NFL star Terrell Owens is accusing a former employee of stealing $27000 from him to pay the man’s rent.  Apparently, it took him a minute to realize what had happen & now the ex-employee is still on the run.

“Atlanta police are looking for Antonio Edwards, 35, who is accused of using Owens’ Bank of America account to make monthly rent payments for his Buckhead apartment.

Edwards lived in the Post Alexander apartment complex from November 2009 through November 2010, according to police documents.  Edwards was paying the rent, which averaged a little over $2,100 a month, an incident report states.

I wonder how often this happens to athletes? They have a lot of yes men, family, friends, groupies and what not, who are real close to their financial info.
