Octomom: On Welfare Again

January 07, 2013 08:08 AM by Megan Wilson

Just as the fiscal cliff deal was signed, there’s trouble looming for America’s taxpayers.  Octomom has joined the ranks again as a welfare recipient.  We were hoping she’d stay out of the headlines after her stripping gigs, solo porn job, rehab, and releasing a Christmas CD with her kids, but here she is again.  Why is she on welfare again?  Keep reading to find out!

Octomom, who gained notoriety after delivering 8 children, for a total of 14 kids, has fallen on hard times recently.  After Hollywood chewed her up and spit her out, Nadya decided the only way to support her family was to take off her clothes.  She took up stripping, and landed at the Playhouse South, a strip club in Florida, where she was paid $5,000 to dance the night away sans clothing.  A rival strip club served her with papers that night since she was supposed to be performing there, and since settling, she’s had trouble finding gigs.

Once the money ran out from swinging the pole, Octomom starred in a solo adult film that was mistaken for a comedy by many viewers.  It was viewed as a lame cash grab, which may have done the film company good, but not Nadya.  Shortly after her film debut, she checked into rehab.  While the rehab facility offered to foot the bill for Nadya’s stay, she opted to pay for it herself.  And now she’s on welfare again.  She’s going to receive $1,800 dollars a month for food, $1,000 dollars for emergency cash, as well as Medi-Cal benefits, every month.

It seems that Octomom may have problems managing her money.  I mean, if a rehab facility offers to pay for your care, and you refuse, only to go on welfare, you definitely have some financial issues.  She supposedly went off of welfare back in March, but signed up again last week. That $1,000 a month cash isn’t going to go far when paying the rent in her huge new rental home.  I smell trouble brewing.  Either Nadya is going to go back to the adult film industry or stripping, or will be filing bankruptcy soon.
