LOS ANGELES—Octuplets mother Nadya Suleman says she fired volunteer nurses working in her home because they were unprofessional and invasive.

In a video posted Tuesday to, Suleman alleges that Angels in Waiting founder Linda West-Conforti made repeated and unprofessional threats that her children were going to be abducted.

Suleman says she was also uncomfortable with what she called constant interrogations while Conforti was in her home.

Lawyer Gloria Allred, who represents the nonprofit nursing group, refused comment in response to an e-mail sent by The Associated Press.

She has scheduled a press conference for Wednesday.
