Disturbing pictures of Octomom's California home have merged after police and social services visited the property yesterday to investigate claims of neglect.
The images show the property in a dishevelled and filthy state with graffiti scrawled across the walls.
Social workers are investigating Nadya Suleman over claims the single mother's 14 children are living in squalor. Authorities were tipped off about the living conditions at her home in La Habra, California, by her hairdresser.
A team from California social services inspected the 36-year-old's home after being told there was only one working toilet. The children are also said to be malnourished and unclean.
It is said some of the children are using portable training toilets located in their bedrooms and in the backyard, and that her brood appear malnourished and unbathed.
The stylist, called Stephanie, claims to have observed her locking her kids in a bedroom while she tended to personal matters.
''The kids are in desperate need of help, and I tried to help and she's not open to anyone helping her,'' said Stephanie.
Suleman is said to have refused to pay a plumber $150 to get pipes in the house fixed but found money to pay her hairstylist $520 on two cuts and chemical straightening, according to gossip website TMZ.
When an officer and three children's services workers arrived and went inside, the reality television personality was heard saying, ''Excuse the graffiti.''
Authorities stayed at Suleman's home for an hour-and-a-half, and determined the kids were not in danger but they will now be monitored by officials with the California Children's Services Department.
Suleman has admitted struggling to cope with her giant brood and has financial problems.
She recently signed on to get $2000 a month in food stamps and has faced having her home re-possessed for nonpayment of mortgage.
Suleman became known worldwide three years ago when she gave birth to eight babies. She already had six children but underwent fertility treatment and defied doctors advice to keep the eight babies.
