There are many new tidbits being learned about octuplet mom Nadya Suleman and the fertility doctor who allegedly implanted her with six embryos.
Despite the strain of having fourteen children, Suleman went out for a manicure Friday and spent at least part of Wednesday shopping for videogames, as seen in a photo obtained by TMZ. The site also unearthed documents showing Suleman failed to pay multiple parking tickets and had her minivan booted two years ago.
Nadya has reportedly put a gag order on her mother Angela, with whom she has lived and who has cared for her six older children, after Angela accepted money for a videotaped interview. Nadya's publicist Joann Killeen said:
"I had to put a gag on Nadya's mother, who sold her out to RadarOnline. They paid her $40,000 to sell [Nadya] out and she can't talk about her daughter for three months."...
She also believes Nadya Suleman's days in maternity wards are over.
"There's nothing left in the frozen vault," Killeen says. "There's nothing left to defrost."
A church is also hitting out against Suleman, saying that, despite reports, they do not know Nadya and are not helping her find a home. The released a statement saying part (bolding HuffPo's):
Nadya Suleman has recently commented she attends Calvary Chapel Golden Springs, which prompted several media follow up inquires concerning her attendance. Since our church is not membership-driven, we are unable to confirm or deny whether she actively attends this fellowship.
We can say, however, that she is not personally known to our pastors or staff. And to the best of our knowledge, Ms. Suleman's only contact with us was a minor inquiry regarding our Children's Ministry.
Ms. Suleman has also been credited with commenting that our church is in someway involved with the establishment of a foundation for donation distribution, providing her with financial assistance, and helping her locate a new residence. Our church is not involved in any of these activities.
Suleman's doctor is now under additional scrutiny about a woman in her late 40s who already had three children, but wanted just one with her new, younger husband:
A few months after Dr. Michael Kamrava helped Nadya Suleman become pregnant with octuplets, he transferred at least seven embryos to another patient...
Now she's five months pregnant with quadruplets and hospitalized at Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center, according to several sources familiar with the situation.
The woman in the latest case arrived recently at Good Samaritan Hospital in Los Angeles for unspecified treatment but was transferred last week to County-USC Medical Center because she lacks insurance.
In recent days Suleman has started a website accepting PayPal donations.
