, who stunned the nation when she gave birth to eight babies earlier this year, has asked the nannies from non-profit group Angels in Waiting
to leave her home, turning away thousands of dollars in free caregiving.
The arrangement with Angels in Waiting came about after celebrity attorney Gloria Allred
filed a complaint with Child Protective Services about Suleman, now mother to 14 children. She alleged that Suleman was incapable of caring for her growing family, and threatened that Suleman's children might be taken into foster care without appropriate caregiving. "Nadya felt that she was being judged wrongfully, and she didn't need it."
Suleman's attorney and spokesperson, Jeff Czech, says, "It was a poor fit from the start," noting, "Suleman felt uncomfortable by some of the things that Gloria Allred said, starting with her complaint to CPS...Nadya felt that she was being judged wrongfully, and she didn't need it."
According to People,
Allred was caught off-guard by the news that Suleman had fired the nannies, saying "I haven't heard anything. I'm really surprised."
Czech has said Suleman will rely on nannies "that she's paid for." Suleman told US Magazine,
"Yes, it's true. I released AIW. It was really bad. That's all I can say. I can't confirm why, in particular. I will be releasing the details soon."
She probably means she'll be discussing the matter on an upcoming episode of Dr. Phil
has reported that both Suleman and nannies from Angels in Waiting are taping an appearance to discuss the matter. Because everything is best settled on television, of course.
Hopefully Suleman will hire nannies of her own quite soon; with four of her newborns still in the shospital, the caregiving situation only stands to get more complicated as her children continue to be released into her care.
