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."

He has bad choices in managers and assistants. Terrell you need to surround yourself with professional people. You are an awesome person, I do not think the world needs to know your personal life. Stay Strong!

Sorry...why is this posted as if it's a quote from Terrell Owens, when Owens himself has said nothing on the matter?

Gotta love the excellent TMZ journalism.

I also love the whackjobs in the comments section here...one claiming he has "high contacts" in the league. Yeah, that's why you're here, commenting on a TMZ article...and writing "God bless." Sounds really professional and like the kind of person who would have "high contacts" in the league.

Then you have the poor, pathetic, ironic doofuses who try to LECTURE Owens, as if he's reading your idiotic, poorly punctuated, childish (look at me use EXCLAMATION MARKS!!!!!!!!!) comment. Terrell Owens is rehabilitating his knee so he can resume his professional football career. You know, that thing he does that he is an all-time great in. That thing he does that he has actually transcended and become a global celebrity, even if it may be largely infamy?

I don't think he'd trade his life for yours. Just a hunch.

That's Some Ole BULL**** ...The Assistant and we know which one in specifics it was as she is heard talking to yet the other one from show KITA on the Phone was right on the nail with her call to say he was attempting a suicide! Also the fact that she refers to the ex gf or gf well not knowing really what to call her is an expression that he has been having some self loathing issues ! Remember admission is the first step to recovery so in this case we can expect there will be yet another attempt this being the second ! and him still in denial !

Owens says he'll play football again? I don't think his big ego will let him.

Keep lying...and having those who "work for you" lie too. Here's some personal advice...if you stop being such an arrogant pig maybe your girlfriend, or ex, or whatever she is, would stay around.

If he really wanted to kill himself he could easily. Get off his nuts people. It's like you all want him to kill himself, kinda sick. Do you really think he wanted this kind of publicity when he's trying to get back into the NFL?? Don't be stupid.

Has there ever actually been a "Celebrity" or the "Celebrity's Rep" that has admitted that the person was trying to kill themselves?

Read the bible or another good book maybe that will help you in going to sleep. Pray to God for peace, instead of utilizing some over the counter or even a prescribed medicine for sleep. Especially since we hearing about the things that happened to Michael Jackson and using sleep aids and being non-responsive. Pray !!!
