House where octuplets' mom lives is in danger of foreclosure

Suleman The Whittier house where Nadya Suleman, the mother of octuplets, and her six other children have been living with her parents is in pre-foreclosure, according to records.

The three-bedroom, two-bath house is owned by Angela Suleman, the children's grandmother. A default notice was filed Feb. 9 for a loan that is $23,224 past due. The notice lists a projected sale date of June 9, according to the website foreclosureradar.com.

She bought the house in March 2006 for $605,000 with a loan from Indymac Bank for $453,750.

Angela Suleman could not be reached for comment Wednesday. In an interview last month, she said that she had filed for bankruptcy and lost one house to foreclosure, but said her finances had improved and she had paid her debts.

In an interview with Us magazine, Nadya Suleman acknowledged that the house "is too small" for her 14 children. "We're going to have to move," she said.

It's unclear, though, how she plans to support the growing family. Three of her children receive federal supplemental security income because of disabilities and Nadya Suleman acknowledges receiving $490 a month in food stamps. Her temporary disability income has also stopped; however, she is eligible for permanent disability payments that have yet to be determined, according to workers' compensation records.

The March 2 issue of Us magazine cites sources indicating that Nadya Suleman has received $100,000 from American tabloids for photos and $227,000 from British tabloids. Angela Suleman reportedly received $40,000 from RadarOnline, the Web-only edition of the celebrity magazine that folded last fall.
