Octomom's bankruptcy claim thrown out

2012-05-16 07:48
 
California - A judge threw out "Octomom" Nadya Suleman's bankruptcy claim on Tuesday after she failed to file the proper paperwork to show she can't pay as much as $1m in debt.

That means creditors can move to collect what they say they're owed, and a pending foreclosure can go ahead against the La Habra, California, house Suleman lives in with her 14 children, according to The Orange County Register.

Suleman's case was thrown out because she didn't file a dozen financial documents and statements required to prove bankruptcy. In her initial filing from 30 April, Suleman estimated that she owed as much as $1m that she is unable to repay.

Sought protection

Suleman had sought protection from her debts under Chapter 7 bankruptcy, which means a court-appointed trustee would have liquidated her assets to pay off creditors before she is discharged from most of her debts.

According to the filing, she owed money to more than 20 parties, including utility companies, her father and a Christian school.

A representative for Suleman did not immediately provide comment.

Fame, not fortune

Suleman is an unemployed single mother who became famous after giving birth to octuplets in 2009. Her octuplets are the world's longest living set.

All of Suleman's children were conceived through in vitro fertility treatments.

Suleman has sold photos of herself and her children to tabloids, including a spread of topless photos to a British magazine.

She has also agreed to answer pay-per-minute phone calls along with other D-list celebrities and reality television personalities.
