According to reports, NFL-star-turned-killer Aaron Hernandez hid a secret longtime sexual relationship with his high-school quarterback. This, according to a report that also said the troubled late footballer was also physically and sexually abused as a Child.
Tight end Hernandez and quarterback Dennis SanSoucie, under their Connecticut school’s Friday night lights at Bristol Central High School, formed an unstoppable duo on the field — and while off, they also engaged in an on-again, off-again romance carefully shielded from public view, SanSoucie told the Boston Globe.
“Me and him were very much into trying to hide what we were doing. We didn’t want people to know,” SanSoucie told the paper.
Hernandez, who died by his own hand in prison, “had a feminine way about him” that his father, Dennis Hernandez, abhorred, the paper said. The often violent dad was fast to discipline his son for not seeming tough enough, according to Hernandez’s brother, Jonathan.
“I remember [Aaron] wanted to be a cheerleader,” Jonathan said. “My cousins were cheerleaders and amazing. And I remember coming home and like my dad put an end to that really quick. And it was not OK. My dad made it clear that … he had his definition of a man.”
“‘F—-t’ was used all the time in our house,” Jonathan told the paper. “All the time. Standing. Talking. Acting. Looking. It was the furthest thing my father wanted you to even look like in our household. This was not acceptable to him.”
As an adult, Hernandez told his brother in confidence that he had been sexually molested as a young boy — though more detail was not provided. One of Aaron’s criminal-defense lawyers, George Leontire, also said Hernandez confided in him about being sexually abused.
