"Octomom" Nadya Suleman filed for bankruptcy Monday, saying in a court filing that she has as much as $1 million in debt. Suleman wants a fresh start and said in a statement that filing for bankruptcy is what's best for her children, according to the Orange County Register.
The photo was undeniably cute: a studio portrait of eight babies in identical onesies and perky white cotton hats, sporting an array of expressions from giggly to goofy, baffled to bawling. Intended as an advertisement for the studio, the photo grabbed a different kind of attention: In a country that limits most couples to one child, many Chinese were amazed to learn that a couple had spent nearly a million yuan ($160,000) and illegally enlisted two surrogate mothers to help have the four boys and four girls.
Nadya Suleman's father, Ed Doud, has defaulted on a $450,000 balloon payment on that house, mortgage holder Amer Haddadin said Wednesday. He told The Associated Press he plans to file foreclosure papers in court within days if he doesn't get his money. Meanwhile, she's been offered a role in a Vivid adult film and has accepted a $5,000 offer to put a sign in her yard proclaiming, "Don't Let Your Dog or Cat Become an Octomom. Always Spay or Neuter."
