Nadya Suleman, whose 14 children include octuplets, could avoid being evicted from her Californian home if the mortgage holder cuts a deal with a porn kingpin.

After giving Ms Suleman repeated warnings to pay the 450,000 US dollars that is due or get out, Amer Haddadin said he is now considering an offer from Vivid Entertainment co-founder Steve Hirsch to foot the bill.

Ms Suleman, dubbed "Octomom" after giving birth to octuplets, has repeatedly declined Hirsch's offers - one million US dollars at one point - to appear in porn videos.

Mr Haddadin said half a million dollars is nothing to Hirsch, whose company is one of the biggest pornography companies based in California's San Fernando Valley.

"I am open to any option that (allows me to) finish with this matter," Mr Haddadin said. "I like his offer, and I'm going to go ahead with it if I can, but we'll see after Monday."

Mr Haddadin said he is meeting with his lawyer on Monday to talk about the deal and further eviction procedures, and Ms Suleman won't face eviction before the weekend, as previously reported.

Hirsch said he is not trying to pressure Ms Suleman into porn, but he would use her housing woes to start a conversation that brings her to work for Vivid.

"There'd be no pressure on her. We're not looking to foreclose on the note, but if nothing else it would give us opportunity to meet with her," Hirsch said. "She's made it clear she doesn't want to do an adult movie. Maybe there are other things we could do that she would be interested in."

Hirsch said Ms Suleman could keep her clothes on and work as a Vivid representative, a role similar to a master of ceremonies, welcoming people to Vivid parties.

The work could help cover Ms Suleman's monthly costs, Hirsch said.
