Aaron Hernandez's fiancee Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez spent two days talking to pseudo-therapist Dr. Phil about her relationship with the disgraced star, as well as his crimes and suicide. "It's just not him", Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez shared in an interview on Dr. Phil.
The fiancée of Aaron Hernandez is disputing rumors that the former New England Patriot was gay.
Jenkins-Hernandez, who in a previously aired portion of the interview said she does not believe Hernandez committed suicide, said she does not speak with Hernandez's family.
She says she doesn't believe Hernandez and fellow prisoner Kyle Kennedy were lovers or even close friends.
Jenkins-Hernandez said she doubted the official account that it was a suicide. During the first part of the interview, Jenkins-Hernandez said she thought Aaron's suicide was a hoax when she first got the call that he had killed himself.
Besides the note to Jenkins-Hernandez, authorities recovered one addressed to the athlete's daughter.
Jenkins-Hernandez also took exception to the fact that Army insisted that Hernandez had left a $50,000 watch for Kennedy before killing himself.
"I had no indication or any feeling that he was [gay]", Jenkins-Hernandez said. A judge recently erased the 2013 murder conviction against him because he died while he was appealing.
Jenkins-Hernandez said in the interview that a third note was addressed to his lawyers. It's just not the Aaron that I know. I did see that it was addressed to Shay instead of you know babe or bae, the way he would refer me as - that was a little odd to me. "We're in 2017. There are so many people that are coming out", she said. "Aaron never, never necessarily ran from a situation", she said.
"I don't know who this Kyle Kennedy is", she said.
"I thought that this was some cruel person. playing a trick on me", she said.
Not only did Jenkins-Hernandez shoot that theory down, but she doesn't seem to believe that there was any type of romantic relationship between her fiancé and Kennedy. I allowed her to view her father's body in private, just us, and say her last goodbyes. "He was very positive, so excited to come home". Hernandez didn't talk about him, she said. They said the third letter was not left for Kennedy.
"My client believes one of the letters was written to him", Kennedy's lawyer, Larry Army, Jr., said during a news conference in April. "I hope her and make sure she's OK", she said.
