We're getting a glimpse into the life of Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher months before he killed his girlfriend and committed suicide. Jovan had another girlfriend, who he sent a text message saying he "would shoot" his longtime girlfriend, Kasandra Perkins, "if she didn't leave him alone," according to Christina Vendel of the Kansas City Star. He previously told her that Perkins “knew exactly how to press his buttons and make him angry”, and that she “threatened to take all his money and his child if they split up.” At the time, the other girl probably dismissed as Belcher just venting, but it turned out to be a very ominous sign. After he killed Perkins and drove to the Stadium, he told GM Scott Pioli, "I'm sorry, Scott," "I've done a bad thing to my girlfriend already. I want to talk with (linebackers coach Gary) Gibbs and (coach) Romeo (Crennel)." In an effort to diffuse te situation, Pioli called both coaches againts the wishes of police. "You're taking the easy way out!" Crennel told him, before he knelt behind a van and shot himself. Crennel told police that Belcher missed a team meeting weeks earlier that he blamed on Perkins, who didn't come home the night before, leaving him to watch the baby. He thought the couple had “trust issues” and Perkins expected “a better life” with an NFL player.
