As many of you are aware, 48 hours ago certain aspects of my personal life became the topic of discussion on a number of entertainment, sports and celebrity blogs, as well as radio shows across the country.
Yes, my son’s father is NFL wide receiver, Terrell Owens. And two days ago, he and his team of advisors decided it would be a “good idea” to make sure the world knew exactly how much he pays in child support for not just my child, but all four of his kids in an attempt to evoke public sympathy.
Hmmm.. I THOUGHT PATERNITY CASES WERE PRIVATE MATTERS…
What Terrell’s advisors failed to mention was that he did not show up for our mediation and missed our son’s 5th birthday – both which occurred on the same day – then he wants to cry on his TV show that “he doesn’t have a relationship with his son”?
The hardest part in all of this is keeping my son from being bombarded by the paparazzi that now reside outside of his school. He’s five…He didn’t ask for this.
I see the reports have now labeled me “BABY MOMMA #3,” yet I work and have established a career as a celebrity makeup artist and men’s groomer.
My son is my number one responsibility and I am focused on always doing what’s in his best interest. Being a parent involves a level of self-sacrifice and selflessness that some people just don’t seem to get. Ultimately, it’s about just being there for your children.
I am grateful for his mother and family reaching out and embracing my son. But let’s be clear, it has been Terrell Owens’s choice to have never seen his son Atlin.
