Nadya Suleman’s fifteen second of fame may be over, but now she is reportedly facing real time – in prison.
The “Octomom,” as she is known, has been accused of felony welfare fraud after allegedly hiding income from appearances, “People” reports.
Suleman faces more than five years in prison after reportedly failing to report $30,000 of income from those appearances and residuals.
The 38-year-old woman, who has fourteen children in total, including her octuplets, is expected in court on Friday.
Suleman filed for bankruptcy nearly two years ago, according to E! News.
“I have had to make some very difficult decisions this year and Filing Chapter 7 was one of them,” she told E! in a statement. “But I have to do what is best for my children and I need a fresh start.”
At the time, Suleman said she was unable to pay her bills and owned somewhere between $500,000 and $1 million in liabilities.
