Theballerlife.com just heard that the lawyer for the mother of one of former NFL star Terrell Owens’ children, filed court papers on Wednesday alleging that he 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 court documents filed Wednesday, Owens also called Smith to refute reports that he was broke. He allegedly said in a text message: “Not looking 4 pity, sympathy, nothing! I’ve never said I was was broke. Tht’s what the media has said. Enjoy ur day.”
Last month, Owens appeared on the Dr. Phil show with Phil McGraw and said he has four children with four different women. Owens admitted he had been “irresponsible in that regard.”
During the appearance, Owens was berated by Smith and two of the other mothers.
Melanie Smith is the mother to Terrell’s third child, 7-year-old Dasha. Smith claims that she’s struggling to make ends meet, especially since she says Owens is 5 months behind in child support.
Owens allegedly owes Smith approximately $30,000 plus interest.
