Terrell Owens looking sad

Fallen NFL star Terrell Owens, second in all-time receiving yards behind Jerry Rice, is still hoping he gets another shot to play on Sundays. But his life has been a mess since he last played for the Cincinnati Bengals in 2010.

According to WSBTV in Atlanta, Owens missed a child support hearing yesterday, and is currently owes Melanie Smith $20,000 in missed child support payments. Owens and Smith are the parents of a seven-year-old daughter, who is in Smith’s custody.

Owens had agreed to pay Smith $5,000 dollars a month in support, but has a history of missing his payments.

Judge John Goger reset the hearing date for July 19th, and if Owens doesn’t show up he could face jail time.
