Aaron Hernandez’s fiancee says he wasn’t gay

When former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez committed suicide while in prison, his conviction for first-degree murder in 2015 in the death of Odin Lloyd, a semiprofessional football player who had dated the sister of Hernandez’s fiancee, was vacated.
Judge Susan Garsh, a justice of the Superior Court in Bristol County, cited longstanding precedent when it came to vacating the convictions of defendants who have pending appeals, saying in her ruling that she had no other choice.
Hernandez’s fiancee Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez was on Dr. Phil on Tuesday, the second half of a two-part show, to discuss Hernandez’s death, his conviction and what all of it meant to her and the couple’s daughter.
Host Phil McGraw asked Jenkins-Hernandez if Hernandez killed himself so she could collect $6.5 million from the Patriots, which could be available since his conviction had been vacated. Prior to his death, Jenkins-Hernandez said in an affidavit that his estate was worthless.
“That I don’t know,” she said. “I think anything’s a possibility, but I don’t know what this was for. If he was sitting right here, there are tons of stuff I would ask. I can’t speculate on what he was thinking. It’s unbelievable to me. I don’t believe any of it and I don’t believe that was the cause.”
After the suicide, rumors came out that Hernandez had a lover in jail. McGraw asked Jenkins-Hernandez if that were true.
“The Aaron that I know, no. I got no indication that he was such,” she said when asked about rumors Hernandez was gay. “He was very much a man to me. It’s hurtful. Whether it’s true or not, it’s not something I saw.”
McGraw then said that another prisoner named Kyle Kennedy was rumored to be his lover.
“I don’t know who this Kyle Kennedy is,” she said. “Aaron never mentioned him.”
Kennedy’s lawyer said, following the suicide, that Hernandez had written Kennedy a letter. Jenkins-Hernandez disputed that claim. She said there were three letters: one addressed to their daughter, another to her and one to Hernandez’s lawyer.
“No, that’s not accurate,” she said in response to Kennedy’s lawyer. “There’s nothing for Kyle Kennedy.”
