Nadya “Octo-Mom” Suleman‘s house in La Habra which had been scheduled to be auctioned off Monday because the controversial mother of 14 stopped making payments more than a year ago, has been postponed until May 7, after Octo filed for bankruptcy, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
As previously reported, Octo-Mom found herself at the center of a firestorm last Wednesday as photos surfaced of her house, showing the squalid living conditions she subjects her children to. A cleaning crew arrived to the house late Wednesday to scrub the graffiti-riddled, filthy house from top to bottom.
Amir Haddadin, the man who loaned Suleman more than $450k to buy the house, was told by Indy-Mac bank Monday morning that the auction had been postponed. “The bank told me that the auction had been postponed until May 7 and I told them that Nadya had filed for bankruptcy, which I think they already knew,” Haddadin tells RadarOnline.com exclusively. “They didn’t tell me why the auction had been postponed. This is not surprising that Nadya has filed for bankruptcy and now the bank will have to deal with it.”
However, Amir’s real concern is Nadya’s children and their well-being. “I feel so sorry for those children and I worry about them. What kind of life are they living now? Going to the bathroom in the backyard of the house in portable toilets — they aren’t animals. Does Nadya realize that? Truly, what kind of life can these children have with her as a mother?” Amir asks.
The 36-year-old single mother’s home, which has been in constant financial trouble since she moved in, has one bedroom with the words “do not enter” spray painted on the door and there is a visible dent where a chair has been propped to keep the door closed. Suleman said she receives about 5k a month in public assistance but is expecting that to end very soon.
The Orange County Children and Family Services department was called by Octo-Mom’s hairstylist, but they inspected the home and determined the children were not in any immediate danger.
