Terrell Owens has made tens of millions of dollars in his NFL career, but he currently stands accused of withholding money that he owes for the care of one of his children.
The Associated Press reports that the mother of one of Owens’ children says he has refused to pay the full $5,000 a month in child support he owes.
According to the mother, Melanie Paige Smith, Owens’ financial advisers told her Owens decided to no longer pay the full amount. Owens’ agent, Drew Rosenhaus, did not return messages seeking comment from the Associated Press.
There have been conflicting media reports about how many children Owens has. Owens said in an interview last year that he has a three-year-old son whom he’s never met because of hard feelings between himself and the boy’s mother. It is not clear whether that mother is the mother seeking child support in this case.
