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 am the second oldest of eight. We never had a house that looked like that. Dad was in the service and over seas alot during that time. Seems like dad came home just long enough to knock mom up and it was back over seas again. So mom basically raised us alone. We had to clean up any messes we made and we never even thought to draw on the walls. Mom always had things for us to draw on. We all did chores and chipped in to help the younger ones. But this whack job has six more than we had. So I have a solution for her, there are lot of people out there that love children and can't have any. They may be down on their luck right now and might need a place to stay. Why not find someone that can live there with the family and help out. Maybe have a few that come in during the day and donate their time for the kids. That way Octo can get a job and help pay her own way for once.

Her friend is probably right to some degree. It looks like Naya really needs some help with them. Maybe they could just appoint an overseer to make sure she takes bunk beds or whatever is needed for the kids, and takes help in watching them instead of locking them out of her hair.


She needs someone like Britney's dad maybe to just make sure things are operating smoothly. She seems like she needs a house manager.

Well done. Here are the test results: You are a horrible person. I'm serious, that's what it says: "A horrible person." We weren't even testing for that.

I can't stand this woman. It would be cheaper for the State to provide a home and 24/7 child care than to remove the kids. IT'S ABOUT THE CHILDREN. HELP!

Umm ok...    

The kids are not the only ones writing on the walls. It looks like Nadya must have spray painted the door "do not enter" and there is more black spray paint on a wall of a stick figure and the word "HI" next to it that looks like it was not drawn by a child. SHE is writing on her own walls! Nadya Suleman is obviously mentally disturbed and these kids need to be placed in other places so their individual needs can be assessed and tended to. She's CRAZY!

Are people nuts? This woman WAS given help! She was given millions of dollars. Suzie Orman said she had enough money to take care of those kids until they reached adulthood. She squandered it all away! She will just do it again with any money donated.

She needs to get a job!

This is what many of us have been saying since the beginning. It's about f'g time someone reported her. Too bad the dorks at CS didn't take the kids away immediately.

The hair dresser should try to spend more time in the house just visiting with Nadya and in effect be helping to watch the kids at the same time.

I guess one of the kids will have to die before CPS steps in. Boggles my mind that the very people who are supposed to be protecting these kids, are letting them down. If the plumbing is shot in the house, the house should be condemned. It is not a livable dwelling without plumbing.
