Octomom Going on Welfare

by at . Comments

We don't cover a lot of stars who are flat broke here at THG, but most celebrities don't become celebrities by having 14 freaking kids and no freaking job.

Have you met Nadya Suleman?

Since giving birth to octuplets, Octomom has supported herself by selling access to her life, but apparently that isn't too lucrative: She's going on welfare.

While it doesn't make us feel good to criticize the less fortunate, it's hard not to blame Octomom's tough situation on the Angelina Jolie lookalike herself.

Broke as a Joke

We feel bad for Octomom's children. Just not Octomom.

"Nadya is running out of money very quickly," a source close to the infamous mom said. "She's still hoping to pull off a deal that will pay her a fortune."

"At this point it just doesn't seem possible."

Knock us over with a feather ...

Suleman was an infamous headline-generating national curiosity after giving birth to octuplets on January 29, 2009, and her struggle to raise 14 children has led to a level of fame. It's also resulted in a massive pile of bills, however.

Now that press attention is diminishing 18 months later, and TV networks aren't interested in a reality series featuring Suleman, welfare's her only option.

"She was hoping for merchandizing deals, but those never came through," a source close to her said. "And she's written a book but no publisher wants it."

Meanwhile, Suleman has fallen behind on her mortgage payments again In April, the man holding her mortgage threatened to evict when she fell behind.

That situation was resolved as title to the house Nadya lives in was transferred to a company owned by her lawyer, Jeff Czech. But her problems continue.

"Nadya has nannies and huge expenses raising 14 children," the source said. "She needs a lot of money just to keep up with the basics. And now the income has dried up and she didn't make enough in the past year and a half to live off of it."

"That money is gone and now she's facing desperate times."
