NFL player and reality TV star, Terrell Owens, who’s already a “baby daddy” several times over, is two months late on child support payments to one of his baby mamas…and she wants him tossed in jail.
Melanie Paige Smith, who has a 5-year-old daughter with Terrell “T.O.” Owens, has filed a petition begging an Atlanta judge to toss Owens in jail.
According to her Melanie’s lawyer, Randy Kessler, Terrell is two months late on his payments and didn’t pay for June and July until August.
Why? Well…..T.O. says the NFL Lockout has drastically decreased his income (estimated to have previously been $666K a month) and now he says can only afford $2500 a month.
However, Melanie was not interested in taking a cut in her payments so she threatened to go public.
And at that point, Melanie’s lawyer Terrell reached out to her.
“He texted her and said she could speak to the media, he didn’t care,” her lawyer said. “So she has.”
Now a judge will decide if T.O. may need to film his reality show’s reunion episode behind bars, or if he will just pay the money.
