Owens PR rep: He did NOT try to commit suicide

Earlier today, we brought you the story of Terrell Owens and the 911 call that emerged from the night his assistant told a dispatcher that she believed he had tried to commit suicide.

Now, Owens -- make that Owens’ PR rep -- has spoken out. He was not trying to kill himself. Instead, he had taken a sleeping pill and was unresponsive as a result.

Owens’ assistant on the night of Oct. 6 called emergency services and said Owens had taken four prescription pain pills. When the operator asked if Owens was awake, the caller said, “Barely … we talk to him and he understands what we're saying."

When the dispatcher asked if it was a suicide attempt, she said, “Yes, I believe so."

But Owens’ PR rep said that wasn’t the case.

Diana Bianchini told TMZ the following: “Terrell Owens absolutely did not attempt suicide nor did he attempt to overdose on pills on Oct. 6, 2011.

"The facts are that [T.O.'s assistant] arrived at his home that evening after he had already taken a sleeping aid to fall asleep. He was unresponsive because of this.

"Unaware he had taken a sleeping aid prior to her arrival, his assistant became concerned and decided to call 911.

"When the ambulance and police arrived, Owens was responsive and was not held in the hospital. Reports released with the 911 call today are misleading and not factual."

T.O. is very charismatic, a TV gig would suit him well I think.


As opposed to the 2-3 cancelled reality shows that he has had... you may not know about them since only about 127 people actually watched!

I just heard is promoter from the TO show on the radio (TJMS) and they suck at explaining what happened, they truely did sound like Bill Clinton when he was asked if he had sex with lewinsky... People ought to realize that if you are in the busines of managing and promoting someone to go to speach class and learn how to think on your feet.  But this question did not deserve thinking on their feet they should have already had something prepared in response to the question. and then tell the DJ to move on to the next question.

Learn how to take charge of the interview... stupid ass women......

You can't kill yourself by taking just 4 pain pills and a sleeping pill.

Owens PR rep: He did NOT try to commit suicide

Excuse me, but did they just accidentally reprint this story from three or four years ago?  At that time (while he was with Dallas) also a story came out that he'd tried to kill himself (with pills, I think), followed up with one that it was just an accident.

If this really was a separate incident, I can't believe that neither the story nor any of the posters mentioned it, unless I missed something.
