New Details Emerge About Octomom's Secret Stripper Past

April 23, 2009

Nadya Suleman, a.k.a. Octomom, has long been ambivalent about her past since making international headlines by popping out eight babies in January. Now a former colleague has stepped forward and revealed that Octomom worked the pole and went by the stage name "Angelina."

Nadya’s secret past was exposed by a former co-worker and stripper by the name of Sage. Sage reveals to In Touch magazine that the two performed together at amateur stripping contests and bachelor parties between 1999 and 2000. She told the magazine, “I met her at an amateur contest, and we wound up doing parties together.” Sage believes the two worked together for about a year.

Luis Ceballos, the limo driver who used to drive Sage and Octomom to gigs, confirms Nadya’s past life as a stripper. He says Nadya “always said she wanted to be really famous” and was "overly flirty with the guys we performed for.”

Nadya previously admitted to being a one-night-only stripper on a radio show in March. She told Los Angeles’ Power 106, “It's true that I was a topless dancer, but that's all. I went to a gentleman's club and performed as a topless dancer. But I only did it one night." The mother of 12 has long claimed that her resemblance to Angelina Jolie was c-incidental and not a result of an obsession with the Hollywood actress. Her use of Angelina as her stripper name makes that difficult to believe.
