Shayanna Jenkins, Aaron Hernandez’s former fiancee, is speaking out for the first time following the release of Netflix documentary series Killer Inside: The Mind of Aaron Hernandez.
The docu-series had the world talking, as It detailed the life of the late Aaron Hernandez. One thing that caught most viewers by surprise is the claims made about Hernandez’s sexuality. The series claims Hernandez had a sexual/intimate relationship with a man.
Shayanna Jenkins, spoke to Good Morning America on Wednesday and addressed the claims. She said, “You can’t describe someone’s sexuality without them being here,” she said. “Although I’ve had a child with Aaron, I still can’t tell you what he was feeling inside.”
She also explains she wished the late football player would’ve been honest with her, “If he did feel that way, or if he felt the urge, I wish that I was told,” Jenkins said. “I wish that he would have told me because I wouldn’t have loved him any differently. I would have understood. It’s not shameful.”
The docu-series also takes a look into an alleged murder that Hernandez was convicted of. The former New England Patriot, hung himself in prison. Jenkins makes it clear that she believes he was innocent.
