Frustration builds as auction of 'Octomom's' house delayed again

Amer Haddadin, above, waited patiently on the steps of Orange City Hall but left frustrated after the auction of Nadya Suleman’s house was again delayed.

The auction of “Octomom” Nadya Suleman’s home was postponed for the second day in a row Thursday, an announcement that came as anxious buyers waited on the steps of City Hall in Orange for an opportunity to buy the house.

Suleman, who gained notoriety after having octuplets -– bringing the number of children she’s raising to 14, is now 11 months behind on her house payments and has conceded publicly that she’s facing severe financial problems.

Among those who showed up for the scheduled auction was Amer Haddadin, who holds the note on the four-bedroom, three-bath house in La Habra and says the whole process has ruined his credit and left him frustrated.

When it was announced that the auction had been postponed until June 6, Haddadin just shook his head and walked away.

Suleman filed for bankruptcy last month, but the court tossed out her filing, saying she had failed to complete the necessary paperwork.

The bankruptcy filing had briefly put a freeze on the auction of Suleman's house, which is expected to sell in the $400,000 range.

Suleman is on welfare and receiving $2,000 a month in food stamps.

Haddadin said Suleman is supposed to pay him $3,000 a month.
