Nadya Suleman is back on welfare, according to TMZ, who learned the infamous Octomom is on government assistance again despite releasing a porn video last year.

TMZ reported that sources close to Octomom revealed that she signed up for welfare again after her rehabilitation bills from October began to pile up. The source said the 37-year-old used most of her savings to pay for her rehab stint for prescription drug addiction.

Suleman, who is the mother to 14 children, will get $1,800 per month for food and $1,000 for emergency cash and Medi-Cal benefits for mental, health and dental insurance.

TMZ reported Octomom plans to use the welfare money to get “back on her feet.”

Octomom previously went on welfare last March and has only been off government assistance for five months. She reportedly ended her welfare in July after earning money through stripping at a Florida gentleman’s club and her porn video release, “Octomom: Home Alone,” through Wicked Pictures in June.

"I'd be lying if I didn't say generating revenue wasn't a major reason why I did it, but I found the experience was empowering and liberating," Suleman told the Huffington Post in June.

In October, Octomom went to rehab at Chapman House Treatment Center in Orange, Calif., for drug use. Suleman was reportedly addicted to prescription drug Xanax and enrolled in a 28-day program for "anxiety, exhaustion and stress."

"She was prescribed Xanax for her anxiety attacks. She was not addicted to it. She has an overabundance of stress and exhaustion and wanted to deal with it without prescription drugs," her manager, Gina Rodriguez, told the New York Daily in October.

She went to rehab the same month she purchased an expensive new home in the Mojave Desert.

Suleman previously filed for bankruptcy last May for up to $1 million and was accused of neglecting her 14 children.
