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.) Some bloggers are less than sympathetic: "What we want to know," says Dennis Romero at LAWeekly.com, "is, where's all the Fox TV special, reality show and tabloid money going?"
