Terrell Owens Firing

$50 Screw Job and BOOTED from House

5/31/2012 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0530_allen_wranglers_to_tmz_compositeTerrell Owens got the crappiest severance package ever when his indoor football league team fired him this week -- an eviction notice, plus a piddly $50 buyout for his 50% stake in the team ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to T.O. tell TMZ the Allen Wranglers notified their star player, in writing, he had 48 hours to get out of the house they provided him -- and to hand over the keys to the 2012 Jeep Cherokee they gave him to tool around the Texas town.

But the biggest diss of all -- the $50 check the Wranglers wrote T.O. to repurchase his hefty share of the team's ownership! The financial screwing is most likely tied to the team's belief that T.O. breached his contract by missing a charity event and sitting out 2 away games.

But we're told T.O. is saying his contract allowed him to skip away games. As for the missed event ... we're told T.O. claims the team publicist told him the wrong date.

The whole matter could be settled in court -- as TMZ reported, T.O. is consulting with his lawyers since he feels he was wrongfully terminated and slandered in the team's media release regarding his firing.

The Wranglers have not returned calls for comment.

If he valued his job, he would have participated in all games and went to the charity event. If T.O doesn't care, why should they.

Just go to the Milwaukee Journal website and see what a real football player looks like. He also happens to be a true team leader.

If anyone deserves it it's Terrell Owens. That brougham had more chances than a monthly raffle at the local church. Skid row bro, way to go...

Pretty sure throwing away even more money on lawyers is about the worst thing he could do right now. TO fire your attorneys and publicists and start paying your bills! Michael Jackson died broke and alone, and all the people 'advising' him are still rich and alive. The money you paid your publicist should have gone to your kids.

You can't give someone 48 hours notice to leave their home. Since this is going to court they need to make sure everything they do is in accordance with the law.
