Terrell Owens reportedly owes $250K in unpaid taxes

Terrell-Owens-cryingIt sounds like Terrell Owens still has some serious financial problems, despite what his publicist may want us to believe. Owens reportedly owes a quarter of a million dollars in unpaid taxes from two years ago.

According to documents obtained by TMZ, the federal government claims TO owes $244,391.52 in unpaid income taxes for the 2012 tax year. Owens signed a contract with the Seattle Seahawks in 2012 but was cut before the season and made just $4,300. As TMZ noted, he must have had some other sources of income to rack up a tax bill of that magnitude.

This is not the first time TO has had tax issues. He reportedly paid off a $430,000 tax lien last year that he had racked up from 2005 to 2009.

But that’s not all. Owens’ estranged wife Rachel Snider — whom he shared a solid several days of marriage with — said last month that she is going after alimony payments. Snider had previously accused TO of only marrying her so he could obtain a $2 million loan for a home purchase.

Less than two years ago, Owens was ordered to work at Goodwill after he missed child support payments. All this stuff can’t be made up, right?

Rachel Snider hints naked photos were leaked by T.O.

Some nude photos of Rachel Snider made their way onto the internet Thursday, and Snider hinted that Terrell Owens is to blame for the leak.

Snider is the postal worker to whom T.O. was married for two weeks. The two were married in California in late January, but the union was as brief as can be. She accused him of marrying her for her money — specifically so he could get approved for a home loan. He denied that was the case. Both expressed a desire to file for divorce in early February.

But the drama didn’t end there.

Snider was reportedly hospitalized following a suicide attempt in February. We noted last month that she is seeking alimony from Owens.

On Thursday, a Twitter account popped up and apparently shared some nude photos of Snider. She confirmed through her Twitter account that the pictures were of her and said they were private photos only intended for her husband.

Terrell Owens’ estranged wife Rachel Snider seeking alimony

Terrell-Owens-girlfriend-Rachel-SniderBy its most basic definition, alimony is a provision that a husband or wife has to pay to his or her spouse after divorce. Alimony payments are typically designed to allow a person to continue living after marriage the way they were during marriage without having the rug swept out from under them, so to speak. Now, let’s get to Terrell Owens and his estranged wife Rachel Snider.

As many of you know, Owens and Snider — a postal worker from Texas — got married in a private courthouse ceremony back in January and managed to keep most of the details of their relationship a secret. Several days later, Snider accused TO of only marrying her so he could obtain a $2 million loan for a home. The two are currently in the process of getting divorced.

On Friday, TMZ reported that Snider is going after alimony. She wants Owens to pay all of her legal fees in addition to providing her with alimony payments. Snider also reportedly plans to refute TO’s claim that the former couple has no community property.

In other words, Snider believes she deserves financial compensation for her 72-hour failed marriage with the former NFL star. I’m not sure how her life could have changed during that short span to the point where she would now need Owens’ money to support her lifestyle (especially since she claims he married HER for money), but such is life in the United State of America.

Owens has already had enough problems with child support payments. He has no children with Snider and they weren’t even married for a week. Don’t be surprised if a court rules in his favor.

Terrell Owens’ wife Rachel Snider reportedly hospitalized after suicide attempt

Terrell-Owens-girlfriend-Rachel-SniderIn a matter of weeks, Terrell Owens and his wife Rachel Snider have gone from a couple that we know very little about to being directly in the gossip spotlight. The duo is already getting a divorce, with rumors swirling that Snider believes Owens married her so he could obtain a $2 million loan for a home. A new report indicates Snider may have tried to kill herself.

According to TMZ, Snider was hospitalized over the weekend after what sources described as an “apparent suicide attempt.” If you scroll through Snider’s Twitter timeline, you will see that a lot of people have wished her well in her recovery. There is no indication of what happened.

TMZ noted that Snider previously stated on Twitter that she had been hospitalized for a “broken heart.” One Twitter follower who asked what happened was told she is simply “broken down” at the moment.

On Sunday, Snider tweeted that she holds no ill will toward TO.

