Debt-ridden mum of 14 Nadya Suleman is on her way to Sydney.
Octomum’s despairing dad Ed Suleman is adamant that moving to Australia is the only way to save his destitute daughter. In an exclusive interview with Woman’s Day, the embarrassed and heartbroken 69-year-old says he’s already made secret emigration plans.
“People in America hate my daughter and that breaks my heart, so I think the only solution is for us to all move away,” says Ed. “And I can’t think of a better place for us to go than Australia, as living in California has become toxic for Nadya. She’s constantly being attacked by paparazzi and judged by her peers for going on government funding. “Australians are very laid back … they’re very friendly and I think our family would fit in nicely there.”
The family won’t be at a total loss when they arrive, as one of Nadya’s uncles, John, lives in Sydney and works in the fishing industry. Though his house is bound to be much too small to fit the oversized family, he supports the move.
“He said whenever we’re ready to move he will help us get settled in,” reveals Ed. Nadya already had six children when she gave birth to the octuplets in 2009, and having made no financial provision for them, has since faced crippling debts. Bankrupt and with her house repossessed, she reached an all-time low in May when she starred in a porn film to make ends meet.
