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.

This is a case plain and simple of a young man who completely lost it thinking his girlfriend was not faithful to him or had been. Not about head injuries, or blaming the victim, or the perp. Nothing is an excuse, or a relationship so unraveling, that you act out in taking someone's life and/or your own. Bottomline, something was going wrong, and neither he nor she could see it would lead to this. This young lady is locally here from Texas, and he was from NY. Many folks personally knew them. Yet it is horribly tragic for both families. Terrible on some many levels. Like or Hate the remarks , yet this is being Real.

Made they think that they are powerful to think that this tragey is funny,but it it really unthoughful to think that a man who killed his wife and left a child with no parents.To all the couples rather married or not there is help out there.You need to think before reacting.And to all the wife beaters and husband beaters if you can't get along get out.

I think this young man has always been very evil and did things to harm her that her family and football players did not know about. Very envy he is it shows in his eyes evil. I think she went to concert to get away from him has been trying to leave him and maybe had a guy friend texting her and when she got home all hell broke loose.

Really? Them why are they reporting he abused pain pills and drank heavily and that she was considering leaving his sorry butt and fight for custody? He obviously had another side to him. People that ae substance abusers are not okay. I don't know if these people are in denial or just ignored the signs. The man was messed up. He shot her nine times!

Boohoo...a coward shot himself. He deserves to die he took another persons life!! The news keeps talking about how sad it is that a football player killed himself while making light if the fact that he killed someone else first!! I don't care who you are, superstar football player or not, that was a horrible thing to do. This is what's disgusting about society, they treat athletes like they are above the law and can do whatever they want and make WAY too much money for playing a game. It's pretty bad when the president makes a fraction of what a football player etc. makes.

Jovan Belcher, the Kansas City Chiefs football player was gay and he could not accept that. There were too many conflicts inside himself.

Honestly, Jovan was gay and was having trouble accepting it. I am sorry to see this is the end result of his conflicted feelings.

The reason why i said that cause too many times when someone gets upset they say things.And they means what they say. Like the old saying"when someone drunk the trust will come out or when the mad as hell"So i believe them i don't play with anyone feeling.

Very,very sad. If only. No one will never the real motive for this murder-suicide. One thing we do know is this: this was a very selfish and cowardly act committed by this freak. Nothing they were arguing about could have been serious enough to leave this little babe an orphan or take another person's life. My condolences to all concerned.
