According to Fansided, text messages between Peterson and the child’s mother, were released with the athlete talking about the beating he gave his son with a switch.
“Got him in n*** once I noticed. But I felt so bad, n I’m all tearing that butt up when needed! I start putting them in timeout. N save the whooping for needed memories!” one message allegedly said.
In another message, Peterson says he knows that he went overboard with the punishment after noticing the marks left on the child’s body.
“I got kinda good wit the tail end of the switch.” he said. “Never do I go overboard! But all my kids will know, hey daddy has the biggie heart but don’t play no games when it comes to acting right.”

Dishin’ out whoopin’s ain’t what it use to be!
Disgraced former Ravens running back Ray Rice has spoken publicly for the first time since he was fired on Monday in the wake of the release of an explosive video showing him beat his now wife Janay unconscious.
Rice, who not only got cut by his team but was also indefinitely suspended by the NFL told ESPN via telephone that he was being ‘strong’ for his wife and the couple were in ‘good spirits.’
‘I have to be strong for my wife,’ said Rice. ‘[Janay] is so strong. We are in good spirits.’
‘We have a lot of people praying for us and we’ll continue to support each other. I have to be there for [Janay] and my family right now and work through this.’
After Rice spoke, he handed the phone to wife Janay who said: ‘I love my husband. I support him. I want people to respect our privacy in this family matter.’
Rice also texted CNN and said: ‘I’m just holding strong for my wife and kid that’s all I can do right now.’
Earlier on Tuesday Janay, 26, had posted a statement on her (now-private) Instagram account in which she professed her love for her husband and condemned the media for their coverage of the incident which she called a ‘horrible nightmare’.
The couple married in March of this year, just a month after the now infamous incident in Atlantic City that was captured on security cameras.
Former Baltimore Ravens player Ray Rice’s wife Janay Palmer-Rice has come forward to issue an open statement on her husband being suspended indefinitely by the NFL. Mrs. Rice jumped onto her Instagram page Tuesday (September 9) to address the drama.
“I woke up this morning feeling like I had a horrible nightmare, feeling like I’m mourning the death of my closest friend. But to have to accept the fact that it’s reality is a nightmare in itself. No one knows the pain that the media & unwanted options from the public has caused my family. To make us relive a moment in our lives that we regret everyday is a horrible thing. To take something away from the man I love that he has worked his a** off for all his life just to gain ratings is a horrific. THIS IS OUR LIFE! What don’t you all get. If your intentions were to hurt us, embarrass us, make us feel alone, take all happiness away, you’ve succeeded on so many levels. Just know we will continue to grow & show the world what real love is! Ravensnation we love!,” Mrs. Rice wrote September 9. (Janay Palmer-Rice’s Instagram)
This report claims the NFL may have known about the footage all along and may have reportedly turned a blind eye to seeing the footage earlier this year.
Commissioner Rodger Goodell made his disciplinary decision in the dark, which raises the question … Is that the way he wanted it? Sources connected with the Revel Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City tell TMZ Sports … NO ONE from the NFL ever asked for the video inside the elevator … video that was compelling enough to get Rice instantly fired. (TMZ)
Details of the Baltimore Ravens’ decision to release Rice surfaced Monday (September 8) afternoon.
Ray Rice won’t get another chance with the Baltimore Ravens after all. He might not get a chance anywhere else in the NFL either. The Ravens announced they’ve terminated Rice’s contract Monday afternoon, hours after TMZ.com posted video of the embattled running back punching his then-fiancée during an altercation at an Atlantic City hotel in February.

Talk about ride or die!
“It is with great sadness that I announce the death of my mother, Joan Rivers,” Melissa Rivers said in a written statement today. “She passed peacefully at 1:17 p.m. surrounded by family and CLOSE friends. My son and I would like to thank the doctors, nurses, and staff of Mount Sinai Hospital for the amazing care they provided for my mother.”
Melissa Rivers added that she and her son, Cooper, “have found ourselves humbled by the outpouring of love, support and prayers we have received from around the world. They have been heard and appreciated. My mother’s greatest joy in life was to make people laugh. Although that is difficult to do RIGHT now, I know her final wish would be that we return to laughing soon.”
The comedian will be honored at A FUNERAL at Temple Emanu-El in Manhattan this Sunday.
“It is a terribly sad day for ALL of us,” Rabbi Joshua M. Davidson told ABC News in a statement. “We mourn with her family, friends and all those millions to whom she brought laughter and joy.”
Joan Rivers will truly be missed. She’s an ICON!
First the Fat Boys breakup…NOW THIS?????
Apparently some old school beef got thrown back on the grill because things sure got heated between these artists backstage at the Concord Pavillion this past weekend, where both Sisqo and Kyle were booked to perform with their groups Dru Hill and Jagged Edge, respectively.
Hate to say it, but you would almost expect this type of drama from the young artists rather than from two R&B guys who made major waves in the 90’s and early 2000’s. Oh well…in this case I guess R&B stands for Rhythm Bangin. Check out a clip of scuffle below:
