Nadya Suleman created a media storm when she admitted in April that she had been unemployed and on public assistance programs when she gave birth to octuplets in 2009. The eight babies and the six she already had at that point had all been conceived through assisted reproductive technology, giving rise to an investigation of Dr. Michael Kamrava by the Medical Board of California.
Suleman has claimed she had asked Kamrava to implant the remaining embryos after the birth of her six children because she did not want them destroyed, saying that two of the six embryos split into twins after the procedure. The review by the medical Board of California, however, discovered that Kamrava had in fact implanted 12 embryos at that time. Kamrava was eventually expelled from the American Society for Reproductive Medicine on October, 2009 — nine months after the octuplets’ birth. Since then, Kamrava has stated that he is still in possession of other Suleman embryos.
It’s a mess, and not just for the doctor. Suleman still has not had much luck securing economic stability for herself or her children. In a last-ditch attempt to avoid getting evicted from her home, which was foreclosed in June but received no bids at auction, the mother of 14 has done everything from stripping to porn. Now, looking to raise $150,000 to buy a new home, she’s taking a step closer to the less legal side of the adult industry by offering herself up on the pay-for-dates site WhatsYourPrice.com.
“My name is Nadya Suleman and I am famous for having 14 children,” opens her profile. “I am a single mom and have been celibate for 14 years, all my children were through IVF. If I have to describe myself I would say I am full of energy, love to work out (when I can get a chance), I am very athletic and love to laugh. I don’t have a lot of experience with dating but I think this will be fun! My ideal date is working out or doing something athletic and then having a nice dinner.”
The price is set at $500. Among her interests, Suleman lists that she’s seeking “mutually beneficial arrangements (Sugar Daddy / Sugar Baby).” She’s willing to travel!
