Legal Whispers: Jovan Belcher’s Daughter’s Guardianship Decided
Kansas City Chiefs player Jovan Belcher shot his girlfriend and then shot himself, leaving their 3 month old daughter Zoey Michelle Belcher in a legal battle for guardianship over her.
A probate judge in Missouri has appointed her first cousin Sophie D. Perkins as the legal guardian of Zoey. She is Zoe’s mom Kasandra Perkins’ first cousin. Jovan’s mother had been trying to win custody of Zoey and Jovan’s estate.
TMZ reports that court documents say, Zoey will inherit Jovan’s estate — which has been valued at $799,119.85. She’s also reportedly set to receive at least $1,000,000 from the NFL … plus $1.2 million from a life insurance policy.
