Octomom

Files for Bankruptcy

Octomom files for bankruptcy
We all saw it coming -- Octomom has filed for bankruptcy ... TMZ has learned.

Nadya Suleman filed for Chapter 7 today in federal court -- a month after going on welfare -- meaning she's hopelessly buried in a mountain of debt.

Chapter 7 is the most serious form of bankruptcy -- it's basically when you go belly up -- something Octo is well-familiar with.

The legal docs we obtained do not specify her creditors or how much she owes -- but it's pretty clear ... she's dead broke.

I know people who filed for bankruptcy to prolong the foreclosure process. It works.

What a dumb bitch. This is exactly what welfare breeds. No responsibility whatsoever. I remember reading about her getting her hair and nails done and now she is broke. I feel sorry for her kids. Oh wait, I will be paying for them also in the future. Tell her to call Obama, I'm sure he has an answer. What a bunch of losers.

So much for her food stamps being "temporary" for a few months. That said, the filing for bankruptcy will enable her to stay in her house a little bit longer, which I'm sure is one of the reason's she's doing it.

Bankruptcy stalls foreclosure, she's doing it to buy herself more time. She also lists herself as "Natalie Suleman" in her BK papers, and she does list her creditors but not how much she owes YET. She filed in pro-se (without an attorney) and she filed what is called a skeletal Bankruptcy. She filed the bare bones of the paperwork. The remaining paperwork is due by 5/14 and she will have to appear in court (if she files the proper paperwork) on 6/14.
However, the bank can and will file a special motion in the bankruptcy court to proceed with the sale. This is all public info online...
It's sad really...

Seriously? Anyone who spends over $500 on their hair is NOT broke. She should not be allowed to file for bankruptcy.

So if she's now declared bankruptcy, does that mean she gets to keep her tumble-down palace???

Didn't she just say that she makes money so she could afford to pay $520 for her hair-do?

Isn't it great that we all have to support her and her 14 kids! Please send them back to where they belong.

Whatever.

It doesn't matter if she does porn. It won't be enough money because she spends money like it's going out of style.

Buckle up, peeps, it's going to be a bumpy next 15 years.
