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 guess us tax payers will be feeding and clothing her and children. What an evil thing to do to a child not the welfare. THE FACT THAT SHE BROUGHT 14 IN THE WORLD AT ONE TIME. Those are going to be some messed up kids.

See Lil, that's real people doing what they need to do to survive. About 16.5 million kids live in poverty in the US, 7.4 million live in extreme poverty(11k a year for a family of four)yet this professional leech spends all this money on PS, designer clothes, and $520 on her hair, at the same time uses welfare. She doesn't have a job but thinks she's entitled to live in a big house and in the lap of luxury. She is so disconnected from reality.

Is a fertility clinic listed as one of her creditors? I'm wondering how a welfare mom pays monthly storage fees for her remaining 29 frozen embryos.

Her get a job? and who is gonna wanna babysit all those kids while she's at work?? Surely not just one person!?! Her money would all go toward child care--what about paying bills and enough groceries to feed them all? Can you imagine her full grocery cart just for a weeks supply of food and the load to carry in!? That would be a job in itself! She's in over her head! How can one cook three meals a day for such a group of kids and do everthing that needs to be done? Now what Nadya? You sure aren't winning........

There is no happy ending here. Doesn't matter that she has a degree - no job she could get could pay enough to cover child care alone. Doesn't matter that she's a single mom - if there was another working parent, say with a middle income salary of $75,000 - not enough to take care of a family of 16 living in suburban California.

And, as much as I think the situation is despicable, I don't want to see someone as clearly mentally ill as she is, be forced into porn, imaging that is the panacea for her problems. I think everyone is so annoyed with her, they want some kind of retribution; but having a personality-disordered woman performing sex on film is too sadistic and degrading even for this situation.

Those poor kids.

myopinion    

I am sick of this psycho woman...they need to find a rich family that can properly take GREAT care of these children and lock her away in the mental institution. These stars like to adopt lots of children Angelina and Brad (LOL)

Guess what people, she doesn't own the home she lives in, she's merely a renter, therefore she will not get to remain in the home while she goes through bk, unless her landlord allows it. No matter what happens to her I think the judge should make it illegal for her to use her children to gain media attention or money. She may not have had 14 children by having sex, but she still purposely had them and for that she and her doc should bare financial responsibility for them.

If Octonut lived in China, this would have never happened.

Its unfortunate that she did this to herself essentially but ironic given that most better known families who've had several kids at once are "awarded" all these items. Whether it was the Duggards or the Gosslins and reality shows to go with it but yet she's being treated almost the total opposite (not that she didnt partially deserve it)

myopinion    

I just heard that psycho octomom on Dr. Drew she sounds like she is on drugs her words were slurred and she was saying if she doesn't live she has a family to take all her children, she also stated she is tired and can't do it anymore.

Another bid for attention from that repulsive pig. Maybe she can go live with Dr I-brake-for-$$-celebs-only Drew who likes to kiss her ass almost as much as TMZ does.

How did octo-stupid think she was gonna support all these kids ? 6 are hard enough for a couple, much less for someone this loony.
