"Octomom" Nadya Suleman has been charged with an additional count of welfare fraud, bringing the total charges to four.

Prosecutors say Suleman, who has 14 children including the octuplets that made her famous, did not report all of her income when she applied for aid through various government programs last year.

They allege Suleman neglected to report about $30,000 that she earned by working as a topless dancer and acting in adult films in 2013

A Los Angeles County District Attorney also told CNN that Suleman “allegedly failed to disclose that she was also getting checks from personal appearances and residuals from videos.”

Suleman has been in the media since she had the octuplets in 2009, and her financial struggles over the years resulted in her filing bankruptcy last year. That case failed to go through the court system because of paperwork issues.

Suleman pleaded not guilty to the first three welfare fraud charges filed, and she will be arraigned in March on the latest charge accusing her of getting almost $10,000 in MediCal benefits she should not have received.

Radar Online broke the story last April that Suleman and her 14 kids were getting free health insurance through MediCal.

CNN said Suleman could get up to six years and four months in prison if she is found guilty.
