Terrell Owens

BENCH WARRANT ISSUED

11/4/2011 1:38 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Terrell Owens
Terrell Owens is a wanted man -- TMZ has learned a California judge has issued a warrant for his arrest for failing to appear at a hearing regarding past-due child support.

Court sources confirm ... the warrant was issued on Nov. 1 after T.O. was a no-show in family court ... where Monique Reynolds was trying to force the football star to finally cough up thousands of dollars in unpaid child support.

Owens -- who's gone public about his dire financial situation -- had previously petitioned the court to lower his payments to Monique ... but the judge denied his request because he was M.I.A. during the court hearing.

T.O.'s rep tells us ... the football star tried to reschedule the court date when he knew he wouldn't be able to make it ... but Monique refused to budge.

The rep also insists, "The warrant is currently being taken care of."

He needs a job, he's still a viable player, but no teams are budging. That sucks to go from financial stability to being broke (didn't someone swindle a lot of his money behind his back?). Hope he lands on his feet and can catch up on these child support payments quickly. He really may need the payments lowered till he gets a job and then the courts can raise them back up again.

Why wouldn't he be able to make it? Isn't he jobless? This was a very important hearing for him. I'm shocked he would miss the chance to get his payments lowered.

The guy is SUCH a loser. Maybe he should think about learning to be a man.

Sell one of your cars. Get rid of a crib. Pawn some bling. Take some cash out of the bank.
In other words BE A MAN, not the petulant child you've been for the last 20 or so years.

as I was sayin    

Not everyone gets the Lindsay Treatment. The special treatment. So, he needs to handle his business, and pay his child support, if football is not working then he could write a book, or something. He does have an interesting life and enough people will buy his book to pay his child support.
