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.

If you file bankruptcy, you can continue to live in the house for free for at least another 6 months.

Too bad she spent all the donated money on plastic surgery, trainers, gym memberships, expensive clothes, eye lash extensions, a house, private schools,a lawyer ,a manager, etc... what a waste. She's been playing the system all her life, she will inevitably end up 100% on welfare, whether it's next week or next year. It's all she knows.

I guess she is only broke when it comes to her responsibilities: feeding her kids, clothing her kids, keeping a roof over their heads, making sure they are taken care of. She sure isn't broke when it's time to get plastic surgery, get her hair done, get her French manicure done, buy her expensive coffee out, go to the gym... Wow I wish I was broke like that!

They should take her kids and put them with loving families. There are so many couples out there would love to have just ONE kid

What some countries do is take the children away and put them in protective custody under child welfare act(s). At that point, the children are taken care of properly by society and the burden/costs are charged back to the parents equally. Not just the man or woman, BOTH.

If the woman doesn't know who the father is, she then becomes 100% responsible for the costs. Funny how many women remember who the father was when that happens. In most cases, the woman has been collecting "shush money" to not report the father and gain an extra under the table income.

This system DOES work in other countries. The children are taken care of and no financial burdens on society.

srsly    

I do not believe she's smart enough to work the system THIS well to her advantage - so who is it that she has that knows exactly when to play each card she has? The entire "Octomom" thing is a well-thought-out scam imo, with some crappy ghetto Bernie Madoff calling the shots behind the scenes.

Ok, this will probably wipe out her current debt. What's her plan for not going right back into debt? Once bankruptcy wipes the slate clean you can't do it again for 7 years.

This is sickening. Suzy Orman stated Nadya had been given through donations enough money to last the kids until adulthood...and they are 3 years old, and it's all gone. She squandered it ALL away. She cared about the money more than she did the kids.

Hey quezcoti,
Do you even know what you are talking about? How is the far left responsible for this idiot having 8 kids. I BELIEVE (as you wingnuts are ALWAYS preaching) that American's have individual rights and that the government should stay out of their private lives? That means this idiot was simply doing what you and your uneducated ilk want. She went to a private Doctor and had it done. As far as the welfare, I know selfish, uncaring rethugs like yourself wouldn't care if those kids starved to death. I care about my fellow man, therefore I am more liberal in such matters. I geuss I cannot be a callous, unfeeling, sterile monster like you. Oh yeah, as far as "paying" for it? Rethugs are the only ones that pay taxes? Sure, in your narrow little world you probably think that's true. However, the truth of the matter is that "leftys" are proven to be more educated. Therefore, they make higher salaries and pay MORE taxes. All you have to do is go to a ******ger party and find out what they do for a living. Most of them live on social security and worker's compensation. You know, those "socialist" programs you hate so much. Think before you post.

Will we finally understand how much money she stashed in Harmony Enterprises? Her father deeded the property she is currently living in (yet failing to pay for) to this corporation run by Jeff Czech, her attorney. How many welfare moms do you know that has a corporation, an attorney, a manager and a hair stylist?

Probably another ploy to get money handed to her.

I have a problem with people and reality shows, especially the Kardasians and Octomom. It behooves me that they are getting lots of money for working at nothing. I acknowledge that the Kardasian girls have a business and earn money like the rest of us. But to get money for their daily life, I find disheartening. As far as Ocotmom needing money to take care of her kids. What did she expect when she got pregnant and had 8 kids. She wasn't thinking it through as to the hardship she would have and now they are going to pay her money for her daily life story. How many other families are out there trying to make ends meet and working honestly and still struggling. I have no empathy for her situation. I am so proud that I live in America and can choose what to watch and what not to. Thanks for letting me vent.

There's a problem here    

Except for the fact that this bytch pretty much F'cked a speculum and a turkey baster she's the queen of it all. Even welfare bytches don't have 14 kids because they know it ain't gonna work. Now bytch figures it is not all about her but about 14 poor doomed souls.

This is where the anti-choice crowd can step and put their money where their mouth is. After all, She, and her children are all gods children. Starvation stops a beating heart.
