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."

When the lights go out and the checks stop coming and the bling payments are overdue these people hit the ropes like nobody's business. WTF? Ever heard of life planning? It's like 99% These guys crash and burn like soviet made rockets and then they owe like a baseball team's worth of baby momma payments too, it's unreal..

T.O is not in a good situation right now. I'm not buying his sleeping pill story, and it's clear that the guy needs help. He needs financial planning help, some counseling, and a lot of support from his family and friends. He probably blew up his money, and doesn't know what to do now that he doesn't have a job. No matter his situation, though, he has to set up an account on eBay and start selling all his fancy possessions. His obligations to the child are first, and he must meet them, whether he wants it or not.

The only time I thought Owens was cool was when he ran out to the Dallas Cowboys' star in the middle of their field after making a touchdown and raised his arms in glory! Now THAT was awesome!

If it's IMPORTANT he will be there. If It's not important to him, he won't, and will make excuses later. Stupid man!

I'm appalled by the horrificly racist comments here. Newsflash: When they set TO's monthly child payments, he was earning $5 Million/year. Now he earns nothing. Let's be real here folks -- or is it that difficult to simply see past the color of this man's skin?
