An arrest warrant was issued last Tuesday (Nov 1) for former Dallas Cowboys player Terrell Owens after the troubled NFL star failed to show up for a child support hearing last month.
Owens had previously petitioned the court to lower his payments to his baby mama Monique Reynolds, but the judge denied his request because he didn’t show up to the court hearing.
Owens also tried to reschedule the October 24th hearing so that he could attend an NFL workout to help secure a new contract, but Monique refused to compromise.
T.O.’s spokeswoman Diana Bianchini said that he is “deeply upset that anyone would misconstrue his nonappearance in court,” and “The warrant is currently being taken care of.”
Owens is currently nursing a knee injury following surgery and has also been very open about his recent financial woes. He’s not on any NFL roster at the moment, which means that he has no income.
Despite that, T.O. is currently required to support his four children based on his 2007 income of $11 million to $12 million when he was playing for the Dallas Cowboys, something he is trying to get modified to reflect his current situation
The wide receiver, who has played for the San Francisco 49ers, Philadelphia Eagles, Buffalo Bills and the Cincinnati Bengals, is in “serious financial shape” but is trying his best to resolve the issue, his spokeswoman said.
