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.

    SMR: because Hernandez was “very much a man” to her.
    Cue gay mafia in 3,2,1

  • PussyGal0re

    He was "very much on the DL" it is also why he killed Odin Lloyd. He knew of Hernandez's gay escapades. Open your eyes woman. Most men are bi and have slept with another man or bj. Fact! Not saying it's acceptable, but it is happening in alarming rates. Especially the ones you don't suspect.There is a secret, gay world that men don't allow women into. The straight ones may not participate but they are aware of it.

  • LeGard JoJo

    That is so speculated & assumption. Prison myth...not all men in prison are gay.

  • LeGard JoJo

    and how do you know this??? were you in the bed with them?

  • cherrypie

    I was thinking the same thing. Like....how do you know????

  • LeGard JoJo

    Why you all sit up here and assume on speculation of a dead man sexuality I have to question are you gay?

  • Junkanoo

    Isn't he bisexual if he fancies both sexes , this story is losing steam, he's dead and it's not shocking to learn some men like sex with both men and women

  • Miany

    I wanna know why her relationship with Aron's family is so strained.. what is the REAL tea Shayanna??... dont nobody curr what you think bout his sexuality, if he was gay/bi, you'd likely be the last to know.. Tell me bout what you DO KNOW.. Tell me why his momma dem dont fugg with ya

  • Genia W-m

    She said his family didn't support him during the second trial and she didn't like that. This is one of those ride or die chicks. There's a reason his own family backed off. They knew him better than she does.

  • Dem Moore

    What is to much man to be gay....i see gays as men....if he works to pay his bills takes care of his responsibilities, I would consider him a man....so many people think having sex with a women makes a man a man Ive had sex with a few "men" and after everything was said and done i consider a few of them more like delicate flowers then men.

  • more

    Those ride or die. Chicks irk Me to no end. They will ride until their entire youth is gone

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Trying to put myself in her shoes... If I ever heard/found out (rumors or facts) that my gf was cheating on me with a man, I would be devastated & hurt too. This man is no longer here on Earth and he's getting dragged further causing more pain to his family. Does it really matter or make any difference to the public if he was gay/bi? Why is this coming out publicly now that he's deceased?


    What I don’t understand is… Why is it so hard to believe that he could have been g*y or bi??? Listen I know it’s hard to believe that a man who you had a child with and that you knew half of your life could be swinging over on the other side of the fence but U never know what a person is capable of doing.. But wait, didn’t she say she asked him b4 if the rumors she had heard was true about him being g*y and he said no!? If you had to ask the question then what does that tell you???

    All I know is this rumor could be true but whatever it is, who cares, we are missing the big picture here that this dude was a killer no matter what his s*xual desires and or preferences were. Anyway, my grandma always told me everyone has 2 faces, the one we see and the one they don't want us to see, so believe what U see and always question what U don't see.

  • Genia W-m

    I saw this interview and she's another ride or die chick who could witness a murder in front of her and still stay with him. Those gang, mafia type girlfriends don't care. She said she lived for him and her daughter. She's estranged from her sister (who dated the victim). She's 'created' family for her daughter to call aunt and uncle. I wonder if she's estranged from her mother too? I hope Dr. Phil interviews her sister too because she said she didn't know how her sister felt about anything. You've got to be kidding. Estranged yet there was never a discussion or argument? Odin dated her sister and he was Aaron's best friend. She said her sister would come over--it was so casually too.

    Hate to burst her bubble but her man was bisexual and a murderer. It was reported he was bisexual in high school too and he killed his friend so it wouldn't be revealed. She scoffed about the prison lover.

    She did what she was told. The video showed her struggling with a box he told her to throw out. Said she never looked inside and I believe her. She knew he had bad friends but said she 'chose her battles.' Also, Aaron told her he wasn't gay or bisexual. There's more to come out about Aaron that she didn't know yet she knew him since elementary school. I can't believe she never knew about his gang affiliations.
    Just at tragedy all around. So talented yet cursed from the environment he couldn't extricate himself from.

