This tragic story is starting to get more and more confusing! The NFL star, who had reportedly only met his son once before he was brutally beaten to death on Oct. 9, is being slammed by, Bobby Ruffin, a man who claims to have raised Ty his entire life.
Adrian Peterson son died on Oct. 11 after being brutally beaten by his mother’s boyfriend. But in the midst of all of this incredible loss, a man by the name of Bobby Ruffin, is speaking out, claiming that he raised the little boy and that Adrian was not even close to him.
Adrian Peterson Not The Father Of Little Boy Killed?
Bobby took to Facebook, according to MediaTakeOut.com to tell the world that he’s the one that raised little Ty. Although he admits that A.P. is the biological father, he says that he is the one that took care of Ty all the time and was there when he died.
So tired of this poor Adrian Peterson sh*t. Let me blow all your minds. The boy who died was my son. Yes A.P. he was the biological father but I raised him and he carried my name. Tyrese Robert Ruffin. I don’t blame AP for not really caring cuz him and I both found out recently who the biological father was. AP met my son for the first time yest when my son was already in coma. I was here today when we pulled the plug, not him. He was happily practicing and has no problem playing on Sunday. So yea this isn’t all out yet but I’m sick of the poor AP sh*t. He didn’t know or even meet my son. Sorry for the outburst but put yourself in my place.
Adrian Reveals Why He Played Football In Midst Of Tragedy
A.P. sent a text message to Laura Okmin of Fox Sports, and revealed why he wanted to play football to honor his son.
My brother passed the night before the combine and I decided to go through with it. The same reason why I will play this week. You may ask why? God wants good to come from it… We mourn and grieve but heaven had the baddest welcoming party for my son. That knowledge gives me peace. I’m still hurt and feel the pain of life, but I’m able to function because of the peace and joy of knowing my loved ones are in a much better place.
Town Holds Touching Vigil For Adrian’s Son
One of the people in the town, Jennifer Miklos, who who worked in Ty’s daycare, spoke out to the Argus Leader: “I can’t believe this is happening,”
