Aaron Hernandez’s Fiance Claims She “Knew Her Role” & “Learned to Keep Her Mouth Shut”

The Fiancee of fallen NFL star Aaron Hernandez took the stand today in her former fiance’s defense about the she testified in his double murder trial.

Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez revealed that when it came to questioning Aaron about the matter, she didn’t feel the need to, she went on to say that: ‘I learned to keep my mouth shut in certain situations,’ the mother-of-one had testified when asked why she never pressed Hernandez about Bradley being shot. ‘I played my role. Meaning I cleaned and I did everything else. There was no reason for me to ask any questions,’ she added.

‘I pick and choose my battles,’ she told the court. ‘There are some things worth arguing about. I didn’t see that as one of them. ‘He wasn’t my friend. We weren’t sitting on the couch watching movies and eating popcorn together.
‘It was a sad situation but why would I press on that?’
She added that she couldn’t say whether Bradley was Hernandez’s closest friend as her husband spent a lot of time in his ‘mancave’ in the basement while she ‘stayed upstairs and took care of my child. She also admitted that she had never been a fan of Bradley, and that she believed he was ‘bad news’ for her fiance.

On Thursday, Jenkins-Hernandez also testified about finding a gun in the ‘junk drawer’ of the North Attleboro home she shared with Hernandez. The mom-of-one said it did not ‘bother’ her that her fiance kept a gun at home with their child as she said many people kept guns for protection.
