12:58 PM PT -- Things are getting even more petty between Owens and Stephen A. ... the two are now in a heated argument on social media over who asked who to be on Thursday's show.
"They called my guy @douggiefresh21 and asked ME to be on the show!!" Owens said. "Let’s not get it twisted! I got the texts from my guy @douggiefresh21 himself asking if my ears were burning because someone at @Espn had just called him to have me come on the show."
Owens added in a tweet directed at Stephen A., "Again, 'THEY' have given u information, wrong information at that and u believed it!! AND I’M GONNA LEAVE IT AT THAT!"
