Octomom's House

A Picture of Squalor

4/25/2012 6:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Octomom and the horrible house conditionsTMZ has obtained pictures of Octomom Nadya Suleman's home that have triggered a police and child services investigation into allegations that her 14 kids are living in horrendous conditions and are being grossly neglected.

TMZ broke the story, Octo's hairstylist, Stephanie, went to La Habra cops Tuesday afternoon and filed a formal complaint. A La Habra cop and 3 reps from the Orange County Department of Children and Family Services went to Octo's house Tuesday night to investigate.

One picture shows two children pooping in a portable training toilet in the backyard. We're told the plumbing in the house is shot, and only one toilet is operational. 

Another photo shows Octo just after she got her hair done. What's shocking is that she locked her kids in the bedroom by propping a chair against the door so they couldn't get out.

Yet another pic shows the children's bedroom, with 2 cribs and a mattress. Stephanie told cops some of the kids are forced to sleep on the floor.

And there's more ... a pic shows some of the kids in the backyard, barefoot, dirty and wearing no pants.



Stephanie tells TMZ, "The kids are in desperate need of help, and I tried to help and she's not open to anyone helping her." She says the boys are wearing girl's clothes, they are neglected and Nadya is just incapable of caring for them.

Authorities stayed at Octo's home Tuesday night for an hour-and-a-half, and determined the kids were not in danger. There will, however, be follow-up with Children's Services.

I hope it wasn't Suleman herself who sold the pictures to TMZ (yeah she's in one, but she could have had someone take the picture or send them in).


It's just that that woman will do anything for money except work.

TMZ is doing a noble deed reporting octomoms disgusting neglect because it will make trashy breeders think twice before they try to get pregnant with childran they cant support who will think it will make them famous without having a means of supporting them. Trust me if octomom would have been praised and continued to be rewarded like she already generously has in the past trashy women would copycat the behavour. TMZ is showing that it is not that simple good for them.

Good riddance!    

Good for you. You took the time to get your expensive hair cut. I'm sure the kids enjoyed themselves while they were probably locked away all alone. All kinds of fun things to do. Let's play a game of pin the fork in the electrical socket, shall we? Or how many crayons we can shove up the small one's nose. Kids are sooo good at taking care of themselves!

figures her hair is professionally styled and she has 13 dollar osis+ hair straightening emulsion which if used every day only last 3 days with the amount of hair she has when there are cheaper brand hair products that do the same thing she has nothing but brand named products throughout the house weather it be hair products ziplock bags or the 160...0$ hedstrom trampoline in the backyard , seriously her hair is freshly styled it is as if everything she does her selfish need to look "good" is top priority over the kids cleanliness , really selfish and sad she had the kids for selfish reasons a real mother would not spend money on getting her hair done and focus on the kids , my mom never got her hair done or dressed in nice clothes but she made sure me and my sisters were clean and well dressed

That is a crack house. And those kids staring at the camera might be mentally challenged.
