LOS ANGELES (AP) — An attorney for “Octomom” Nadya Suleman says she agreed to a paid interview and semi-nude photographs for a British magazine because she’s struggling financially.

Southern California attorney Jeff Czech said Tuesday that with 14 children to care for, Suleman can’t hold down a regular job to pay bills and “does whatever she can.”

In photos posted to TMZ.com and published in Britain’s Closer magazine, Suleman wears panties and little else.

Czech declined to disclose how much Suleman was paid for the photo shoot and interview.

When Suleman gave birth to octuplets in 2009, she already had six other children. All her children were conceived through in vitro fertility treatments.
