Aaron Hernandez’s last words when he responded to a fan via a letter was to not let the letter get into the hands of social media.

That letter has done more than make it to social media, and according to the Boston Globe, it has made for a nice payday.

The Globe is reporting that TMZ paid $18,000 to a sports store named Sportsworld. Sportsworld, Inc., manager Brendan Brennan told the Boston Globe that his store sold Hernandez’s letter to TMZ on Friday.

The letter was originally written to an ex-con named “Karl” to be exact.

Hernandez, of course, says he’ll be acquitted of the murder of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd, and says being jailed on the murder charges has “humbled him.”

Hernandez asks his pen pal to keep the letter off the Internet. Brennan indicated that Sportsworld had no bad feelings about selling the supposedly confidential letter to TMZ.

“It wasn’t written to us, so we didn’t have to honor anything from that letter,” Brennan said.

Whoever wrote the letter to Hernandez had plans of making a dime off of it, and I have a good feeling Sportsworld was aware of that.
