Octomom, Nadya Suleman filed for bankruptcy Monday, saying in a court filing that she has as much as $1 million in debt.
Among the creditors listed are Amir Haddadin (who owns her La Hambra home), Orkin Pest Control, Kaiser Permanete, the DMV, Sparkletts Bottled Water, Verizon Wireless, DirecTV and Sylvan Learning Center.
The news comes just five days after Orange County Social Services announced it had found no signs of neglect following an investigation into reports it received that the tabloid fixture had been neglecting her brood.
“I have had to make some very difficult decisions this year, and filing Chapter 7 was one of them,” Suleman said.
The La Habra mother of 14 reports up to $50,000 in assets in federal court filings, which means she owes more than 20 times her net worth.
Suleman had sought protection from her debts under Chapter 7 bankruptcy, which means a court-appointed trustee would have liquidated her assets to pay off creditors before she is discharged from most of her debts. According to the filing, she owed money to more than 20 parties, including utility companies, her father and a Christian school.
Among others, Suleman owes money to her father, the city’s water department, DirecTV and Whittier Christian School, where at least some of her children are students.
Suleman also owes more than $30,000 in rent payments on her four-bedroom house.
Suleman reportedly “doesn’t consider a masturbation video porn, because it’s a solo mission.”
She has vowed in the past never to get into pornography, but she has made $10,000 for posing topless.
Suleman has sold photos of herself and her children to tabloids, including a spread of topless photos to a British magazine. She has also agreed to answer pay-per-minute phone calls along with other D-list celebrities and reality television personalities.
All Suleman’s children were conceived through in vitro fertility treatments. Her octuplets are the world’s longest-surviving set.
