Yet another of Minnesota Vikings star running back Adrian Peterson’s baby mamas has surfaced, meaning that the 28-year-old player has fathered at least five children by four different women.
Peterson allegedly fathered a child with Erica Syion, a former dancer at a “gentleman’s club” in Dallas, TMZ reports. Peterson and Syion’s son is now four years old.
According to sources familiar with the situation, Peterson met Syion in 2007 while she was working at a dancer at an undisclosed strip joint in Texas, TMZ reports. However, their relationship has fallen apart “in the past few years,” and Peterson is no longer seeing Syion.
TMZ’s sources added that Peterson does maintain contact with his 4-year-old son, visiting the child when his schedule allows. Syion remains the boy’s primary caretaker, but reportedly entered into a “financial arrangement” with Peterson; the Vikings star covers Syion’s living expenses, as well as his young son’s education. TMZ obtained several photos of Peterson with alleged baby mama Syion and the couple’s 4-year-old son, which can be viewed here.
If the reports about Peterson’s latest baby mama are true, it would mean the 28-year-old has fathered at least five children by four women, TMZ reports. In addition to the 4-year-old son he fathered with Syion, Peterson has fathered two children during his relationship with his current girlfriend, an infant daughter by a waitress in Minnesota, and the 2-year-old son who was allegedly beaten to death by Joseph Patterson last week.
