Octomom

Back on Welfare

1/6/2013 4:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0104-nadya-suleman-octomom-tmzIt's only been five months since Octomom got off welfare, but TMZ has learned the honeymoon's over for your tax dollars -- because she's back on government assistance.

Sources close to Octo tell TMZ, Nadya Suleman signed up for welfare again this week after her October rehab bills devoured most of her savings.

We're told the mother of 14 will be getting $1,800 a month for food, $1,000 for emergency cash, as well as Medi-Cal benefits to help with mental heath and dental issues.

According to sources, Octomom only plans to use the welfare money while she gets back on her feet -- or on her back.

TMZ broke the story ... Octo went on welfare last March, but was able to get off guv assistance in July ... the result of a pile of cash she scored from stripping and masturbation porn.

That's fine... for the kids... she can't keep herself together, but at least the money does (mostly) go to the children.

The foodstamps are one thing even if the girl was working there is no way she could afford babysitting and groceries. But $1000 in emergency cash??? What??? Huh??? Who???? Why???? I want her kids to eat and go to the dr and dentist when needed but I do not think she should be trusted with cash as she will only have her hair done, or buy herself makeup and clothes, waste it frivolously. The kids have a right to nourishment and health are despite everyones views on the mother.

Who cares? She is irrelevant and has been on welfare her entire adult life. The clerks at Albertson's have regularly tweeted how much groceries she got and that she paid for them with an EBT card.

That trip to the welfare office was just for re-certification. Nothing to see here, just more of her sponging ways.

$120 per month per person (15) a month for food. At first the amount seems large til you do the breakdown. She need to relinquish her kids. It won't work.

$1800 to feed 9 people isn't really a lot in today's market.. and just how far is $1000/month going to take you? Octo is being cut down by others for needing welfare assistance, but it's not exactly a fun and easy ride. Personally, I couldn't handle it. I don't make much money, but I make more than what I would collecting a government check that could barely, if at all, pay my bills. Sorry, but I like to have alittle bit of cash to have this thing called FUN once in awhile and you can't do that living on welfare. It's not a life worth having. So, I do give Octo credit for at least attempting to get off welfare even if for just alittle while. I know a lot of people who are completely contempt being on welfare, having no clue why they are so miserable.

Mental help for the kids right and not for her mental health since she decided to do this to herself?

Take this all the way back to the beginning when we first heard about this person. I wonder how much money we have already spent on her. We have a mentally disturbed, celebrity boxing, self pleasuring, nanny hating, CPS involved, narcissistic, self involved, pill popping, train wreck and 14 children that call her mommy. By the time we line out what we will put out for her and her offspring it gives me a headache. ICK!

Leave her alone. If she needs the help then she should get it. She has kids to feed. Tbh I wouldn't be surprised if some nut try burning down her house with her and her kids in it. It's like these morons don't see that there are kids in this and they need to be taken care of. Ur hatred for this woman is blinding u all.

People...let me tell you....I have watched my 3 Grandchildren. And it's daunting. Can you imagine how hard this poor girl's life is (yes she did it herself...said a million times but FOR GOODNESS SAKE ...MOVE PAST THAT) Now What? She admits that! Be glad that she loves these kids and wants to mother these kids and is doing her best. I bet NOBODY ELSE READING THIS could take care of that many kids all day every day. It's hard work. Giver her credit. And then when they write bull**** like her house is a mess....you should see the mess when watching 3 kids...I couldn't imagine 4,5, 6 7 God forbid 8. There just couldn't be cleanliess or organization. So you all should stop judging and picture yourselves trying to take care of those kids day after day...and be glad that she hasn't dumped them back on society like a lot of people do. She's trying to support them. SHE'S TRYING!!!

Now we'll hear from people that don't live in America, let alone in California, all crying about their precious tax dollars.
