Adrian Peterson's wife Ashley Peterson

UPDATE 10/06/2014: Either Adrian Peterson's wife Ashley Peterson is a kind and forgiving woman, or the couple has a wide open relationship. 6 children. 6 women. 2 states. 1 wife.

In an in depth article in the Minnesota Star Tribune covering the life of formerly squeaky clean Minnesota running back Adrian Peterson, the shine is clearly off the apple. In the expose, the paper reminded the world of the Adrian Peterson having 6 children with 6 women, all while dating, engaged or married to his wife Ashley Peterson.

In some of the more salacious details, includes a story about an orgy in 2011.

The 38-page police report details a night of drinking, arguing and sex that involved the running back, two relatives — including Peterson’s brother, a minor — and four women, in various pairs. One of those present, Chris Brown, a Peterson relative who lives with him in Eden Prairie, told police that he paid for the room using a company credit card for Peterson’s All Day, Inc.

As the night wore on, the report says, one woman who said she knew Peterson previously became upset when she saw him having sex with another woman. She started an argument that lasted at least an hour. According to the report, when she told him that she was “emotionally attached to him,” Peterson reminded her that he was engaged to another woman and had a baby.

Not much more to say here.

UPDATE 09/12/2014: Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson has been indicted on charges that he beat his 4-year-old son with a switch over the summer, resulting in multiple injuries to the child. The child was visiting Peterson in Texas during the summer, and the injuries were identified at a routine doctor's appointment when the child returned home shortly thereafter. The child's mother, who does not appear to be Adrian Peterson's wife Ashley Peterson, has worked with law enforcement during the investigation.

A series of text messages allegedly from Peterson shows no remorse for the actions, only remorse for the outcome of additional injury than intended. The same sentiment was repeated during police investigations.

Additional details, which are admittedly difficult to read, are available here. The indictment comes less than a year after another of Peterson's sons passed away, allegedly as a result of child abuse.

Adrian Peterson has been deactivated by the Vikings in advance of their game with the Patriots this weekend. No further discipline from the NFL has been rendered as of publishing this update.

UPDATE 07/23/2014: One might think the better part of a decade would be enough for Adrian Peterson's girlfriend Ashley Brown to become Adrian Peterson's wife Ashley Peterson.

According to multiple reports, including confirmation from AP himself, the two tied the knot recently after pictures surfaced at a recent Minnesota gala where both were rocking new bands. The couple has been together since his days in Oklahoma, and while there have been breaks, remained relatively consistent since then. Adrian has 6 children, only one of whom is Ashley's.

Congratulations to the newly betrothed!

UPDATE: 10-11-2013: The media is reporting that a child, reportedly Adrian Peterson's 2 year-old son, was killed by the boyfriend of the child's mother, Joseph (Joey) Patterson. Adrian Peterson's father, Nelson Peterson, has confirmed that the child is Adrian Peterson's son. Patterson, who is 27, was charged with aggravated assault and aggravated battery and police have confirmed that the child's injuries were consistent with assault and "severe head injuries". Though unconfirmed by police, Adrian Peterson himself has confirmed his son's death via several Twitter posts. Multiple sources, including TMZ, are confirming that the child was NOT Adrian Peterson Jr (pictured). It isn't clear as to whether Adrian Peterson's girlfriend Ashley Brown was the child's mother, or whether Ashley Brown is even still Adrian Peterson's girlfriend. There are unsubstantiated rumors that the child was the product of an affair that Peterson had with a woman named Ashley Ann Doohen.

Look, we can't lie. There is virtually NOTHING online about Adrian Peterson's girlfriend Ashley Brown (well, actually there's a ton about AD, but nothing about Ms. Brown). Adrian and Ashley Brown are rumored to have been high school sweethearts, staying together through college, and remaining together today. Adrian lives with his daughter Adeja and one of his brothers, but is not clear if Ashley lives with them. Though it's not published anywhere, it may be safe to make the assumption that Ashley is the mother of Adrian's 4 year old daughter Adeja.

