National Football League wide receiver Terrell Owens says he only raked in a meager $28 per hour during his short pre-season stint with the Seattle Seahawks — this according to the new court docs filed by the football star in his Los Angeles child support case,
As part of his child support case, which involves two baby mamas, 38-year-old Terrell Owens is required to submit paperwork showing his financial status.
Since Owens signed a tentative deal with the Seattle Seahawks around August 7th, he had to hand over his pay stubs — which show the he raked in $4,342.86 for 152 hours of rendered work with the football team.
Terrell Owens was reportedly set to make $925k if he made the team. However, he was cut off after he failed to impress in three pre-season games.
Previous reports stated that when Owens was in his prime, he signed a $49 million deal with the Philadelphia Eagles.

One of the baby mamas of NFL star Terrell Owens reportedly has her fingers crossed that the recently-fired football wide receiver lands a new National Football League team — so that she can keep getting paid.
According to previous reports, Melanie Paige Smith, the fourth baby mama of 38-year-old Terrell Owens filed legal docs earlier this month to block the request of the football star to lower his huge child support payments.
In the docs, the reasoning of Smith was based largely on the fact that Owens had recently landed a deal with the Seattle Seahawks, a deal that was close to a $1,000,000 — and therefore he could now afford to continue giving money for child support.
However, as of Sunday, that is no longer the case. Terrell Owens revealed on his Twitter page that he has been kicked out by the National Football League team and is currently working as a free agent.
Now, Randall Kessler, the attorney of Melanie Paige Smith, said that the career snag of Terrell Owens will not affect his client’s request to keep the child support payments coming — at least for now. Instead, Smith reportedly has her “fingers crossed that another team picks him up.”
Popularly known by his initials, T.O., Terrell Owens is as renowned for his extravagant touchdown celebrations and public persona as he is for his talent on the football field. His actions on and off the field have led to various league fines, as well as frequent penalties for his team.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Terrell Owens will now be able to pay $5,000 a month in child support after signing a new contract with the National Football League — this according to one of his baby mamas.
Reports stated that Melanie Paige Smith — one of the football star’s baby mamas — has just filed legal docs, asking the judge to dismiss the payment reduction request of Terrell Owens.
According to the legal docs filed by Smith’s lawyer Randall Kessler, Melanie claims, “It is clear that a downward modification of Terrell Owens’ child support obligation is not warranted,” because of his new contract with the Seattle Seahawks, as well as his income over the last five years — which Melanie Paige Smith estimates to be around $29,000,000.
Melanie added that Owens earned $7,000,000 playing for the Dallas Cowboys in 2007, signed a $13,000,000 contract with the Dallas Cowboys in 2008, signed a $6,500,000 with the Buffalo Bills in 2009, and signed a $2,000,000 deal with the Cincinnati Bengals in 2010.
Not only that. Melanie Paige Smith said that Terrell Owens also had an indoor football contract with the Allen Wranglers, which Melanie claims was six figures.
However, Terrell Owens was reportedly released from the Dallas Cowboys early. suffered from an injury during mid-season while playing for the Cincinnati Bengals, and was released from his Allen Wranglers deal after less than one year.
Meanwhile, previous reports have stated that Terrell Owens had filed legal docs last year, asking a judge to reduce the amount of his child support payments to four separate baby mamas — because he was unemployed at the time and is seriously strapped for cash.
But just last week, the NFL player signed a contract with the Seattle Seahawks as the team’s wide receiver — a deal reportedly worth almost $1,000,000.
Calls to Terrell Owens for comment have not been returned.
A six-time Pro Bowl selection, Owens holds or shares numerous National Football League records, and features in the all-time top-five in a number of receiving categories, including touchdowns and yards.
As productive as he has been, Terrell Owens has been equally controversial, creating firestorms with almost every team he has played for as a professional football player. Owens played college football and basketball at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, and was selected in the third round of the 1996 NFL Draft by the San Francisco 49ers. Terrell Owens was then traded to the Philadelphia Eagles in 2004 after an argument with 49ers front office members. Two years later, he was released and signed to another large pact by the Dallas Cowboys, only to be given his unconditional release on March 4, 2009. Owens has also played for the Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals in 2009 and 2010, respectively. He recently played for the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League, before being released in 2012.

Former NFL wide receiver Terrell Owens has already paid the child support he owes to the mother of his seven-year-old daughter — making him avoid the threat of spending time behind prison bars.
According to the court documents, 38-year-old Owens appeared in Fulton County Superior Court in Atlanta on Thursday. Last week, the former football player failed to make an appearance for a court date in his child support case. The lawyer of Terrell Owens and a lawyer of his baby mama, Melanie Smith, had already come to an agreement before the hearing and signed it in front of the judge. Terrell Owens made the back payments in child support that he owes to Smith, and he also agreed to shoulder her legal fees.
“We’re pleased. It’s too bad it took this long,” Randy Kessler, the lawyer of Melanie Smith said after the agreement was signed. “If he’s not going to be there physically, he needs to be there financially.”
Terrell Owens left the court premises without talking to the reporters. A lawyer for the football star didn’t respond immediately to an email seeking comment.
The previous agreement requires Terrell Owens to pay Melanie Smith $5,000 a month. This was said to be the third case Smith has brought against the football star for not paying child support. In his previous cases, the former NFL player has settled and paid up child support even before the cases went to court, but then he failed to make successive payments.
Kessler added that his client, Melanie Smith, who lives in northwest Georgia, is happy to have the signed agreement, but would want Owens to be more involved in the life of their daughter.
“What she really wants is for him to have a relationship with his child,” Kessler said. Smith, who also made an appearance in court Thursday, said that her daughter has seen Terrell Owens about eight to ten times.
The football player has raised the possibility of lowering his monthly child support payments since he is no longer making an NFL salary. Kessler said that Smith is willing to discuss the matter.
Terrell Owens, who is known as T.O., played 15 years in the National Football League, most recently for the Cincinnati Bengals during the 2010 season. Before his single season with the Bengals, Owens played for the Buffalo Bills for one season, two seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles, three seasons with the Dallas Cowboys, and eight seasons with the San Francisco 49ers.

