Judge upset as Terrell Owens misses child support hearing

Terrell Owens is once again in hot water over failing to meet his child support obligations.

Owens, the former NFL wide receiver who has repeatedly been accused by the mothers of his children of failing to make required support payments, did not attend a hearing in one of his child support cases today, and Judge John Goger was upset about that, according to WSB TV in Atlanta.

Owens’ attorney, David Hartin, took the blame for Owens’ failure to appear, saying he didn’t communicate well with his client. Owens could face jail time if he doesn’t show up for another hearing set for a week from today.

Today’s court action was brought by Melanie Smith, the mother of Owens’ 7-year-old daughter, who says he has violated his agreement to pay her $5,000 a month in child support and has not made any payments in four months.

In an appearance with the mothers of his children on Dr. Phil this year, Owens said he squandered $80 million. In a subsequent interview Owens said he didn’t really lose that much money, and he’s not broke.

    $5K a month? That’s a solid college graduate entry level salary there.

    What?! The judge told me to pay the child support I owe and I did. I didn’t know I had to keep doing it.

    I don’t understand how pro athletes:
    A. Get busted for drunk driving.
    B. Have so many illegitimate children.

    These two things seem to be the easiest to keep under control yet time and time again these guys keep being reckless.

    I know it might be feel better to ride without a seatbelt but consider the risks gentlemen.

    People may detest T.O. for this reason or that reason, but some baby mama demanding $5,000.00 per month (after taxes) to support one 7 year old child is insane.

    This is not my position because of who the father is. I don’t care about that. This is just my stance on its own merit. $60,000.00 per year after taxes is like earning $100,000.00 – and this baby mama wants all that just to support one kid???

    Not on my watch – good thing for her too.

    Can someone please castrate that douche bag and all the other scum who can’t wrap their reproductive organ. There’s enough fatherless children in this country.

    T.O. a scum on the football field, and a scum off of the field? Who Knew? (LOL)

    Child support is a joke. All child support should go into a trust anyway, it’s for the kid

    It really is a massive problem, but it’s primarily a cultural problem that nobody wants to deal with.

    Really? He gets another week to show? Wow! In my backwoods county, if you don’t show for a Contempt hearing for child support, a bench warrant is issued for your arrest right there! Must be good to be a celebrity!
