Dennis SanSoucie claimed to have a sexual relationship with the late football star while the two were teammates in high school. SanSoucie told the hosts of the Boston Globe Spotlight Team's new podcast, Gladiator, that he was surprised to see the Patriots player covered his body in tattoos as he got older.
"He wasn't someone that seemed like he was going down the road to get all those tattoos," SanSoucie explained. "But I realized as someone who is bisexual now, too, he had to go through different routes to try and show his authority because Aaron was an alpha."
Aaron's decision to hide his alleged hookups with men from the world may have been because of his father Dennis's strong opposition to homosexuality.
Aaron's brother, Jonathan Hernandez, described the extreme measures Dennis Hernandez took to ensure his sons were straight.
"'Faggot'was used all the time in our house – standing, talking, acting, looking," said Jonathan. "It was the furthest thing my father wanted you to even look like in our household."
Jonathan said he and Aaron were taught how to not look "feminine."
However, those close to Aaron, sometimes saw another side of the 240 lb. wide receiver. As RadarOnline.com readers know, Aaron's former Patriots teammate, Brandon Lloyd, claimed he talked about "gay sex" in the locker room.
