Adrian Peterson
baby mama #2 Erica Syion left out one HUGE detail when she said the NFL star has taken good financial care of his kids -- back in April, TMZ has learned, she sued his ass for $52,032 in unpaid child support and other child-related bills.

Erica -- who has a 4-year-old son with Adrian -- went on "TMZ Live" Wednesday, claiming AP dutifully pays his child support on time. But that wasn't the case earlier this year.

We've learned Erica filed court docs, claiming Peterson failed to pay child support for three straight years, and also failed to reimburse her for their son's travel expenses and school tuition -- a bill that totaled $52,032.

There must have been some bad blood after that -- because Erica filed additional docs in July, asking the court to order Peterson not to trash talk her in front of their son, and not to hide their son from her.

But it was all resolved in September -- according to court docs, the two reached a settlement. Erica tells us, Adrian paid all his back child support as well as the other bills.

But there's a catch -- according to the docs, AP plans to stop paying school tuition for their son by next year. Interesting.

Calls to Adrian's camp weren't returned.

just a note    

First, I am NOT defending this guy but, the point about his plans to stop paying school tuition.....that is probably because he is paying for daycare costs/preschool costs (After all, this kid is 4 and isn't actually in "school" yet). After this year, the kid will probably start Kindergarten and that will be free in most public schools.

she negotiated $2500/mo from a guy currently making $11.2M on it's way to $14M in 2 years.
child support is based on income and visitation. guessing by the numbers that's quite a bit more than $2500/mo.

25 years old and has 7 "out of wedlock" children. For all you saying "so what", he can afford it", here is a thought. One major injury could end this guy's football career. And, like so many football players whose careers were ended short, end up broke. Who will suffer? Those 7 children as their mothers child support will be the first expense AP cuts off. In 5 years....this guy will be hauled into court by each baby momma of his 7 children for unpaid child support. And, who will be on the hook for supporting these mommas and their babies?? The tax payers. It always happens.

I'm getting tired of reading all these articles bashing AP like he is the only person involved in this. These women are just as equally at blame. It takes two to tango, and they knowingly had unprotected sex with a man they were not in a commited relationship with and who knows what his intentions were. Claiming love is no reason to be irresponsible with your reproduction. Now they want to claim some fame by being "the victim mother of an unsupportive sportsman whore" or whatever.
AP has atleast been supporting these children unlike the many dead beat fathers out there. Although for his own sake and finances he needs to stop knocking up women!
But quit playing the victim and own up to your mistakes as well women. Stop having these poor kids with men that arent able to be a FATHER to them!

Yep, standard story. LaQuesha, JaNelle, Geor'gena and J'aqee all line up to squeeze out a puppy of some semi famous (aka has a big bank account) star. Baby mama lottery league. Nothing new here.

Everyone always gets down on the men, but what does this say about the women we are raising that just go out and give it up to any guy and don't protect themselves? I'm so sick and tired of these women popping out baby after baby and then saying it's all the man's fault....stop giving it to every Tom, Dick and Harry out there and show some respect to yourself and stop making the rest of us support all of your babies so we can put Maury out of a job!!

How about not spreading your legs the next time? That's the best birth control method there is.
