Prosecutors released an excerpt of a suicide note left by disgraced NFL player Aaron Hernandez to his fiancée Shayanna Jenkins.

Hernandez, who committed suicide in his prison cell in April, wrote “YOU’RE RICH!” to Jenkins in a letter that was first revealed by NBC Boston.

“Shay, You have always been my soul-mate and I want you to live life and know I’m always with you,” Hernandez wrote in the letter.

Hernandez’s letter suggests Jenkins knew in advance he would take his own life behind bars.

“I told you what was coming indirectly! I love you so much and know you are an angel … Tell my story fully but never think anything besides how much I love you.”

The letter asked Jenkins to use some of her financial windfall to take care of 2 men whose names were redacted by prosecutors. “Those are my boys,” Hernandez wrote.

The 27-year-old former wide reciever left 3 suicide notes next to a bible in his cell. The notes were addressed to Jenkins, the couple’s 4-year-old daughter, Aviele, and Hernandez’s rumored prison lover, Kyle Kennedy.

Hernandez was serving a life sentence for the shooting death of his friend Odin Lloyd in 2013.

Hernandez’s attorneys petitioned the state to throw out his murder conviction so Jenkins can receive millions in salary and bonuses owed to him by the New England Patriots.

  • YES I SAID IT…

    I know right lol! They need to just let this shiit go! Dude was a murder rather he had a male lover or not!
    He was a fool with money, a thug with talent, and a killer with a motive so I can careless about he got going on or had going on. All I can do is pray and hope for the best for his little girl.

  • che’lint

    Can she possibly be rich after all of this?

  • Rachel

    Maybe but you can bet whoever “his boys” are will definitely sue her for their cut if she don’t give them a decent amount of $$.

  • che’lint

    His boys I hope he didn’t name names. This doesn’t seem like the end of this story especially with $$ involved. I fear for Shay and her daughter. I pray I am wrong.

  • rayne215

    He might also have a life insurance policy. If you pay high enough for a certain time limit it can include suicide

  • bemetoo

    The letter was to his lawyer

  • Bee jaay Cee

    Whether..not rather. You’re welcome!

  • V Dubb

    Why?? Just why

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    And, how do we know he wrote this?

  • TheWildChild
  • Wayup!

    Right.. Right… Right….??

  • BTweekin

    Now All The Conspiracist Like Why Did They Post It.? Shut Up! Y’all Hate Facts!

  • BTweekin

    His Family & Friends Know. Its Not For Us To Know.

  • Quitedeliteful

    I hope the girlfriend, the daughter and his mother will get this money. This will be the only good that comes of this mess….

  • the guest

    He left her in a predicament with that kick back to his boys. He must have really been an initiated gang member because he sounds devoted until death.

    Grown men who say things like “my boys” and “my n—as”, I can’t take seriously. Grown men supposed to only say “my wife and kids” and if their friends are Grown men they understand that.

  • Naomi

    They had handwriting experts analyze it with his previous handwritten letters and they confirmed it was he who wrote it.

  • Naomi

    YESSS!!! “Someone else did it.” “It was an inside job”
    *Letters are posted*
    “Why do you need to post this?” “This is something that should be private”
    Prosecutors were like, we need to get you guys to shut up LOL

  • ThinkingOutLoud

    The ‘my boys’ reference may be to his deceased cousin Tanya’s two young boys.

  • dontgetblocked

    This man murdered at least one person and you’re more concerned about his loved ones. The child is innocent but the girlfriend knew what he was into. I’m more concerned about the VICTIM’S family.

  • BacktolurkingIgo

    Lil bow wow knew already but then again she knows everything. I wish the best for his baby as this is one of his reasons for ending it. Shayanna will get money telling his story too.

  • BacktolurkingIgo

    Yeah she was promised trust funds

  • jazzysmith12

    wish you wasn’t married.i love a woman with your heart

  • jazzysmith12

    Rip Odin Lloyd .May he rest in peace.

  • AG

    Does the money go to Jenkins because of their child?

