Dr. Drew Reacts To Octo-Mom's Claims That Fertility Doctor Drugged Her
By Jen Heger - RadarOnline.com Legal Editor
Dr. Drew Pinsky is reacting to Nadya "Octo-Mom" Suleman's claims that her fertility doctor drugged her before implanting her with 12 embryos.
Suleman made the stunning revelation on Dr. Drew's HLN show and following the interview Drew is speaking out in defense of the controversial mom.
Suleman claims she was under the influence of "valium and a cocktail of drugs" given to her by her former fertility doctor, Michael Kamrava, and "not lucid" when she signed a consent form for 12 embryos to be implanted in her, leading to the birth of her eight kids in January 2009.
The 36-year-old mother-of-14 claims Kamrava "wrote something and he gave it to me to sign" inside his Beverly Hills office before the procedure was completed.
Dr. Drew told RadarOnline.com: "I figured there was some explanation. As usual the cartoon figure in the media spotlight is always different than the human being. And I think it is important for people to remember that. It is easier to sit in judgment and disdain of a someone who isn't real to us."
Dr. Kamrava's medical license has been suspended by the California State Medical Board for his treatment of Suleman.
