From injury drama to baby mama drama.
I knew when this lockout begun that a few of players were going to get into some trouble with their baby mamas because of missed child support payments. T.O.’s baby mama, Melanie Paige Smith, said the receiver has refused to pay the full $5,000 a month in child support he owes.
Melanie Paige Smith filed court papers June 20 in an Atlanta court seeking to hold the player in contempt.
Owens “has failed and refused to pay the full amount of child support for June 2011,” Atlanta attorney Randall Kessler wrote in court records. Owens’ financial advisers have informed Smith that he’s decided to no longer pay the full amount, Kessler added.
Kessler said Wednesday that Smith doesn’t have any ill will toward Owens.
“She simply asks that he follow the order to which he agreed,” he said. “Rather than discussing his situation with her or her lawyers first, he simply cut his child support.”
Come on Terrell.
I know it hard out there for a pimp right now with this lockout, but I’m pretty sure you got a few thousands in the bank to take care of your child.
Do the right thing my man.
