We Saw This Coming: Octomom Might Go To Jail, Is Being Investigated For Welfare Fraud

By  | 

ursulaI feel like no one should be surprised by the idea that Octomom might end up in jail for welfare fraud. We’ve all be in agreement for years that Nadya Suleman is more than a little sketchy. There have been numerous claims of abuse and neglect for the woman’s 14 kids. It wasn’t really a question of ‘if’ her children were going to be taken away from her, just when and how. And now, we might have an answer.

According to the super sneaky sources over at TMZ, who seem to be constantly involved in all things Octomom, Nadya Suleman is now being investigated for welfare fraud. She’s currently receiving various forms of government support, like food stamps, for herself and her 14 children. According to California state limits, Suleman would have to make less than $119,000 a year to receive support. (That might seem high, but we’re talking about a family of 15 here.) Reports says that Suleman made more $200,000 in the last year through endeavors like pornography and stripping.

Of course, don’t go assuming that the world’s most controversial IVF patient can be counted out. She’s come back from worrisome legal issues and claims before. The mom hasn’t been prosecuted yet.

At the same time, her dubious financial dealings might be easier to prove than any of the random neglect claims thrown Octomom’s way. Maybe she’ll finally find herself being forced to take responsibility.

At this point, it simply feels redundant to mention how dramatic and stressful life must be for those 14 children who have to depend on this woman for their care. Hopefully they’ll be alright through the latest legal issues to face their mother.

    What happens if she goes to prison? How can they find someone to take them on? Of course, I feel that she isn’t a very good parent anyway, so maybe they’d be better off.

      I would assume that the children would have to be split up between different foster homes. And yea, it’s always hard to tell which is worse, splitting up the kids or keeping them with an irresponsible parent.

      I say the irresponsible parent is way way WAY worse!!! Yeah it would suck to split them, but it should have been done already. This woman has shown time and time again that the only thing she cares about is fame whoring. She does not give a flying duck about those kids. They would TOTALLY be better off in loving homes even if they were split up.

      Well then, the earlier, the better, I say. Less time for her to mess them all up. Does she even have any responsible family members?

      I think with all the publicity involved, some well off or well meaning people will take them all in if that happens.

      I hope so. Those poor babies. That woman is very messed up.

      I’m almost certain that will happen. The only thing I’d worry about is the older sibs being separated from the main litter.

      And you’re right, Octomom is super messed up. She seriously, seriously makes me question my view that reproduction is a basic human right, and I hate her for making me feel like an elitist asshole.
