Adrian Peterson

5th Baby with (At Least) 4th Baby Mama

10/16/2013 7:58 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details


Adrian Peterson
's baby count is now at 5 ... 'cause a 4th woman has surfaced who has a child with the NFL star, TMZ has learned.

This time, the baby mama is Erica Syion -- a former dancer who worked at a gentlemen's club in Dallas, TX. Erica and Adrian have a 4-year-old son together.

Sources connected to the situation tell us ... the two have a financial arrangement, in which Adrian gives Erica money to pay for the kid's schooling, as well as living expenses.


We're told the two met in Houston back in 2007 ... but their relationship has deteriorated in the past few years.

Sources tell us Adrian IS involved in the child's life -- but Erica is the primary parent, with Adrian visiting when he can.

In total, Adrian has fathered (at least) 5 children: 2 kids he referenced in a 2009 documentary ... one was 4 at the time. He didn't mention the age of the other (it's likely he was referencing his son with Erica).

Since then ... he fathered Adrian Peterson Jr. (who's 2-years-old) and a 3-month-old daughter with a waitress in Minnesota. His other son, a 2-year-old, passed away last week.

It's possible his 8-year-old and AP Jr. have the same mom -- but so far, we haven't been able to confirm.

no wonder he has to constantly play. he needs the paychecks to pay child support. his sperm swim like he runs. nothing stops them. in about 20 years, we could have a nice pedigree of RB coming into the NFL.

If you were to have a child from every person you've had sex with---MOST of you would put your stones down---but you think you're better because you used contraceptives or had your baby murdered (I mean aborted).
I frankly believe that this guy should take the sage advice of Bob Barker from the Price is Right and get neutered. Throwing money to stupid (and maybe not so stupid gold-digging) baby mamas and occasional visits doesn't not a father make. All of his kids are going to be screwed up FOR LIFE because he took being a "stud" too literally.

What a s***bag, no class. The kids will be thrilled to learn that this douche has kids with women from all over the place. This creep will be paying until he's broke, his women will see to that and then still complain that they are not getting paid.

So collectively, neither this guy or these women care about having unprotected sex. They don't care about having babies or catching an STD. This guy doesn't care about spending thousands on child support to his babies mamas and these women don't care about having a stable father in their kids' lives as long as the "financial arrangement" suits them. Winners, to say the least!

To all those that don't care, would you care if it was a woman who had 5 babies with 4 or 5 different guys.

Can ANYONE explain to me why this is so important that TMZ feels the need to dredge up how many kids this man has? Are you trying to dilute the fact that a child died? Are you reporting that the mother withheld the fact that he had a son with her or are you just looking to smear him? I'm confused? TMZ... you are just awful and should be ashamed of yourself.

Honestly, so what if this guy has 4...5...whatever kids!!!! Is this something new to the world or something?? At least the guy has money right now that he can financially take care of these children (no not the baby momma's....the babies!!).
The man gets "cat" thrown at him daily I am sure...HOWEVER; Mr. Adrian Peterson, you my brother need to wrap that shyt up!!!! What is wrong with you fool?? Is there not enough of this kinda childish carelessness going on in this world????

I work with a black guy who has 14 kids with 10 different baby mammas! And I know he doesn't make enough money to pay for all of them. So, who is paying for them, our taxes!
