Report: Jovan Belcher Killed His Girlfriend After Questioning Who Fathered His Daughter

belcher222

The mother of Jovan Belcher, the Kansas City Chiefs player who killed his girlfriend and then himself, allegedly said that her son committed the murder after arguing with his girlfriend about the paternity of his daughter.  This was according to Belcher’s mother, Cheryl Shepherd.  During interviews about the incident, Shepherd said that the couple was fighting over who fathered their three-month old daughter, Zoey.

“The mother believed that there was an issue over whether [Belcher] was the father,” said a source close to the Chiefs with knowledge of the situation.

“She said he [believed he] wasn’t necessarily the father of the child.”

Police are not sure if this is the reason that Belcher committed the murder.  But a source told the New York Post that this was likely the reason for the argument.

“But the implication was that [paternity] was what the two of them were fighting about — that the baby might not have been his,” a source said.

Belcher shot Perkins at 7:50 am, and then headed to Arrowhead Stadium where the Chiefs play, and shot himself in the car.   Zoey is set to receive a $1 million dollar payment over the next 18 years to take care of her after the deaths of her parents.  But NFL Players Union spokesman George Atallah would not comment on whether or not the payments are contingent upon the results of a paternity test.

The couple had a difficult relationship and were receiving counseling for their troubles.  Perkins had moved out and lived with friends for a while, but then moved back in with Belcher.   The baby is now with Belcher’s mother.

  2. I THINK PERIOD ITS WAY TO MUCH VIOLENTS IN THE WORLD TODAY.LOOK HOW OUR CHILDREN ARE BEING RAISED,AND WHO ARE RAISING THEM….”DRUGS” !!!!GRANDMOTHERS ARE 30 YRS OLD STILL OUT THERE WITH THEIR CHILDREN…. ITS CRAZY REALLY….

  3. My opinion is that he killed himself and the girlfriend which tells me that he couldn’t live with the fact that she might end up with someone else…since there was a baby involved….so the baby was not harmed making it possible for the biological dad to have him but not the girl.

  4. Not a justifiable reason to snap. This guy had hidden mental issues.

  5. I’m not shocked, you don’t have to question paternity on average with white,asians or latinas.

  6. Who cares?!! I for one don’t! They are both dead now no coming back!! If he had doubts he had more than enough money to find out the truth! I really can careless to now here a story that he thought he wasn’t the “baby daddy”! So now does that justify him killing her?! Now we have to read all these baby daddy foolery comments come on ppl SMH!

  7. This is why it is of such import for young girls to stay young girls. Chastity is safe. Baby mama drama – not only dangerous (poverty and all other societal ills) it is just so hood. This is one of the main reasons that we as a people never will come up IS THIS ONE SAD PORTRAYAL of what black men and women. Girls and Women, are we that Desperate for a man? (Same for a man) This same thing happened in slavery. Do not want to go into any explanations, but to dishonor and disrespect each other waddling around in the hogpen with these "well to do and the not so well to do" men and women without marriage, I mean true marriage and committment, God is grieved with sin, now HE is outright ANGRY. "THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS AT HAND." It not that serious – take it from a singlemother/grandmother girls, keep your eye on the prize which is in Yassuah Emmanuel because the WORD says,"… when a man finds a wife he finds a good thing." So it is indicative, if we do our parts and be CHASTE – girls and women – and stop laying up (keep your legs closeed!) these type things would not happen. AND… don't go looking for a man, be led of God, BE PATIENT. GOD KNOW HIM, HE JUST NEED TO PREPARE YOU! (A Message from the Kingdom to avoid a spiritual death – in this case – a physical death.) IT AIN'T WORTH IT!

  9. Just hoping that is not the reason it happened and hope this isn't just someone throwing a rumor out there.

  10. I knew as soon as it happened what the reason was. Men need to request DNA test and women need to stop being so loose and reckless with their interiors. Highest rate of illegitimate children, non-biological fathers not knowing so, and increased rate of AIDS is in our community and on the shoulders of our young black women. Class and standards have so much to do with this situation other ways of life in our community. I am also at fault for low standards but if it starts at home then it has to start with the woman from birth.

    • It's not her fault, but I'm sure he didn't ask to be sharing an egg cell with another man!

    • It was his baby! The family is just trying to find fault somewhere.

    • And still no reason to kill nobody. Now the baby have neither parent. Selfish!

    • You are so right Shawntina, but me being a man. I would almost expect a person to react that way depending on how into the thought and meaning of being a father he was. Some people's fears and dislikes are similar but the reaction is always in question. If I was her I would be afraid someone would shoot me for that. I just hope this was not the case but I know people that has gone through that and it destroyed them and some moved past it cause they didn't want to be the father anyway. People just need to change and get more morals about themselves. Men and women.

  11. Newsflash, here's one better, why not try the COVENANAT of MARRIAGE. Hopefully, mature, committed, people in love will partake and beyond a shadow of a doubt through the love they share, they will create a life that undoubtedly springs forth from the love they share beyond any shadow of a doubt.

    In the meantime, we will have to go the route of DNA. Unfortunately, outside of healthy relationships we will have to trust in, "Moma's baby, daddy's maybe!" Guard your jewels people! Life is precious!

  12. Someone help me with this one Please….Cause maybe it’s me and my eyesight….
    Did anyone see the picture of Jovan holding his daughter with her face to the camera? She looks just like Jovan…Like he spit her out. To look at that baby and then question her paternity means he was either blind or looking for a way out of the relationshhip…But then again…Maybe its just me..

