Adrian Peterson to Baby Mama

I Never Stiffed You ...

On Child Support, Anyway

NFL star Adrian Peterson never skimped on child support to the mother of his 2nd child, not once -- despite her claims -- at least according to official documents obtained by TMZ.

As we reported ... Erica Syion filed court docs back in April, accusing AP of stiffing her on more than $50,000 in unpaid child support and other bills (including travel expenses and tuition) related to their 4-year-old son.

She told us, Adrian eventually settled with her in September, paying all his outstanding bills -- but we've obtained official docs showing child support was NEVER in arrears.

According to the papers, Adrian has dutifully paid his child support to Erica ($2,500 a month) since 2009.

Sources close to AP tell us the court order which determined child support ... did NOT require him to pay tuition and travel expenses -- however when Erica raised the issue, Adrian ponied up.

We've also obtained docs showing Adrian asked the court for more visitation time with his son.

We reached out to Erica, but she hasn't gotten back to us.

Good grief, more from these losers. Bet she's just loving her moment in the spotlight. And considering his behavior, he deserves to get trashed regardless of the support issues.

TMZ why don't you get all the baby momas on the next tmz live in a conference call and ask all the ladies about it on live tv. That should get you some ratings.

Watching the skype interview with the Erica, it seems pretty normal, as normal as these situations can go. We could say, for her and the rest of the mothers of his children, that they were in it for a pay day but it honestly sounds like they were young and having fun. We all know what that's like.

Yep, and everybody has just been taking her word for it, and bashing this guy a week after his son died in one of the most horrible ways a child could die.

Who cares if he has 7 kids if he is taking care of them and expressing an interest in being a part of their lives, as he clearly has been doing.

This is why I wouldn't be famous for all the money in the world. People just love to believe the worst and tear you down even at the weakest moment of your life.

And what are all these baby mommas going to do when his career ends. Just more examples of STUPID. He may be responsible NOW, but when his playing days are over, guess what the gravy train will be gone.

Adrian Peterson is getting a bad rap these days. Maybe he should stop hanging around women who make their living by having rich men's babies.

Great job, TMZ.

That information was available BEFORE you posted the goldigger's claims, but you chose to smear AP for some more attention before telling the truth.

Well, thanks to TMZ, we'll get to see these women try to siphon money from him for the next... I'd say six months or so. Way to go TMZ... dumb***es.

Stop taking to these woman. They are just gold diggers and getting knocked up is an alternative to getting a real job. Granted it takes two to make a baby, but to some women saying they are on birth control and they aren't is just part of the gold digger game. He paid her-NEXT
