Octomom Nadya Suleman recently showed off her new, sprawling home and seemed happy to be able to provide such nice living quarters for her 14 children, but she has secretly been battling an addiction to doctor-prescribed Xanax for a while now and has finally decided to seek help.
Suleman’s rep told TMZ yesterday that she will be entering rehab for her addiction for a month-long program and is leaving her children in the care of three nannies. She’s also depending on the help of some of her friends to take care of her children while she’s gone.
“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,” her rep said.
While the famous mom filed for bankruptcy earlier this year, she’s had quite a lucrative run in the porn business, which has enabled her to move into a bigger, nicer home and away from the neighborhood where her children were being bullied. TMZ reports that despite her newfound riches, however, the rehab facility has graciously offered their services for free.
