Nadya Suleman has been visited by social workers and a police offer following allegations of child neglect.

Suleman - nicknamed 'Octomom' by the media after giving birth to octuplets in January 2009 - received a visit to her California home on Tuesday (April 24) after her hairdresser expressed concerns.

The mother of 14 children was accused of letting her offspring live in horrendous conditions, TMZ reports.

The La Habra Police Department and the Orange County Department of Family and Children's Services were contacted after Suleman's hairdresser claimed that there is only one working toilet at the property and that some of the children were using portable training toilets located in their bedrooms and in the backyard.

The source also alleged that the children appeared malnourished and unbathed, the property was dirty and that she observed Suleman locking her children in a bedroom while she tended to personal matters.



In a video published on the website, Suleman can be heard telling a police officer and children's services workers, "Excuse the graffiti".

The group reportedly stayed at Suleman's house for 90 minutes, but left after they determined that the children were not in danger and in turn wouldn't be removed from the family home.

However there will be a follow-up with Children's Services and authorities will continue to investigate.
