The fiancee of the late Aaron Hernandez is speaking out for the first time since the release of a Netflix new docuseries on the life of the football-star turned-convicted killer, including rumors about his sexuality. She showed nothing but acceptance while addressing rumors of Aaron Hernandez's bisexuality, her first time ever doing so after his sexual orientation was speculated about in the Netflix docuseries Killer Inside: The Mind of Aaron Hernandez, which was released on January 15. "It's not shameful, and I don't think anybody should feel shameful on who they are inside, regardless of who they love".
Shayanna Jenkins said Wednesday she was unaware that her longtime boyfriend and the father of their daughter, former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez, was bisexual, but that she "would not have loved him differently" if he had shared the information with her.
Aaron Hernandez has been back in headlines over the past few weeks since Netflix debuted Killer Inside: The Mind Of Aaron Hernandez which explored his murder cases, his sexuality, and his CTE diagnosis.
Jenkins-Hernandez, who was engaged to Hernandez at the time of his suicide and shares a daughter with him, said he was "certainly a man to me". "I just- I wish I was able to tell him that".
"I would have understood", Jenkins-Hernandez said in a clip of the upcoming interview, via ABC News.
She continued, "I think it's a handsome thing".
"Do you still believe your fiance was innocent?"
"What was in the documentary that shouldn't have been, in your opinion?" asks Robach.
"You can't describe someone's sexuality without them being here", she stated during the interview-which aired on Wednesday's episode of Good Morning America.
However, she said through tears, "you start to feel for people that may be hiding inside how they really feel". She told jurors that the day after the killing of Lloyd, she removed a box from the couple's North Attleborough home at Hernandez's direction and discarded it. Authorities believed the box contained the murder weapon, which was never found.
