Terrell Owens is a man without a team and endorsement deal which equals no money or career. The football player recently went public with his personal life and revealed to the press that he felt betrayed by longtime friends and assistants Monique Jackson and Kita Williams.
The ladies kept their silence until recently. In an interview with The Insider, the girls shared the long history the three had together, dished about the ups and downs in their friendship:
TheInsider.com: How did all this start? Terrell says you double-crossed him. Kita: He’s mad at everybody. We were friends first. People forget that. We were friends for 12 years. Terrell is the only client we had where we had a friendship first. The GQ article didn’t bother us (T.O. recently did an interview with GQ where he stated he was broke and had no friends). Terrell is typically known for running his mouth, he says things off the cuff, he’s mad at the world. It didn’t bother us, that article we knew about.
TheInsider.com: So what took you guys over the top emotionally?
Kita: His Wendy Williams interview. We didn’t steal anything from him. And he sat on that couch, and said a friend stole some money. People assumed he was talking about us, and he never really stated he WASN’T talking about us. So that’s how Wendy Williams made the assumption and went on her after show saying ‘Those two girls ripped him off! I can’t believe Mo and Kita would do such a thing.’ Having an opinion is one thing — anyone can have an opinion — but when you state it as fact now you are messing with my reputation as a professional woman. Monique and I have been in this business for over 15 years. Before T.O. And we’ve worked with artists from Ludacris, to Jay-Z, Mariah Carey, Method Man and more. We worked for Def Jam! So for him to say something like that and not be clear — that’s where we got hurt. We’re hurt more than anything.
TheInsider.com: So just to set the record straight, neither of you have ever stolen from T.O.?Mo
