LOS ANGELES (AP) — "Octomom" Nadya Suleman says financial troubles as she tries to raise 14 children have put her back on food stamps.

Suleman said Thursday that she's been forced to break her vow to refuse public assistance and has received $2,000 in food stamps for each of the last two months. She was interviewed by Matt Lauer on NBC's "Today" show.

Suleman says she's working as hard as she can to support the children and has business ventures in the works.

Her lawyer said last week that she had posed semi-nude for a British magazine to raise money.

Suleman told Lauer she would never let her family be broken up because she couldn't care for the children.

In January, 2009, Suleman gave birth to eight babies who became the world's longest-living octuplets.
