Aaron Hernandez requested multiple times to cell with other inmates he called his “brother” and “heart,” newly unearthed prison letters show.

The five letters, obtained by the Boston Globe, are written to the Inner Perimeter Security staff at Souza-Barnowski Correctional Facility in Shirley, where the disgraced ex-NFL star was serving a life sentence for the 2013 Odin Lloyd shooting. In one of them, Hernandez explains why he wants to bunk with an inmate in another part of the prison. The man’s name is redacted.

“So, please make this happen and I even prefer to move in with (redacted); me and him are very close and have been since the streets and that’s FACT, not bulls–t,” the letter reads. “He’s my heart and like a real brother to me that’s why I want and am requesting to go upstairs and live with him.”

In another one, Hernandez says he wants to clear up “false gossip.” Specifics are redacted.

“I have been hearing from many or rather few thinking I’m (redacted) but that is false, people are always coming up with things that are incorrect. (redacted),” Hernandez wrote. “But a few have come up to me thinking that so it must have wrongly been circulating through false gossip.”

Hernandez was rumored to be carrying on a relationship with another inmate, Kyle Kennedy. In a press conference last month, Kennedy’s lawyer, Lawrence F. Army Jr., said the two men wanted to bunk together. Army wouldn’t address the nature of their relationship, however.

Prison officials found three letters in Hernandez’s cell after he had hanged himself in April. Army says one of them was addressed to Kennedy, but Hernandez’s fiancee, Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez, said on Dr. Phil last week that isn’t the case. In the interview, Jenkins-Hernandez also denied the former Patriots tight end was gay or bisexual.
