Nadya Suleman, the mother who became famous when she gave birth to octuplets in 2009, is back on welfare.

Suleman's rep, Gina Rodriguez, told ABCNews.com that Suleman, the mother of 14, has once again sought out "state assistance for a brief period of time."

"She spent most of her savings while she was in Chapman Treatment center, paying for around-the-clock nannies, drivers, security and her treatment program," Rodriguez said in an email. "She does not expect to be on longer than three months."

Suleman weaned herself off welfare five months ago but her bank account was quickly depleted after she entered rehab in October for what her rep said was "anxiety, exhaustion and stress."

"She was prescribed Xanax for her anxiety attacks. She was not addicted to it. She has an overabundance of stress and exhaustion and wanted to deal with it without prescription drugs," Rodriguez told the ABCNews.com at the time.

The 37-year-old mother had been supporting her family by stripping and filming a solo porn video.

Those poor kids. I can't imagine having to grow up in that environment. I mean- it's bad enough if your mom is stripping, doing porn, and popping pills. Imagine having it all publisized?!

 The question I keep coming back to with her is why on earth did she have so many kids when she didn't have the help and financial means necesarry to raise such a brood?
