Nadya Suleman: Under Investigation By DCFS Over "Horrendous" Living Conditions

by at . Comments

Octomom Nadya Suleman is under investigation by the La Habra (Calif.) Police Department and the Orange County Department of Children and Family Services after her stylist filed a complaint about the abhorrent living conditions at her house.

Her hairstylist, Stephanie, called the cops on her Tuesday.

According to Steph, Nadya and her 14 kids live in squalor, using only one working toilet, appearing malnourished and generally unclean, getting locked in the bedroom while Octomom does stuff, and surrounded by filth at every turn.

When a police and three DCFS workers arrived yesterday, you can actually hear Octomom tell them, "Excuse the graffiti" in a video posted on TMZ.

The authorities stayed 90 minutes and left. They determined the kids were not in danger so they weren't removed, but the investigation continues.

Photos of the scene confirmed Stephanie's claims, as one pic shows two kids clearly defecating into a portable training toilet ... in the backyard.

Another picture shows Nadya Suleman with her hair having just been done, and having propped up a chair against the door to keep her offspring out.

Yet another pic shows the children's bedroom, with two cribs and a mattress. Stephanie said some of the 14 kids are forced to sleep on the floor.

Some of the kids are also shown in the backyard, barefoot, neglected, dirty and wearing no pants. Boys are wearing girls' clothes in some cases.

Stephanie said of blowing the whistle, "The kids are in desperate need of help, and I tried to help and she's not open to anyone helping her."

Octomom recently went on welfare to help feed her brood, a decision that was greeted with death threats and vandalism from angry neighbors.

With 14 mouths to feed and Octomom nude pics not commanding the cash they once would have, she's constantly swimming upstream.

Has the time come for the children to live elsewhere? Discuss.

@Faith, thank you! You are very sweet. I loved my childhood and wouldn't have it any other way!

Wow. I must admit I haven't been following this story. My first impression was initial concern because it seemed that she was just after attention and using her kids. I've never seen her in interviews. I hope that the situation gets resolved. Regardless-she is their mother and they love her. Having said that, they deserve to have uncondtional love. Fourteen is probably too much for anyone to handle and keep a clean house so that isn't terrible to me. But one bathroom for 14, 15 people is not good enough.

I am sorry I don't believe a thing until I see for myself and I don't mean a camera showing me it I have to be in the rooms for myself. There is to much photo shopping going on for me to believe anything on TV or a magazine because they will do anything for money.

Obviously, like most of the world, I was appalled by this womans story about having herself inseminated to have several children, without a father and or means to support herself and her children. In the end, these children are blessings! Shame on Nadya Suleman and horrendous treatment of her blessings! I for one am not going to read anymore about her! Please to all the Hollywood gossip mags stop showing pictures of her I believe this just adds to her selfish behavior, obviously that is why she did this to get more attention for herself!

I work full time and have 2 kids and couldn't afford to have a hair stylist come to my house. That lady did the right thing by turning that wacko in. @ Nancy... Ur a nut job and people like u always blame others. Your kid doesn't have a chance.

@ Bebe...that just proves that it can be done by sane, loving parents. My father came from a family of nine children. Obviously back in those days it was hard because Mom's always stayed home with the kids. But they were all loved and well taken care of. Lots of hand me downs, but there is nothing wrong with that. And I am sure growing up in a family with 9 siblings there are many many many happy memories for you. God Bless your parents for loving, caring, and sacrificing for their children.

DCFS should help her with better housing, specifically HUD so that they can make sure that everything in the home is in working order or appoint a special social worker to come to the house and make sure that all those children have everything that they need. It seems like the state of California is partial against this woman and her children; I bet if all of her children were white with blonde hair and blue eyes they would have them on a reality show. It is perfectly obvious that this woman has some serious problems; mental health needs to step in and help her and DCFS needs to assist those children, this woman is not mentally capable to care for all those children adequately without some type of special interventions.

Nancy, it isn't that everyone is 'beating up' on her. It is all just the truth! Honestly!! Can you honestly say from your heart that it's okay to let 14 children live in filth, go hungry, without clothing, AND be locked out of the house by their mother!?! To be the last thing she thinks about and putting herself BEFORE her children?? Really?!?! Go online and look up some of the past interviews she has given. The woman is psycho!! And the purpose for all of these comments is to have an intelligent conversation among other people about the subject at hand. That is why the very last word in the article says....'Discuss'. Meaning....talk about it. YOU shouldn't be taking it so personal. It has nothing to do with you or any of us. It is all about stating your opinion and discussing the facts. And the fact is....she is a horrible mother of 14 children that deserve better. Plain and simple.
