Nadya Suleman received $165,000 in disability payments over six years …
…. but didn’t pay a penny of it to her parents, who have been caring for her children. Her Mother was driven into bankruptcy last year, citing a bad house investment in her bankruptcy filing …
…and citing in her interview with Radaronline the cost of caring for Nadya’s earlier six children.
“The truth is that Nadya hasn’t worked since she started having her children,” Angela, charged, “while Ed and I battled to pay her bills.
“Nadya promised to help me with the bills, but she never has. I lost a house because of it and now I’m struggling to look after her six. We had to put in bunk beds, feed them in shifts and there’s children’s clothing piled all over the house.”
“How she’s going to cope, I don’t know,” said Mrs Suleman. “I’m really tired of taking care of the six children and need her to think about how she’ll provide for all these children.”
Meanwhile, back at the publicity agent …
Nadya Suleman’s publicist Mike Furtney said that his client has been away for nearly two months, so shouldn’t be held responsible for the home’s current condition.
Not a helpful argument for his client’s ability to care for her children. Nor is the fact that she is hiding from the media in an undisclosed location
Furtney said his client planned to move into a larger home once the octuplets were healthy enough to leave doctors’ care.
With what money and help, now that Ms. Suleman has worn out her Mother and Father? Enter Corporate Sponsorship?
Meanwhile, Ms. Suleman is going ahead with the “Miracle Baby” photo spreads and television interviews (e.g. the Today Show). No links needed – just go to the “Entertainment” (Entertainment!) section of Google and you’ll find over 5,000 articles – 5,134 this morning at 10:41 am.
Ms. Suleman so clearly wants to be a celebrity.
