Truth rating: 10

By Michael Lewittes


Nadya “Octomom” Suleman has checked into rehab for a prescription pill problem, leaving her 14 children in the care of nannies.

Over the weekend, Suleman was admitted to Chapman House Drug Rehabilitation Center in California in order to deal with her addiction to the anti-anxiety drug Xanax.

Her rep tells Gossip Cop in a statement, “Nadya Suleman checked herself into Chapman House Treatment Center last Tuesday evening for anxiety, exhaustion and stress.”

“Ms. Suleman has been taking Xanax that was prescribed by her doctor to deal with her anxiety but she felt she needed a treatment program to help with her recovery. She will be in treatment for 28 days or more if needed.”

Suleman’s kids will reportedly be taken care of by three different nannies during her rehab stay.
