Saudia Shuler

A Philadelphia woman who threw a lavish $25,000 Black Panther-themed prom party for her son is charged with illegally obtaining social security benefits.

Saudia Shuler, a well-known Philadelphia restauranteur, collected nearly $37,000 in government benefits, according to documents obtained by the NY Daily News.

Government officials alleged 44-year-old restaurant owner pretended to be disabled in order to collect the benefits, but she continued to operate her Country Cookin’ restaurant without reporting her additional income, according to the U.S. attorney for Eastern Pennsylvania.

“When asked about the quality of life, she said that she couldn’t... cook any meals and that her cousin cooked for her,” Deputy Chief of Health Care Fraud Beth Leahy told ABC. “In reality Ms. Shuler was running a food take-out business for Country Cookin’.”

Shuler is facing six counts of wire fraud, one count of theft of government funds, and two counts of Social Security fraud, according to The News.

She made headlines last year when she threw a $25,000 prom, dubbed “Dubai to Philly,” for her son, Johnny Eden Jr.

Shuler purchased custom Black Panther-themed outfits, rented exotic animals, trucked in tons of sand, and leased luxury vehicles for the evening, including a Rolls Royce and a Lamborghini.

Shuler wore a custom outfit (pictured above) inspired by Marvel's Black Panther movie and named herself "Queen" of Wakanda.

Her son said his prom party may have been over-the-top by Philly standards.

“At first I was like, it was too much, I don’t really like a lot of attention,” Johnny told CBS Philly at the time. “It was epic, man. I had my family out here. That’s all I really cared about is my family being out here. My mom did her thing, she was the real MVP."

Shuler told NBC10 she threw the lavish party to celebrate her good fortune after suffering personal family losses and poor health.

“I had a stroke. I had seizures. I had cancer. All within the last three years," Shuler told the station.

Months later, Shuler hosted a massive Christmas party for neighborhood children, which included hundreds of gifts and two live reindeer, according to NBC 10.

Leahy told ABC that there’s evidence Shuler has been defrauding the government since 2014.

If convicted, Shuler faces a maximum sentence of 140 years behind bars.

    cooning gone wrong....

  • MookieFly

    She gave the money back to community so don't even think she should be charged ????? better than spending it on meth and dog body wash like wypipo

  • RaginB

    Stroke,seizure and cancer???.....I hope she got health insurance while she doin all this frauding.

  • $255880266

    Doesn't work that way.

  • $255880266

    Why am I not surprised.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    So defrauding the government is OK as long as you use the money to give back to the community? :-|

  • MookieFly

    Obviously it doesn't, but if corporate fraud get nice comfy sentences and get exhumed of their charges, why cant she?

  • GAPeach

    She brought all this attention on herself. Big dummy.

  • MookieFly

    The govt is defrauded all the time and other races rarely receive harsh sentences. That's all I'm saying. If she used it for what was reported, then Im all for cutting my people some slack.

    She gave her baby boy a night to remember before she goes away... ugh now why is that dam song in my head "gonna make this a night to rememberrrrrrrr" smdh sigh

  • $255880266

    She's a liar, a thief and a criminal.

    "exhumed" LOFL for cryin' out loud. Look it up.

  • FukkFolks2018

    who in corporate fraud got a comfy sentence? Bernie Madoff got mad prison time and so did the Enron folks. I know for a fact Bernie got like 120 years tho. And last time I checked Butner is not a nice facility to be in.

  • Vegas1989

    I don't feel sorry for her. She know that she was doing wrong. Until someone followed her to the Country Kitchen and the PI's saw her loaded up a 5lb to go plate with them collards greens, 3 pieces of Fried Chicken, Mac and Cheese, sweet potatoes,Cornbread and a desert of your choice for $14.50 yeah they went back and told on her....LOL

  • FukkFolks2018

    It irritates the pure ass life out of me how big prom has gotten. I made it clear to that older one (23) and to the almost 14 yo...I will NOT be spending a fortune on no damn PROM.

