Octuplets mother Nadya Suleman, children could be evicted from La Habra home

March 19, 2010 |  7:36 am

It's been fairly quiet at the La Habra home of octuplets mother Nadya Suleman.

But this week, the TV trucks and reporters have returned because of concerns that Suleman and her 14 children might be evicted.

Amer Haddadin said the Suleman family has fallen behind in their house payments. 

He said Suleman's father purchased the home under a deal in which Haddadin would carry the $450,000 loan for a year until the family could gather enough money to provide a substantial down payment.

A year later, he says, Suleman's father has not provided the money.

"What they are doing is not right, and I am going to take them to court," he told KABC-TV Channel 7. "They are not cooperating with me."

Haddadin said he feels betrayed. He said he stepped up to help Suleman when she needed a home after returning home from the hospital last year.

"I was the kids' savior," he told KABC.

Suleman nor her father could be reached for comment. But her spokesman released a statement to the media Thursday saying that the financial dispute was between Haddadin and her father. "She may be the victim in all this," he said in the statement.
