When news broke out of Nadya Suleman entering rehab, it was widely assumed that the famous mom of 14 was seeking treatment for an addiction to Xanax. But is Octomom really in rehab for addiction treatment? Or is there something else at play?
News of Octomom’s alleged addiction didn’t surprise us one bit. What with porn stints and spacey interviews, the famous mother has seemed a little off for, well, a long time. But according to one source, this erratic behavior stems not from an addiction, but from a severe psychological disorder. The source told Radar Online, “Nadya doesn’t fit the stereotype of someone suffering from substance abuse addiction because she doesn’t have a family history of it and she has never had any issues with prescription drugs, alcohol or street drugs.”
So, what exactly is this insider’s theory? And why would Nadya enter a drug rehab program if she wasn’t suffering from an addiction? “Nadya absolutely does have major psychological issues though that have been untreated for years and she should be getting help for those very complicated problems…This trip to rehab is probably just another ploy for Nadya to get publicity and money from media outlets that pay her for pictures and stories.”
Despite the source’s allegations, signs point to drug and alcohol issues in Octomom’s past. In August, Octomom’s dad expressed concerns about his daughter’s drinking habits, worrying that she was unfit for driving, much less taking care of 14 children. Not to mention, it’s impossible for us to know just how accurate this insider’s claims are.
Do you think Octomom actually has a drug addiction? Or does it matter, as long as she’s seeking treatment for her problems and leaving her kids in good hands? Share your opinion in the comments section below!
