TMZ is reporting that Vivid Entertainment Founder and Co-Chairman Steven Hirsch is currently negotiating to purchase the $450,000 note to save “Octomom” Nadya Suleman’s California home from foreclosure.
According to the article, Hirsch feels acquiring the note would be a great opportunity to begin a working relationship with Suleman, who has declined numerous offers from the Vivid honcho to work with the studio in various capacities – from starring in a sex tape to hosting company parties during AEE weekend.