    • I am going to help you. The mother and baby are light skinned. He is a darker skinned guy. Does this sounds familiar to you?

  13. There’s no justification for the killing.

    But without a doubt a DNA test should be done.

    So many women are cheating behind the backs of their husbands & boy friends that you simply cannot trust any of them when they tell you they’re pregnant. Always insist on a DNA test no matter how angry they get. I know men tend to get a bad rap but the truth is these women are some of the most notorious liars you’ve ever seen. Don’t trust any of them get the test.

  14. I knew it was something to do with that baby. I knew it. They were probably arguing & she got mad & told him the truth….

  15. @ Debbie….. so on the damn money. Men always lose in the courts when it comes to this issue. There is a stress that every man knows when having a baby out of marriage. The days of just saying "oh well " are long over. Men must me as thoughtful and detailed as women….Its that important.

  16. That is what a DNA test is for. What is the world coming to? I am guessing there was more to this confrontation besides paternity issues.

  17. WOW ok now this is a twist But by no stretch of the imagination am I JUSTIFYING his acions. As a man ladies u all have no idea how a man feels when a woman pulls that ultimate betrayal on him. I sort of went threw this but it turned out it was my seed and I fought for her for 2 years went threw hell but got FULL UNTESTED custody of her. I had thoughts to hurt her but I realized I would be leaving a innocent lil girl behind who now is in a stable househould making A' B' and C's.

  18. Wow, you guys are so very judgmental. Just because he wasn't sure they baby was his, doesn't mean he was right. And he should have had a paternity test as soon as the baby was born. That poor baby girl.

    • Indeed, folks are judgemental and oh so shallow. Love is something that goes beyond all bounds to see folks through even the toughest of times. Stop sleeping around making just something you do like changing your underwear!

      Know a young couple, mother has four children, all by different fathers, and the third child turned out NOT to be the child of the supposed daddy, the grandparents thought of themselves as the grandparents soooooooo, when the paternity test came back, they continued life as they had known it prior to the DNA test. The grandson who was not their "blood" grandson is now living with them. This little boy is now blessed with TRUE LOVE.

      Problem in a nut shell, no love! Problem number two, we are raising our daughters and sons to be whores and whoremongerers!

    • One thing about being a "HUMAN BEING" is that when the heart is hurt or damaged, who knows where the head will go. If that is the reason he did it, it's wrong, but how selfish could a person be to play with a man about paternity of a child and think he would be able to handle it, blow it off, or just walk away. When pain is involved you don't know how a person would react so it would be easier to think of that when the sneaky business is going on. Wrong begets wrong, begets more wrong, till it hits the fan.

    Maybe his OTHER girlfriend whom he was with night before he killed her told him that bull…!

  20. I knew it was more behind this story.Her actions destroyed a whole family.

    • WELL.. I HOPE HIS MONEY GOES TO HIS FAMILY..HER FAMILY CAN RIDE THE BUS.

    • I HAVE BEEN THROUGH WHAT HE WENT THROUGH ( WITHOUT THE KILLING ) SO I KNOW WHAT WAS GOING THROUGH HIS MIND ( BESIDES THE SHOOTING PART) BECAUSE I WANTED TO BEAT MY EX INTO A COMA WHEN SHE TOLD ME… AND I WAS CARING FOR THE BOY FOR LIKE 3 YEARS..SO I WAS WAY OUT OF MY MIND.

    • You can not play with your spouce's feelings and think that everything is ok.I know of a couple of men and women who have been hurt over these types of situations.

  21. That kid was not his and he knew it.She tried to play him like a fool, and look where it got her!

  22. Why wasn't a DNA test requested if there was doubt of paternity? makes no sense.

  23. Lord help me! I would have a spinning fit if I could not get my grand baby! My Daughter! My Grand Baby! No Arguments! I hope Kasandra' s parents will go get their little precious granddaughter. Lord make a way!

  24. Where are Kasandra' s parents? Why Don' t they have their grand baby?

  25. I was just speaking of DNA's at birth….Men are going to have to step to the plate and ask for it whether it offends the other party or not….People get emotionally involved when a women is pregnant, the emotions follows into the birth of the child….It is messed up when the man feels like that baby isn't his, and sometimes his feelings are right….The grandparents are alive so a DNA can be done…If I was that girl's mother I would go and get my baby, and I am saying that as politely as I can…Regardless of who the father is, the baby came out of her daughter…Money distributed based on DNA….

    • THANK YOU SO MUCH DEBBIE. MY SENTIMENTS EXACTLY. HE SHOULD HAVE TAKEN PRECAUTIONS WITH HIS LIFE STATUS. A FOOL & HIS MONEY OFTEN PART. IF HE HAD USED PROTECTION, MAYBE THIS WOULD NOT HAVE BECOME AN ISSUE

    • Maybe if more people, young, old, wise and foolish, would subscribe to this entire scripture and heed the word of the Lord, we would have less drama and insanity!

    • Maybe if more people, young, old, wise and foolish, would subscribe to this entire scripture and heed the word of the Lord, we would have less drama and insanity! We have become like animals, simply mating for a feeling. Dogs do that!

  26. Erica but that's still a child tho u can't treat the child wrong cause the father crazy that child needs guidance, love, understanding and so on but it is a sad story

  27. YTH, DOES HIS MOTHER HAVE THE BABY, HER SON IS A FREAKIN MURDERING SOB!!!!!!!!!!!
