"Octomom" Nadya Suleman has again found herself in hot water, this time accused of collecting welfare without revealing income from appearances and videos.
The felony charges, filed Jan. 6 by Los Angeles County prosecutors, include one count of aid by misrepresentation and two counts of perjury. Prosecutors allege Suleman filed for welfare a year ago, and later failed to report $30,000 in income from the first six months of 2013 from personal appearances and residuals from videos.
If convicted, she faces up to five years and eight months behind bars, according to prosecutors.

Nadya "Octomom" Suleman has entered rehab for prescription drug addiction, and her 14 children reportedly will remain with nannies for at least the next month.
Suleman, 37, checked into the Chapman House Treatment Center last week because of "anxiety, exhaustion, and stress" linked to a Xanax addiction, her rep says.
"Ms. Suleman has been taking Xanax that was prescribed by her doctor to deal with her anxiety but she felt she needed a treatment program to help with her recovery," her rep tells ABC News. "She will be in treatment for 28 days or more if needed."

Not even posing nude could save her from losing her shirt.
Nadya "Octomom" Suleman has filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection, listing only $50,000 in assets against up to $1 million in debts, according to papers filed April 27.
"I have had to make some very difficult decisions the year and filing Chapter 7 was one of them," she tells E! News. "But I have to do what is best for my children and I need a fresh start."
The mom of 14, who recently stripped down in a magazine for $8,000, doesn't specify the names of her creditors but provided a clue in the list of those receiving the bankruptcy papers.

Nadya "Octomom" Suelman's nude photo shoot with Britain's Closer magazine came with a price tag – a small one that the mother of 14 is happy to reveal.
"You wanna know how much I got?" Suleman, 36, asks Anderson Cooper on his talk show Anderson airing March 30.
"I got $8,000. I have to do what I have to do to take care of my family, and I'm not ashamed. I'm not ashamed at all ... I've never sacrificed my morals and values."
In fact, Suleman says she does not consider the nearly-nude pictures to be racy.

Slimmed down but still busty after delivering octuplets three years ago, Nadya Suleman now laments, "I get way too much male attention."
That probably won't be changing any time soon. The Octomom posed topless for the U.K. magazine Closer, leaving little to the imagination despite two strategically placed hands.
Despite getting looks from men, Suleman, 36, says she doesn't plan to start dating again until the babies are 18 years old. "I live for them now," she tells the magazine.

California will yank the medical license of the Beverly Hills fertility doctor who implanted 12 embryos into "Octomom" Nadya Suleman three years ago.
Dr. Michael Kamrava will lose his license effective July 1, said the state Medical Board, in a decision more severe than an administrative law judge's recommendation that Kamrava get probation for five years.
At a hearing last year, Kamrava apologized for implanting the embryos into Suleman instead of referring the 33-year-old unemployed single mother of six to a mental-health evaluation.

Octuplets' mother Nadya Suleman may be on the verge of losing her home – but her attorney says she's optimistic she'll will find a way out of her current mess.
"She's struggling right now," Jeff Czech tells PEOPLE. "Recently, things have begun to get dire. But several times in the past, just when things got bad, the money comes in. She's hopeful things will work out."
Only she may not have much time.

It's been one year and umpteen-thousand diaper changes since Nadya Suleman gave birth to her world-famous octuplets. And what a year!
"I don't get much sleep," Suleman, 34, tells PEOPLE. "About two or three hours a night. But I'm continuing to move forward with my life and trying to be the best mother I can be."
Suleman not only made headlines after the birth of her eight babies last Jan. 26 in Bellflower, Calif., the unemployed, single mother of six older children also became a lightning rod for controversy, paparazzi and lawsuits. The experience, she insists, has changed her.

Nadya Suleman's fertility specialist could lose his medical license over allegations by the California Medical Board that he transferred too many embryos into the woman who went on to give birth to octuplets.
A 13-page accusation filed in December says that over 11 years Suleman returned to Dr. Michael Kamrava's office repeatedly. The number of embryos Kamrava transferred in July 2008 was so abnormal they "should not be transferred into any woman, regardless of age" and the transfers went "beyond the reasonable judgment of any treating physician."
The papers suggest Suleman's actions put her current and future children at risk, and Kamrava should have sent Suleman to therapy instead of obliging her extreme maternal cravings. Suleman had six other children and was receiving public assistance.
The allegations will be litigated in administrative court. The Beverly Hills doctor also recently was expelled from a national organization that promotes ethical standards in reproductive medicine.
