Owens: I Never Tried to Kill Myself

9/27/2006 5:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Terrell Owens says he did not attempt suicide and any notion he swallowed 35 pain pills is absurd.

Owens was taken to a hospital Tuesday night after his publicist, Kim Etheredge, called 911 and reported what she believed to be a suicide attempt. Etheredge, who also spoke at the news conference, says the police were wrong when they said she told them Owens was depressed.

Etheredge says she became alarmed when Owens seemed unresponsive, but insists it was not a suicide attempt.

Owens says he's ok now and wants to suit up and play in Sunday's game. Owens denies that he was feeling depressed and also thanked his friends and fans for their support.

I find it funny, Terell says he passed out on a table while a doctor was tending to his hand, his publicist says he passed out during dinner. I smell a cover up.

I'm with you Kate. This story stinks. This always happens with stars. I guess that's why they pay their publicist the big money. To clean up the crap after they make a mess of things.

Being a huge Eagle's Fan I don't care much for TO but after hearing this I started to feel sorry for him. Now I'm thinking what a joke, it was probably a publicity stunt and so Im back to not liking him :P

You know,..sh*t happens..... thing like that happen sometimes,...On many occaisions have I drank out of the clorox bottle instead of the glass of tea on accident. Okay,..I am kidding..... I am a TO supporter, yeah he's a drama mama, but hes a damn good player. The only thing that bothers me about him is how he addresses the cowboys as "this team" instead of "we/us".
And yeah he's got big money to throw if it is a cover up,..but in his defense, he's worked for it and backed up his playing skills.

Get'cha popcorn ready, cause its gonna be a show................(reminder, keep the mothballs and supplements in a seperate drawer)
