Terrell Owens has caught more than 1000 passes, he’s ran for more than 15,000 yards and has scored more than 150 touchdowns. He’s also fathered four children with four different women. The NFL star appeared on Dr. Phil today to face accusations from three of those women about his refusal to pay child support.
The NFL Network reports that Owens has made more than $80 million over his 11-year career, but the three women say that they haven’t seen much of that money.
Kimber, the first woman introduced by Dr. Phil, said that Owens has only seen their daughter a dozen times. Owens admitted that he has not seen the 7-year-old girl in over a year but said that it wasn’t entirely his fault. Owens said:
“The thing is, with me traveling back and forth, I don’t have a set schedule…. Pretty much 90% of the time every time I’ve reached out it’s been a bad time.”
The second woman, identified as Melanie, also said that Owens has been an absentee father. The third woman said that Owens has made a few public appearances with their son, but said that he only did so to bolster his image.
Monique said: “He was trying to exploit his kid.”
Owens, however, said that he’s not the one exploiting the kids. According to the NFL player, the women only contact Owens when they need money.
USA Today reports that Owens is currently trying to have his child support payments reduced. Ownes said that he currently has to make monthly payments of $20,000, $13,400, $11,200 and $5,000.
