Nadya Suleman, the California mother caught in a media frenzy after giving birth to octuplets, reportedly is looking to buy a home listed for more than a million dollars — news that follows on the heels of reports that her current home is facing foreclosure.
The latest report comes from TMZ, which cited an unnamed source at Century 21 as saying Suleman has shown interest in buying a $1.24 million home in Whittier, Calif. The house has four bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms and a pool.
Property records show the house where Suleman lives is under the threat of foreclosure.
Los Angeles County property records show a notice of mortgage default was recorded Feb. 9 against the Whittier home owned by Angela Suleman, the mother of Nadya Suleman.
Nadya Suleman has lived in the home with the six children she already had before giving birth to the octuplets.
The default notice shows Angela Suleman is $23,225 behind in her mortgage payments, and the three-bedroom house could be sold at auction beginning May 5.
Angela Suleman's phone has been disconnected and she could not be immediately reached for comment.
Nadya Suleman, 33, jobless and receiving food stamps, has drawn international headlines and a torrent of public ridicule since giving birth on Jan. 26 to octuplets. The babies were conceived through in vitro fertilization.
That criticism intensified when it was learned she already had six children, ages 2 to 7, that she was collecting disability checks for three of them and that they all were living with the grandmother.
