Since the shocking murder suicide involving NFL player Jovan Belcher and the mother of his child, Kasandra Perkins, people have been wondering what could have caused the NFL player to commit such heinous acts. As always there is a lot of speculation and gossip when a situation likes this takes place.

If you make your way to some of these gossip websites you’ll see that there are many theories as to what happened between the ill-fated couple. People have gone so far as to even involve singer Trey Songz as a factor in what happened.

Now the NY Post is tossing out another theory as to what made Belcher cowardly lodge nine bullets into the 22 year old mother of his 3 month old daughter.

Here’s what was written:

The Long Island mother of Kansas City Chiefs football player Jovan Belcher told investigators her son argued with his girlfriend Kasandra Perkins over their baby’s paternity before he shot her dead and killed himself, The Post has learned. Cheryl Shepherd — who was in her son’s suburban Missouri home the morning he shot Perkins nine times — told investigators after the shootings that there were questions about whether the West Babylon, LI-raised linebacker was the father of the couple’s 3-month-old daughter, Zoey, said sources familiar with the situation.

“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.”

A Kansas City law-enforcement source confirmed, “She told [police] there was a question about the paternity.”

It’s unclear if the paternity issue was the reason for the final, violent end of the troubled relationship between Belcher, 25, and Perkins, 22.

“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.

  1. Wow, that argument could have been solved with a simple DNA test. He still didn't have to shoot her which lead to him killing himself. I wonder if her family will now request a DNA test since his mom is taking care of the baby? I wish he had chosen a different route.
