrears. Besides crazy octomom he is the QUACK who did this.

If you find the right person, you can get a great haircut for $20.00. There are people working in discount hair places like Fantastic Sams or even regular barber shops who really know what they doing. I have had my hair butchered in "high end" shops. If you are wearing a real simple, long look, just get it trimmed in a cheap place. The main thing that is going to make your hair look "good" is self styling and healthy hair to begin with. Which starts with a proper diet and conditioning, and not messing with it by harmful colors and bleaching and highlighting, etc.

I think her goal is to have the kids removed so she can get press of being a victim. She doesn't want the kids, she wants the attention.

Please keep her off this site.

You all are just jealous that Nadya is so beautiful. Isn't a mother of fourteen allowed to be beautiful? She works so hard at providing for those children, it's ok if she spends a little goverment money on her hair. Mother's Day is coming up you know. She's one of our premiere mothers. Queen of all the mothers even. Welfare Queen too. Give that woman a tiara. She should be beautiful and she IS beautiful! We owe it to her.

And? This is what she has been doing with all the "help" people have been sending from the beginning. But you go ahead and send your money to her, I'm sure she's overdue for a Nordstrom trip or her beloved mink lashes.

The State of California needs to step in and dole money to this biatch to make sure she doesn't spend taxpayer money on Tory Burch shoes and Brazilian Blowouts. This lady has the mental capacity of a 10 year old. She never thinks about tomorrow and she is only concerned with her wants and needs.

I am sure she is selling the Funds for the food stamps. When is she going to be taught a lesson?

I think the real question here is WHERE DOES OCTO HERSELF GO TO THE BATHROOM?!?! Is there another bathroom that she isn't allowing the kids to use? Is she also using potty seats? WTF?!?!?

Octomom is mental.

It's all about her and her pathological need for attention, which of course, TMZ gives her.

I feel sorry for those little kids, who are probably going to be wards of the state.

Oh my goodness. Those children need to go to good homes and live with families who will care for them and love them. The mother needs to go away, too. Stop making her "famous". She should be ashamed of herself. She's a freak, not a celebrity.

hahaha... on we get it now, the check bounce and Nadya refused to pay, they argue and Stephanie seeked revenge using TMZ. Pitiful, hey what are friends for?
3 years and you wait until you have a fallen out to try and hurt Nadya and get her kids taking away? Glad CPS, detective and police saw through your scheme, Stephanie. Your 15 minutes are up, you can go away now! LOL

I have a question for social sevices? With all the graffiti in the house and in the back yard did anyone stop to think that with that much spray paint and the special need kids she has in the house that all the fumes from the spray paint cans are going to be extremly harmful to the childrens lungs which are still growing and developing that with all that spray paint may have caused harm to the lungs and brain to theese children.
