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


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.

    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.

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

    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?

    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.