  7. theoneforhim

    Has fun with him in houston TX. She wasnt there though....

  8. Nika

    she was cuter with the more natural look (aka minus the horrendous and typical weave). Anyway, love AD. He's the man.

  9. Jessica

    They met in college at OU... and no she's not the baby mama either...

  10. Roland

    I went to college with AD. Ash is his high school sweetheart but not Adeja's mama. AD got a chick prego after Ash posted for Playboy "Big 12" edition. They broke-up and AD got a off-brand trainer chick prego. It's believed she poked holes in his condom. FYI: AD lives with 2 of his brothers in Eden-Praire, MIN.

  11. Roland

    Oh yeah. Adeja doesn't live with him, she lives with his mom Ms.Bonita & Mr.Jackson, AD's stepdad. Derrick and Eldon, both his brothers, live with AD. Ash is in grad school @ OU. They met in high school, after a Palenstine game. They saw either other on campus @ OU the next year. FYI: Ash didn't like football, she only watches to support her brother & AD. I think that's why AD liked her. Look out for my boys @ OSU, Rus Okung & Dre Sexton!!

  12. Kiannah

    He has been with this girl for years. She lives in Eden Prairie with him & his uncle.

  13. k'lee

    they should so break up!!! i want him!!ugh!

  14. Intheknow

    They met in college after his freshman season. He had his daughter from his then highschool sweetheart. So she is not the mother of either of his kids.

  15. Truthtella

    She is not the babymomma. He has one daughter by a high school girlfriend. Adrian met Elizabeth in Oklahoma where she is from and where he was playing college football.

    She is currently a model, doing commercials and getting into acting. She has a place in L.A. where she works and she sometimes stays with Adrian in Minnesota where he works. She has her own, though, so she doe not live with him

    they started stepping out more so we'll probably hear more about them. I'm not sure if this is because she's getting more into the business, but I assume so. She's the one living in L.A. Those pics are old--she looks way better with the new "Rihanna" haircut.


  16. PCM

    They have been dating fir yrs! Met the
    both in Minn a few yrs bck thru mutual friends! Great couple! But she's not the mother of his daughter!

  22. ron

    do Adrian know whom his real father is

  23. k.m.

    to Lisa Tyler please get your information correct. ad only has 2 kids. I am his cousin.. blood cousin...

  24. Rain

    K.m. guess you didn't know about his baby who was murdered. That makes three! Wonder how many other babies of his you don't know about, cousin, lol! I wonder how many other babies he has HE doesn't even know about? If Ashley marries him its only because she's a gold digger and planning on taking him to the bank. No real woman would stay with some one who acts like him!

  25. Eve

    Get married, be happy and stay together. You two compliment each other.

  26. pp

    You go girl. Congrats to you and your husband. LPeople needs to mind their own business. Keep on doing what you do, and that's putting God first!!!

  27. So Sorry

    AP claims to be a devout "Christian" and yet he's had what, 4, 5, 6, 7 children with how many women and how many of these did he marry? Very sad.

  28. B. Smith

    I would not let him parent a dog!

  29. S.R.

    Ashley he used you for convience and you endured it, and now AP decided to marry you. Now Adrian needs you more then ever to be by his side. I don't care how much money a man makes, I would be so ebarrased for anyone to know a man made a fool of me. I'm glad he made an honest women of you but for how long with his seual appetite.

  30. HMMM

    Well cousin thought he only had 2 kids, remember what happens in the dark will come to light. One child passed RIP) from abuse and now he's scarring his child abuse.. Ashley has to be hurting inside for him to make a fool out of her.. Wonder how many times he had cheated on her that he didn't get pregnant. ..

  31. pooh bear

    Ashley is not Adeja's mother nor was she Adrian's high school sweetheart. Adeja resides with her mother in Texas, she does not stay with Ashley and Adrian. People need to get their facts straight.
