Terrell Owens has been issued an arrest warrant by the State of California for failing to appear in court due to delinquent child support. T.O. reps says he tried rescheduling the court date, but his baby mama attorney’s were unwilling to compromise. Just days ago Terrell tried to get his child support payments lowered as reported by TMZ.
It’s hard to feel sympathy for a millionaire who put themselves in their own financial woes. First off, I am certain T.O. is not broke. The meaning of broke to us common folk means “no money at all”. The third season of his reality show just finished airing for goodness sake’s. Second, he played in the NFL long enough to have a healthy nest egg and solid investments.
I understand wanting to reduce his $50K a month child support payments since he is no longer signed to an NFL team and not making the kind of money to afford such outrageous payments anymore, but he must get the courts on his side and can’t just neglect his payments on the whim or when he feel like it. He’s not above the law and must go through the same process everyone must go through to get payments reduced. He has a team of lawyers who can make that happen.
If he doesn’t want his baby mama, Monique Reynolds, digging in his pockets then he should’ve never had a child with her. It’s really that simple. Poor life decisions come with consequences. Like most of us he’s made his fair share of poor life decisions and must now face them head on responsibly, not crying about it.
I’m sure T.O. has over extended himself with debt like a lot of people which is a contributing factor to his financial crisis. He also had a financial manager who supposedly stole millions from him. Though, when it comes down to it all, he has no one to blame, but himself.
It’s probably all a publicity stunt which will lead up to his season 4 of the T.O. Show. Anyway, how do you feel about this Terrell Owens drama? Am I being too harsh on the guy? Let me hear your thoughts. Leave a comment below.
