Aaron Hernadez’s fiancée Shayanna Jenkins denied reports that the late NFL wide receiver was gay or bisexual. Jenkins made the statements in the second part of a 2-part interview with Dr. Phil on Tuesday.
Hernandez, 27, took his own life in his prison cell in April.
Jenkins, who has a 4-year-old daughter with Hernandez, says reports that her fiancé shared his bed with other men was “embarrassing” and “hurtful” to her.
She said she didn’t believe Hernandez had an affair with 22-year-old prison inmate Kyle Kennedy, as reports suggested, because Hernandez was “very much a man” to her.
Jenkins also told Phil she didn’t believe he committed suicide. “It’s not the Aaron I know,” she said.
“I want answers,” said Jenkins, calling for an independent investigating into Hernandez’s death.
A coroner ruled the cause of Hernandez’s death was suicide by hanging.
