LA HABRA, Calif. — ‘Octomom’ Nadya Suleman has failed to file the proper paperwork in her bankruptcy case, opening the door to creditors to collect debts and allowing a foreclosure to go ahead against the house she lives in.

The Orange County Register reports Suleman’s case was thrown out Tuesday for failing to file a dozen financial documents and statements required to file for bankruptcy.

Suleman is an unemployed single mother of 14 children who became famous after giving birth to octuplets in 2009. Her octuplets are the world’s longest living set.

Suleman had sought protection from her debts under Chapter 7 bankruptcy. According to the filing, she owes money to more than 20 parties, including utilities companies, her father and a Christian school.

A representative for Suleman did not immediately provide comment.
