Terrell Owens
claims he wasn’t trying to duck his baby’s mother by not appearing at a child support hearing last month … instead, he claims he had an obligation to attend a public workout session in the hopes of securing an NFL contract.

TMZ broke the story … a California judge issued a bench warrant for the football player’s arrest for not appearing at a scheduled hearing on October 24.

But T.O.’s rep tells us he tried like hell to reschedule he had a massively publicized workout at Calabasas School that day (below) … but his baby’s mother wouldn’t cut him a break.

As far as the child support payments are concerned, T.O’s rep says … “Mr. pays child support payments for his 4 children. The amounts
are based on his 2007 Cowboys income of $ 11-$ 12 million a year.”

T.O. claims the payments are unfair because he was making 1/5 of the money when he was playing for the Bengals he left Dallas … and currently has “no income.”

The rep concludes, “Mr. Owens is working to resolve all of these matters and appreciates his
fans’ support. We are confident that Mr. Owens will be signed this
season to the NFL and all of his child support payments will be modified
fairly according to his true income.”
