Adrian Peterson has seven kids by multiple baby mamas, ex-stripper Erica Syion says

adrian-peterson2While Adrian Peterson mostly received sympathy following the death of his 2-year-old son, there were some who used the moment to expose the truth about the Minnesota Vikings running back’s parenting and family life.

We noted last week that Peterson only recently learned that he was the father of the deceased child. The first time he met the boy was when the child was on life support in the hospital. The man who was initially believed to be the father, Bobby Ruffin, went on Facebook to blast the whole situation. Peterson has since been exposed for having multiple children to multiple women.

According to TMZ, here’s what Ruffin wrote on Facebook about all the sympathy Peterson received.

“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.”

That’s the story of Peterson’s 2-year-old son, who died after being beaten by the mother’s current boyfriend. Ruffin was the mother’s ex-girlfriend. The mother’s current boyfriend, Joseph Patterson, is the one accused of beating the child. The woman who was the boy’s mother is Ashley Doohen, who lives in South Dakota. You can see her below:

Most people in the public only knew about Peterson having two children: Adrian Jr. and daughter Adeja. The now deceased son was the third child most learned about.

In a 2009 E:60 profile, Peterson shared that he had two children who lived with their mothers in Texas. He said at the time that his daughter was four years old.

TMZ reported that Peterson had a fourth child most didn’t know about — a 3-month-old daughter living in Minnesota. The mother is said to be a waitress at a popular Minnesota club.

That’s four children from four mothers.

Another woman, Erica Syion, emailed Media Take Out on Tuesday to question Peterson’s parenting and say the running back has multiple children. She says she is the mother of Peterson’s second child and oldest son, a boy named Anthony. That’s five children from five mothers (Erica’s son is likely the second child to whom Peterson was referring in the E:60 profile).

Albert Haynesworth’s Baby Mama Drama

Washington Redskins defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth is being sued for supposedly abandoning Silvia Mena, a stripper from Brooklyn whom he allegedly impregnated. Mena claims that Haynesworth dumped her and refused to talk to her after he learned that she was pregnant in February.

To say I’m surprised would be a lie. Haynesworth has already showed us his selfish, “all about me” attitude on the football field this year by skipping out on his team’s OTAs. If Haynesworth can’t manage to be there for his teammates, why would we expect him to be there for his pregnant ex-girlfriend?

Now I understand that the questions will circulate whether it’s actually his child and whether he said he’d support her as well as other things. But it’s not like Haynesworth is hurting for money — he just signed a $100 million contract in 2009. Are you really telling me that he can’t afford to take an ex-girlfriend to the doctor? Something just isn’t right about this story.

If Mena wins her lawsuit against Haynesworth, he could potentially owe her $10 million. Wouldn’t it just have been smarter to take the woman to the doctor and get a paternity test when the child is born? If it’s not his, he has no financial obligation. If it is, then maybe they could have worked out a better deal. I guess we are going to have to wait for all the details to unfold but Haynesworth looks like he might be getting screwed on this one.

Antonio Cromartie Has 7 Kids in 5 Different States and it’s a Distraction

So here I thought Travis Henry and his 11 kids by nine women was bad, and now I find out that Chargers CB Antonio Cromartie is hot on his trail. A nice Sunday feature on Cromartie in the San Diego Union-Tribune talks about all the work he’s doing this offseason to try and have a great year on the field. In addition to the hip injury Cromartie played through all last year, we find out that Antonio was distracted by several off-field issues as well.

UPDATE: In this video, Antonio Cromartie has a hard time remembering all eight of his children’s names.

All throughout the organization there were whispers that the then-24-year-old’s head was not right. But sitting down between workouts last week, Cromartie acknowledged a less-than-focused drift through the 2008 season.

“Last year my head wasn’t in there,” Cromartie said. “I was dealing with my kids and their moms. It had my mind somewhere else.”

There are a lot of directions to be pulled when you have seven kids living in five states. Cromartie has been named in at least five paternity suits in the past two years.

Just another reminder when you’re wondering what the heck is up with a player when he’s not performing well that they can be bothered by everyday problems just like us. Divorces, family problems, paternity issues — it all wears on a man! I just hope the former Sporting News magazine cover boy might consider wearing that cup of his every day of the week, not just Sundays.