    Why her son needed a "prom theme party" if he was going to the prom, which is actually a party anyway?

  • Kanyade

    anyone get emotional when you watch those best-of auditions for those singing reality shows. i'm a wreck at my desk.

    oh, on topic, welp, she got caught. good. that money should go to those who actually need it. not folks fakin' for extra end$.

  • MookieFly

    Bernie Madoff frauded almost 64 Billion. This woman took $37,000 and gave a presumed amount of it back to the community. They cannot be compared but our own community is ready to strike this woman down

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Her son had 6 outfit changes and 6 dates...it was excessive as hell and the talk of north philly...

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    I have no idea ... Because my niece sure had something like that ... I was like WTF is this ?... All I had was a couple of photos ... In front of the car and that's it... Went to prom and home. .. Chile now. .. Whole damn family be out there ... Chile we sent my niece off at my parents house... Chile it was lit in the front yard... Folks was pulling over and all.. Seeing her off. Playing music... . New day Chile... ??

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yup. And baby showers too.

    Just baffling to me.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Smh this is why I hate my city so much...this woman's restaurant has good food but she was just over the top with everything. Instead of doing it the right way its all about the scamming. All on IG flossin your shit when you live in a row home in north philly with a bunch of vultures hanging around. She could have moved and lived the right way but at every opportunity she would be bragging about her lifestyle.. turned me completely off when I first met her..Dia paid 25000.00 for her son's prom when I dont even think he went to college smh...its that ghetto shit that burns me up. People on my fb saying they support her and free Saudia...keep her ass locked up until she pays the money she owe the government (which was only like 36,000) she got it...foh...I cant stand birds who chirp for other birds...

  • Renee26

    Give her a white collar crime slap on the wrist... I watch American Greed all the time. They always get off with minimal time

  • SpillyNillie

    She should diffidently be punished...140 years is a bit stiff. However, the system is all the way flucked up. I know a few people personally who truly need disability benefits and resources and have been denied. But people who are actually scamming the system receive the benefits and resources that others so desperately need. The bigger question is how does this happen? How did Saudia receive these benefits under the pretense of being disabled but real disabled people are denied on the regular?

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Her neighborhood and her block...its all about what you have here...people will dress like a prince and be sleeping on a cot...instead of her giving that money to him for college she showed to grandstand...

    I agree with that he could have used that money to open ha business or pay for some college. SMH.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Truly damn are. A good friend of mine took out a small personal loan to send his daughter to prom. His ex wife told him how much his half was gonna be. he had just closed on a new home so he didnt have it. and didnt want to put it on his cc's. I was like say WHAT now? you doing what? *out of order fam..bangs it agane*

  • dru and neil

    I was just going to say the same thing. There’s a pretty sad theory behind black people treating proms and baby showers like weddings. We just don’t have enough actual weddings in our community so “this is the opportunity” to have a ceremony in a lot of folks minds. It’s pathetically sad.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Those stupid af to me too. we all went to the nice Japanese spot here dutch and told everyone we were having a girl 13 years ago lol. ex husband got everyone a round of sake. and him and the mens went to the bar area and had some shots. dats it.

  • Renee26

    She probably did suffer all of thosr health problems over 3 years....yet she recovered. They look at the medical records so there was probably something there that qualified her at some point.

    They have some good ones on Social Security fraud. Was just watching the one with the ex-Marine who lied about his PTSD, said he had to walk with a cane and here he is playing basketball and riding Magic Mountain... The gov't literally has jobs for people *specifically* to check on SS fraud.. don't try it, folks.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    She told on herself...her questionable cooking skills on IG prompted the health inspector to pay a visit a few times last year and this year...she was on social media living the lifestyle of a boss...she told on herself and if someone did call that was probably because her attitude was piss poor...we all know that once you reach a certain status you treat the doorman the same way you treat the boss...screw her and her unsanitized restaurant...

