Nadya Suleman, the American woman better known as Octomom, surprised many this week after appearing nude in the UK's Closer magazine despite swearing she would never do so - however, claim that she is so desperate for cash she was forced to bite the bullet.
The entertainment website claim Suleman is days away from being homeless, with the house she owns being sold at auction on Thursday (March 29, 2012) after being in and out of foreclosure for over a year. The dilemma for Suleman is that she still needs to get together last month's rent as well as pay for a new place, therefore she jumped at the chance to pose for Closer after being offered $10,000. Octomom - who has fourteen children in total - has been up front about her reasons for the shoot, saying, "I'm doing that (posing nude) because I need to feed my kids. I need to pay the bills. And I'm still very cognizant of the repercussions of my choices".
It's not the first time that Suleman has been offered cash to go naked - adult movie giants Vivid Entertainment allegedly offered the mother-of-fourteen a $1 million contract back in 2009, but she rejected the deal.
