Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez thought her fiancee's death was a hoax


Roughly a month after his suicide, Aaron Hernandez's fiancee, Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez, will open up for the first time about the former NFL star's death in a two-part interview with "Dr. Phil" set to air May 15 and 16, the Orlando Sentinel reported. 

“Our last talk had nothing to do with suicidal thoughts,” she tells Dr. Phil McGraw.

In the wide-ranging interview, the episodes are expected to include "rumors about his purported secret romantic life, and if she thinks he killed himself so that she could collect millions of dollars."

The broadcast follows news that a Massachusetts judge vacated Hernandez's conviction for the 2013 murder of Odin Llyod, a charge he was serving a life sentence for before he took his life in a prison cell in April. 

A law in Massachusetts allows judges to erase criminal charges of those who die during the appeals process.

Jenkins-Hernandez and Hernandez never married, though she she did change her surname. They have a four-year-old daughter.

In the Dr. Phil interview, Jenkins-Hernandez opened up about the moment she found out the former Patriots tight end had killed himself.

 “I thought it was a hoax, that this was some cruel person playing a trick on me," she said.
