Nadya Suleman, otherwise known as "Octomom," will not face criminal charges from a child neglect probe by La Habra police, Orange County prosecutors announced Friday.

Suleman, who became famous in 2009 after giving birth to octuplets, had been accused by one of her caregivers of neglect in a September complaint.

Prosecutors did not describe the nature of the allegations against Suleman but said a review of the La Habra investigation determined there was insufficient evidence of any crime.

Suleman had lived in La Habra with her 14 children but has since relocated to the Palmdale area.

She strongly denied any of her children were neglected or abused and blamed the accusations on women she claims had become obsessed with her children.
