Several months ago, the boy's mother had a paternity test done with an ex-boyfriend she believed to be the father, in an effort to collect child support.

When the DNA test came back negative, so she contacted the Minnesota Vikings star, with whom she had a sexual encounter several years ago.

Adrian Peterson didn't question the possibility he was the dad, but asked how he could help the situation and planned a trip to S.D. to meet the boy.

The running back was supposed to fly out to see them later this month.

When Peterson heard the news about the attack on the 2-year-old, allegedly by the mother's boyfriend, he dropped everything and flew out to Sioux Falls.

There, Adrian met the boy for the first time while he was on life support.

As for the suspect, Joey Patterson, Adrian has never met him.

is it really a shocker that a black man didn't know he was baby daddy to a kid? black men spread their seed everywhere, that's why blacks lead all races in aids. they don't like using condoms and the women love to get that seed because black women are all about getting pregnant so they can get govt assistance. this is a non-news story.
