The mother of 14 — including her famous octuplets, who will turn 4 later this month — first went on welfare in March, according to TMZ, but she was able to start supporting herself in July, partially as a result of money she made posing nude and doing pornography. But in October, Suleman entered rehab for addiction to Xanax, and those bills have landed her back on the dole.

Suleman will receive nearly $3,000 a month for food and emergency cash, plus Medi-Cal benefits to help with mental health and dental bills, according to TMZ.
