Octomom Nadya Suleman temporarily left drug rehab and headed to Tennessee to film a parody music video that reportedly paid her $1,500.
Suleman, who gained international attention after giving birth to octuplets in 2009, is enrolled in a 28-day drug rehab program which is expected to wind up on Nov. 20. She’s being treated for panic attacks, exhaustion, and Xanax dependency.
In 2011, the then 35-year-old mother appeared on Oprah Show and admitted feeling overwhelmed and sleep-deprived caring for her 14 children.
“I think I could have been self-medicating through children,” Suleman confessed. “I felt like a watering can with holes in it. In my delusional mind, the more I give to them, the more of me is leaking out. When it’s empty I go back, ‘Doctor, one more [baby].”
On top of being unemployed, Suleman had to battle eviction after failing to repay balloon payment on her house. Her lack of regular income has left her to fall into debt and struggle in providing for her children.
