Octomom Nadya Suleman, who is receiving $2,000 a month in welfare benefits from the state of California, has received a flood of emails, threatening phone calls, and irate Facebook messages as Americans are not happy their tax dollars are going toward supporting her and her 14 children.
According to TMZ, among the nasty messages was “Die bi***. I’m not working for your f**king kids, you’re the one that wanted them.”
The 36-year-old, who famously gave birth to octuplets in 2009, previously swore she would never go on the dole.
Now that she has fallen on hard times, the mother-of-14 qualifies for help because her total income is less than $ 8,000 per member of her household.
Suleman recently posed topless in a British magazine but was only paid $ 8,000, money that quickly vanished as she tried to pay the bills, she said.
“I have to do what I have to do to take care of my family, and I’m not ashamed,” the Daily Mail quoted her as telling CNN.
Each US state provides benefits to parents who can not afford to support their children and the more children you have, the more government support.
Octomom, who cannot hold down a steady job because she has to care for her 14 children full-time, qualified.
However, Nadya’s special government issued debit card is closely monitored to make sure she only uses the funds for food.
The desperate mother-of-14 had to pull all but one of her children out of the 4,000 dollars-a-month private school they were attending. Nadya is keeping her autistic son in the expensive school.
