“If he did feel that way, or If he felt the urge, I wish that I was told,” Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez said. Aaron Hernandez’s previous life partner Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez is standing in opposition to the new Netflix narrative profiling the late NFL player, Killer Inside: The Mind of Aaron Hernandez.
Jenkins-Hernandez, 30, showed up on Good Morning America Wednesday and said that questions regarding Hernandez’s sexuality ought not to have been remembered for the narrative, which accounts for the competitor’s life, paving the way to his capture and suicide in jail in 2017.
“You can’t portray somebody’s sexuality without them being here,” she said. “In spite of the fact that I have had a kid with Aaron, I still can’t tell you what he was feeling inside, nobody can.”
In tears, Jenkins-Hernandez included, “If he did feel that way, or if he felt the urge, I wish that I was told. I wish that he would have told me because I would not have loved him any differently. I would have understood.”
