Some say that Octomom (nee Nadya Suleman) has exhibited bizarre behavior since she before she hit the media (after all, 14 children and octuplets, all via IVF isn't what many would call normal). Now, though, and since obtaining a medical marijuana card, it appears Suleman has fallen off the wagon, and her friends and relatives expressed concern on Friday.
While not related to her current behavior, the embedded video below shows the type -- to be clear, this is an older video -- of behavior that her friends are worried about. The video, taken last year in a hotel room with her former manager, shows Suleman wearing a onesie, cackling hysterically while cradling a drink. The video, it was said, was taken while Suleman was in deep with substance abuse issues, and before she went to rehab.
Some of her friends have said that Suleman is acting in the same manner again. They are afraid that she is becoming incapable of caring for her brood, a large one at that.
As we reported earlier, Octomom has a medical marijuana card that she obtained after her rehab, which was reportedly Xanax dependency. The xanax had been described for anxiety. The medical marijuana, apparently, is being used for the same reason.
Nadya Suleman was visited by the Los Angeles Department of Child and Family Services (DCFS) at her home during the weekend of Feb. 16. The were investigating a report by a former nanny that alleged that the mother of 14 had been using drugs, drinking heavily, blacking out, forgetting key events, leaving the children unbathed for days, and not changing their clothes for weeks.
Nadya Suleman became famous when she gave birth to octuplets in 2009, but became infamous when it was revealed that she already had six children from earlier IVF implantations, was unemployed, and on public assistance programs.
She earned the name "Octomom" from those octuplets.
