After the death of Aaron Hernandez, there have been questions around the former NFL player's sexuality and whether he had a male lover behind bars. Hernandez's fiance is putting those allegations to rest, denying that the former New England Patriots player was gay or bisexual.
"It's just not something that I saw. It's not something that I believe. It's just not him," Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez shared in an interview on Dr. Phil.
"It's just not him," she said. She goes on to call the rumors about his sexuality "embarrassing" and "hurtful."
Hernandez committed suicide on April 19 by hanging himself in his prison cell.
