Nadya Suleman, best known worldwide as the “Octomom,” is under investigation by the Orange County Department of Family and Children’s services following a complaint filed by her hair stylist stating that the mother of 14 allows her children to live in horrendous living conditions.
According to TMZ, a California police officer and 3 DFCS workers showed up at Octomom’s house Tuesday (Apr 24) in response to the child neglect claims from her hairdresser Stephanie, who says that the family of 15 are living in squalor.
Stephanie told the police that the plumbing in the home is a disaster, and there is only one working toilet in the entire house.
She also said that the house was totally filthy, and the kids are dirty and appear malnourished, and they use the bathroom via portable training toilets in their bedrooms and outside in the backyard.
Among other things, Stephanie also told police that she actually witnessed Octomom locking her kids in a bedroom while she tended to personal matters.
In a video posted to TMZ that shows the cop and the 3 DFCS workers arriving at the home and walking inside, you can actually hear Octomom say “Excuse the graffiti.”
The authorities reportedly stayed at the house for an hour-and-a-half before they left.
They determined the kids weren’t in danger, so they weren’t removed from the home, but the investigation will continue and there will definitely be a follow-up with Children’s Services.
