The paper quoted somebody within the Chiefs' organization as saying, "The mother believed that there was an issue over whether [Belcher] was the father." And, "She said he [believed he] wasn't necessarily the father of the child."
A source within the Kansas City Police Department confirmed the paternity dispute to the paper. But an officer told The Post that it isn't investigating who the baby's father is, saying it was a civil matter.
If Belcher's paternity becomes an issue, it could have serious financial ramifications for the 3-month-old baby. According to The Post, Zoey, as Belcher's beneficiary, would receive $108,000 annually over the next four years, $48,000 the next year and $52,000 each year until she's 18 or 23, if she goes to college. There is also a $600,000 life-insurance policy and a $100,000 retirement account to be paid out, along with $200,000 for each of the four seasons the linebacker played. Additionally, the Chiefs set up a fund for Zoey.
