Terrell Owens Asks Judge To Lower Child Support Payments

Rucuss staffOctober 31, 2011

Terrell Owens isn’t making money like he used to.

Owens documented his money woes on this season’s “The T.O. Show.” He revealed his credit score was a 570 due to alleged money management abuse by an accountant. But many assumed he’s rebounded some since the show taped a few months in advance. He receives a pay check for starring on the show.

But it looks like that’s not the case. The former NFL player asked a judge to lower his child support payments, TMZ reports. Owens, who is currently out of a job, wants his payment reduced for a son he shares with Monique Reynolds.

TMZ reports:

The rep says Owens wants to make the payments a little more reasonable, adding, “His child support payments should mirror his income today and not be based on his income from over four years ago.”

Owens was due in court in Northern California for a child support modification hearing on October 24, but didn’t show up. His rep says his lawyers tried to reschedule, but lawyers for Reynolds refused.

T.O.’s audition for prospective NFL teams — the one nobody showed up to — was the next day.

Earlier this month, Owens was rushed to a hospital by ambulance for a possible prescription pill overdose on Oct. 6. Police were called to the scene to investigate and spoke with Owens at the hospital.

Audio from the 911 call was released. His assistant does not say Owens’ name but you can hear her speak to Kita Williams, who is one of Owens’ publicists, while she searches for the bottle of pills to inform the operator what Owens took.

During the call, placed at 11:02 PM, the dispatcher asks the assistant on the phone, “Was this a suicide attempt?” — and she responds, “Yes, I believe so.”

While she was on the phone with the dispatcher, the woman claims T.O. was “talking to his girlfriend, ex-girlfriend … [I]don’t really know what you wanna call it.”

Owens is still hopeful that an NFL team will pick him up this season.
