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.

TO is an idiot for not wrapping it up but good lord! These baby mamas make more in a year off child support than most of us hard working Americans. The amount men pay for child support is an absolute joke in America

DAMN!! At least 4 kids with 4 different women, making no money, bad combo. Women don't play around with them child support checks. They want that check ON TIME or they'll turn your a** in ASAP. The BS is most of the money isn't even used to support the child.

Wow, that's over half a mil in child support each year. I hope these kids are well looked after, they'd want to be going to the best schools in the US.
I'd be asking for a reduction in all of them. How do you spend $240,000 a year raising a child? That's over $60...0 a day, 7 days a week.

Not being American I had never heard of this guy except in the gossip columns. So I checked him out online.

Here we have a 'professional' football player who has made at least 50 million in the last 15 years, and that would only be his actual contractual fee without extras, promotion, etcetera.

In the meantime he fathered 4 kids because apparently he is too stupid to know what a condom looks like, and now he is saying he is in financial difficulty and cannot pay his child support anymore.

Am I right in assuming that this guy is an incredibly stupid *******?

TO. You need to get a vasectomy. LOL. The reason you are heading for a financial crisis was because you think with your small head. These women get themselves knock up willingly because they want those outrageous monthly child support. 20 k a mth. Some normal working Americans don't even make that much yearly. By the time all your kids turn 18, you will be a broke A$$ man. Mark my words.

The whole Child Support laws in the USA is utter nonsense and designed to destroy families . Change the laws now and offer a flat Child Support payment BASED on the needs of the child say between $100 - $1,000 per Month and you will immediately see a drop in Children fathered out of wedlock This will also help to keep married people, married. It is simply Ridiculous and insane to grant $20,000/month to anyone for having a baby. The very foundation of the USA Society is threatened by these punitive and draconian laws.