  • KIm

    Shayanna Jenkins obviously you are in denial about everything with your fiance. You may not want to hear this but your fiance is not only a murderer but he's also a fruit bag . Accept it.

  • kennedy campbell

    the "if you had to ask the question" is a hard one because people salt you all the time. I believe it's possible he was because I've been around too many down low types. but I've also been around too many Europeans who's masculinity isn't like many americans. goodness and some nerds fool me too. lol

  • Genia W-m

    No speculation. It's been reported he was bisexual in high school and that was the motive for Odin's murder. Odin knew but Aaron didn't want it revealed. Before his murder Odin sent his sister a text about who he was with too.


  • klwbaby


  • disqus_qBRzT0AQZd

    agreed. Who cares if he was gay... he was charged with murdered and now he's dead...who he slept with me that prison... i truly do not care about.

  • Genia W-m

    It came out in the trial.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Exactly. Who he shared his bed with should be neither here nor there, the focus should be on the crime he committed... murder. Personally, idgaf who sleeps with who long as it's legal & consensual, of course. No pedo's!

  • Taylordanes

    YES THIS! I have many friends from other countries who mannerisms would be considered questionable here... thing is they are more manly than some of these bi gangsters and football players

  • Cheese eggs

    Never assume that you know everything about someone that you're sleeping with.

  • Taylordanes

    This man took a life.. lets stop all the speculation. If anything honor the victim...

    And let's not act like these football players don't swing the other way! Ya'll remember Kerry Rhodes and how his assistant put him on blast... Well this sprite could care less and married his sweet arse .....



  • Genia W-m

    Not only that, his name was mentioned in 3 other murders, going back to 2007. He even started shooting at some men after one of them spilled a drink on him. Not surprising since he was in a gang. Gangs don't recruit adults. They recruit children so he'd been in a gang for years. He was quite a violent individual.
    What I don't get is his fiancée knew him since elementary school yet feigns knowing any of this about him.

  • Andbenitez

    If you pay attention to what people say, you can learn a lot about their mentality. I watched both shows and it's CLEAR that she's the type of person who prefers to 'bury her head in the sand'. Her answer to many of Dr. Phil's questions was that she 'preferred not to know' or 'didn't want to know'. Dr. Phil asked her why she wasn't on good terms with the Hernandez family & her sister (Odin Lloyd's fiance). Her answer to both questions was that she didn't know why, really didn't care to know why- but it doesn't matter, because she has other family & friends who are supportive of her. A woman like this wouldn't want to know her man is bisexual, and would prefer to remain in denial. She is a 'look the other way' type.

  • Coy little wink

    Why is she talking to Dr. Phil? She is about to get millions she don't need Phil's coins

  • Miany

    Thank you... I was wondering why.

  • Yoni7

    That millions was start up money. Get those coins. Folks want you to talk? Pay me.

  • Genia W-m

    I don't think DP pays his guests. They might get a free hotel room and dinner but that's it.

    There's $6.5 million. Odin's mother is suing his estate and who knows who else will come forward to sue. Those families of the men in the car that he shot, killed and the one he wounded should sue too. The gang life never ends well.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Right? And then married a woman to cover up his DL activities http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2013/04/nfl-kerry-rhodes-shouldnt-defend-his-sexuality-as-kissing-buddy-photos-surface/ . She had to marry him for his money. She's a professional beard I guess!

  • Genia W-m

    And said she doesn't plan to tell her daughter UNLESS she asks. Well her peers will tell her and it probably will be embellished!!

  • Guess Who

    To quote Donald Trump when talking to Comey, "Make this go away!"

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    Umm didn't know Kerry got married..that pic tho ?


    True dat! The only person who should care is his fiancee and if she doesn't want to believe then we should not care

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    Yeah, I'm lowkey over talking about it too.

  • Genia W-m

    It's not that he was gay. It was that he committed murder to hide that gay lifestyle!!! His high school lover was forced to testify in court!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    My statement was not a comment on his sexual orientation just that her claim that there aren't masculine gay men is going to lead her to being dragged on social media and beyond.

