WEST PALM BEACH, Florida (AP) - The woman known as "Octomom" is facing a lawsuit after backing out of a deal to strip at a South Florida club.
T's Lounge has sued Nadya Suleman, who had agreed to dance topless in eight shows that were to begin Wednesday, and is seeking an emergency injunction to keep her from appearing at a competing club.
Suleman has been summoned to appear in court, but no hearing has yet been set. It is unclear whether the matter will be resolved before she's set to take the stage The Playhouse Gentleman's Club in Hollywood on Friday.
Phone and e-mail messages left for Gina Rodriguez, a spokeswoman for Suleman, were not returned Tuesday.
The California woman rose to fame in 2009 when she gave birth to octuplets. She has since sunk into financial ruin, recently declaring bankruptcy.
