The octuplet crazymom:

A good comprehensive story at the Guardian. Excerpts:
...Suleman still lives with her parents. Her family has revealed that she may have serious mental-health problems and be addicted to having children. ...

Court records in nearby San Bernardino show that Suleman's mother filed for bankruptcy last year, claiming $1m in liabilities as a result of a bad housing investment. At the same time, the records hint at an unusual personal history for the family. They show that Suleman - who changed her name from Nadya Doud in 2001 - divorced her husband, Marcos GutiƩrrez, a year ago. GutiƩrrez, however, may not be the father of her first six children, because the divorce filing indicates no children were produced from the marriage.

In fact, birth certificates name one "David Solomon" as the father of her eldest four children. It also seems that Suleman had been living with her parents, not her husband, for the past eight years, at a variety of addresses. However, her own parents, who still live together, are also divorced, having legally separated in Las Vegas in 1999.

Suleman herself seems to have little employment history. Neighbours have reported that she worked as a psychiatric technician before she began having children.
An "an unusual personal history for the family", indeed.

Sounds like the woman and her fertility doctor were as out-of-control and without any rational oversight as the financial industry over the last few years.
