Watch Out, World: Octomom Is Back on Welfare

From TMZ:

It’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.

Well, here we are again. Right back in that uncomfortable place where Octomom shouldn’t get so much assistance for making a very, very poor decision, but her huge brood of children shouldn’t suffer for their mother’s emotional problems. Oh, and where we all know that it’s only a matter of time before she does something really awkward and sad to make some fast money. I didn’t think we’d be back here so soon, but I guess there’s no use in thinking about that now.

Is the world even ready for another Octoporn?

  • I’m going to say up front that this is going to sound callus but here goes…they should have taken all of those kids away a long time ago when they were young and not used to being together. She has already made comments that strongly suggest she is not emotionally supportive to the children. If they had taken the kids away a long time ago, the pain of splitting them up would have been substantially minimized. Now, seeing the way things are going, they are either A.) going to be stuck with her OR B.) eventually handed over to the system and now they are older and it will be more difficult for them to find homes and it will be more emotionally traumatic to be split up.

  • Scout, you are so right. It would be devastating to the octuplets to be split up now. They are all each other has. She has neglected and abused them from the get-go. You will never see them with a smile in any picture with her in it. Many people know what’s really going on behind her ‘super mom’ facade. Hopefully it will be made public before all the kids end up on the streets, in jail, dead or in a mental institution.

  • I for one do not believe Nadya Suleman has ever been off Welfare. This may have started as far back as the first child she gave birth to, then the more children she had the more money the state paid. This, in my opinion is Octomom’s regular job.
    It has been proven over and over again this woman is not a good mother, neglects the toddlers and the twins. NONE of their needs are being met. We have all seen pictures of her previous house, horrible.
    The older kids should have been removed a very long time ago and the 8 babies should never have been allowed to leave the hospital with her.
    Nannies and close care givers of the kids are now starting to speak out. Suleman will never get a real job, she doesn’t even clean, cook, do laundry at home and she is going to get up everyday and go to work..never going to happen.
    Nadya Suleman will be on the dole for the rest of her life.
    3 Sure things in this world, death, taxes, and paying for Octomom.

  • Why was this woman ever allowed to breed….benefits are there as a backbone for people when they need it, yet it is abused. The children would be better off elsewhere. I agree with everyone else here, it should have been done when they were younger. What are the authorities waiting for…a child to be seriously injured…or accidentally swallowing some of her pills?

  • you wait til the day an underaged child calls your hotline because their household has no food. deny them the resources because you want to punish the parents. I understand, your website, your name, is there to make money to feed your mouth. make your money.
