On Monday it was revealed by multiple news outlets that the man they were claiming to have been Aaron Hernandez’s prison lover is named Kyle Kennedy.

The allegations that Hernandez was bisexual has been put forth as a possible motive for the murder of Odin Lloyd, the crime for which Hernandez was imprisoned for committing.

On Tuesday, Hernandez’s lawyer Jose Baez stated that any claims about Hernandez being gay or having a prison lover were completely false.

Hernandez’s lawyer, Jose Baez, tells TMZ Sports, “Rumors of letters to a gay lover, in or out of prison, are false. These are malicious leaks used to tarnish somebody who is dead.”

Now comes news that Kennedy and his family have issued their own statements regarding the suicide of Aaron Hernandez.

Kennedy’s family’s statement reads…

“Our thoughts right now are with Aaron Hernandez’s family, as well as our son. We understand the broad public interest in this case, but we ask for privacy as we learn the facts.”

Kennedy’s statement via his attorney is as follows…

“My client is obviously saddened by the loss of his friend, Aaron Hernandez. I met with him briefly today at the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center and I am just learning the facts surrounding the situation.”

“The facts are that my client and Mr. Hernandez were not cellmates. Mr. Hernandez was housed in a single cell.”

“Also, a letter was left to me client but neither I, nor my client, have seen the letter. We will be requesting that the letter be turned over to my client as soon as possible.”

“Lastly, my client is no longer on suicide watch. The decision to move him to a protective unit was a standard precaution, but my client did not and has not exhibited any dangerous or risky behavior as a result of this situation. I will be meeting with Kyle more in the coming days and will provide updates as information develops.””

It will be very interesting to see if the contents of this letter, which each side has differing opinions on regarding its existence, ever becomes public knowledge should it turn out to be real.
