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. Adrian Peterson's girlfriend Ashley Brown,
