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.

That 500 bucks she spent on that hair cut could have fixed her plumbing problems and then some. It's time to take those kids away, huh?

I said it in a previous post. Where does a person on welfare gets the money for massive amounts of botox and collagen, and gym? It doesn't add up. Then I knew. She gets money every time her picture or a story about her comes out in the news. Every time she gives an interview on tv, she gets money. But that's money paid to her directly, it's not reflected as a steady job. That's why she qualified for welfare.

many will blame her when in reality you need to blame the state for setting up the system where people like her are approved for it

$520 on hair? I hope that includes all the kids! My wife and I together don't spend that on haircuts in 3 years! My parents would have bought some clippers and shaved their heads to save on cuts and shampoo before they told a plumber to hit the road. Why pay $2000 a month to feed these kids when plenty of people want to adopt. Use the 2g's to feed and house octomom in a prison cell. Where I grew up, most people still don't bring home that much money after working 40 hours a week. Why is a 9 year old allowed a can of spray paint? You have to be 18 to even buy a can these days. This dumb woman needs to use her beauty money to hire some baby sitters. Why did she waste money putting her kids in private school? Public school isn't good enough for a welfare mom? This woman has mental problems. She can't take care of herself, much less 14 kids. SOMEONE PUT HER IN JAIL!

Trust me, that check bounced. Where the hell is Nadya going to get $520.00 from? Clearly Stephanie complaint is about getting paid and has nothing to do with the kids well being other then she is using them to get back at Nadya for not paying her.

See, detective Sandy figure it all out! :D

Eighteen (18) days after crying destitute and hitting rock bottom, this POS spends $520 on her hair while collecting govt. assistance. Guess she thought her week long media begging tour paid off big time.

SEND HER ASS TO JAIL for fraud!!!!!!!!!!!!

octomom's out of this world gross, but is anyone else also disgusted by the hairdresser's actions here? she called the cops and they investigated and found the living conditions to be suitable, so she leaks this to the media? bah humbug to both of them.

Hey sandy/teamnadya...

You wanted proof that nadya is receiving gov't assistance and now you have it.

You wanted proof that she spends money frivolously, and there you have it.

You wanted proof that her house is a mess, and there you have it.

you wanted proof that the kids are in danger, and there you have it. (Locking kids in a room with a chair!)

What more proof do you need???
