Anyone that has peeped The T.O. Show on VH1 has probably clowned Terrell Owens a time or two for his extra-emotional moments and constant stream of tears. But it appears now that things may have really gotten seriously ugly for the athlete/reality star. According to TMZ, T.O. was taken to an L.A. hospital late last week for a possible drug overdose.
Emergency officials were responding to a call about a possible prescription pill overdose when they were dispatched to the L.A. apartment where Terrell Owens was staying last week … law enforcement sources tell TMZ.
As we first reported, Owens was transported by ambulance to an L.A. hospital Thursday night. Cops were also dispatched to investigate — and spoke with T.O. at the hospital.
Owens has since been released.
A rep for Owens had no comment on the matter.
T.O. was famously hospitalized back in 2006 — when he insisted he had a bad reaction to painkillers … despite reports that he tried to commit suicide by inhaling 35 Vicodin pills.
T.O. later held a news conference on the matter and stated, “The rumor of me taking 35 pills, I think is absurd. I don’t think I would be here if I had taken 35 pills.”
I hope this is nothing more but a rumor, but usually TMZ is pretty reliable and on point with their reports. If it is true, I wish nothing but the best for T.O. in getting all of the help that he needs.
