Both Hernandez and Jenkins got engaged in October 2012 and had their first child a month later. But then, in June 2013, Hernandez was arrested and accused of killing semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd. In 2015, Hernandez was convicted of first degree murder and was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Hernandez committed suicide in April 2017 where he left a note for Jenkins saying:

“Shay, you have always been my soul-mate and i want you to live life and know I’m always with you. I told you what was coming indirectly! I love you so much and know you are an angel – literally! We split into two to come change the world! Your characteristics [sic] is that of a true angel and the definition of God’s love! Tell my story fully but never think anything besides how much I love you. This was the Supreme’s, the Almighty’s plan, not mine! I love you! Let (redacted) know how much I love her! Look after (redacted) and (redacted) for me – those are my boys. (YOU’RE RICH) I knew I loved you = Savage Garden.”
