Mother of 14, Nadya Suleman — aka “Octomom” — is denying allegations of child abuse and neglect made by two nannies who previously worked with her family.
The unidentified women tell CBS2 in Los Angeles that Suleman tied her newborns to their beds, blocked their door with a chair, allowed her older children to physically abuse the younger ones, and did nothing when one of the nannies informed her that one of the boys was sexually abusing his sister.
“This is a woman who became obsessed with the children and contacted [Suleman’s representatives] to help her write a book,” a rep for Octomom tells E! News. “Her and the other woman claiming to be a nanny are also good friends with each other and are trying to make money. This is why Nadya chose to move far away.”
The rep adds that one of the accusers “became enraged when Nadya moved to Palmdale and would not allow her to watch the children because she was trying to force Nadya to give her the children.”
Octomom’s rep also says that one of the women has been stalking her and the children.
La Habra police sent the case to the Orange County District Attorney’s office, which rejected the allegations due to insufficient evidence.
According to Suleman’s rep, she intends to go “after [her accusers] for slander.”
