Jonathan Hernandez, the brother of the late NFL star Aaron Hernandez is claiming that his brother revealed his sexuality to his mother before he took his own life in prison.
“He’s like, ‘Mom you’re going to die never knowing your son,'” Jonathan said.
He continued: “Then all of a sudden they have this conversation and they’re both flooded with tears across from each other, and here the weight of what’s on my brother is being expressed, and for a mother to be looking at across from the scratched glass in the cell and seeing your son who you would never have anticipated him ever being in this situation.”
Jonathan added that he did not know Hernandez’s sexuality before he passed and that he had no idea whether or not that was the reason he murdered his close friend, Odin Lloyd.
“That’s one of the questions and, you know, head-scratchers that they still have regarding really this entire case,” he said on Dr. Oz.. “For me to sit here and say it was this or that, I can’t say. All you can do is look at the evidence that was provided.
During the interview, he also opened up about the abuse his brother faced at the hands of their father.
