MONTGOMERY, ALA. (AP) - A lawyer says NFL star Terrell Owens has paid the child support he owes, so the mother of the child is dropping her attempt to hold him in contempt of court.

Melanie Paige Smith had filed court papers on June 20 in Atlanta, saying the wide receiver had refused to pay the full $5,000 a month he owes.

Her lawyer, Randall Kessler, has now filed court papers to dismiss the request that Owens be held in contempt. The court documents state that Owens has paid child support for June and July.

Kessler said Monday that’s he’s glad the matter has been resolved.

Owens, from Alexander City, Ala., is a free agent and can’t sign with a team until the NFL lockout is resolved.