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    But I read somewhere that she may not see any of that money because the victims families had civil cases

  • Diva4lyfe

    I don’t believe she knew he was going to do that. I hope she saves and invest the money for her and the baby future. Now them 2 homeboys if he wanted them taking care of he should he done that before he went in cause I dern sho wouldn’t.

  • Jay

    LOL!. That’s a dude. And if I’m not mistaken he gay. You should rethink your whole life.

  • leapyearpisces

    Right! This is why I side eye Doug Christie. Water seeks its own level. I think there is something behind that laid-back demeanor. I look at it like this, Jackie ain’t shat, so Doug levels of not being shat has to be at least at a level that matches hers for him to have been with her for so long. I have had some not good dudes, but NONE of them would stay with a woman who treated their child the way Jackie treats her first born. Devils and angels don’t typically marry, and when they do, it doesn’t last long. The two cannot co-exist. I say all of this to say, Aaron Hernandez fiance’ wasn’t shat just like he wasn’t. But karma follows the law of 360, not 180.

  • bella28498 .

    and that heaux better take care of his boys…..

  • bella28498 .

    if your man say in a last request what to do then do it……if not you a piece of shyt

  • EMILY POST

    Why did she do besides have a baby by a confused man to be a heaux?

  • Malcom Flex

    Ride or die chick of the year. She rode for a down low doing heavy duty beard duty. Too bad he didn’t put a ring on it. Babymama status is so common now.

  • Malcom Flex

    I see Jenkins with a reality show. Those club/stripper shoes she wore to the funeral showed what she’s about.

  • Jussjess25

    Exactly

  • Jussjess25

    Your right

  • Interracial_NOT

    The person you’re responding to is hiding behind a black face like they always do. Can’t you tell?

  • datATLboi

    In their state it’s a law that if anyone dies while still in litigation they are officially pardoned of the crime b/c it hasn’t been ruled on as of yet. He knew this, and therefore filed to have his case looked at again and during that process he committed suicide making him NOT GUILTY in the eyes of the law in death. She’s entitled to everything

  • TooMuchTea

    She knew! Just like she knew she was destroying evidence when he told her to take out the trash after he killed Odin.

  • TooMuchTea

    Exactly! Let’s not forget the real victims.

  • TooMuchTea

    And she lied on the stand.

  • TooMuchTea

    I hope the families of the 3 ppl he killed get the money.

  • IamAllnatural

    She had a ring, they were engaged. She probably had to pawn it, though.

  • IamAllnatural

    Wow that’s a good question.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    I get that part but even when you are not guilty victims can still sue in civil Coirt and I read somewhere that the guy he killed that was his friend his mom had a case going and it was nearing a settlement. Victims families can always sue your estate in civil court. Remember when OK was found not guilty Nicole and Ron family took it to civil court and won and OJ had to pay them

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    So this dude is supposedly a holy roller quoting the Bible yet he commits what most people refer to self-murder?

    *sigh*

    *sigh*

  • JJSPLAYHOUSE

    Sooooooooo you had a lucrative professional career, decided to throw it all away, then kill yourself so your child can get the money you could have received WITHOUT the murder rap? Oh, ok that makes perfect sense.

  • T Kenny

    another dude just like ti who the women in his family are better off without.. yes, i said it

  • Maxima

    So if this is true, and reportedly the third note was for his MOTHER, NOT his supposed lover, then they won’t get a dime because it was ruled that he had no drugs in his system and clearly he was committing murder for financial gain, thus, FRAUD.

    He was too slick by a half, that is why he went to prison, f&cked up his career and killed himself. But it shows just what a psychopath he was… only a psychopath would be so callous toward life.

    Why wasn’t dude just happy being one of the best tight ends in the history of the game (so they say), having a beautiful daughter, dedicated girlfriend?

    You don’t miss the water, till the well runs dry

  • Maxima

    She can hold it in trust for the child, it is going to the child.

