The Beverly Hills fertility doctor who helped Nadya Suleman give birth to 14 children, including octuplets, has been accused by the California Medical Board of repeated gross negligence. Both Suleman and Dr. Michael Kamrava made international headlines last January, after the Southern California woman gave birth to only the second set of octuplets ever delivered in the United States. Her babies, who will turn 1 on Jan. 28, are the longest-surviving set. Suleman is a single mother who was unemployed and living with her parents.

" Octomom " Nadya Suleman, who drew international attention in 2009 when she gave birth to octuplets, has been  charged with an additional count of welfare fraud, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office said Wednesday. The amended felony complaint includes an additional count of aid by misrepresentation, and alleges Suleman, 38, received nearly $10,000 in Medi-Cal benefits she was not entitled to. Prosecutors said earlier this month that Suleman received $16,481 in state welfare payments during the first half of 2013 that she would not have been sent had she properly disclosed nearly $30,000 in earnings during that same period.

"Octomom" Nadya Suleman, who drew international attention in 2009 when she gave birth to octuplets, could face years in jail for allegedly failing to disclose nearly $30,000 in earnings when she applied for welfare last year, prosecutors announced Monday. Suleman, 38, is only the second U.S. woman to deliver a healthy set of octuplets. The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office said prosecutors recently charged her with one count of aid by misrepresentation and two counts of perjury by false application for aid. Suleman, who has a total of 14 children, filed for welfare in Lancaster in January and February of last year, but in the following months didn't report all of her income from personal appearances and video royalties, Deputy Dist.

"Octomom" Nadya Suleman is in trouble again - this time with the law. L.A. County prosecutors announced Monday that the mother of octuplets had been charged with one count of aid by misrepresentation and two counts of perjury by false application for aid, L.A. Now reported. What does that mean, in English? Cutting to the chase, it means she could face more than five years behind bars if convicted of all the felonies. The mother of 14 is accused of failing to report nearly $30,000 in income - earned via appearances and royalties from her self-pleasuring porn video - when she applied for welfare in the first half of last year.

Got 14 kids and a fledgling adult-entertainment career? The only thing missing might be rehab - but not anymore for "Octomom" Nadya Suleman, who reportedly checked into a treatment facility over the weekend.  Suleman, who moved her brood from La Habra to a Palmdale rental home in September, is getting help to get off doctor-prescribed Xanax and "learn to deal with her stress, exhaustion and anxiety" with professional help, her rep told TMZ. ...

“Octomom” Nadya Suleman filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy on Monday in Orange County, suggesting there's some validity to the notion that for a single mom with 14 kids and no steady job, it can be difficult to pay the bills. "I have had to make some very difficult decisions this year, and filing Chapter 7 was one of them," Suleman told the Orange County Register in an email sent by her manager. "But I have to do what is best for my children, and I need a fresh start. " Among those tough choices: Deciding to accept $2,000 a month in food stamps and posing nearly nude in March for British magazine Closer -- though she told Anderson Cooper she was “not ashamed” of what she'd done in exchange for $8,000.

An Orange County judge has agreed to appoint a guardian to examine the finances of octuplets mother Nadya Suleman's 14 children. A child-labor activist has filed suit against Suleman in Orange County Superior Court, alleging that video shot of her children violates a law aimed at protecting child entertainers from overwork. The suit seeks to create an independent trust for the children. Suleman said there was no need for a guardian. Suleman, who was already a mother of six, made headlines in January when she gave birth to eight more children.

Even in this economy, Nadya Suleman, a.k.a. the “Octomom,” continues to find work, albeit with a killer commute: The La Habra mama has booked a stripper gig at a gentleman's club in Florida. Next week, Suleman will perform seven times over four days at T's Lounge in West Palm Beach, according to the club's website. And yes, the mother of octuplets, twins and a handful of other tykes “will appear topless at some point during her show,” her rep told CNN on Monday. What audiences can expect during the rest of the show was unclear - though perhaps that's for the best.

Michael Kamrava, the Beverly Hills fertility expert who treated octuplets mom Nadya Suleman, wants his medical license back from the state of California, according to recently filed court records. An attorney for Kamrava contended that the Medical Board of California's ultimate decision to revoke Kamrava's medical license, effective July 1, was too harsh and a reaction to the "popular vilification" of Kamrava in the media. "The revocation of Dr. Kamrava's license is hardly necessary to protect the public.

The medical ethics controversy that erupted when Nadya Suleman gave birth to octuplets two years ago took a decisive turn Wednesday when the California medical board announced it will revoke the license of the Beverly Hills fertility doctor who helped the single mother of six conceive eight more children. The "Octomom" case focused national attention on what critics have called "the Wild West" of fertility medicine. And Dr. Michael Kamrava, who assisted Suleman by implanting her with 12 embryos, became a symbol to some of the problems in the burgeoning industry.
