Police look into Octomom child neglect allegations

LA HABRA, Calif. (AP) — Police say they’ve investigated allegations of child neglect at the Southern California home of the woman known as Octomom, Nadya Suleman (NAH’-dee-uh SOO’-luh-mahn), and her 14 children.

La Habra police said Friday the allegations were learned of last month from a caregiver.

Suleman’s publicist, Gina Rodriguez, says the claims are not true and come from a woman who became obsessed with the children.


Police say many of the allegations were also previously investigated by authorities and social service agencies. They say they have presented their latest findings to the Orange County District Attorney’s office to determine whether criminal conduct occurred.

Police declined to release additional details about the allegations involving the home of the woman who gave birth to octuplets in 2009.

A message left with the district attorney’s office was not immediately returned.
