Octomom spends hundreds on her hair, locks kids in bedroom

Nadya "Octomom" Suleman.

America’s most hated mother of octuplets is giving her critics even more fodder since spending hundreds of dollars on her own hair while she collects food stamps and welfare benefits.

Nadya Suleman said she received death threats after filing for welfare from the state of California. She claimed $2,000 worth of food stamps per month was simply not enough to support her and her 14 children. How, then, can Suleman afford $520 in hair services?

TMZ has posted a photo of a check the Octomom signed over to her hair stylist as payment for two haircuts and a Brazilian blowout. The stylist, Stephanie, said Octomom’s kids were living in such “squalor” that she went to the police and filed a report.

Octomom’s continually questionable priorities are once again at the center of attention — Stephanie said the plumbing was broken at Octomom’s home and her kids were using portable toilets in the backyard — this after Octomom deemed the $150 needed to fix the pipes too expensive.

Additionally — and if this is true it’s decidedly the worst part of this story, Stephanie said that while she was there, Octomom kept her kids locked in a bedroom, lodging a char against the knob to keep the door closed. She snapped a pic, which TMZ posted.
