Terrell Owens, impossibly taut at age 38, poses shirtless in the new GQ.
In addition to losing his shirt, he reveals that he lost nearly $80 million in career earnings. Now out of football and running out of money, he appears desperate.
When people text him to ask where he is these days, Owens replies back: "I'm in hell." Sad to hear that anyone feels that way. But is it his own fault?
Terrell Owens blames the media for not giving him a chance to rehab his injury, and blames agent Drew Rosenhaus for not protecting him from a bad business deal.
Owens earned around $80 million in his NFL career, but has found himself in deep financial trouble, despite never spending lavishly. How does that happen exactly?
It's not a matter of having lived too large, he insists. While he indeed racked up a few homes that milliond, the issue, he says, was being loyal and trusting to a fault.
Owens said financial advisers recommended by Rosenhaus lost his money in highly leveraged (some borderline illegal) ventures and the housing market collapse.
"I hate myself for letting this happen," Owens told GQ. "I believed that they had my back when they said, 'You take care of the football, and we'll do the rest.'"
"And in the end, they just basically stole from me."
It's a sad tale, but this is also a guy with four baby mamas and no job - can't blame your financial advisers for that - and whose brash self-absorption is unparalleled.
