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've seen much much worse in households that only have one or two children. What a non-story.

The hairdresser seems like white trash out for her fifteen minutes of fame. Most homes with five or more kids will look that way at some point. Bunk beds can be dangerous for active little children and there's nothing wrong with girls wearing boys clothing at that age. However, Octomon desperately needs help with those children. Most people have trouble managing two or more toddlers without tearing their hair out.

Who the heck is tagging the walls INSIDE the house ?? I heard that CPS said the kids were okay, and left them there. I hope that house isnt a rental, cause it looks trashed !! She's an idiotic media whore and she's got to have some screws loose of her own. Those kids are gonna pay dearly for their "Mothers" insanity. Just curious, did anyone or is/was it ever required for her to have a psychological eval done BEFORE she had the in vitro ?

What's is going to take to remove these poor children from this mentally ill POS? How could the police not find any problems in that hellzhole she calls a house? I guess kids running around without pants on and crapping in the backyard is acceptable to California CPS.

Who tippped off Octo Tard that the police were on their way? She had to have cleaned up a HUGE mess before they arrived. CPS needs to show up on a regular basis UNANNOUNCED!

Finally, how does this woman afford a "hairdresser"? Welfare queens like this moron should be getting $16.00 haircuts from Supercuts.

She went on Dr. Drew's "Life Changers" and agreed to have a housekeeper come in & Dr. Phil was going to help her get certified as a personal trainer. WHAT HAPPENED?

the woman is definite unhinged - has been for some times - the Dr. who inseminated her should be made to pay for child support for the octuplets - and the other kids FATHERS should be forced to pay child support for their contribution. It is a sad situation and everyone involved is showing VERY poor judgement - especially this mother

thank YOU, Stephanie, for being the person that brought this out in the open. Dare I ask if you went to her home to do her hair? Or did she lock those poor children in that room while she left..? HOW does she have even $50 to get her hair done and NOT fix a toliet? PLEASE, I beg DCFS to step in and TAKE those children out of that awful environment!!!

As Charlotte responded I can't believe that a single mom can earn $7771 in 1 month on the computer. If you don't belive, just read this link www.LazyCash27.com

If I had 14 kids, my house might look a little like this, but I don't have too much pride to ask for help or accept any help that's offered to me. Lady, accept the help!!! As far as toilets outside, if I was potty training 6 kids, I'd have potty's in every room of the house and outside, so I don't see anything wrong with the potty's. However, I do see something seriously wrong with taking pictures or posting pictures of a child sitting on the potty. Leave the kids alone while they're doing their business!!

I think one of the most upsetting things about these pictures, aside from the looks of the kids, is the fact that not all of the graffiti on the walls is from the kids. It is obvious that Nadya did some of it herself. What kinda mother teaches her kids that writing on the walls is ok?

Stop calling this hairdresser names. She is trying to do the right thing for these children, which is more than I can say for California CPS.

Nadya has 14 children. That to much for any person. I know she chose this but the kids are here and it's about helping them. Some of her kids are special needs. (a bunk bed for a special needs child would be a accident waiting to happen) She refuses help the state will make you accept help. I feel some of the children should be removed and placed in the same home. The children that remain with her she needs a nurses aide, parenting classes, support group (special needs parenting) and a therapist.
