Having overstayed her welcome both in her California home and her 15 minutes of low-grade celebrity fame, “Octomom” Nadya Suleman has filed for bankruptcy.
In court papers, Suleman said she owes money to Sylvan Learning Center, childcare center Lad N. Lassie and private elementary school Whittier Christian School—debts that combine with others to amount to between $500,000 and $1 million.
Her net worth? Less than $50,000, according to court papers.
Suleman, 36, didn’t detail her financial hardship in the first documents that were filed in her Chapter 7 case—the type of bankruptcy where you generally sell off whatever assets you can to pay your debts.
The filing comes the week she could have gotten the boot from her landlord who, according to media reports, is losing the La Habra, Calif., home where Suleman and her 14 kids are staying to foreclosure. The owner has told local newspapers that Suleman hasn’t made rent payments for nearly a year.
It’s unclear whether Suleman’s bankruptcy could prevent an eviction for her and her children, including the 3-year-old octuplets.
Suleman said she also owes unspecified amounts to IndyMac Mortgage Services and to her gardener, Roberto Robles, according to documents filed in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Santa Ana, Calif.
