T.O.

I Tweet to Pay My Bills!

11/26/2011 6:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Terrell Owens
T.O. filed legal docs in one of his child support cases, claiming he doesn't have nearly enough jack to pay his baby mama's attorney's fees, but in making his argument he revealed he's making a bloody fortune by tweeting.

According to legal docs, obtained by TMZ, Mr. O says he makes between $2,800 - $6,400 per tweet.  In one instance, he pulled in $2,800 to tweet for Cutters -- a football glove company.  He raked in $4,800 for tweeting on behalf of Old Navy.  And he got $6,400 for tweeting about Fantapper -- a sports social networking site.

T.O. also discloses he's earned residual money for an episode of "Punk'd" and for his appearances on "Any Given Sunday" and "Necessary Roughness."

And get this ... T.O. scored $10 grand for promoting Yahoo Fantasy Football and $20 grand for promoting a Super Bowl party.

So why is T.O. trying to get out from under paying his baby mama's attorney's fees?  It's because he spends like a mutha. His average monthly expenses are $82,178.30, plus $44,602 in child support.

T.O. says he has no new sources of income and is basically broke.

Just goes to show you it doesn't matter how much money you mak....if your overhead expenses are more than you're income you're basically broke or hanging on by a thread.

You would think with all that money coming in from various sources T.O. would be on easy street. He started out living ABOVE his means and now he's paying for it. Probably figured the football money would never dry up.

WAKE UP AMERICAN and stop supporting all these people by tweeting, watching shows, etc. BOYCOTT the companies that pay these twits this outrageous money for doing nothing. You can make a difference...stop watching kardashian shows, stop tweeting with idiots like t.o. and let the companies know that support these fools.

More proof that you can not trust a single thing that comes out of public figures mouths. Someone is always giving them cash or free products to sell to you.

"...average monthly expenses are $82,178.30, plus $44,60...2 in child support.

T.O. says he has no new sources of income and is basically broke."

sounds to me like he's taken a play out of the federal government's playbook when it comes to money management... pathetic.