  • tt

    Soooo let me get this straight, no pun intended, he was "IN FACT" gay because that's what the news reported, and we all know the news is ALWAYS truthful right? Just asking if we know for sure.

  • Quitedeliteful

    At this point she is going to go to the grave saying the man was straight. She probably doesn't want to feel like she got duped by a DL man and she doesn't want her daughter to hear stories about her father's sexuality as she grows older... I wonder what the letter to his jailhouse sweetie said...

  • Please Stop The Madness

    where there is SMOKE there is fire. So not only has YOUR own fam cut you off, HIS family has cut you off too. Sounds like a character flaw female Bow Wow has that makes people gravitate AWAY from her. For them folks to not fukk with you and you got that baby and she the ONLY living piece of him speaks volumes. You can SHUT UP now girl. You didn't want to talk at his trial. Almost perjured yourself with your vague ass answers but now you on Dr. Phil. Sit down and hush nah.

  • Please Stop The Madness

    other people have reported it who are not media affiliated. who cares enough to make up lies about Aaron Hernandez while he was still living? when he was a freshman in college and prior? he was still unknown then and people were saying it. not everything is a conspiracy folks.

  • Nessa

    The news is full of sh*t! Their job is to sale gossip and lies because, well it sells!! People are easy to manipulate..

  • Please Stop The Madness

    don't drop the soap. you weigh all of 155 lbs and my football playing big self is now gone to the sky. cant protect you for the rest of your time here. told dude to literally stay up.

  • imright

    who cares about the truth when the lie is more interesting ????

  • SuperScooper1

    Why the hell is she still speaking publicly? She's just opening herself up to potential liability and civil suits! If she needs to vent she needs to see a counselor. Dr. Phil is playing her!

    Stop talking now and:


  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    She want that seven figure Dr. Phil check...

  • Taylordanes

    I agree however Michael Sam set himself up to get played. He should have just played ball....

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yup... dude done lost his celebrity jailhouse status and security since his pookie has gone to glory... Bubba gonna be like, can I talk to you for a minute????

  • Coy little wink

    He is not very reputable tho. She slumming it talking to him...

  • tt

    yes but how did this information come through

  • Blak

    the truth can be embarrassing. She should be embarrassed at her level of denial

  • Enoughsaid2020

    The manly one's are usually the gay ones. I hope she finds some peace.

  • Miany

    Hello there Please Stop The Madness...

  • Coy little wink

    Do you have a Y chromosome?

  • Carrington

    I saw this interview and this is not at all what I got. She actually said that anything is possible with respect to him killing himself. She said she had questions, but there was still a possibility that he'd killed himself. She said that she did not believe the guy who said that he was having an affair with him because she had never heard of him and that the guy said Aaron told him that he was thinking of ending it all and she said that if he was really his lover, why didn't he tell the guards if he cared so much. She also said that if he genuinely loved Aaron and was his lover, instead of reaching out to his daughter or her, he had his attorney send a message that Aaron said he could have his $40,000 watch.
    She also said that she didn't know if the gay rumors were true. That he had never given her any indication that they were, but that when she heard them she asked him specifically and he told her that it was not true. When asked if it were possible, she said that the man SHE knew was a man's man and wouldn't, but IF he were, with so many athlete's coming out, had he told her she would've let him live his truth.
    Not quite a denial in my eyes. She was actually open to the possibility of everything EXCEPT him being guilty.

  • AListDiva29

    He was found not guilty, so they may not be able to make a claim, but they can sue in civil court like Nicole Brown's family sued OJ!

  • AListDiva29

    She plays dub, but she's not too good at it! I guarantee she got pregnant on purpose to catch that NFL $, and thought she'd be set for life, so she's in denial about a lot of things! Time for her to move on with her life and get a damn job like everybody else! The Patriots aren't going to just hand over that money to her, they will fight tooth and nail, and it could be years before she see's a dime! That's if she can even afford a lawyer to fight against them!


    Poor lil tink. I feel embarrassed for her.

  • LeGard JoJo

    That is not true. Odin owed him money, Believe what the media tell you...lost soul

  • LeGard JoJo

    That's a crock of lies...Odin owed him money. Believe what the media tell you.

