'Octomom' bankruptcy application rejected

'Octomom' bankruptcy application rejected

Nadya Suleman's bankruptcy case has been dismissed.

The parent of octuplets, known as 'Octomom' attempted to file for Chapter Seven, the most serious form of US bankruptcy on April 30 but her papers have been rejected.

According to documents filed today, Nadya didn't file all the necessary paperwork in time and never asked the court for an extension.

Therefore creditors are once more free to request the funds owed to them after failing to gain financial protection, according to TMZ.

The mother of 14 children reportedly owes between $500,000 and $1,000,000 (€388,000 and €777,000) to various creditors ... including doctors, lawyers, teachers and a satellite television company.

Bankruptcy documents claimed she only had under $50,000 (€38,000) to her name.

In March she began being supported by the American welfare system, getting payments of $2,000 (€1,550) a month from the State of California.

That same month she defended her decision to reveal her half-naked post-pregnancy body in Britain's Closer magazine, claiming she isn't ashamed.

She told TMZ.com: "I'm not ashamed of doing it. I feel as though no woman or man should be ashamed of their body."
