He was playing the field.
Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher had a boozy dinner with another woman and spent the night at her apartment before he went home, fought with and killed his girlfriend, and then ended his own life in a practice-facility parking lot, sources said yesterday.
After dinner and drinks Friday night at a local tavern, the former Long Island high-school star took the woman, Brittni Glass, to her home, but spent the next several hours asleep in his Bentley outside her building, neighbors said.
After cops roused him from his drunken slumber at about 2:30 a.m., Belcher went inside Glass’ building and re-emerged about four hours later.
“I was with him that night, that’s it,” a reluctant Glass told The Post yesterday.
Belcher drove away at about 6:45 a.m., making the 10-minute ride to the home he shared with Kasandra Perkins, the mother of his 3-month-old daughter.
Cops said Belcher quarreled with Perkins and shot her nine times as his own mom watched in horror. Perkins’ body was found on a bathroom floor.
Original reports indicated Belcher was angry with Perkins about coming home late from a concert but that apparently is false since he was never home.
Early reports said Belcher flew into a rage after Perkins returned late from a Trey Songz concert at about 1 a.m.
But according to Glass and her neighbors, Belcher wasn’t even home then.
Residents said they had seen Belcher — who had a $1.9 million contract with the Chiefs this year — and his distinctive black Bentley at the building several times in recent months.
Glass said she and Belcher were not in a relationship and declined to say exactly where he slept.
Meanwhile, a new report said Belcher had been violent in a past relationship.
In 2006, while a grid star at the University of Maine, he punched his fist through a window because he was “upset with a girl,’’ said a police report obtained by USA Today.
Meanwhile, even more media buffoons continue to embarrass themselves with their ignorance about the Second Amendment.
