          A Football Star's Daddy Drama

          August 13, 2012

          Terrell Owens is a six-time NFL pro-bowler and arguably one of the best wide receivers to play the game, but he may be better known for his antics off the field. His tumultuous career has been well-documented, and he’s been called arrogant, toxic and friendless. The football great sits down with Dr. Phil to set the record straight about the bad rap he says he’s been getting, especially from the mothers of three of his children, who claim he’s also a deadbeat dad who is behind on child support payments and makes little attempt to see his kids. See what happens when the moms come together to confront the alleged absentee dad.

          More than 16 million kids in the United States are at risk for hunger each day. Fortunately, you can help. Visit Feeding America to find your local food bank. And, help Dr. Phil raise enough money for 10 million meals. Donate today!

          Terrell says he’s trying to change his reputation, but the media won’t let him.

          Three of the mothers of Terrell’s children — Monique, Kimber and Melanie — say Terrell always has an excuse when it comes to his kids.

          “With me not being physically, year-round, in the same place as my kids, it’s hard for me to establish that relationship.”

          Terrell shares how he believes he’s changed.

          “Shame on you, Terrell”

          Kimber is raising her and Terell ‘s 7-year-old daughter, Kylee. She says Terell has seen Kylee only 12 times and doesn’t call her on her birthday or attend any of her events. “Terrell has been responsible financially, because the court has ordered him to be,” she says. “Terrell wants to do, literally, the bare minimum.”

          Kimber’s mother, Margarett, says Terrell disgusts her. “Terrell is not a father. He’s never been consistent at anything, other than being absent,” she complains.

          “I don’t know where this animosity comes from.”

          Does Terrell think Kimber is a gold digger? And, Dr. Phil shares a startling statistic about NFL players.

          Is He Paying Child Support?

          Melanie is mother to Terrell’s third child, 7-year-old Dasha. She claims that she’s struggling to make ends meet, especially since she says Terrell is four months and $20,000 behind in child support. And, Monique is mother to Terrell’s oldest child, 12-year-old Terique. She says that she and Terrell lived together until his career started to take off and he became a different person.

          What does Melanie want from Terrell?

          Is Terrell living the high life while his kids go without?

          “The father has a critical role for male children and female children.”
