The anger Aaron Hernandez felt about the death of his father had just started to subside when his mother was stabbed in 2010, causing the ex-NFL player's rage to resurface with more intensity, according to a new report.

Daily Beast published an article on Monday detailing the tragedies Hernandez endured while growing up. The ex-New England Patriots star lost his father at the age of 16 and while at the University of Florida, his mother Terri Hernandez was stabbed by her second husband. The incident occurred just as Hernandez signed a lucrative four-year contract with the Patriots and seemed to be overcoming the anger that had consumed him after the death of his father. The assault on his mother caused Hernandez to regress and he was once again overcome with rage, according to the report. 

The 23-year-old's father, Dennis Hernandez, was a high school football star in Bristol, Conn. who enjoyed witnessing his son follow a similar path. Dennis reportedly attended all of Aaron's football games for the Bristol Central High School and saw his son score his first touchdown for the team on a pass from his older brother, star quarterback D.J. Hernandez. When Dennis suffered a fatal infection following routine surgery for a hernia, it devastated the then 16-year-old. Hernandez allegedly joined the Bristol Bloods gang after his father passed away. 

"It was very, very hard, and he was very, very angry," Terri previously told USA Today about Aaron's reaction to losing his father. "He wasn't the same kid, the way he spoke to me. The shock of losing his dad, there was so much anger."

Terri later married Jeffrey Cummings in Las Vegas on Jan. 16, 2009, three years and 10 days after she became a widow. Cummings was an ex-convict who added another infringement to his rap sheet when he assaulted a police officer the year he married Terri. A year and a half later - on June 29, 2010 - police were dispatched to the house that Hernandez and Cummings shared on Greystone Avenue in Bristol, Conn.

Cummings, in a fit of psychotic rage, slashed Terri's face with a knife before she called the police. Aaron was away at the University of Florida at the time, where he was a star player along with quarterback Tim Tebow. When he learned of the attack on his mother, it reportedly resurfaced the anger brought on by the death of his father with even greater fury. The incident allegedly started a string of violent acts by Hernandez, which eventually lead to his arraignment for the murder of Odin Lloyd.
