La Habra home of 'Octomom' Nadya Suleman could go up for auction

Octomom Nadya Suleman
The La Habra home of "Octomom" Nadya Suleman is scheduled to go up for auction Monday, KTLA-TV reports.

Suleman and her 14 children could face eviction if the house is sold, which would compound her problems after recent allegations she had been neglecting her children, while spending hundreds of dollars on herself for services like Brazilian blowouts.

Officers from the La Habra Police Department accompanied social workers to Suleman's home last Tuesday after receiving a complaint, which said there was only one working toilet in the house, and the children were forced to use portable training toilets in their bedrooms.

The complaint also said the children appeared to be malnourished and unclean, and Suleman locked them in their rooms while she attended to personal matters.

The social workers spent about two hours at the house and determined the children were not in danger and should not be removed from the home. The Orange County Department of Family and Children's Services continues to investigate.

Suleman appeared on "The Today Show" on April 5 and told host Matt Lauer she is still a good mom despite her financial difficulties. Suleman is receiving $2,000 a month in food stamps.

When Lauer questioned whether her deteriorating financial condition would force child services to break up her family, Suleman responded, "That will never happen. I can guarantee you of that."

Suleman gained worldwide attention in 2009 when she gave birth to octuplets and was instantly known as "Octomom."