Perverts can now get their graphic nude photos of former NFL player Terrell Owens courtesy a cyber sex partner of his. (Bleach for eyes and minds are available at different locations.)
The Hollywood Gossip reported that a woman was selling nude photos of the football player having cyber sex with her. The woman claimed to be an online dating partner of Terrell Owens. According to her, they first met on Twitter and then moved to Skype to have video chats.
Though there was so much evidence available on the Internet that suggested it was a very bad idea (Exhibit A: The Tyson Beckford sex tape,) Terrell Owens decided to engage in cyber sex with his date during Skype video chats.
The Hollywood Gossip reported that the woman decided to take several “action shots” of T.O. using the absurdly easy screen-grabbing function found on MacBook. That was pretty much the same way that the Tyson Beckford sex tape got out.
THG was only half-joking when the webloid broached up the slim possibility of Terrell Owens getting a cut of the profits from the sale of his nude photos. Owens wasn’t just broke; he was also jobless, having been fired from the indoor football team Allen Wranglers.

The Allen Wranglers paid no heed to the ultimatum issued by Terrell Owens for money and an apology, leading to what may be a very nasty legal battle.
According to TMZ, the former NFL legend demanded that the Wranglers pay him $160,000 for 4 games that he did not get paid for. He also demanded that his former indoor football team apologize for alleging that Owens skipped a team charity event at a children’s hospital in Allen, Texas.
Terrell Owens vowed to sue if the Allen Wranglers did not comply with either of his demands by the end of the business day on Wednesday.
Sources close to the issue reportedly told TMZ that the the indoor football team refused to budge an inch on either the allegedly owed paycheck or the apology. In fact, Wranglers owner Jon Frankel recently accused Terrell Owens of skipping four more team events, which Owens fiercely denied.
In an ironic twist, TMZ obtained copies of a letter that the Wranglers sent to season ticket holders last month. The letter urged Wranglers fans to renew their membership for this year.
The irony: The letter clearly displayed the face of Terrell Owens, whom the Allen Wranglers dropped from the roster shortly after issuing the letter.

And the award for ‘Worst Severance Package in History’ goes to Terrell Owens, who received an eviction notice and $50 dollars from his indoor football league team, the Allen Wranglers, this week.
According to TMZ, sources close to Owens claimed that the Allen Wranglers sent a written notice to their star player that Terrell Owens had 48 hours to leave the house they provided him. They also ordered him to surrender the keys to the 2012 Jeep Cherokee they gave him.
But the biggest affront to the former NFL superstar, TMZ reported, was the $50 buyout for Owens’ 50% ownership stake in the indoor football team.
According to the Allen Wranglers, they dropped Terrell Owens because he breached his contract by skipping a charity event and sitting out 2 away games. Owens countered that his contract allowed him to skip away games.
As for the missed charity event, TMZ initially reported that Owens’ contract didn’t compel him to participate. Now the webloid reported that Owens claimed he was given the wrong date by the indoor football team’s publicist.
Believing that he was wrongfully terminated and slandered in the Wranglers’ media statement, Terrell Owens plans to settle the matter in court. Meanwhile, the Allen Wranglers have not yet responded to TMZ’s calls on the matter.

Terrell Owens responded to the news of his sacking by indoor football team Allen Wranglers by planning a breach of contract lawsuit against his former team.
In an exclusive report by TMZ, sources close to T.O. claimed that the ex-NFL superstar was displeased at being sandblasted by Wranglers execs for skipping a team appearance at a children’s hospital in Allen, Texas.
TMZ earlier reported that Wranglers president and co-owner Tony Benizio had accused Owens of not measuring up to the fans’ expectations inside and outside the field.
According to Terrell Owens, the terms of his contract with the Indoor Football League team did not require him to attend the event. In the mind of the former NFL player, the Allen Wranglers are the ones guilty of a breach in contract.

In addition, Terrell Owens “played all games according to his contractual agreement,” his rep asserted. Owens “was proud to be part of the IFL and the Allen Wranglers” until the supposed breach in contract.

How the mighty have fallen. Once considered set for immortality in the NFL Hall of Fame, fallen footballer Terrell Owens was kicked out of an indoor football team.
TMZ reported that Owens was released by the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League for keeping up the haughty ways he was known for in the NFL.
Wranglers president Tommy Benizio told TMZ that the decision to drop Terrell Owens was “performance based.” The final straw, though, was when Owens chose to drop out of a recent team visit to a children’s hospital in the Wranglers’ hometown of Allen, TX.
Benizio added that Owens had also been removed from the ownership group of the Allen Wranglers.
This was only T.O.’s first season with the Allen Wranglers. Terrell Owens scored 10 touchdowns in 8 games for his new indoor football team. He had hoped his performance in the IFL would get him back into the good graces of the NFL.
According to TMZ, Terrell Owens has been trying to impress NFL teams for years. He even displayed his athleticism for TMZ two years ago in a bid to advertise his skills. The January move to the IFL was considered a huge fall from grace for the former NFL superstar.
