Oxygen To Premiere ‘Aaron Hernandez Uncovered’ Documentary To Detail His Double Life, Reported Gay Lifestyle & More [Trailer]

Posted March 11, 2018

The Aaron Hernandez story is one of the most shocking and devastating tales in American sports history, probably since OJ Simpson.

Around the time of his death in prison after being convicted of murder, rumors began swirling about alleged male lovers and that the NFL star was secretly living a gay lifestyle, although the world only knew him to be heterosexual.

Well now in a new two part special, Oxygen will uncover and dive into that and so much more with personal accounts from his own family and friends on ‘Aaron Hernandez Uncovered.’

Aaron Hernandez was a sports phenom who was destined to be one of the greatest tight ends in NFL history. He was adored by millions of fans, had a woman who loved him, and riches beyond his dreams until a series of events led him down a dark path to destruction. This two-part special goes beyond the headlines and takes a deep dive into Hernandez’s dual life through never-before-seen interviews, vivid eyewitness accounts, testimony never presented in trial, startling new medical revelations, and a secret that tormented him—a secret that some may have gone to extremes to keep.

“Aaron Hernandez Uncovered” is the untold true story of NFL superstar Aaron Hernandez from the viewpoint of those who knew him best. With unprecedented access to Shayanna Hernandez, Aaron’s fiancée and the mother of his only child, along with lead defense attorney Jose Baez, friends, former teammates, detectives, the prosecutor, the sheriff, and the journalists who covered his story extensively, this gripping two-part cautionary tale strips away the layers to answer the many questions left behind after Hernandez’s tragic death.
