T.O. tells Dr. Phil he squandered $80 million, can’t see his kids

Terrell Owens is the guest on today’s episode of Dr. Phil, and it doesn’t sound like life is going well for the former NFL wide receiver.

Although Owens has made $80 million, he told Dr. Phil that he has squandered most of it, and Owens is joined on Dr. Phil’s couch by three women who have had children with Owens and say he hasn’t made his child-support payments. Owens says he can’t visit his kids, who live in different cities, because his travel schedule is too demanding.

After the taping of the show, Dr. Phil said that while Owens insists he’s a good guy who has been misunderstood, the mothers of his children don’t seem to see it that way.

“He wants to tell people he’s not the person the media has depicted him of being,” Dr. Phil said. “I’m not sure he made a lot of progress with these women.”

Owens says he’s not done in the NFL and is ready to play this season. He last played in 2010, when he caught 72 passes for 983 yards and nine touchdowns for the Bengals.
