Former NFL player and wide receiver for the Eagles, Terrell Owens, has finalized his divorce from Rachel Snider, who was his wife for a mere three days before he filed for divorce. According to TMZ, neither party will be receiving spousal support payments. The division of their property is confidential, but you would think there is little to fight over after only three days of being husband and wife.
The couple got married in a secret ceremony on January 23, 2014, and then they separated on January 26th. Owens filed the divorce paperwork a few weeks later on Valentine’s Day.
TMZ reports that T.O. said, “Not to be mean or negative but I’m honestly glad it’s over with. I’m no longer associated with that person. I learned my lesson and my life is in a much happier place.”
As for Snider, a postal worker from Texas, alleges that T.O. married her for money. In fact, she claims that he used her finances as means to qualify for a $2 million loan to buy a home in California. Although T.O. was paid millions of dollars throughout his football career, he still had serious financial problems in the past few years. In fact, he almost had to go to jail because he failed to appear at a child support hearing.
Snider also criticized T.O. for appearing on the ABC television show “Celebrity Wife Swap” with his “friend” Melissa while he was still married to Snider.
T.O. played 15 seasons in the NFL and was invited to the Pro Bowl six times. He played for the 49ers, Eagles, Cowboys and Bills. At the end of his career he was the second all-time in receiving yards (15,934) and third in receiving touchdowns (153).
In 2004 T.O. assisted the Eagles’ Super Bowl efforts with 77 receptions for 1,200 yards and 14 touchdowns. In fact, he disregarded his doctor’s orders and played in the Super Bowl with a broken leg and hurt ankle. In that game he made nine catches for 122 yards.
