Any way you slice it, this situation just keeps getting sadder.
We previously mentioned that Adrian Peterson met his 2-year-old son for the first time in the hospital right before he passed away. Well, that stirred up rumors that maybe he wasn’t the father at all.
Sources say that the Minnesota Vikings player found out two or three months ago, and wanted to help the mother out. At that point he made efforts to be in his love child’s life, and was even planning on meeting him in a few weeks.
However, the boy’s life was tragically taken from him before that could happen.
Peterson will be flying back to North Dakota for the young boy’s funeral this week, and says he’ll be staying in touch with the mother.
If only he’d known he was the father sooner, this whole thing could have been avoided.
It’s just horrible.
