Nadya Suleman, who gained fame when she gave birth to octuplets in 2009, is due in court in Los Angeles later this week on a welfare fraud charge for allegedly failing to report nearly $30,000 in earnings from personal appearances and video residuals, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office announced Monday.

The 38-year-old mother of 14, whose real name is Natalie Denise Suleman, was charged Jan. 6 with one count of aid by misrepresentation and two counts of perjury by false application by aid.