    She has the typical hoodrat mentality when it comes to money.
    Instead of using the money to buy an investment property or to move to a better neighborhood so her son could go to a better school she throws him a movie themed party.

    I hate people who cheat the government like this. I watch Judge Judy and it never fails that there is someone who is getting SSI and working. Judge asks them how do they support themselves and they say, SSI. And she asks what's your disability? PTSD or whatever. And the more they talk they admit that they're driving a school bus or fixing cars. And Judge lets them know that the taxpayer is paying for the SSI. That they're really not as disabled as they say.

  • Li-Wright

    That movie themed party is probably what brought the feds in.

She sent about 8 kids to the prom in luxury cars and had dancers, costumes and so forth. The 'Dubai '' themed party was for her son. I have been to her restaurant which is always a mess and she serves mediocre platters for damn near 20 dollars. She was show boating a little too much and one of her own turned her in.

  • WHYJESUSWHY

    I didn't like her food that much, I work in North Philly so we ordered some platters and I wasn't impressed. I have seen her house and you would think she would have invested the money in that instead of the money she spent on the ''Dubai'' nonsense. She had alot of groupies after that who hyped her up and she is now paying the price. A real boss moves in silence! I have no sympathy for her. Nope, not an ounce!

  • WHYJESUSWHY

  • hottlanta

    What u do BUD.

  • Jefferey Franklin

    Im' confused, if its her restaurant how is she not able to obtain the money from it? Regardless of who was cooking? The reason she was arrested seems fishy. If she has an operating business that she owns how did she qualify for disability in the first place?

    She did not get arrested for "fraud" she got arrested for not living like the peasant she was supposed to be........also she was stupid for putting her self on the radar like that not once but twice........

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Yup....when CC first opened I went to support...she had tshirts and prizes that first weekend but it was packed...I didn't like the way she talked to her employees at all like they wered beneath her and from what I remember she got mad because one of them didn't have on a heels or something...I was like this chick is too much they selling platters and all you care about is how high their heels are??? She was a mess...

  • WHYJESUSWHY

    My nephew knows her son and he said Saudia is over the top, not her son so much.

He told her this and she did it anyway. The parties are for her, not him.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    "If she has an operating business that she owns how did she qualify for disability in the first place?"

    Because she forget to put that information on her application when she applied for benefits. That's why it's called fraud.

  • Jefferey Franklin

    Per the article it doesn't appear that her owning the business was the concern, it was her cooking in said business and her indicating it was someone else cooking.

    “When asked about the quality of life, she said that she couldn’t… cook any meals and that her cousin cooked for her,” Deputy Chief of Health Care Fraud Beth Leahy told ABC. “In reality Ms. Shuler was running a food take-out business for Country Cookin’.”
    __________________
    Where's the lie? She can still "run a take-out" and not cook the food. Big Mama'nem would teach you how to cut a potato and pick some greens all while sitting at a chair in the kitchen, smoking a Newport and drinking a Pepsi with a lot of ice in a glass and not lift ONE finger.

    Government officials alleged 44-year-old restaurant owner pretended to be disabled in order to collect the benefits, but she continued to operate her Country Cookin’ restaurant without reporting her additional income, according to the U.S. attorney for Eastern Pennsylvania.

  • Yoni7

    This and thank you.

  • kre

    So this stupid lady is out here putting all this attention on herself and defrauding the government at the same time? What an idiot, she definitely didn't use he brain in these situations.

    “When asked about the quality of life, she said that she couldn’t… cook any meals and that her cousin cooked for her,”

    This is referring to her application for benefits. When asked about the quality of life -- meaning how she took care of herself, she said she couldn't cook for herself and that her cousin cooked for her. She did not mention a restaurant. The feds found out about the restaurant after the fact. That's why she was arrested.

