KC Chiefs Jovan Belcher

Girlfriend's Family

Never Saw Problems

12/1/2012 9:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jovan Belcher's Girlfriend Kasandra PerkinsKansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher and girlfriend Kasandra Perkins were an extremely happy couple ... this according to Kasandra's family, who says news of the alleged murder/suicide this morning came as an "utter shock."

Members of Kasandra's family tell TMZ ... Jovan and Kasandra always seemed to be in love. In fact, we're told when Kasandra got pregnant, she and Jovan were "ecstatic." The family says ever since the baby was born in September, the two couldn't have seemed happier together.

The 22-year-old's family says they have NO IDEA why the relationship took a tragic turn this morning -- when Jovan allegedly shot and killed Kasandra before taking his own life -- and news of their deaths was both devastating and unexpected.

Jovan started playing with the Chiefs in 2009 -- and Kasandra, who is originally from Texas moved to Missouri to be with him.

She was only 22 years old and had a newborn baby. How tragic. Whatever they were arguing about definitely wasn't worth her life. That poor baby is going to grow up without it's parents because that assh_le couldn't control his temper.

There are only a few things I can think of in this situation that would instantly drive a sane man crazy: finding out the kid isn't his and/or that she was cheating and the child might not be his and/or she was planning to take the kid, who is his, and sue for sole custody and millions in child support. Of course, people have been known to snap over stupid things, but that I don't understand.

This is sad. There probably was already a lot of negative **** and problems in their relationship before the baby was born. It's ok to call it quits people!

The fact that they had a new baby makes this even more tragic. My heart breaks for the baby, as well as both families involved with this.

Obviously, it's only "speculation", BUT,...based on the baby being born in September, and it now being the 1st of December, I think that it's NOT out of the realm of possibility that perhaps Jovan was NOT the baby daddy! Maybe he heard rumors? Maybe he had some evidence that his girl wasn't faithful? Who knows??? Maybe we'll find out more details, but that's an "easy" presumption on my part. ESPECIALLY,...if by all accounts, they seemed like a VERY HAPPY couple prior to this.

Chicks chase after these ballers. These ballers have too much money and way too much ego. Nobody puts them in check. Case in point Gia and that NO baller. Watch your back man. It's all about the money for these chicks. Not saying this is the case with this poor girl who got murdered by this *******. Condolences to the peoples, especially the baby. RIP.
Thumb me down. I don't care. I promise.
