Terrell Owens

I Was NOT Trying to Kill Myself

10/27/2011 5:22 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Terrell Owens
Terrell Owens claims his assistant was WRONG when she told a 911 operator that he tried to commit suicide on Oct. 6 ... this according to a statement from his publicist.

T.O.'s rep, Diana Bianchini, tells TMZ ..."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."

@Diana Bianchini


Wonder how many meetings it took before it came to calling it a "sleeping aid" instead of a "sleeping PILL."

disgusted. disgusting. put the this **** to sleep. in the year 2011, slapping people is unacceptable. it is evern more unacceoptable this this **** considered his behavior (WORDS AND SLAPPING IN THE FACE) a rational response to something on the level of an irritation.

oh so it is normal to slap people who irritate you and cut lines? how weak minded does a person have to be to actually allow themself to resort to smacking a stranger in the face because some event didn't occur at a more convenient time? how inane and pathetically limited does a brain have to be to actually slap a fans face because they didn't adhere to some non-expressed rules for taking pictures with a f-list celebrity? absolutely REEEEE TARDED. **** that guy. i want to slap his dumb **** old face right back but i won't because he probably has annoying security so i will just ramble on and on until i bore myself. **** that old prick. he should be drowned in a tank of jello.
