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.”
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.
Well, this is kind of unexpected. Not that she went to rehab, that part’s awesome – when you’re a single mother with fourteen kids, I imagine you have to be in your best shape possible – but her drug of choice. She’s always seemed kind of unbalanced, you know, with the whole crazy pregnancy thing and all, but Xanax? I thought people who were addicted to Xanax just kind of sat there and nodded off. Is that wrong? I would have thought she was more of an uppers girl. But then again, maybe she got addicted to being chill, which would have been a problem with her before. Because she has fourteen f-cking kids.
Get well soon, girl! For real though, work on your issues because, no shame, but you’ve got a lot of them.
