Report: Warrant issued for Terrell Owens

If Terrell Owens’ biggest problem was the fact he couldn’t find a job, life would be grand. But now he’s got bigger problems than his unemployment.

As TMZ reports, a California judge has issued an arrest warrant for Owens after he failed to show up for a child support hearing.

We told you a few days ago that Owens had asked to reduce his child support payments, because he’s not making as much money today as he was before. Therefore, he can’t pay as much in child support. Or none at all, as Monique Reynolds, who is taking Owens to court for back payments, claims in court.

TO's Problems
Owens apparently knew he was not going to show up for his court appearance -- it was right around the time of his workout in which zero NFL teams showed up to watch -- and he apparently tried to reschedule, but Reynolds’ representation refused.

And if Owens thought he could catch on with an NFL team in order to earn some money, Bengals safety Chris Crocker, Owens’ former teammate, said he can understand why nobody seems interested.

“When we talk about how perception is reality, the perception around the league is that he’s a bad locker room guy and a bad teammate,” Crocker said in this week’s Five Questions (or more). “Organizations don’t want to bring that dynamic in the locker room, especially with him 37 or 38 years old. I just don’t think people are willing to do it. I’m not saying he’s a bad teammate, but he was called one when he was in San Fran, in Philly, in Dallas. It’s like a circus. Teams just don’t want to go that route. You bring him in, and you bring in all the stuff that goes with it.”

Hopefully, “all that stuff” doesn’t include becoming a deadbeat dad.

Report: Warrant issued for Terrell Owens

As TMZ reports, a California judge has issued an arrest warrant . . .
As who reports?  Is this the same source that reported he tried to kill himself a few weeks ago?

Report: Warrant issued for Terrell Owens

Call it racial if you want, EVERYONE reading this knows that Terell Owens is the caricature of a black male...All about him, not the team, teamates hate him, made millions, but can't pay a stipend to one of his (probably) numerous children?  Sorry gents, just the truth...
So I guess you have court documents on what he has or has not paid? Please share with the rest of us. I will never stick up for Owens as a team player however, without knowing him personally I will never put him down for what he might or might not provide for his child or how ignorantly you put it as possible numerous children... This is just bad jouranlism.

Tough call who's to blame....

...TO should host a reality TV show with a bunch of idiot dudes all competing to be the "big brother" to the kids he won't/can't write checks for. With that in mind, though, let's get real about what he's probably paying per month and what the slut that got "accidentally" pregnant to set him up to keep her in Gucci and Benz's for the next 18 years of HER life. My bet is that it has less to do with keeping his kids fed and clothed and more to do with her standard of living that probably includes childcare 5 nights a week while she's out nightclubbing trying to get knocked up by her next victim to drunk and horny to use a condom. Oh what the heck. I'm not a TO fan either. We should make him marry that Kardashian cow.

Yes Toxic, we all feel so bad for him because he needed to be employed in order to pay his child support.  Please hang yourself for adding such an insightful comment...

Report: Warrant issued for Terrell Owens

I'm white and I absoultey hate the race card because, frankly we have a black President. Did anybody stop to consider that he missed the court apperance in order to find a NFL team(to employ him) so he would be able to take better care of his child? Yes I am white and a Republican..
