Octomom off welfare

  |   July 21, 2012 at 11:32 AM
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., July 21 (UPI) -- "Octomom" Nadya Suleman, a mother of 14, has earned enough money from stripping to go off welfare, TMZ reported.

Suleman went on welfare in March, saying she needed the money to feed her octuplets and six previous children, a decision that resulted in death threats.

With the money she's earned from stripping at a West Palm Beach, Fla., strip club -- in the six figures -- she did not have to renew her welfare in June when her three-month cycle ended, a source, whose name was not reported, told TMZ.

At the time she first started accepting California food stamps, Suleman told NBC's "Today" show she felt ashamed.

"I feel ashamed, but who cares how I feel," she said. "It's 100 percent about my children."

"My priority is my children -- their health, their well-being, their safety," she added.