  • datATLboi

    smh I just don’t understand how ppl think money is gonna bring that person back. The public shame should be enough to teach these people a lesson. I wouldn’t want his family to pay emotionally and financially because of his mistakes.

  • Maxima

    Ooooo, this is one of those screenshot this great comment. But you know, like I said before, I met her on several occasions and she doesn’t come off as a ghetto ‘hood rat, she was very nice, quiet. I thought to myself, WTH was she doin’ with him???

  • Maxima

    But if he intended to commit suicide for financial gain, that is fraud. It may not happen. Psychopaths, after a reign of terror, usually do themselves in, in more ways than one.

  • Itzgoingdown

    Really? lol

  • the guest

    I cant believe he told her to take care of his boys. His boys are supposed to look out for his fiancée/wife and child.

  • the guest

    True.

  • the guest

    I pray so.

    I hope he wasn’t talking about grown employed able bodied men.

  • bella28498 .

    thar was last wish and you nevvvvvverrrrr know why he made that request.

  • Malcom Flex

    Engaged isn’t married no matter how too many black women pretend it is. Married is married. Something tells me she will keep money. She showed it at the funeral.

  • Malcom Flex

    Cause he was down low gay and looking out for his boys.

  • Malcom Flex

    He’s a piece of shit for not making her his legal heir, the wife.

  • the guest

    Exactly.

    Engaged is not married.

    Separation is not divorced.

    Married is Married.

  • the guest

    I think he was young, immature, and gang affiliated.

  • AG

    Oh ok. Thanks.

  • HTOWNPinkPuffingHerbal

    LIES! He did not kill himself, this whole thing is a BIG LIE…Lord may his soul rest in peace. STILL PRAYING FOR THE BABY GIRL and FAMILY. ??

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    I’m glad you said it, what does a “widow” (or something close to it) look like taking care of two grown axx men?

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    I agree, I think Doug and Jackie live double lives. I think he has a boyfriend somewhere and I think she has a girlfriend somewhere…..something unusual balances them…

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    I hope the money is set up in a trust for his daughter when she turns 25

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    Sounds like he should have been more specific.

  • kekeb

    This is still sad to me. The whole situation is sad

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    The only person I feel sorry for in this whole situation is the daughter. She’s going to grow up and find out all this shameful stuff about her father. So sad.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Hernandez’s letter suggests Jenkins knew in advance he would take his own life behind bars.

    Um……who wrote this? It sounds dumb, as a person “committing suicide” pretty much knows they are going to take their life- hence why it is called suicide.

    And what suicidal person going to write “You’re Rich) to someone? Even if they are doing it for financial gain, they are NOT going to imply that they are doing it for the family to get money.

    This is what happens when people try and create false narratives and outright lies- they go to far and the truth starts seeping out.

  • Diva4lyfe

    Ok grown axx men. No matter what the last wish was now I see if it was his family and she knew something pertaining to them. But everybody always got something to say different. I can be your ride or die all day but my main concern is for my kids and making sure we are good.

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    Boom! He shoulda been more specific if he wanted mofo’s to have something.

  • Diva4lyfe

    U can call me what you want but at the end of the day my child comes before 2 grown a$$ men who he asking me to look after. Anyway he was wrong for even asking her to do that but at the end of the day she do what she want but me the answer is he?? to the naw. Like I said in a previous unless it was a family member and I knew of some personal issues he was trying to help them with. Now you can go on about ur bizness with the piece of shyt comment you don’t like what I said that’s on u.

  • Diva4lyfe

    True. Then wanna be on my comment calling me piece of shyt. no it be the side chick doing the dumb ish. but the real one will make sure the kids and family straight.

  • http://thesinglewhitefemale.com Fefe

    I think he was referring to his nephews. His cousin Tanya’s kids. Tanya passed away from cancer I believe.

  • bella28498 .

    he left millions…..i dont think she has anything to worry about

  • IamAllnatural

    What would’ve been the difference if they were married? People act like a ring will change a person’s behavior or guarantee they will honor their vows.

  • Maxey Ross

    his nephews are the boys.
