According to Kasandra Perkins’ friend, Jovan Belcher killed Kasi after accusing her of having an affair with Trey Songz upon her return from his concert in Kansas City on Nov. 30. How sad.
Kansas City Chiefs player Jovan Belcher murdered his 22-year-old girlfriend Kasandra Perkins after reportedly assuming she was having an affair with R&B singer Trey Songz. After shooting the mother of his child dead, Jovan drove to Arrowhead stadium and killed himself in front of his coach and general manager in Kansas City on Dec. 1.
“[Kasandra] and her girlfriends went to see Trey Songz and Miguel at Midland [theatre]. It was one of her first nights out since having the baby,” a friend of Kasandra’s tells MediaTakeOut. According to the source, it was Jovan’s jealous delusions that lead to both of their deaths, even though Kasandra never met Trey Songz.
“After the concert [the girls] went to the afterparty. She didn’t do anything wrong, she wasn’t with any guys, and was nowhere near Trey,” the friend adds. Jovan was reportedly so upset that Kasandra didn’t come home immediately.
“[Kasandra] left after getting a text from Jovan. And that’s the last we saw her.”
According to reports, Kasandra returned home and after Jovan accused her of having a relationship with Trey Songz, he shot and killed her.
Jovan Belcher Murder-Suicide: Kansas City Police Details
The incident took place after a related, earlier off-site shooting, a Kansas City police spokeswoman Darin Snapp told NFL.com.
“About (7:50 a.m), we got a call to a residence, in regards to a shooting, on the 5400 block of Crysler Ave,” Darin said. “We arrived and the lady there informed us that her daughter had been shot by her on-again, off-again boyfriend. The young woman was taken to a local hospital, where she died a short time later.”
“At about 8:10 a.m., we received a call to the Arrowhead practice facility in regards to a black male armed with a gun in the parking lot, and he matched the description of the shooting suspect,” Darin continued. “Officers arrived, saw a black man with a gun to his head, and some Chiefs employees. As the officer got out of his car, he heard a gunshot. It appeared the individual shot himself. He was transported to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.”
“We are cooperating with authorities in their investigation,” a team statement said, confirming the incident.
