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.

I can't think of anything sadder for the kid. Whatever it was it must have been earth ****tering. This guy graduated from UMaine in December 2008 with a bachelor’s degree in child development and family relations.

This is such a tragic event that is happened in the lives of both of these families. This is no time for the ignorant comments. Two lives have been lost no matter what the cir***stances were. Now TWO families are left wondering what happened and trying to figure this out. Heart felt condolences to both families in that poor little girl.

The problem that is that some men show on thing to their family and the public but when they are behind closed doors with their wife or girlfriend they show who they really are. And if they stay quiet and pretend everything is ok everybody will think thats persons life is perfect. And you there comes the comments that oh my god how could this happen they seemed so happy. Alot oof these women stay cause of the money and dont say anything for fear of destroying the mans reputation in the public eye. Again for the money they risk their lives.

You know to be honest most people don't pay very much attention to others unless they are acting extremely strange or having a knock out drag out fight. Otherwise people or so self centered they really pay very little attention to the peoples feelings or behaviors around them.

Take for instance when someone takes their lives. People will say I saw no signs, they seemed ok to me, their normal self. That's bologna! No one hurting bad enough to contemplate suicide or actually go thru with it is behaving normally. There is something different about their behavior, if their love one's cared enough to notice.

Whatever caused him to snap didn't just happened seconds before he pulled the trigger. This was a build up of problems. If the mother that was staying with them paid any attention to them she noticed something wasn't right. I want believe no one saw a problem!

This is a tragedy and many variables to contemplate. One being the baby ws not his, roid rage, infidelity or the fact girlfriend's mother moved in with them. None of this matters when you choose to take the life of another person and your own!

I am an African American woman and i have to say this, this guy was a successful football player and i wonder if he lived a rough life growing up, the look in his eyes, he looks like he has evil ways and probably always gave that young lady hell, rip ms.

This is such a tragic story. I have to say though from personal experience nobody knows what goes on behind close doors. The happiest couple may only seem that way. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of these two.

Is it possible he had an underlying problem due to head injury? There is a growing group of football players suing do brain issues due to head injuries sustained while playing football also mental disease is real
