FYI, Candace -- who's in the middle of a nasty divorce with Terrell -- claimed the Baltimore Ravens star is refusing to pay for clothes for their 2 young kids and forces them to go to school without lunch money.
White tells TMZ Sports ... "Terrell takes magnificent care of his children. He is a caring and present father."
"We normally would not respond to such a rant by an ex clearly scorned."
"Terrell is disappointed that his ex would take to social media to try and paint a picture of him as a father who somehow does not take care of his children."
"His children remain his focus and the #1 priority in his life. Terrell is a great father and that can and should never be questioned."
