...(A) person claiming to be close to Belcher has revealed in a series of e-mails...(to Deadspin.com)...that..."They have been arguing for quite some time and had separated 2 weeks ago...He had brought her and the baby back home..." The friend adds that many of their recent arguments focused on Perkins failing college classes Belcher paid for and quitting her retail job, as well as telling Belcher that she was leaving him and would find a lawyer to "get as much money as possible" from the football player...
"When it comes to prescription medication, it is unclear from my perspective whether it was diagnosed and authorized by the team or not...However, I know he was under the influence of narcotics for pain...(and) Jovan drank A LOT. On a nightly basis...in public and private.
"When it comes to his concussions; if you review the footage of the Cincinnati game he took a few hits to the head directly he was dazed and was suffering from short-term memory loss...He could not remember the events that had taken place prior to that game or what he had said to get Kasi to return home."
...(T)he NFL star was a member of a group which campaigns against violence towards women...
Once again, I'm saddened but not shocked. This is getting to be downright predictable...
