A paternity lawsuit has reportedly been filed against a member of the Atlanta Falcons professional football team, according to recent reports on various entertainment websites.
In recent months, we have blogged about professional football player Terrell Owens and his repeated run-ins with the Fulton County family court system regarding his alleged failure to pay his court-ordered child support. Now, it appears that the threat of jail time for contempt has again motivated Owens to make good on his child support payments.
According to a statement from Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank, he and his wife, Stephanie, have separated. Although the couple has not yet announced whether they plan to seek a divorce, Falcons fans are already wondering whether the split will be similar to one the most newsmaking high-asset divorces in professional sports: that of Frank and Jamie McCourt, the owners of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
