"Octomom" Files for Bankruptcy
(LOS ANGELES) -- The "Octomom's" difficult April ended on Monday with her filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in federal court, according to E! Online. But TMZ reports she is trying to turn her financial ship around -- by signing a deal to star in a movie for a porn company.
According to court documents, Nadya Suleman says she has less than $50,000 in assets and owes between $500,000 and $1 million to creditors including Amir Haddadin, the owner of her home; Orkin Pest Control; Kaiser Permanete; Verizon Wireless; Sylvan Learning Center; and others.
Earlier this year, Suleman -- who has 14 children, including octuplets born in 2009 -- revealed that she was accepting $2,000 per month in food stamps from the state of California.
Suleman's van was vandalized and she received a death threat during an incident at her California home on April 7. Last week, she was the subject of a child services investigation after her former hairdresser went public with photos that reportedly depicted her home as being filthy. Police subsequently determined that there was nothing unusual going on at the home and that Suleman's kids were safe.
Suleman is apparently now willing to cross a line she previously said she wouldn't: star in a porn movie, TMZ reported Tuesday morning. The gossip site says she's signed on to appear in a video for a company that was willing to pay, "a lot more than the $10,000 she made for [recently] posing topless." The film will be shot soon, and released by the summer.
Suleman had previously turned down a million dollar offer from porn giant Vivid to headline a movie for the company.
