'Octomom' house auction delayed again; owner speaks out

ORANGE, Calif.

Homeowner Amer Haddadin said Suleman has not paid rent for about a year.

"I'm so disappointed today. I was hoping that this house will sell off today and get rid of all the mess, all the news," Haddadin said.

Haddadin says he tried to help Suleman when she had her octuplets. He claims she did not qualify for a loan, so he kept the mortgage on the La Habra home in his name. Now, he says she's behind on 11 payments, owing him $33,000, plus the principle amount of the home.

"My credit is ruined, and I cannot take that anymore. This is very, very bad on me," Haddadin said.

It's just the latest string of problems for Suleman, who famously gave birth to the octuplets in 2009. Last month, social service investigators showed up to her house after photos were released prompting concern about the living conditions in the home. Authorities later determined her children were not in any danger.

Suleman spoke exclusively with ABC News, confessing having 14 kids is hard.

"I'm not complaining. I can't because I put myself in the situation," she said.

If Suleman's house is auctioned off, she and her children will likely be forced to move. And after her bankruptcy filing earlier this month, it's unclear if they have a place to go.

"Five years ago if you told me that this would be my life, I would have laughed so hard I probably would have peed a little in my pants," Suleman said.

The auction has been rescheduled for Thursday at 9 a.m.
