KC Chiefs Jovan Belcher

Girlfriend's Family

Never Saw Problems

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

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.

Happens so often in most cases it's because the g/f wants to leave...

I wonder where their baby was during all of this? Hopefully, somewhere safe and away from the scene. My prayers are going out for the child, families, and friends of these two people.

He allegedly had a discussion with the GM and coach before all of this happened. He went home killed her and went back to the stadium and killed himself. Who knows what was going through his mind. Maybe he suffered from depression, let down, etc. Let them RIP and the family deal with their grief.

What an *******! Whatever the facts are, does not excuse him from taking the life of a young woman who had just given birth to his own child! This is the kind of person I think, when they die should be put in a special place, looking at what they did for eternity.

Who cares what the cause was. Nothing in this world is worth killing somebody or commiting suicide. Jovan was a selfish wimp. I hope you enjoy Hell now Jovan!!! RIP Kasandra.
