A lawyer for the mother of one of Terrell Owens' children alleged in court papers filed Wednesday that Owens sent her "several taunting text messages ... regarding his failure to pay child support." Randall M. Kessler, an Atlanta-based attorney for Melanie Paige Smith, filed an amendment to petition for contempt Wednesday in Superior Court of Fulton County (Ga.), Family Division. In the amendment, Kessler offers evidence of Owens' "willful and egregious contemptuous actions, over and above the nonpayment of child support" and cites two text messages Owens sent Smith. One of the texts cited reads: "The other mothers got a dose of reality once my attorneys and judge explained by (sic) financial situation. ... so you can only imagine wht's gonna happen when we go 2 court." According to the document, in May 2007 Owens was ordered to pay Smith $5,000 a month in child support. He has "failed and refused to pay any child support" for December 2011 through this month. Owens allegedly owes $30,000 plus interest. Source: USA Today

That former Dallas Cowboys star wide receiver Terrell Owens would be on the verge of financial and personal ruin is one of the least surprising stories of the past couple of weeks. He plays the victim's role better than anyone in the history of the NFL, and so it's predictable he would blame his issues on everyone else, including the media.

The wide receiver announced on his website that he is "making changes in his life" and that apparently includes severing ties with his longtime agent, Drew Rosenhaus.
Terrell Owens appears to be grasping at straws at this point. Owens fired longtime agent Drew Rosenhaus in what Owens is saying was a decision based on him continuing his football career. Owens has hired Jason Woy, a Dallas-based agent who currently represents a handful of Cowboys.

When news came out that Terrell Owens had left agent Drew Rosenhaus in favor of Jordan Woy, an agent based out of Dallas, I had a couple of thoughts. First, Drew Rosenhaus is probably thrilled that he doesn't have to represent Terrell Owens anymore. Rosenhaus can't exactly make a lot of money when his client isn't getting any job offers. Frankly, if I was Rosenhaus, I...
