Octomom's House

A Picture of Squalor

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

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.

funny how she has money to get her hair done i dont even have kids and i cant affored to have someone come to my house and do my hair i have to do it my self when i can scrap together the extra $20 to get the stuff. maybe she should cut out all the beauty treatments (hair, nails, makeup, ext) and she could afford pants for those poor kids. she makes me sick

Kids learning to use the potty use it wherever, whenever. Yes, they poop outside (the horror, you people must have never had children). Not wearing pants.... if I lived in CA pants would be the least of my problems.
The only thing I have a problem with is letting the kids and/or mom draw all over the house. The rest sounds pretty normal.

Why does she have a hair stylist if she needs money for her children!

I don't see any proof that children are locked in that room...and is that picture showing those kids pooping in those toilets? Their shorts are still on.

The doc who impregnated her should help pay for raising these kids. It's partly if not all his fault for getting her in this situation.

She obviously should have spread her legs for Playboy for a few bucks, but then again that money would have gone into her face. Nevermind..

the operative word here is 'HAIRSTYLIST' why does she even have a hairstylist with 14 children that are possibly being neglected?! that just doesn't add up at all. how's that for putting the cart before the horse.

Wait…I don't understand, just last week she said people couldn't stand the fact that she was a good mother. Could it be she was lying? Those poor kids don't have a chance, if she can't afford them now than wait until they're in they're teens. She should give them away to some religious organization. Maybe she could raffle them off on the 700 club or something.

Maybe somone one can offer her some constructive help instead of waiting for it all to go horribly wrong. Making mean comments about her is clearly not the way forward and the children are here and living in a obscenely affluent country where tv comapnies are happy to pay loads to drunken foul mouthed individuals who live together in a pig sty or to teenagers who are unfit to be parents. I am not saying she was right to have all the children but there are far worse out there than her. Give her a bloody break ffs!!! How can she work with so many children to look after? She is not a murderer, get over with all the negativity to her. What is the answer? Kill her?

Actually I smell something fishy and it's not just Octomom's nether region. The house, all though it has writing on the walls and the wood pealed off the door, it all looked too neat inside compared to all the chit outside everywhere. The only place that reflects how the house really looks all the time is Octo's bedroom. It seems to me that Octo and friend decided to unofficially beg for help and money. They cleaned up the house a little so that it wouldn't look that bad so that the kids wouldn't be taken away. But by letting us in we saw more than she wanted us to see. If you notice Octo has a bedroom set, the kids have a mattress on the floor. Octo gets to use the one working toliet and the kids go outside. Octo spends a lot on her hair, products, and you can't even tell which child is boy or girl because she won't spend it on their hair. But once again I ask, who gave the kids spray paint? Who does that?

Octomom has some serious mental issues.

We all know and knew that California taxpayers would be paying for her stupidity, and now it goes into 3rd gear. Soon, it will be taking these kids into foster homes, because Nadya simply wanted attention, which TMZ, of course, indulges her in. It's sick.