  • Tynamight

    WHO CARES IF HE WAS HOMOSEXUAL??? The MSM is trash. If I was Odin Lloyd's mom I'd be so upset.

  • Christopher Gibson

    I so agree. If he would've kept his sexuality to himself, he'd be playing in the NFL now. His little snowflake boyfriend hit the road too once no NFL checks were coming in.

  • 2telldatruth

    And Aaron would have known she would have stood by him regardless just as she did. Now that's loyalty.

  • Malcom Flex

    Chicks like that is why so many BW have hiv aids messing with down lows but lying to themselves.

  • LotusFlowerBombOne

    Why would Dr Phil give her seven figures? That doesn't make sense to me.

  • Please Stop The Madness

    Hey Miany! How are you?

  • starbright9449

    He wasn't too much of a man to not kill himself tho....ijs....

  • NeverSurprised

    Not to you or to anyone else. Daytime talk shows do NOT pay seven figures for an interview.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    All gay men are "very much a man." Otherwise, they would be women engaging in heterosexual sex with men. Duh!

  • dontgetblocked

    He was a murdering thug with sweet pants. She's more concerned about gay rumors than the fact that he was a killer.

  • Genia W-m

    Ok, so "I didn't ask, I didn't open, I don't know, something's possible, never heard of' sound open to you? She even said she didn't know how her sister felt about anything. She dated Odin for goodness sakes. They never had a conversation about anything??

  • Genia W-m

    Aaron and his lover even asked to share a cell!

  • Genia W-m

    Someone can be sued civilly.

  • NicoleZee

    Girl bye! She's just too ashamed to admit that she was in love with a gay man. She needs to be more worried about STDs and less worried about a dead killer. SMDH at these desperate in denial women that belong in a padded room!!!

  • Genia W-m

    I think he didn't want to hide. That's a difficult choice to make. If he was seen in public holding his boyfriend's hand then what?

  • lil goodie

    Bish... collect your Check and shut up...

  • Genia W-m

    After all is said and done I doubt there will be much left for her daughter or her. Lawsuits galore will come. He left a trail of violence.

  • Genia W-m

    Well that was not the motive the prosecutor gave. They said Aaron didn't want his lifestyle told to his girlfriend or to get out. Can you imagine how his teammates would've treated him? Worse than anyone owing him money.

  • NicoleZee

    Say it Malcolm!!! Sometimes our "gaydar" as they say might be off, but once you find out a man is gay and you're not into that, it's time to move on. Gay men hit on me all the time. I don't get it. What makes a gay man think that a straight woman wants him?? I have no problem with the LGBTQ community, but I'm not looking for gay dudes. Sadly, most men these days are either gay, married, or have a girlfriend and women feel as though they have to settle for that just to have someone. Hell naw!!! Being alone isn't so bad if those are my only options!!!

  • NicoleZee

    It's so hard to tell these days!!! Men marry women and procreate all the while secretly lusting for a man. Nothing wrong with being gay, but don't deceive others, just be yourself and be honest.

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Wow thank you for this point of view. It's seems to me she is trying to move forward ...., peace to her if that's the case .

  • NicoleZee

    That's what I don't get. I get that most men today have criminal records, but killing and harming people crosses the line. We are not talking about a man that stole bread from a store to feed his family, we are talking about a man that KILLED someone and she still stood by him, plus he was a closeted gay man. WTF??? I would have just killed him myself!!! Completely disgusted at the desperation I see these days.

  • 19awesomegrl97


  • 19awesomegrl97

    the issue should b less about being gay BUT the fact he took another man life...get ya coins & hush guh

  • Malcom Flex

    GM hit on you to use you. Down low black males are opportunists they use BW for: bareback anal sex, housing, funds, and beard duty. Notice the good looking DL BM with fug sloppy beards with a few out of wedlocks or real young DL's with older women, that pairing is rising.

    DL men tend to beat their women more than str8 men due to the distaste they have for their beards, same as pimps most are down low gay misogynists.

  • Quitedeliteful

    That's true! I forgot about that...

