Oxygen is airing a documentary this weekend about former Patriots star tight end Aaron Hernandez. During it they reportedly discuss his sexuality.
According to a college girlfriend Hernandez had a relationship with a man while in college at Florida. George Leontire, a gay member of his defense team, says he was clearly gay.
Via TMZ Sports:
“This man clearly was gay,” Leontire said … “[He] acknowledged it. Acknowledged the immense pain that it caused him.”
Leontire added, “I think that he also came out of a culture that was so negative about gay people that he exhibited some self-hatred.”
Hernandez never spoke publicly about being gay. He was engaged to a woman, Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez, and they had a daughter together.
