T.O. reportedly late on child support payments again

For the third time in six months, an Atlanta woman has filed a petition for contempt against Terrell Owens as the out-of-work wide receiver has failed to make timely child support payments.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Owens missed the Dec. 1 deadline to send $5,000 to Melanie Paige Smith, the mother of their young daughter.

Owens faced jail time in September for not making timely payments but made amends in time to avoid that hassle. It sounds like Owens is going to have to get the checkbook out quickly in order to make good on matters with Smih.
