Quarterback Aaron Rodgers of the National Football League NFL team the Green Bay Packers is one of the most known faces in the league at the moment. He is an extremely popular player and has millions of followers.
It is hence easy to comprehend that his personal life and relationships come under the radar of public news as well. It is no secret that the Packers man was dating Hollywood star and movie actress Shailene Woodley at this time.
Aaron Rodgers wanted to protect fiancee Shailene Woodley from his family before his breakup
An interesting gossip has been revealed about the relationship between Aaron Rodgers and his ex-fiancee Shailene Woodley from an anonymous source. It has been said that Aaron Rodgers wanted to protect Shailene Woodley from his family.
This was in particular due to the fact that Aaron Rodgers has a strained relationship with his family. The quarterback felt that his family was taking advantage of his success and his younger brother Jordan revealed this in 2016 while making an appearance on JoJo Fletcher’s season of The Bachelorette.
Aaron Rodgers has a tough relationship with his family and with his brother Jordan Rodgers and that is the main concern that he had before introducing his family to Shailene.
“When it comes to his family—his parents and his brother—there has been a strain for years over so many reasons,” the source told HollywoodLife.
“He wants to protect his relationship with Shailene, and bringing into it the drama of what he is going through with his family is not something he wants to do right now—or at all.”
Brother Jordan Rodgers has explained that it pains him that Aaron Rodgers doesn’t have any closeness with him and Luke. “It’s just the way he’s chosen to do life,” Jordan said on The Bachelorette. “I chose to stay close with my family and my parents and my brother [Luke]. I trust that God brings things full circle and that everything would just get back to us being a family,” he said.
However, despite all of this, Aaron Rodgers and Shailene Woodley called it quits to their relationship back in April after being back and forth many times. The couple had been together since 2020, and even announced their engagement in February, 2021.
