UPDATE: Nadya “Octomom” Suleman has reportedly been receiving death threats after it was revealed she receives welfare payments for the care of her 14 children.
The mother, who gave birth to octuplets in 2009, reportedly receives $2000 a month from the State of California. The Daily Mail reports:
Among the nasty messages was ‘Die bi***. I’m not working for your f**king kids, you’re the one that wanted them.’
Suleman, who famously gave birth to octuplets in 2009, previously swore she would never go on the dole.
Now that she has fallen on hard times, the mother-of-14 qualifies for help because her total income is less than $8,000 per member of her household.
She said she can’t hold down a steady job because she has to care for her 14 kids.
It comes after the pictures that everyone was talking about last week – when she posed in nothing but nude coloured granny undies for UK’s Closer magazine to make a bit of cash.
She received $8000 for the shoot and said: “I have to do what I have to do to take care of my family.”
Of her body transformation she “‘pinged back into shape like a rubber band after the kids. I don’t know how I did it. I eat like a horse, don’t count calories and have never owned a set of scales.”
From the Daily Mail:
Nadya claims she has been celibate for 13 years and that all of her children were all conceived through a sperm donor as she simply has no time for a man.
She said: ‘I get too much male attention, but I won’t date until the octuplets are 18 – I live for them.
‘I know a lot of women like male attention, but I’ll go out with no make-up on and wear tracksuits, a wig and even a fake pregnancy stomach to put them off.’
