Terrell Owens Says He Did Not Try to Commit Suicide Earlier This Month

Well, that was quick. Less than a day after TMZ posted a 911 call that seemed to indicate that Terrell Owens had tried to commit suicide at his Los Angeles apartment earlier this month by overdosing on prescription pills, TO came out and said he was not trying to kill himself. He was simply trying to get a good night's rest.

"The facts are that [T.O.]'s assistant arrived at his home that evening after he had already taken a sleeping aid to fall asleep," Owens said through a statement released by his publicist late last night. "He was unresponsive because of this...Unaware he had taken a sleeping aid prior to her arrival, his assistant became concerned and decided to call 911."

That sounds believable enough. But if you listened to the 911 call, does it sound like that's what really happened? Eh, not so much. But, we'll probably never know what really went down. So this explanation will have to do. [via The Big Lead]
