Former NFL player Terrell Owens says that he is being extorted over claims that a woman has some unflattering nude masturbation pictures of him and has threatened to sell them to tabloids.

The woman says they chatted on Skype after connecting through Twitter.

“It’s obvious that she has nothing because it’s illegal with what she’s trying to do or otherwise TMZ would have bought the photos,” Owens told Philly.com. "This is a case of extortion this is a waste of my time and you’re wasting your time because I have nothing to say."

The 27-year-old woman did not want to be identified and spent this week trying to sell the photos to TMZ and other media outlets, according to Philly.com.

“I’m not sure what you or her are trying to accomplish,” Owens said. “At the end of the day God is good. It’s unfortunate people make attempts to ruin people’s lives.”
