The revelation comes after the Los Angeles County District Attorney announced today that Octomom was being charged with welfare fraud. The porn star is set to be arraigned on Friday.
Prosecutors tell that in the first six months of 2013, our collective hero applied and received over $16,000 in welfare payments, in addition to $6,667 from the CalWorks financial assistance program and $9,814 from Cal Fresh food aid program.
Funds and government assistance that the single mother of 14 is believed to have sought in the managing of her large brood, albeit at the tax payer’s expense.
She was charged on January 6 with one count aid by misrepresentation and two counts perjury by false application for aid.
If convicted, Suleman faces up to five years and eight months in custody.
On Friday, prosecutors are expected to ask for bail to be set at $25,000.
The latest snafu comes after our collective hero was threatened with eviction last month.
Suleman had been living rent-free in a friend’s home but it was sold and the new owner told her she and her brood had to go.
New owner Lana El-Jor said she had problems refinancing the building because of her.
Told El-Jor: ‘That’s one of the things why we have to ask her to leave. The bank refused to support the loan. She is said to have left her houses abused and everything and it worried the bank.’
It’s uncertain whether El-Jor followed through on the threats to kick the family out by Christmas.
Octomom’s octuplet birth caused controversy in 2009 when it was revealed she was on federal assistance when she was impregnanted by invitro fertilization by Dr Michael Kamrava.
Dr Kamrava had his medical license revoked after the birth for not exercising ‘sound judgement.’
Over the years, Suleman has gotten creative trying to provide for her children.
From starring in porn movies, participating in online dating auctions and performing as a stripper.
The beleagured mother has vowed never to do porn again.
In her online diary she said: ‘I choose not to give my body sexually to ANYONE. Not even myself. I won’t give what I can control away… I am not for sale.
‘I’m to blame. I deserve to be punished. Punish me. Hurt me. Destroy me. As I am now done.
‘I focused 100% attention on my family, went back on welfare (I know), and never stripped again. Soon…you will be reading these words. And as soon as you are…we will be off welfare forever.’
Nadya won AVN Award for her solo porn tape and has stripped – all to raise funds for her family – but the diary writings reveals the extent of her pain at doing so.
Until then the world waits with bated breath at what comeuppance if any that might be exacted on Octomom who has chosen to cut corners. A temptation that many many undergo on a daily basis.
Then again perhaps Octomom had come to the belief that she was unbeatable and a tabloid hero that was only deserving of her due…
