Shayanna Jenkins, the fiancée of former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez and mother of his child, is finally breaking her silence. Jenkins is sitting down for an interview with ABC News’ Amy Robach to discuss the three-part Netflix documentary titled Killer Inside: The Mind of Aaron Hernandez.
The documentary focused on Hernandez’s life and downfall from stardom after murdering his friend Odin Lloyd. Hernandez was also linked to the double-homicide of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado in 2012 after a confrontation at a nightclub, before going on to play a full season with the New England Patriots and signing a five-year, $40 million contract extension.
Jenkins is unhappy with the way some things were portrayed, while directly commenting about questions surrounding Hernandez’s sexuality.
“If he did feel that way, or if he felt the urge… I wish that I was told,” Jenkins-Hernandez said in the interview set to air on Good Morning America. “I wish that he would have told me, cause I would not have loved him any differently. I would have understood. It’s not shameful, I don’t think anybody should feel shameful for who they are inside, regardless of who they love.
“You can’t describe someone’s sexuality without them being there.”
