Octomom

CHECKS INTO REHAB

Kids Left with Nannies

Nadya Suleman has checked herself into rehab for a prescription drug problem ... leaving her 14 kids without a mother for 30 straight days ... TMZ has learned.

A rep for Octomom tells us ... Nadya admitted herself into the Chapman House Drug Rehabilitation Center in Southern California over the weekend after acknowledging she's become dependent on Xanax ... an anti-anxiety drug ... which she began taking to "deal with stress."

Suleman's rep tells us, "Nadya wanted to get off the Xanax she was prescribed by her doctor and learn to deal with her stress, exhaustion and anxiety with professional help with a team of doctors. Nadya wanted to deal with her issues and make sure she is the best mother she can be.”

TMZ has obtained photos of Nadya on her way to the treatment center (above).

As for the kids ... we're told Nadya is using 3 nannies and 2 friends to divvy up the child care duties. She also has a driver to take the kids to and from school.

Neither Nadya's mother nor father have been tapped to care for the kids.

We're told Nadya can afford to pay for treatment by herself -- because she's been making a ton of money from her porn career -- but the rehab facility offered to pick up the tab anyway.

You mean to tell me that having 14 kids that you can't afford, causes stress? Adding to that at least two special needs children....still more stress?
WTH didn't she think about that when she had those eggs planted into her for her start of attention whoring? The kids pay the price, and in a huge way. The second ones paying the price? the TAX PAYERS. start adopting the kids out.

Rehab? She needs a psych ward. Xanax is the least of this nut jobs problems.

Did she file chapter 7 or chapter 13? If it was Chapter 7 that wiped out ALL her debts but if it was Chapter 13 she still has to pay back 10% of the bills and ALL the porn money should go towards the bankruptcy.

I thought she was going back to school to become a teacher? Now porn and drug addiction? I can't even think about this nut job right now. I'm sorry for her kids.

sadly TMZ has got the story wrong again...check Radar Online for the video of Nadya passed out drunk,,,she is an alchoholic & using drugs..NOT prescription....for a very long time...her own manager, months ago, said she was both an alchoholic & drug addict, but never did anything about it...allowed her to still be responsible for the care of the 14 kids & driving drunk then she spins this story so you, the public might feel sorry for her...she is a hero, because she checks herself into rehab for xanax abuse...it's crap & TMZ had a chance to write the truth about the abuse & child neglect....but chose to keep writing fluff pieces about nads...several have known about the real storey & more info is coming to light....she is so concerned to be famous & wealthy, she doesn't even know her own kids.....good for the kids tho...they have a month break from their child abusing mother,.. shame on YOU Gina!!!! |Oh well, what can you expect from a pornstar turned manager......btw, she DID NOT make a ton of money off her porn...she is still on welfare...

Most of that stress, anxiety, and exhaustion probably come from having 14 kids as a publicity stunt. The best way to deal with that kind of stress is to allow those kids to go to homes where they can get the love and care they deserve.

Anybody else, I'd say more power to 'em. In this case, look at how she's posing for the camera. This is calculated damage control designed to get sympathy. Since the truth is coming out about her treatment of the children and what a heartbreaking dysfunctional household she keeps (no matter what hearts and flowers June Cleaver fiction her manager spins to the media) they are resorting to whatever they can do to deflect from it. And the kids will be better off if she is gone too. They are who the media should be focusing on, not this shameless fame-chaser.

She should have done celebrity rehab, at least she would have gotten money for her 14 kids too.

I feel sorry for her. I hope she learns coping skills because she is going to have those kids with her for years to come. I think she's just doing (the porn) because she needs the money. She isn't running around with her hand out. Good luck to her.
