Octo-neighbor: “ever since the babies there’s been a lot of commotion”

A neighbor of Octomom Nayda Suleman used a shotgun to threaten paparazzi outside Suleman’s Whittier home, officials said Tuesday.

WHITTIER – A neighbor of Nadya Suleman, who gave birth to octuplets last month, brandished a shotgun and yelled threats last night, prompting Whittier Police to come to the cul de sac. 


Sally Ramirez said she lives next door to the man, who she said is usually a quiet neighbor.

“He’s a nice man,” she said. “Maybe he was just trying to scare them off.”

Ramirez said the usually sleepy neighborhood has been busier and louder since the announcement that Suleman, who lives in her mother’s house at the end of the street, was adding octuplets to her brood of six children younger than 7. The family’s home on Sunrise Drive is headed toward foreclosure, according to documents.

Ramirez said Suleman told her she would soon be moving to a large house owned by a friend. She said she hopes that when her neighbor leaves, the street will be quiet again.

“Ever since she had the babies, there’s been a lot of commotion,” Ramirez said.
