A bombshell report from the Boston Globe's Spotlight team details the relationship tight end Aaron Hernandez had with his quarterback while they were both playing football at Bristol Central High School in CT.

The Boston Globe recently launched a six-part series that dives into the life of former National Football League player Aaron Hernadez.

Hernandez, who played three seasons with the Patriots, shockingly took his own life in prison and was diagnosed with a severe case of CTE in light of autopsy reports. Jonathan Hernandez declined to name who had molested his brother.

Jonathan Hernandez also said that their father beat them regularly when they did not live up to his standards.

Homophobic slurs were used "all the time in our house", Jonathan Hernandez told the Globe.

SanSoucie told the Globe that they got high on marijuana often, and strove to hide their relationship: "Me and him were very much into trying to hide what we were doing".

Jonathan went on to tell the Globe about how he ruled his family with an "iron fist", which many believe had Aaron hiding his sexuality. "All the time. Standing. This was not acceptable to him".

Aaron - who played for the Patriots from 2010-2012 - committed suicide while in prison in MA in 2017.

The newspaper's six-part series, the first installment of which was published Saturday, included details about Hernandez's childhood, sexuality and drug use.

"I remember he wanted to be a cheerleader".

Since Aaron Hernandez's prison suicide in April 2017, SanSoucie has come out as gay and thinks his late friend and teammate would be proud of him.
