Aaron Hernandez's Fiancee

He Cheated on Me

... And I Let It Go!

3/30/2015 10:22 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Aaron Hernandez essentially had a hall pass to cheat on his fiancée whenever he pleased ... because she says she knew all about it ... but decided to look the other way.  

Shayanna Jenkins testified for the second day at Hernandez's murder trial where he stands accused of killing Odin Lloyd back in 2013. 

Jenkins testified that she broke things off with Hernandez after she found evidence that he was banging other chicks on his cell phone. But Jenkins says she got back with Hernandez anyway because their bond was too strong.

After they reconciled, Jenkins says she decided to "compromise on his behavior, and that included infidelity and everything that came along with that."

Jenkins also testified to throwing away a box at the behest of Hernandez the day after Lloyd was killed. Jenkins says she does not know what was in the box and never looked inside.

After the jump, he went to Facebook ... posted the clip with the Superman theme music and wrote, "Never doing that again! #AirBrady."

Aaron Hernandez's fiancee just told the court that she asked the ex-Patriots star point blank if he murdered Odin Lloyd -- and he denied the whole thing. 

Shayanna Jenkins took the stand in Aaron's murder case moments ago and was asked if she ever discussed Lloyd's death with him.

Jenkins explained she asked Aaron about it when he first arrived home from the police station -- saying, "I asked him if he did it and he said 'No.' That was the extent of our conversation."

According to reports, Jenkins turned to Hernandez and mouthed the words "I love you" to Aaron as she walked out of the courtroom.

Respect My

Off-Season Training

Tom dropped back to his Costa Rican beachfront estate with Gisele and the fam for his annual off-season vacay.

Sure, Tom has a shiny new trophy that says otherwise -- but, from this angle, it's clear the real MVP in this family wears a bikini. A very small green bikini. 

Yeah, we know what you're thinking ... #FML.

Rob Gronkowski

BOOTS PARTY BUS INVADER

Get The Hell Outta Here!

3/13/2015 6:34 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Some moron snuck his way onto Rob Gronkowski's party bus last night ... after knocking a woman to the ground ... only to be escorted OFF the ride by private security ... and TMZ Sports has the footage. 

Gronk was leaving 1Oak on the Sunset Strip when some guy cut in front of the NFL star and tried to bee line it for the waiting bus. 

On his way to the bus the mystery man collided with a waiting female ... sending her crashing to the ground. But the man continued on his way and GOT INSIDE Gronk's ride. 

Moments later, once Gronk got on board -- security was called over ... and a frighteningly large man with an earpiece can be seen removing the intruder from the Gronk-mobile. 

Question is ... who do you think was more scared? Gronk, when he saw a strange man on his bus ... or the man when he realized he was trapped on a bus with a pissed off Gronk???

Captain America And Star-Lord Assemble

For Super Bowl Promise

When Captain America makes a promise ... he always follows through -- especially when it involves a deal he made with Chris Pratt over the Super Bowl.

As you may recall ... Pratt, a Seahawks fan, lost a bet to Chris Evans over the big game last month and visited a children's hospital dressed as Star-Lord from "Guardians of the Galaxy." Afterward, Evans agreed to the do the same, as Cap.

The 33 year-old hunk visited Seattle Children's Hospital Saturday in his Captain America costume ... and it's clear by the looks on these kids faces that their day was made.

The only thing Captain America couldn't do ... was explain why Marshawn Lynch didn't get the ball on the last play.

Officials believe both men puffed from the same marijuana cigarette ... which they say further proves that Hernandez was at the scene when Lloyd was killed.

The speech has become a controversial issue in Washington -- with several members of Congress boycotting the speech. 

But Kraft clearly wanted to make a statement ... which isn't too shocking considering Kraft's connection to Israel. 

As we previously reported, Kraft not only sponsors the Israeli Football League ... but recently produced a documentary about the country.

Aaron Hernandez

Gas Station Dance Party

Before Odin Lloyd Murder

2/26/2015 8:27 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

022615_aaron_hernandez_launch

Aaron Hernandez was in one helluva good mood in the hours before Odin Lloyd was murdered ... dancing on his way into a local gas station ... and it was all captured on video.  

The video was shot around 2AM on June 17, 2013 ... about 90 minutes before officials say Lloyd was murdered. 

Prosecutors believe the video plays a key role in the timeline ... connecting Hernandez with the car that Lloyd got into a short time later ... the same car that was seen driving into the secluded area where Lloyd's body was found later that day. 

Prosecutors also say the video shows Hernandez buying gum inside the gas station -- gum that officials say also connects Aaron to the murder. 

New England Patriots

We Can't Stop Chandler from Fighting

... But It May Void Contract

2/17/2015 8:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0217-jones-pats-logo-getty-02The New England Patriots tell TMZ Sports ... they CAN'T officially prevent Chandler Jones from fighting his UFC star brother Jon Jones ... but stepping in the ring COULD void his NFL contract. 

As we previously reported, Chandler is 100% confident he could beat up his big bro if they stepped into the octagon -- and wants to set up a 1-round charity fight to prove his point. 

Chandler had previously told us that the whole thing would hinge on if the Patriots coaching staff gave him the green light.

Well, we spoke with the Patriots VP of Media Relations ... who tells us, "It's not a matter of if we'd allow Chandler to fight his brother. We can't stop the players from doing what they want. But he might be voiding his contract obligations to the team if he went out and did it."

The rep continues, "Without getting into a specific contract, there have to be clauses [in contracts] that protect the team ... restrictions of physical activity that would risk injury. Whether it be skiing, jumping out of a plane or riding a motorcycle without a helmet in a state that requires one."

"I think they're having fun, but do I think fighting is something they're actually serious about? No."

"They're brothers. They have a sibling rivalry. Take the Gronkowski brothers ... there's not a Gronk among them that would say Rob's better at anything."

Long story short ... don't count on a Jones vs. Jones fight ... until AFTER Chandler's NFL career is over. 

Chris Pratt vs. Chris Evans

Super Bowl Wager ...

'Best Bet I Ever Lost'

EXCLUSIVE

021715_chris_pratt_launchChoking to the New England Patriots wasn't so bad after all ... so says Seahawks mega-fan Chris Pratt who says his Super Bowl wager with Chris Evans was the "best bet I ever lost."

Of course, Pratt agreed to visit the kids at Evans' Boston-based charity after the defeat ... dressed as Star-Lord ... while the "Captain America" actor taunted him with a Tom Brady jersey. 

The kids loved it -- and clearly, so did Chris, who told us the whole experience was "beautiful."

The clip's pretty great ... especially the part where Pratt's famous friend (an actor who's been in a bunch of stuff) jockeys for camera time on the way into a bar ... hilarious stuff.
