Nadya "Octomom" Suleman has lashed out at recent claims of alleged sexual abuse that have been made by her former nannies.
The mother of 14 spoke out in response to disturbing claims that she allegedly ignored inappropriate touching between one of her sons and daughters. Octomom insists that her former nannies are lying and that no such incident has ever taken place.
"All of this is blatant lies!" Octomom told TMZ.com while suggesting that both women are obsessed with her brood. "[One nanny] wanted to do her best to KEEP my eight [for herself]. [The nannies] are hating because they can't have what I have."
One of the former nannies spoke directly with CBS2 and has reportedly been in contact with Child Protective Services with regards to their claims.
"[One of the boys] would take [his sibling] away and take her to another area. And he would be touching her," the woman said.
"[Octomom] never did [anything]. 'It's okay, don't worry about it.' That was her attitude," she went on.
Octomom revealed that while she has indeed spoken with Child Protective services, "[they] saw the kids were well taken care of."
This is the second time in recent months that Octomom has been embroiled in controversy with regards to her parenting.
The 36-year-old received a visit from law enforcement and Children and Family Services in April after her hair stylist Stephanie filed a child neglect complaint.
Stephanie alleges that Octomom's children appear to be malnourished and look dirty and unkempt.
She also accused Octomom of locking her children in a bedroom at her home while she tended to personal matters.
Stephanie also accused Octomom of forcing the children to use portable training toilets, allegedly placed in their bedrooms and in the backyard, because there is only one working toilet in the house. A child neglect investigation is reportedly still open.
