Octuplets' mom Nadya Suleman on food stamps, three older kids receive disability assitance
How about the deprivation her 14 kids are gonna feel, growing up on food stamps and disability assistance?
It turns out that Nadya (surprise!) receives $490 a month in food stamps. To make matters even worse, three of her older six kids are disabled and receive federal assistance, her publicist confirmed Monday night.
Suleman's spokesman Michael Furtney said Suleman doesn't want to disclose the nature of the disabilities or the kind or amount of her payments.
Furtney confirmed the aid after the The Times reported that Suleman was receiving food stamps and federal supplemental security income.
"In her view these are just payments made for people with legitimate needs and are not, in her view, welfare," Furtney said. "She just believes that there are programs for people with needs, and she and her children qualify for some of them."
Oh, I'll just bet she does.
Ironically, in her recent "Today Show" interview, Suleman told anchor Ann Curry that she doesn't receive welfare. Maybe she forgot? She has been pretty busy lately.
Suleman was implanted with the embryos of 14 of her children at West Coast IVF Clinic in Beverly Hills. The clinic is directed by Dr. Michael Kamrava.
