Nadya Suleman “Octomom” and her 14 children are going on welfare. According to Radar Online, “Nadya is running out of money very quickly. She’s still hoping to pull off a deal that will pay her a fortune but at this point it just doesn’t seem possible.”
Since her octuplets were born, Nadya has supported her family by selling access to her life to magazines, etc. She was recently hoping a reality TV would save her financially, but the show fell through. According to Radar, the failure of the show has left her in financial ruins.
A TV show deal with Game Show Networks was in sight and she pitched a book to publishers, but nothing has worked out, according to Radar.
“She was hoping for merchandising, but those never came through,” the source said. “And she’s written a book but no publisher wants it.”
On top of everything else, she was threatened with eviction back in April. First she flaunted her miracle birth with countless interviews and TV spots, and after the paparazzi disappeared, now she can’t afford it.
“Nadya has nannies and huge expenses raising 14 children,” the source said. “She needs a lot of money just to keep up with the basics. And now the income has dried up and she didn’t make enough in the past year and a half to live off it.”
This won’t be the first time she’s been on welfare either.
“She’s been on public assistance before,” the source said.
