Aaron Hernandez's fiancée Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez was just as surprised as everyone else when she woke up on April 19 and learned that Hernandez had committed suicide.
Jenkins-Hernandez opened up about Hernandez’s death during a recent interview with Dr. Phil—which is set to air in two parts next Monday and Tuesday—and she revealed that her last talk with Hernandez had "nothing to do with suicidal thoughts."
So when someone called her the day he died to tell her what happened, she initially thought they were trying to trick her.
"I thought it was a hoax," she said, "that this was some cruel person playing a trick on me."
Elsewhere in the interview, Jenkins-Hernandez also addressed the rumors about Hernandez's sex life and spoke on if she believes Hernandez killed himself so that she could collect his salary from the Patriots, which Hernandez seemed to suggest in the note he wrote to Jenkins-Hernandez.
The interview will air in two parts this Monday and Tuesday on Dr. Phil
