Nadya Suleman, a.k.a. the “Octomom,” mother to 14 children and budding porn star/stripper, has checked into rehab for a prescription drug problem, TMZ reports. She’ll be there for 30 days and has left her enormous brood with several caretakers.
A rep for Suleman says she admitted herself to the Chapman House Drug Rehabilitation Center, which has four different facilities in and around the Los Angeles area. Suleman is seeking help for her dependency on Xanax, an anti-anxiety drug.
“Nadya wanted to get off the Xanax she was prescribed by her doctor and learn to deal with her stress, exhaustion and anxiety with professional help with a team of doctors. Nadya wanted to deal with her issues and make sure she is the best mother she can be,” says her rep.
Octomom is reportedly leaving her children with three nannies and two friends. There is also a driver to take them to and from school (though wouldn’t that qualify as a school bus?)
The rehab facility has reportedly offered to pay for her treatment.
