Aaron Hernandez's fiancée Shayanna Jenkins appeared for an interview with Dr. Phil McGraw, with episodes aired in two parts -- Monday and Tuesday -- to open up about the ex-NFL player's suicide death last month. Jenkins, who has a child with Hernandez, made some shocking claims during the interview, including raising doubts over her fiance's death in his prison cell at the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley, Massachusetts, on April 19.

Here are some of the highlights from the Jenkins interview.

1. Jenkins said during her appearance on the Dr. Phil show that she doesn't think Hernandez's death was a suicide. She hinted at foul play despite authorities confirming the cause of death, adding that Hernandez "was very positive."

“I spoke to him the night before and he was so, you know, ‘Daddy’s going to be home,’ and ‘I can’t wait to sleep in bed with you guys,’ and ‘I can’t wait to just hold you and love you.’ I just know the feedback that I was getting from our last talk had nothing to do with suicidal thoughts.”

2. Jenkins also raised doubts about the investigation into Hernandez's death, saying the findings didn't seem "believable." Jenkins said she believed the letter left behind by Hernandez "was a note of love," but the way he addressed her in his final letter was unusual. When asked if the handwriting on the note belonged to Hernandez, Jenkins said: "(It) was similar, but I feel like, again, you have nothing but time in there so I feel like it's easily duplicated or could be."

I did see that it was addressed to Shay instead of you know babe or bae, the way he would refer me as - that was a little odd to me. But as far as the content, he seemed to be his loving self.

3. Jenkins denied claims that Hernandez had intimate relationships with other men before his April suicide. Hernandez and Jenkins discussed the rumors but the former New England Patriots tight end denied the gay rumors. Reports about Hernandez being gay resurfaced after his suicide when reports claimed that one of the three suicide notes the 27-year-old left behind was for his gay prison lover. However, it was later revealed that the letter was for his lawyer Jose Baez.

I had no indication or any feeling that he was such. ... He was very much a man to me. I don't know where this came from. It's embarrassing, in a sense. It's hurtful, regardless if it's true or not. It's just not something that I saw. It's not something that I believe. It's just not him.

4. McGraw asked Jenkins about Hernandez's financial conditions and the possibility of him receiving an estimated $6.5 million from the New England Patriots. While talking about who should be getting Hernandez's money, McGraw asked if it should be his daughter Avielle Janelle Jenkins-Hernandez. She also responded to McGraw's question about her being the trustee of the estate.

I don’t think there’s anyone better.

5. Jenkins said she is glad she never looked inside a package that prosecutors said most likely contained the gun that killed Odin Lloyd. Hernandez was facing life in prison without parole for the 2013 murder of Lloyd. However, a little-known legal provision cleared him of the charges following his suicide.

I don't want to know anything that can haunt me, in a sense. I'd rather be in the dark with a situation like that.
