"I have had to make some very difficult decisions this year, and filing Chapter 7 was one of them," Suleman said in a statement sent to the paper. "But I have to do what is best for my children, and I need a fresh start."
Suleman gave birth to eight babies in January 2009 having previously six. She is single and unemployed.
On April 26 she admitted to ABC's Good Morning America she receives $4,000 to $5,000 per month in public assistance and vowed to not give birth again.
"Never, never, never, never, never, never, never, no more babies," she told GMA.
Her house was recently inspected after Suleman's stylist reported her 14 children were living in very poor conditions.
California authorities inspected the house and ruled the children were not in danger.
