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.

Cassandra's family never saw problems? Really? A close personal friend was just interviewed on TV and said they "constantly argued." Relationships never go from happy and healthy to murder-suicide over night. Never. I guaranteed there were warning signs that friends and family ignored or did not realize the importance of. How tragic or their child, the families and friends, and KC Chief nation.

He graduated from UMaine in December 2008 with a bachelor’s degree in child development and family relations. Worst thing to happen to the kid.
