Fresh Off New Contract, Terrell Owens’ Baby Mamas Line Up for their Cut
It doesn’t take long for the financial vultures to start pouring in after you sign an NFL contract. Terrell Owens is now being told to pay up on back child support after signing a new deal with the Seattle Seahawks. One of the mothers of his children has been fighting back against TO’s request for reduced child support after his substantial decline in income.
Owens owes money to four different women, and was hurting for cash for a while. Now that he’s signed a deal with the Seahawks reportedly worth $1 million, the mothers are lining up for their share of the dough.
One of the women, Melanie Paige Smith, has filed court papers asking the judge to dismiss Owen’s request for a reduction.
Randall Kessler, Melanie’s attorney says, “It is clear that a downward modification of [T.O.'s] child support obligation is not warranted.”
According to Melanie, T.O. received $7,000,000 playing for the Cowboys in 2007, signed a $13,000,000 contract with the Cowboys in 2008, signed a $6,500,000 with the Buffalo Bills in 2009, and signed a $2,000,000 deal with the Bengals in 2010.
Funny how certain baby’s mothers can precisely calculate exactly how much money you have. Maybe Terrell should pick a better class of women.
