Newsweek Spills on Hernandez's Secret Gay/Bisexual Sex Life
Not long ago, a report crossed the cables from Newsweek that suggests Aaron Hernandez had a gay lover in prison. Moreover, the Newsweek report suggests he had a long term male lover.
Now, there is speculation that his sexuality may have been a factor in a murder case.
As you may know, Hernandez was found dead in his prison cell in the early hours of April 19, 2017.
According to Newsweek:
“One of the notes left by Hernandez was to his prison boyfriend, who is now on 24/7 suicide watch, multiple law enforcement sources confirm.
Hernandez’s sexuality would, of course, not be relevant save for the fact that an intimate relationship he allegedly had with a male former high school classmate was at the center of the investigation into Lloyd’s murder.”
Ernest Wallace, a co-defendant in the Lloyd murder case, told detectives the victim had called Hernandez a “schmoocher,” which was taken by Hernandez and his companions as a gay slur.
Wallace was also recorded saying during a jailhouse visit with Tanya Singleton, Hernandez’s cousin, that he would not have helped Hernandez get rid of the murder weapon—a crime for which he is now serving a 4½-to-7 year sentence on accessory to murder charges—if he had known Hernandez was a “limp wrist,” multiple sources say.
Singleton was accused of helping Wallace discard of Lloyd’s murder weapon and was later sentenced to two years probation with one year under house confinement after pleading guilty to criminal contempt for refusing to cooperate with investigators in Boston investigating the double murder.
Prosecutors in both Bristol and Suffolk counties said Hernandez had promised to set up a trust fund for Singleton’s children for her silence but never did.
But there is apparently more. According to Newsweek, there was a longtime male lover.
“Motivation to Murder?
Hernandez’s alleged longtime male lover, the high school friend, was interviewed extensively by authorities after Lloyd’s murder, and was forced to testify in front of a grand jury.
Law enforcement officials also say Hernandez moved a large amount of money into three accounts shortly before his arrest for the Lloyd killing: one account was for his fiancée; a second was for his daughter; the third, where the most money was moved, was for that friend.
Hernandez’s secrets went well beyond his sex life, according to court testimony and police records. His brushes with the law for extreme acts of violence began when he was playing football at the University of Florida. In 2007, Hernandez, then 17, was identified as a person of interest in a double shooting.”
Just days before his passing, GPB reported that Hernandez's attorney had high hopes the former New England Patriot star could be released from prison on an appeal.
According to the Newsweek report, the former football jock may have killed Odin Lloyd in order to keep secret the fact that he was gay or bi.
Now, The Daily Mail is reporting that Hernandez was planning his suicide for weeks. Here's a blurb from their piece:
“The former football star even gave away most of his personal belongings to fellow inmates and covered the floor of his cell in soap, according to a well-paced source. If he lost his nerve he wouldn't be able to save himself as he would slip around and not be able to land firmly on his feet.”
