Terrell Owens Faces Off With His Kids’ Mothers On Dr. Phil [Video]
Rucuss staffMay 9, 2012
Former NFL wide receiver Terrell Owens tried to hash out his differences with three of his kids’ mothers on the Dr. Phil show.
Owens sat down with Dr. Phil and talked about being an absentee father, his late child-support payments and his childhood. Dr. Phil took it easy on Owens at the beginning of the interview, pointing out he’s a big fan and that critics have been too hard on him.
Then Dr. Phil read an introduction Owens wrote for a children’s book, which began: “To my children, may my life serve as an example to you.” He introduced Owens first child’s mother, Kimber. The woman said he has seen their seven year old daughter only about 12 times.
“He doesn’t call, he doesn’t send Christmas gifts,” Kimber said.
Owens was asked if it was true that a year had passed since he last saw her, and he said he wasn’t sure how long it had been.
“The thing is, with me traveling back and forth, I don’t have a set schedule,” Owens said. “Pretty much 90% of the time every time I’ve reached out it’s been a bad time.”
Melanie, who is the second oldest child’s mother, said she can’t ever get in touch with Owens. It’s been about a year since he has seen their daughter. Owens alleges that the last planned visit with his daughter didn’t come off because Melanie insisted that he pay for her plane ticket, in addition to his daughter’s.
The third child’s mother said her pregnancy wasn’t planned. Dr. Phil expressed his shock that all three women didn’t take better precautions. When he asked Owens about the pregnancies, he said, “No, it wasn’t a plan. I was irresponsible in that regard.”
Owens said he had four children with four different women.
