VIVID ENTERTAINMENT DECIDES NOT TO BUY THE MORTGAGE ON NADYA “OCTOMOM” SULEMAN’S HOME
Suleman Turns Down Vivid’s No-Strings-Attached Mortgage Payment for February
LOS ANGELES – (January 26, 2011) – Vivid Entertainment founder and co-chairman Steven Hirsch says he will not move forward to purchase Nadya “Octomom” Suleman’s mortgage note.
The decision comes after Suleman’s rejection of the company’s no-strings-attached offer to pay her February mortgage in an attempt to help her avoid foreclosure on her Southern California home.
There, of course, are strings.
Mr. Hirsch met recently with real estate developer Amer Haddadin about the possibility of buying the note for a $450,000 mortgage on the house which he holds. “We carefully reviewed the loan documents concerning the house where Nadya lives,” said Mr. Hirsch. “After consulting with our attorneys, it became clear to us that there were details that cause us concern and we are therefore unable to move forward. This was always about helping Nadya as well as making a sensible business decision. Unfortunately, we were not able to accomplish that. We wish Nadya the best of luck in solving the issues related to her home,” said Hirsch.
Mr. Hirsch recently sent a check to cover Suleman’s February mortgage payment to her attorney, Jeff Czech.
“Jeff Czech said Nadya’s only comment was ‘Tell them to keep their money,’” Hirsch said. “We find it difficult to understand why she turned it [sic] down our offer which was designed only to help her and her 14 children and did not require that she perform in any Vivid movies or even come to work for us in any capacity.”
I’ll take the money, then.
Over the past two years Hirsch has made several overtures to Suleman in an attempt to help her support her 14 children. The company offered her $1-million in Feb. of 2009 to appear in an adult movie, but she declined this proposal and two other offers that didn’t involve performing. One was to be a production assistant at the studio and the other was to host night club parties for Vivid at this month’s Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas.
“We have been exploring ways to develop a business relationship with Nadya, which would assist her with her housing issues,” Mr. Hirsch said. “Nadya has made it clear she doesn’t want to perform in an adult movie, which we respect. She’s a fascinating personality and we had hoped to be able to help her with her financial situation.”
The porn industry is a rich tapestry of hard workers, attention seekers, deluded actors, talented artists, and people with nowhere else to go. For some of these people, a life in porn might be the best thing that ever happened to them. But not for Suleman. That lack of a string would drag everyone down.
Vivid should buy Suleman’s home for her anonymously and never send out a press release. Either that or just leave her alone.
