Seven years have passed since Nadya Suleman – who now goes by “Natalie” – made headlines as “Octomom”.
And since then, his eight children – two girls and six boys – are not the only ones who have grown!
In a new interview, the mother-of-14 not only opens in doing porn and struggling with drugs, but also says that “killed” the character “Octomom” in order to save herself and her children.
“I went down for a very dark and destructive path,” he says of his time in the spotlight. “I am fully exploited and dehumanized pornography and dispossession.
I was so desperate that we were about to become homeless, so instead of putting my children in front of the camera I decided to get out there. The consequences of the exploitation of myself was deep toxic shame and disgust.
To continue, I had to numb – and that was when I started with prescription drugs.
While Natalie undoubtedly has regrets about his life, he insists that the octuplets – and her six older children – are not something he regrets.
“I admit I made many mistakes in my life and I am imperfect. I make mistakes constantly,” he explains. “But my children were not a mistake -. They were meant to be here”
