Octomom may be in big trouble.
According to TMZ, allegations were reportedly filed against Nadya Suleman for welfare fraud. The mother of 14 children has allegedly been receiving different kinds of welfare, like food stamps, even though her annual income was almost $200,000 last year.
The celebrity news site says the L.A. County Dept. of Welfare Fraud Prevention and Investigation will be conducting a probe to see whether or not the claim is legitimate. If it’s true, and depending on how much aid Octomom received, she could face up to three years in jail and up to a $5,000 fine, according to California law.
This is Suleman’s second time on welfare. According to ABC News, she weaned herself off the public assistance program last August. In January, she reportedly went back on welfare after spending most of her savings on rehab, nannies and drivers, Gina Rodriguez, Suleman’s spokeswoman, told ABC News.
Suleman, 37, became famous after she gave birth to octuplets in 2009 using in vitro fertilization. Earlier this year, she filed for bankruptcy, shot her first porn movie, checked into rehab and has been diagnosed with PTSD.
