Octuplets' mother: 'We're not losing our house'

March 23, 2010 | 11:31 am

On the day Nayda Suleman was supposed to face possible eviction from her La Habra home, the octuplets' mother broke her silence and said she's going to remain at the home.

Last week, the home's owner, Amer Haddadin, said the Suleman family has fallen behind in their house payments and that Suleman could face eviction if the matter is not taken care of.

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.

Suleman, in a video interview broadcast on TMZ, said the entire matter has been exaggerated and that the family is staying in the home.

"We're not losing our house," she said in the interview, adding the payments have been made on time.
