Terrell Owens' Baby Mama

You're in the NFL Now ...


8/15/2012 1:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Terrell Owens
can easily afford $5,000 a month in child support thanks to his brand new NFL contract -- this according to one of his baby mamas ... who's now fighting T.O.'s request to reduce his financial obligations.

Owens had filed legal docs last year -- asking to reduce his enormous child support payments to FOUR separate baby mamas -- because he was unemployed at the time ... and seriously strapped for cash.

But last week, Owens signed a contract with the Seattle Seahawks -- a deal reportedly worth almost $1,000,000.

Which is why baby mama #4 -- a woman named Melanie Paige Smith -- has just filed papers, asking the judge to dismiss T.O.'s payment reduction request.

In the docs -- filed by Melanie's lawyer Randall Kessler -- she claims, "It is clear that a downward modification of [T.O.'s] child support obligation is not warranted" due to his new Seahawks contract ... as well as his income over the last 5 years, which Melanie estimates to be around $29,000,000.

According to Melanie, T.O. earned $7,000,000 playing for the Cowboys in 2007, signed a $13,000,000 contract with the Cowboys in 2008, signed a $6,500,000 with the Buffalo Bills in 2009, and signed a $2,000,000 deal with the Bengals in 2010.

And then there's T.O.'s indoor football contract with the Allen Wranglers -- which Melanie says was six figures.

But Melanie's math doesn't exactly add up -- T.O. was released from the Cowboys early, got injured mid-season with the Bengals, and was released from his Wranglers deal after less than a year.

Calls to T.O. have not been returned.

This woman needs to sit down. Why should TO have to pay $5,000 per month, when Chris Bosh makes 18 million and only pays around $2,000 per month in child support? I wouldn't be surprised if her child support is actually reduced based on his income.

I just can't believe teams keep hiring this loser. All he's gonna do is drop the ball, blame everyone else on the team, cause divisiveness — oh yeah, guess since i'm not a seahawks fan, I should be THRILLED!

This chick is beyond dumb. Just because he signed a contract doesn't mean he's guaranteed all that money. NFL contracts are not guaranteed. So just because he signs somewhere for a certain amount of money doesn't mean he is guaranteed all that money. He gets that if he plays out the entire contract.

He won't have any money if she has her way.

I am not defending T.O. by any means, but the guy pays $44,60...0 in child support. His current contract won't pay him a check until the season starts..and after taxes he will get roughly $500k. Means his salary will allow him to pay for 11 months before he is broke. Sounds like a reduction is in order. This girl (these girls) need to shut up. It's not like money grows on trees.

PSA: for the millions that appear to not have a full grasp of the causal relationship between sex and babies, i'm going to lay it on the line for you. sex is PROVEN to cause pregancy (ie. you get a baby out of that). if you want children, have unprotected sex. if you do not want children, there is a plethora of methods of birth control. you get to choose! it is that simple! spend $10 on a box of condoms, or spend hundreds of thousands on a child that you are going to raise. ...they frown upon dropping these things off at petsmart. i've seen it happen. it aint purdy.
