Octuplets mother now has agent but no publicist

LOS ANGELES (AP) - The public relations group that's been representing octuplets mother Nadya Suleman is stepping down.

Company president Joann Killeen says it's because of death threats. She also says Suleman now has an agent: Wes Yoder. He's the same man who arranged book and music deals for the McCaughey septuplets a decade ago and publicity for pastor Rick Warren.

Killeen says her Los Angeles agency is ending its free representation after receiving at least 100 graphic e-mailed threats and swarms of nasty voicemails. She says some of its other clients have been threatened, too.

The 33-year-old single, unemployed mother has conceived 14 children thorough invitro fertilization. And word that she's receiving public assistance to care for them has stoked a lot of public anger.

Police are investigating the threats.

Suleman is now living in an undisclosed location.
