The NFL has committed to support Zoey Belcher the 3 month old daughter of Jovan Belcher and Kasandra Perkins

.

In light of the tragic murder-suicide that took place this past weekend, the NFL has committed to financially support Zoey Belcher, the three-month old daughter of Jovan Belcher and Kasandra Perkins, through college.

According to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport, Zoey Belcher is the beneficiary of the collective bargaining agreement signed last year. Zoey’s guardian or her estate is slated to receive $108,000 a year. When Zoey is five, she will receive $48,000, then $52,000 a year until she is 18 or 23, depending on whether or not she attends college.

Jovan Belcher’s mother, Cheryl Shepherd, currently has guardianship of Zoey. On Wednesday, Shepherd said Zoey is doing “fine,” but she herself has not eaten nor slept much following the tragedy.

  1. Why is his mom the guardian her parents should be since they are the real victims unless they don't want to look at the baby and remember him… But normally the parents of the murdered parent get custody..

  2. I'm glad she will be taken care of

  3. I'm praying for this little girl she is going to need all our love

  4. Little Zoey god is watching over you, it's tragic what has happened I wish you the best and my prayers go to both families

  5. It very difficult when baby have been caught up in tragic loses,not only that but when both parent are gone,in my heart my prayer go out to every one in matter I hope this doesn't turn out to be about money and greed,the child should be the main focus.

    His mother was already taking care of Zoey , so God know everything and we don't know nothing , but if we know how to pray then do that !!!

    • IF SHE WAS ALREADY TAKING CARE OF ZOEY, THEN WHY DID THE BABY HAD TO TAKE A LONG FLIGHT TO THE GRANDMOM. OPEN UP TO PRAY.

  9. That's the only bright spot out of this whole situation and that money should be itemized to make sure old granny doesn't wild out with it.

  10. The" Lord" will take care of little Zoey and the family threw they time of sadness.

    • Why he took her life we will never no, but he were wrong when you are leaving your girlfriend house why you didin't shoot the girlfriend, instead you going kill you baby mama (sad).

  11. I don't think think his mother should be the guardian…
