Terrell Owens

Child Support Documents

Reveal Financial Ruin

11/7/2011 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Terrell Owens' financial situation is so dire, he filed papers in three separate child support cases to have his payments lowered ... because he makes ZERO DOLLARS ... this according to court docs obtained by TMZ.

As TMZ first reported, a bench warrant was issued for T.O.'s arrest after he missed a court date with one baby mama ... to whom he's trying to lower child support payments.

Turns out ... T.O. has three OTHER baby mamas and over the past few months he's filed to have his payments reduced with two of them (and, according to his rep, he plans to file for a modification of support for the third).

For those of you counting at home, here's the scorecard ...

Baby Mama #1, Monique Reynolds
T.O. and Monique have an 11-year-old son together. According to the papers, he paid $20,000/month in support until last year, when it was reduced to $11,202. He also gave her $100,000 to buy a house.

Baby Mama #2, Kimberly Floyd
They share a 7-year-old daughter, for whom TO was ordered to pay $20,000/month for back in 2005. In 2008, they agreed to drop that to $15,000.

Baby Mama #3, Samelia Miller
Miller gave birth to a son back in 2006. He was ordered to pay $13,400/month in support.

Baby Mama #4, Melanie Paige Smith
T.O. was ordered to pay $5,000/month for their daughter back in 2007. This is the only case where T.O. has not yet requested a reduction ... though his rep says he plans to ask for a modification.

In each of the cases where T.O. is requesting a reduction in child support payments, he says in his declaration, "My currently monthly income is zero ($0)."

In the papers, T.O. also claims to pay $62,366/month for various properties and says his home in Georgia is in foreclosure. He says he put all but two of his homes up for sale.

A rep for T.O. tells TMZ, "He has tried to keep paying all of these mothers what they were used to year after year, basically putting himself into a financial crisis. He has always paid his child support payments and loves his kids."

The rep says each modification case is still ongoing.

This is gonna be Mayweather when he's washed up. All these athletes/actors/musicians who spend absolutely every dime they make on bling, Bentley's, and baby mamas. Makin it rain up in the club today, sleeping in the rain outside the club 5 years later.They are no different than those idiots who win 200 mill in the lottery and lose it all in a couple of years.

IMO, parents that have extraordinarily high child support obligations should require that all funds over $XXXX should be placed in a trust for the child. This would prevent the custodial parent from living (above their own ability) off the child support funds. The trust funds would be available for education costs and necessary purchases (vehicle, apartment, etc.) as the child grows up. The balance to be turned over at age 21. This would solve many issues that now plague the large child support awards. No one but the child benefits from having a rich, successful sperm donor, I mean, daddy.

Terrell, please shut up.

YOu earned tens of millions of dollars.

All your properties should have already been paid off. Rich people who choose mortgages do so to invest, but you clearly didn't invest, so you should have paid off the properties.

And you should have already planned your kids financial future. Where was your money going to come from? With your age being 37 and so near retirement, are you really still living football season to football season.

That is so dumb and lacking in foresight and common sense that I don't know what to say.

That's why fans are leaving your show:http://realityrants.com/viewers-tune-out-terrell-owens/

People always assume things they don't know. how do ya'll know the guy didn't use a condom? When I conceived my 2 daughters a condom was used! And whether he can afford it or not he shouldn't be paying his baby mothers that much.

I don't feel the least bit sorry for TO for being a dumbass and banging all those women without protection. That being said, **** that, it seems like a good deal for those women, spread your legs and pop out a kid and you got yourself $20k a month for 18 years? not to mention houses and whatever else. Nice "investment."

And the sad truth is, a lot of good parents raise four kids on barely a fraction of what even ONE of these baby mamas get, let alone all four combined. And the "poor" four kids usually turn out better adjusted mentally, emotionally, and intellectually. They go to better colleges and lead much better NORMAL lives than these kids getting 20-grand a month. That's because most of that 20-grand is spent keeping the baby mama's hair, nails, toes, and face "did". Can't forget the "fat" new Louis purse and those "off the chain" Louboutins. Factor in some club nights out with the ladies, head shots to audition for Basketball Wives, and a ridiculously expensive car, and the shorties who made mama's lottery win possible barely see a penny of their "support" money under usual cir****tances. But they get to know grandmom or auntie very well, because that's where they spend 99% of their time while mama parties, shops, or films her role in "whatever" wives. If courts REALLY want to help these kids, they shouild appoint trustees to make sure these mega bucks get spent on the kids, not the mamas or their new gold-toof filled mouth boyfriends.

Four children by four different women. This guy is despicable.

Are we to accept that none of these 4 women is worthy of being his wife?
Has he fallen in love with any of them?
At least if he married one, he wouldn't have to worry about keeping a roof over his head, and any child support would be a matter of his discretion, not the court's.
Seriously, here's a man who had millions, and presumably access to good lawyers.
Say "I do" to one of these women and commit yourself to staying married and being faithful to THAT partner alone.

One month of child support could have bought him a lifetime supply of condoms. WHEN will these fools learn?!?!?!?

"IMO, parents that have extraordinarily high child support obligations"

Extraordinarily high? What are you talking about? He paid less than 1% of his income in child support as do all rich people. Average Joe's pay a much bigger percentage of their income. Educate yourself.

Man, these women are some gold diggin hoes! Over $10k a month for child support? More like adult support. I bet these women don't even work, why would they, they have a 6 figure salary coming in without it. I guess she needs extra cheese on her whopper! Hell, even $5k a month is silliness!

This guy is developmentally delayed. Of course those chicks wanted him to poke them so they could get locked up and cash in. But this idiot is too stupid to see that. His fat ego was all about, "I'm the MAN, the chicks dig me". Mr. All That and Nothing. He needed this reality check, because he's too slow and stupid to have grasp you just can't just sire kids. The even if you're too ghetto to know what beign a father is, you still have to pay. This is not the hood. Those kids aren't going to go to the welfare office and claim they were raped and don't know who the father is, and lay back for the rest of their lives collecting benefits.

In the non-ghetto, real world---YOU PAY. I'd recommend that he'd get fixed but I know he'd think that he would be robbed of his versatility---as if being a MAN is just about ejaculating. A 14yo can do that. [think that's where his mentality got stuck]
