Terrell Owens --

I Can't Afford My Child Support Payments

10/31/2011 4:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Terrell Owens Fedora
Times are tough for Terrell Owens -- so much so the currently former NFL star is asking a judge to lower his child support payments ... TMZ has learned.

Owens, who is currently not an NFL roster, wants to reduce the payments he's making for a son he shares with baby mama Monique Reynolds ... because, according to his rep, he's simply not getting paid these days.

The rep says Owens wants to make the payments a little more reasonable, adding, "His child support payments should mirror his income today and not be based on his income from over four years ago."

Owens was due in court in Northern California for a child support modification hearing on October 24, but didn't show up. His rep says his lawyers tried to reschedule, but lawyers for Reynolds refused.

T.O.'s audition for prospective NFL teams -- the one nobody showed up to -- was the next day.

the child support should be lowered. bottom line, his income is not what is used to be, so the child support should reflect that. But he also shouldn't be supporting so many grown people back home, either. They need to get jobs!

Dude you don't even know how shady women are these days.. I know a dude who had some girl he smashed take the condom out of the trash while he was sleeping and knock herself up with it. He now pays like $1000 a month to her and the state doesn't really care.

And look at rappers like Nas who have to pay $55,000 a month in child support.. what little kid needs $55k a month? Shady ho's are just hustling the system.

Man you people are retarded, you have no idea how trifling ho's are these days. One of my friends had this girl take a condom out of the trash while he was sleeping and knock herself up so she'd get monthly payments and the state doesn't even care.
