Could "Octomom" Nadya Suleman and her 14 children join the ranks of Americans facing foreclosure? Yes, says Amer Haddadin, a man who claims he holds the mortgage to Suleman's 4-bedroom, 3-bath home in La Habra, California. (See video below.) Haddadin says Suleman has not yet paid a lump "balloon sum" — due March 10 — of $450,000, and has also neglected several monthly payments of $4,130. "What [Suleman and her family] are doing to me is not right, and I am going to take it to the courts," Haddadin told reporters. (He has since said he would give Suleman until next Tuesday to pay the owed amount.)
