According to Gossip Cop on Jan. 6, "Octomom" Nadya Suleman has gone back on welfare six months after getting off of it, and the reason is because she is now in financial need after entering a drug rehabilitation program.
Suleman was originally on welfare due to her struggles supporting her 14 children. Four months after going on welfare earlier in 2012, she was able to get off financial support thanks to money she made appearing in a porn and stripping to help pay her bills.
Suleman decided the best way to make money to support her large family was to appear topless in a magazine and then appear in a solo porn video. One month later, she made more money by stripping at the Playhouse Gentleman's Club in Florida.
Unfortunately, Suleman had other problems other than just feeding her 14 kids. The Octomom was also addicted to Xanax, an anti-anxiety drug. She checked into the Chapman House Drug Rehabilitation Center in California for rehab last October, leaving her kids in the care of three different nannies.
The money this rehabilitation stint cost the Octomom has now put her back on welfare, where she said she will only remain until she gets back on her feet again. Looks like another porn video might be coming.