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    Being alone is better than being alone dead!!!

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    The so called manly ones

  • NicoleZee

    What about the straight men that use women for sex and money??? Men want free p***y but time a woman asks for anything, it's a problem. Not only is it hard finding a straight man, it's also hard finding a man that wants anything other than sex, and then the sex don't even be that good!! But yet they think they're God's gift to women in bed. I think people, straight or gay, tend to run into the same problems when finding a suitable mate. Seems like most people have a hidden agenda and no one is genuine or has character anymore. But like T.D. Jakes says, when you meet someone, you don't really meet them, you meet their representative!

  • NicoleZee

    Are there any straight single men left in the world??? Damn! And then, no one wants to date someone who looks like a rotting corpse, but most of the really good looking men seem to be gay. So, do we have to settle for the gross looking ones if we really want to find somebody??? Hell naw! Being single ain't so bad considering the terrible options women face!!!

  • AcutallyReally

    That's what she is trying to do. Do you see any tears on her face? I've yet to see this woman cry. I do believe he told her, directly, that he was going to do this. I look for her to bring a suit against the jail.

  • MistaO

  • Yoni7

    And that's HER prerogative. They can work to slum together.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Hot story in the press and will be for a long time. There are not too many sports stories like Aaron Hernandez. He had everything and lost it. The only few I can think of are Rae Carruth, O.J. and him who still resonate to this day. Sad to say Dr. Phil's team got hold of her quick she needs the money. Odia Llyod's estate will sue and she will need lawyers to protect what her daughter has.

  • Coy little wink

    This is MY opinion...why are YOU being so defensive?

  • Lovely

    I don't believe he was gay or bi-sexual.

  • datATLboi

    Too much MAN to be gay???!!!! LMAO da fugg that mean

  • Taylordanes

    Hahahahaha! I am married but enjoyed single life as well! Starts with loving you first!!!!

  • Taylordanes

    I think he enjoyed all the attention that came with it! All the interviews and articles and the same way the media lifted him in the next breath they tore him down ... #purposefully

  • Yoni7

    Defensive? Because I said it was HER prerogative? Nah son. Maybe YOU were a lil too worried about HER money and HER pockets. What she does doesn't change what comes in and out of mine. But whatever. I'm not here to debate what and WHO someone chooses to speak on in THEIR life. What works for her may not work for others. Good day, sir.

  • Coy little wink

    Nope...I don't feel any way towards her.... just don't care for Dr. Phil

    too much man? A man wouldn't go around killing people. Heffa please

  • Birdman24

    It doesn't make you less of a man when you kill someone. It makes you a bad person, but less of a man???? I do not understand that statement. And the guy was beating his girlfriends sister up regularly.

  • OP2

    What goes on in gangs or prisons stays in gangs or prison. -or do we call it gay for the stay??

  • OP2

    Liberals media are sneaky. Any other time, asking or questioning rather or not someone is gay, tranz, etc. is considered -phobia or anti- this and that!!

    Is the liberal media now giving the greenlight to not PC which allows the public to be able to ask folks rather or not they are gay and embarrassed by being that way, etc.?? -or is that only set preserved for days to drum up TV and magazine ratings to humiliate others or push an agenda only when they want to and only on their terms? Hypocrites!

  • Judas & GOD

    Well gay or not he in hell now.. ? ?

  • cocaína.maui.wowie

    I don't feel he was gay @ all my gaydar is highly accurate as well.. I don't know exactly what happened or who he killed , but he was a hood dude from the bricks to begin with, this prolly not the first time he pulled up and whacked somebody, he just was moving way too sloppy this time and had way too much to lose, if u got that much bread and status atleast get u a shooter smh , street mentality tho he just was the type that didn't play , I doubt this is the first time he dropped the tint on somebody. Sad he had to go out that way but shit getting life in jail is terrible, but shit u think he would have atleast wanted to live for the visits with his kids, jail sucks but ppl with $$ can pull a few strings I'm sure he coulda got him a little cell phone some weed and hooch and rode it out atleast to see his kid grow up idk ...sad
