Jenkins was engaged to Hernandez at the time that he took his own life in prison. The couple shared a daughter together. Avielle Janelle Hernandez is now 7 years old.
This will be the first time that Jenkins has spoken out on the documentary, aside from a post on Instagram. She took to social media following the Netflix release and thanked fans for their support during this time.
"I wanted to let all of you sweet sweet souls know I have tried to read every message sent on IG and through email (positive and negative) ... The amount of support and positive energy is again unreal!" Jenkins wrote. "I'm sure you will all understand how imperative it is to take some time away from social media."
Hernandez originally went to prison in 2013 for the murder of semi-professional football player Odin Lloyd. He was serving out a life sentence without parole for the crime prior to his death by suicide in 2017. Hernandez had been accused of murdering two men outside a Boston nightclub in 2012, but he was acquitted of that crime.0comments
He was also linked to a fourth murder after allegedly making comments to his former cellmate, but Hernandez was never tried for the crime. This revelation came to light as part of the recently-released book, Aaron Hernandez's Killing Fields. The identity of this alleged victim was not revealed prior to Hernandez's death.
