Skip money. A mind is a terrible thing to waste.
Word on the street is that not only does Terrell Owens have a slew of baby mother drama on his plate, but the wide receiver tells GQ that he is going broke. Not just any ‘ol broke, we’re talking damn near $80 million. The running line of the piece is that if you asked where T.O. was a few months ago, especially since he hasn’t touched a football during this NFL season because no team will take him, his answer in text form would be, “I’M IN HELL.” It’s no secret that Owens is known in the NFL for his crappy attitude and sometimes his dismissal of authority, and while he has had his golden years in the league, it seems that reputation is coming back to haunt the brother. After tearing his ACL and spending the 2011 NFL season doing rehabilitation for it, no teams made an effort to bring him on. Who knew a temper could trump true talent?
Since he’s been on the sidelines, or in the house (let’s keep it real), he hasn’t made the money he’s used to. And on top of that, the mothers of his four children have been coming after him during this tough period, asking him to contribute more than what he claims to have in child support. The drama behind it has blown up so big that he doesn’t even get to see his youngest child thanks to beef with the mother of the child–a son. This is what it says in the article:
“…he pays a total of $44,600 a month in child support for his four children, ages 5 to 12: “If there’s anything I’m sorry about, it’s getting involved with all that.” He never actually dated any of the women, he says. One was a one-night stand, the others “repeat offenders.” Owens, who has never been married, concedes he is “not a very good judge of character.” Still, he “never suspected they were the types to do what they done in the past year.”
Also in the article, it’s revealed just how truly bad a judge of character Owens is by the business ventures he let himself get involved in through the urging of his associates and financial advisers. From a number of random homes to an Alabama entertainment complex that fell ALL the way through, his investments wound up costing him millions. “I hate myself for letting this happen,” he says. “I believed that they had my back when they said, ‘You take care of the football, and we’ll do the rest.’ And in the end, they just basically stole from me.”
