NFL will provide benefits to Belcher's daughter

NFL will provide benefits to Jovan Belcher's daughter
By JonTayler on Dec 4, 8:48p

Three-month-old Zoey will receive yearly payments for the next 18 to 23 years of her life as part of the NFL's collective bargaining agreement.

The daughter of former Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher, who committed suicide on Dec. 1 after murdering his girlfriend, will be financially supported by the NFL.

Three-month-old Zoey is the daughter of Belcher and Kasandra Perkins, whom Belcher shot early on Saturday before killing himself at the Chiefs' practice facility. She was at home when Belcher killed Perkins, then bent over her body to apologize and kiss her on the forehead. After that, Belcher kissed Zoey as well before fleeing the house.

According to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, as part of the NFL's collective bargaining agreement, Zoey's guardian or her estate will receive $9,000 per month over the next four years, which amounts to $109,000 per year. In the fifth year, she'll receive $48,000. From then on, she'll be given $52,000 per year each year until she turns 18 or 23, depending on whether or not she goes to college.

According to multiple media sources, the relationship between Belcher and Perkins had been strained, with constant arguments over things like money. The Chiefs were reportedly providing counseling for Belcher.

Zoey is currently in the custody of her grandmother, Belcher's mother.
(And yes - I know Laz posted it in the other thread. I hate mega threads.)

Why does she get 1.3M because her dad was a murderer and killed her mom? I'm glad this little girl will be financially sound and at least have a great trust fund set up for her for when she turns 18 but...I just, I guess I don't see why?

I'm not trying to be insensitive I'm just wondering why she's entitled to this money from the NFL?

Does this make sense or do I just sound like an asshole?
Is that her fault?

Ok. That makes sense to me I suppose.

I was honestly just curious and trying to get an answer...I had just figured she'd be the prime beneficiary to the estate left behind, didn't realize she'd be getting payments until she was 18-23 from the NFL.

I wonder if she has any sort of financial protection from the guardian, or if the guardian can do what he/she chooses with that $9K per month?

Never said it was her fault.

I was just curious, and I never thought of it as a 'life insurance' type of deal. So my question was answered. Carry on.

I was wondering about that myself. I'd be a little nervous she might end up with someone who will just leech off of that money and not use it specifically for the girl.

shes essentially going to be set for life but at the cost of never having a mother or father during her childhood, teen, and young adult life.

so

it's pretty much

would I rather be poor and have two parents

or

be rich and have no parents


I'd take the first every time over 100k a year. Grandma cant teach her the same stuff mom and dad could have.

I'm sure there would be stipulations in something like that. Typically it can only be used for education, medical, and for the benefit of the child. I would think the guardian would have to get such things approved by a trust company.

I would assume that the guardian will have total control of the money untill she is old enough to be responsible with it or untill she turns 18. The courts would trust the guardian to do the right thing with the money in Zoey best interest & I would trust the same.

judging on who mom and dad were in this case

if I were her I'd take grandma and the money, especially since she'll never have one living memory of mom or dad

Depends on if the guardian is the Trustee. If it's done through the NFL, I would definitely think they would put a trust company in charge. The guardian would have to get purchases approved.

when she gets old enough there will be more than enough documentation to see how bad that was, and it could cause some sort of trauma say if they wait to tell her until shes 15, 16, 17, whatever the ****

but I'm a cold son of a bitch

I love my mom and dad, they have both been great to me and have taught me many, many, many important lessons and I respect both of them greatly

but honestly how could you miss someone you never knew? How could you feel pain about someone you never knew? My parents got divorced when I was 4, have no memories of them being together, and I never once in my life was sad about them not being together because I never knew them together

so yeah...IMO this little girl, assuming she lands a rational guardian, sort of hit a baby jackpot

That's great. Doesn't replace her parents but financially stability will certainly help.
