    Octomom Nadya Suleman wants to set the record straight.

    Since she checked into rehab on Oct. 23, there have been plenty of rumors about the conditions under which the mom of 14 sought treatment.

    Earlier this week, Suleman's rep shot down reports that Michael Lohan staged an intervention. Now, the single mom-turned-adult film star is speaking out from rehab to explain her situation.

    "I chose to seek treatment after consulting with my manager regarding my recent use of Xanax, which was prescribed by my physician for panic attacks," Suleman, 37, said in a statement to E! News Thursday. "There were no other people involved with me entering treatment other than my manager and myself."

    "There was no intervention that took place," she reiterated. "I am working in therapy every day with my doctors and therapists regarding the origin of these attacks so as not to have to rely on medications to handle it. I am paying for my own treatment; I am finding my voice here."

    We certainly hope she makes a full recovery soon.
