Atlanta-connected former famous footballer Terrell Owens is in the news again.
Of course, it’s not good news.
T.O.’s got money problems, among other troubles, according to a piece in GQ.
The once-electric wideout earned $80 million over a career marked by both accomplishment and controversy, but now, he says, he’s broke.
He’s also friendless and apparently despondent, living in an apartment in L.A.
Those money troubles, he says, stem from bad business decisions _ investments made at the suggestion of those presumed to be knowledgeable and operating in his best interests.
T.O. says he was never a big spender himself.
Now 38, he’s still aching for a comeback, on and off the field.
