An attorney for Nadya "Octomom" Suleman is denying a report that the controversial mom has been banned from a gym.

TMZ reported that Suleman fell behind on her membership fees at least three times at L.A.'s 24 Hour Fitness. The website claims she used at least two credit or debit cards that were declined, and due to a "3 strikes rule," her membership was cut off Jan. 4. (The site later reported that an anonymous benefactor went to the fitness center Wednesday and bought Suleman a one-year membership.)

But Jeff Czech, Suleman's lawyer, tells "Nothing happened. She doesn't even have credit cards. Apparently, the health club tried to call the bank to get some direct payment out of Nadya's account and the bank wouldn’t let them. That's all."

Suleman -- whose octuplets turn 1 Jan. 26 -- is "still working out," he tells Us.

He denies that she has any money problems and that she is living month-to-month.

Says Czech, "She makes money and she certainly should be able to afford [to go to the gym]."
