Adrian Peterson only recently learned he was the father of a 2-year-old boy in South Dakota … and met him for the first time Thursday while the boy was on life support according to.
Multiple sources connected to the situation tell us roughly 2-3 months ago, the mother of the child had a paternity test done with an ex she suspected to be the father, in an effort to collect child support from him. But the test turned up negative, so the woman went to Adrian with whom she had a sexual encounter several years ago.
Sources tell us a few weeks ago, A.P. started to plan a trip to South Dakota to meet the child for the first time and he was supposed to fly out later this month.
But when he heard the news about the attack on the 2-year-old, Peterson dropped everything and jetted over to Sioux Falls as soon as he could.
As for the suspect, Joey Patterson, we’re told Adrian has never met the guy.
