(Newser) – A pre-octuplets Nadya Suleman was investigated by LA’s Department of Children and Family Services, TMZ reports—and cops have been called to her last two homes eight times for reasons ranging from a missing child to a feared break-in. DCFS visited the home in July after a neighbor complained Suleman’s original six children “were not clean or being fed properly,” but found the allegations “unfounded.”

Between that neighbor and the one who brandished a shotgun—the reason for one police visit to the Suleman home—the family’s decision to move is understandable. Suleman blogged on that they are moving to a “safe” house on a cul-de-sac, MSNBC reports. Suleman also revealed her plan to go off food stamps: “My goal is not to be a burden on any taxpayer.”
