Court records show the estate of former NFL star Aaron Hernandez currently has a dollar value of zero.
The former New England Patriots tight end took his own life last week in prison.
The Boston Herald reports that Hernandez’s fiancée, Shayanna Jenkins Hernandez, and her attorney George J. Leontire, filed an affidavit Wednesday in probate court that states Hernandez’s estate is currently worth “$0.00” with “no monies available and no identifiable personal assets.”
But there is an offer to buy Hernandez’s house — worth nearly $1.3 million. The pending sale price on the 15-room, 7,100-square-foot home in the exclusive Westwood Estates subdivision is not disclosed in court filings.
The Colonial-style house — listed on realtor.com for $1.29 million — includes a pool with a waterfall, a movie theater, a wet bar, built-in grill, jetted tub, gourmet kitchen and three-car garage. It also has a finished basement with a sauna, ice bath and space for a workout room.
The proceeds from the sale — if it goes through — have already been attached in the wrongful-death lawsuit brought against Hernandez in 2013 by the mother of murder victim Odin L. Lloyd of Dorchester.
Hernandez was serving life without parole for Lloyd’s murder when he committed suicide last week at the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley.
Jenkins Hernandez is now seeking to preserve whatever she receives for the house for any damages awarded in the Lloyd case “and any potential future actions arising out of decedent’s death,” court papers state.
