In sad, but not entirely surprising news, Octomom Nadya Suleman is doing what she swore she would never do and going on welfare, reports say.
The mother of 14 is getting $2,000 a month from the State of California, which sends it directly to a special debit account (see welfare card image).
The card can ONLY be used for food and is closely monitored to ensure its holder isn't making illegal purchases ... i.e. toys, pregnancy tests, etc.
Just two years ago, after giving birth to children 7-14, she said she refused to become "a self-fulfilling prophecy" by accepting state assistance.
She also said we'd never see Nadya Suleman nude. It's a week of firsts.
Octo got for the card because her income is less than $119,000 a year and a family of 15 that makes less than that is entitled to welfare benefits.
The $119,000 figure is based on around $8,000 for each member of the household. The more kids, the more you can make and still receive welfare.
