The sexuality of former New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez, who committed suicide on Wednesday morning, is under question. Two separate reports came out on Friday claiming he was bisexual and allegedly had a gay lover in prison.

Newsweek reported that several law enforcement officials directly involved in the investigation of the 2013 murder of his friend and teammate Odin Lloyd said it had something to do with Hernandez not wanting to be outed as a bisexual.

Limp wrist

Ernest Wallace, a co-defendant in the murder of Lloyd, said to investigators that Hernandez was a “smoocher” which is a gay slur.

When Wallace visited the athlete with Hernandez’s cousin, Tanya Singleton, he was recorded as saying he would not have helped the NFL player get rid of the gun that Hernandez used if he had known the football player was a “limp wrist.”

The ex-New England Patriots player allegedly had a longtime male lover, a friend from high school, who testified before a grand jury. Before his arrest for the murder of Lloyd, Hernandez allegedly transferred large amounts of money to three accounts, one of the recipients was his alleged lover.

Prison note

Daily Mail reported that Hernandez left three handwritten notes before he hanged himself using a blanket. One note was for his fiancée Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez, the second to their four-year-old daughter Avielle, and the third to his alleged gay prison lover.

The gay lover’s name was not identified, but he is believed to be the last person the former athlete talked to before he hanged himself. The man is now under suicide watch. Jail personnel found the notes beside a Bible that was opened to John 3:16 which reads: “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

He wrote the same verse on his forehead using a marker.