Owens’ people claim money has nothing to do with the divorce and that TO is doing well financially.

Terrell Owens: Donovan McNabb was jealous of how Philly embraced me

Donovan-McNabb-Terrell-OwensTerrell Owens and Donovan McNabb did not exactly get along like Fred and Barney during their time together with the Philadelphia Eagles. Had they won a Super Bowl, the relationship may have been different and not seemed like such a power struggle.

During an interview with Angelo Cataldi on the 94WIP Morning Show Tuesday, Owens shed some light on what went wrong between him and his former teammate. Basically, he believes McNabb was jealous of him.

“My thing is, I had nothing but respect and love for Donovan [McNabb],” Owens said, according to CBS Philly. “I think he felt kind of slighted at how honestly, at probably the way the team, well actually the city, just embraced me while I was there considering when he got drafted they [fans] didn’t want him there and things like that.”

TO said he had his own “celebrity” status before joining the Eagles, which may have fueled McNabb’s resentment.

“I could still hear those fans chanting my name, ‘TO, TO, TO, TO’. I can hear that like it was yesterday,” Owens said. “And then, again, playoffs — main questions they asked him was, ‘Are you guys gonna win, can you guys win without T.O?’ That had nothing, really — it did have something to do with me, but I wasn’t asking those questions. I think he kind of got upset and annoyed at the fact that he felt his skills were kind of being undermined as one of the reasons why they got to the Super Bowl.”

As recently as June 2012, McNabb admitted that TO gave the Eagles a boost but said he believes the team could have made the Super Bowl without him. Owens was also critical of the contract McNabb got from the Washington Redskins back in 2010, and he ended up being right about that.

I certainly wouldn’t say Owens and McNabb have the same hatred for each other that Michael Crabtree and Richard Sherman have, but they obviously aren’t going to hang out and crack a beer together. Had they won a championship, things would likely be much different.

Terrell Owens: I do not need wife Rachel Snider’s money

Terrell-Owens-girlfriend-Rachel-SniderTerrell Owens and his wife Rachel Snider look like they are going to give Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries some serious competition for quickest marriage ever. Owens married Snider, a postal worker from Texas, in a private courthouse ceremony on Jan. 23. Snider already wants a divorce and has accused TO of only marrying her for money.

Snider reportedly told TMZ last week that she is “heartbroken” and feels Owens only married her so he could obtain a $2 million loan for a home in Sherman Oaks, Calif. Naturally, TO’s people say that is totally false and he is doing well financially.

“Money is NOT an issue for Terrell,” Owens’ representative reportedly told TMZ on Monday. “Come on, she’s a postal worker. Do you really think she’s the primary on the loan?”

The rep added that TO is the “primary” person on the $2 million loan and that his marriage to Snider had nothing to do with money. Owens is supposedly filming a new show that is coming out in March and plans to file divorce papers against Snider as soon as he returns to California. We know he has had financial problems in the past.

In other words, it sounds like it is now a race for who can file the papers the quickest. Only in America.

Report: Terrell Owens’ wife Rachel Snider wants divorce, thinks he used her for money

Terrell-Owens-girlfriend-Rachel-SniderBefore the general public even realized Terrell Owens had a new girlfriend, he and the young lady were already married. Owens married Rachel Snider, a postal worker from Texas, last month in a secret ceremony that took place in a California courthouse. The wedding took place on Jan. 23, and Snider reportedly already wants a divorce.

According to TMZ, Snider has left TO and is planning to file a divorce. Why? She thinks he married her for money.

“I felt in love … and now I feel betrayed and heartbroken,” Snider reportedly told TMZ.

Snider claims Owens used her so he could get a $2 million loan for a home in Sherman Oaks, Calif. Owens has had some serious financial problems over the past two years and almost faced jail time for missing child support payments, so it would make sense that he would be unable to obtain that type of loan on his own.

Here we were thinking TO had finally grown up and gotten himself into a low-profile relationship for all the right reasons. This kind of puts a damper on that. At least they didn’t spend all kinds of money on a big fancy wedding.
