Octomom, Mandy made headlines all over the world when it was revealed that she would be giving birth to eight children. In her previous relationship, Mandy shared a son with her ex-husband.
In 1996, Mandy had given birth to her eight children over three days. Unfortunately, she lost all of them within hours of giving birth to them. Upon learning of this tragedy, she appeared on the Oprah show and received support from the late Princess Diana.
After the passing of her eight children, she received an immense amount of criticism. People felt that she should have aborted some of her children so that her other children may have a chance to survive. The Octomom expressed a great annoyance with these claims.
According to the Daily Mail, Octomom, Mandy, did not deal with the passing of her children well. Following the loss of her children, she went on to turn into an alcoholic. It is alleged that she drank from the time she would wake up and even went and got a cab when she ran out of wine.
Mandy went on to have three more children
Now, the Octomom went on to have three more children after the tragedy but her mental health continued to deteriorate. She lost custody of her three girls when she was caught drinking and driving with them. She subsequently lost her driver’s license as a result.
Mandy has since become estranged from her family.
According to reports by The Sun, Mandy’s close family will not be attending her funeral. The service will be paid for by the local council with no mourners present. It is not clear what type of cancer she struggled with.
