BOSTON — The fiancee of former NFL player Aaron Hernandez said he told her rumors that he was gay or bisexual were not true.

The second part of a two-part interview with Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez aired Tuesday on the “Dr. Phil” show.

Jenkins-Hernandez told host Dr. Phillip McGraw that Hernandez was “very much a man” to her and called the rumors “embarrassing” and “hurtful.”

She said she doesn’t believe Hernandez and fellow prisoner Kyle Kennedy were lovers or even close friends. She said Hernandez didn’t talk about him.

Jenkins-Hernandez said Monday she doesn’t think the former New England Patriots tight end killed himself last month, as authorities have said.

She said there was a suicide note for her and one for their daughter but there was no note addressed to Kennedy.
