Paternity Judge To T.O.

Your NFL Career Is Over

1/4/2012 11:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0104-terrell-owens-tmz-ex-1Terrell Owens was just told his NFL career is in the toilet, with little prospect for a turnaround -- and he got the word from a judge handling his paternity cases.

T.O. was in L.A. County Superior Court this AM, asking Judge Marc Marmaro to reduce his child support payments in 2 of his 4 ongoing paternity cases, because he's just not pulling in the bucks.

T.O.'s lawyer made it clear -- his client is a man without a team and therefore a man without a paycheck. The judge went one step further, telling T.O. his prospects for a comeback are bleak.

Judge Marmaro said, "His NFL career seems to be over. I mean no disrespect."  T.O. nodded his head in acknowledgment.

And get this ... the judge apparently felt sorry for the beleaguered parent, offering him a ray of hope by noting that Kurt Warner went from an Arena League player to a Super Bowl champ. There's a buzz that T.O. may get picked up by an Arena team.

As for reducing his child support ... the judge wants to noodle on it before making a decision.

When will these athletes start wearing condoms and stop having babies with women who only like them because they are, in fact, athletes and for no other reason. Cover up your noodle and you won't have to worry about this stuff, really it isn't that hard to figure out and only the children suffer.

give me a freakin break    

While I do blame the guy for just throwing his stuff out there and making babies...why can't these women back off? I mean, if he's making less money, it's only right.

These grimy, dirty, females are set for life, and they get more in "child" support in a month, than most people make in a year. It's ridiculous. KEEP YOUR LEGS CLOSED LADIES, YOU HAVE THE POWER TO SAY NO. BUT YOU DON'T BECAUSE YOU WANT TO GET PAID AND NOT WORK. You think all that money goes to those kids? Nope.

Awwww, poor skanks failed by picking the wrong guy to get their pregnancy pay day from.

Where's his old publicist who said "he has twenty five million reasons to live" after he tried to kill himself?

He's just arrogant fool and his money has now parted. Maybe he can get some financial advice from Antonie Walker.

Four children by four different women. That's horrible. You shouldn't have children scattered all over the place like that

Sounds like he's going to get rewarded for blowing all his money. Had he properly managed and saved his money he'd never need to work another day in his life.

I'm not excusing Mr. Owen's behavior (hasn't he ever heard of condoms??), but can't the mothers of these children get a job? There's such a thing called a gravy train and theirs has ended.

Note to Hos: Pick a sugar daddy with some actual sugar before you let him knock you up.

My heart goes out to him. I hope he gets another chance and learns from his mistakes.

All paternity suits, etc. aside... A big part of the reason he doesn't have much money anymore is because a trusted friend/accountant bilked him out of tens of millions of dollars. But still...when you make that much money, you've got to have your head in the game (in terms of finances) 24/7.

Like T.O. himself has been known to say. I LOVE it!
