‘Octomom’ visited by child welfare officials after complaints
LA HABRA, Calif. (AP) — Police and California child welfare officials who visited Nadya Suleman's home after someone claimed that her 14 children were living in squalor say they did not find evidence that the children are in any danger.
La Habra police Sgt. Daniel Barnes says officers and Orange County Department of Family and Children's Services officials examined Suleman's home in Southern California on Tuesday and did not find anything unusual.
The entertainment news website TMZ.com says Suleman's hairstylist told police the house was a mess and there was only one working toilet in the home.
Barnes told City News Service that someone reported filth in the home.
The 36-year-old Suleman became known as Octomom after she gave birth to eight babies in January 2009. They are the world's longest-living octuplets.
