Hernandez writes to fan: ‘Im a great dude’
His forced hiatus from the NFL isn’t keeping Aaron Hernandez from interacting with his supporters as the former New England Patriots tight end and murder suspect continues to respond to fan mail from behind bars.
Collin Imm submitted a full copy of a letter sent to him by Hernandez to Radar Online. The letter was sent on July 17, three weeks after Hernandez was arrested for his alleged involvement in the shooting of Odin Lloyd:
Hey brotha, let me start by saying thanks for the support, it definitely means alot! Everything happens for a reason in life in both of our situations. Whatever obstacles/struggles will only make us stronger. We actually have something in common because my dream as a kid was to play in NBA an is still my favorite sport but had a better chance in football! Never be down from your incident because “God” has a plan before all of us & that’s why I’ll never be down! Stay away from all negative people so your always there for your little boy cuz I miss by little girl terribly an my biggest fear of all is she wont know daddy! She said daddy first time or should I say “DaDa” and had to hear it from jail. Im going fine but wanted to write you and definitely wanted to say thanks for the support! Hope to hear back from you if wanted! Please keep this private is all I ask!———>
P.S. Im a great dude don’t believe all the neg. publicity please!
*Media is the Negative of the fame! Stay up and keep a smile on that babys face & Be there for him!
Thanks again brotha!
The daughter that Hernandez mentions is Avielle Janelle, a child he had with fiance Shayanna Jenkins. Authorities suspect Jenkins of hiding the gun used to kill Lloyd and the issued warrant claims that she “made overt attempts to hide evidence, render assistance for suspect to elude law enforcement and to hinder and mislead.”
This is not the first letter that Hernandez has written to fans while he’s been locked up. TMZ previously released two other letters penned by Hernandez in which writes about everything from the loss of internet to the fact that his incarceration is all part of God’s plan.