  • Yoni7

    And then turn around and do it again.

  • Coy little wink

    I thought that restaurant rang a bell...think saw one of her platters on shaderoom IG..she has an IG page...how you claiming you can't cook but posting all these cooking videos and people eating your food...Chile...

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Dayuuum!

    The hood ones enjoy that flamboyant chit. What’s sad is she could’ve influenced the neighborhood in a more productive way!

  • justlooking

    This was not a thing in my household.

    Back in the day, we did own own medi and pedi

    Now they are making a production out of it. Hair, nails, toes, dress, after prom dress. hotel room, limo...Then folks have they own party...liqqa, ordering food. Hunty count me out...

  • Yoni7

    What gets me is that they give more time to prom than to graduation. IJS
    My daughter didn't even want to go to SR. prom. Somebody asked her and she ended up wearing THE SAME DRESS that she wore her Jr. year. She was focused on OTHER shit, like graduating and go to college. lbs

  • justlooking

    Yeah, my hubby ex tried that mess. Talking she coming in the house to help her daughter get dress. BISH HOLD UP....Not my house you not. It wasn't even her prom, she was invited. GIRL a hot mess.My nerves are starting to get irritated. I had my neighbor come over, in case we got to beefing...She was made because I wouldn't let her in. Bish you burn black candle don't come to my house trying to drop roots off. I digress...But yeah it's too much.

    She didn't report her extra income. So even if her cousin was doing ALL the cooking for the restaurant, because she was too disabled to do so, she still should've reported the income from it. But then THAT could've cut into the benefits she was receiving and she couldn't have that,

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    That's probably how the feds found out about her restaurant. You can't own a restaurant and apply for disability social security, unless you can show the restaurant is not profitable.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Thank you! You articulated this better than I did.

  • Tiff J

    LOL I was trying to tell if that was a watermark for the picture on her face. LOL

  • Tiff J

    Exactly. R.I.F

  • Yoni7

    So she had a restaurant restaurant, or was she cooking out of her house?

  • jason rite

  • hottlanta

  • grenadiadrian

    Why do dumbass criminals always feel the need to put a "bat signal" in the air to alert people of them doing dumb sh**? "I'm scamming the gov't for social security funds...I KNOW! I'LL THROW A HUGE LAVISH PARTY WITH MY ILL GOTTEN GAINS! THEY'LL NEVER THINK TO AUDIT ME!"

  • Whiplash(lacejagger)

    2,000.00?

  • McKay

    I'm not sure, if I read the comment here or elsewhere. Someone wrote howthe Jews do it all the time and get off with a warning. The courts should look at it as money loss for reparation ... ?

  • datjerk

    She should have spent some of that money on trips to the dermatologist frfr

  • R Smith

    I believe she applied for disability before she opened the restaurant. Once she became "famous", she never had the benefit cut off.

  • datjerk

    My mama gave me a hot $300 for my dress and shoes. We drove my dates parent's new 1995 Jetta. I thought I was doin big thangs.

  • datjerk

    That's alllll i want to know.

  • Soon2BWife

    I wonder if he had/has a Wakanda type college fund? ??

  • Soon2BWife
  • Rmicu

    SS disability takes at least 2 years to get after the first application is submitted, this is IF they approve you. If you file an appeal to get SS disability that adds another 2-3 years before you start getting money.....so if she started getting SSD in 2014, that means she was probably disabled when she applied.

    By the time she started getting money, in 2014, the restaurant was probably up and running—but the money was based on original information in application..

    My sorority is an attorney, she does appeals for those denied SSD .

  • Nik

    A lot of idiocy in this.
    1) How does the theme "Dubai to Philly" get Black Panther themed? Though Wakanda isn't a real place, how did it fit in this theme?
    2) Trucking in sand? SMH
    3) You KNOW you're defrauding the government, but you still go about doing some over-the-top foolishness?!

    Come on Man!
