What’s going between the Rodgers Brothers?
As we have talked about above, among the three brothers, Aaron and Jordan are the athletic ones who are on the field professionally. Additionally, they are also the ones in the limelight most often.
While this might also be the reason to bring the closeness among brothers, it also strained Aaron and Jordan’s relationship for years. The duo brothers both played collegiate football and even on the professional field.
Apparently, Jordan grew up in Aaron’s shadows and chose the same path on the field like him.
In the meantime, Jordan was also often compared to his brother, Aaron, during his professional career.
Things even went to the extent that people would call him to use his brother, Aaron, for his resource.
“That really strikes a chord with me. Just, like, that kind of word, because it’s just not who I am, because, frankly, at every step of my life, I was just kind of disappointed. No matter what I did, it was never good enough for a coach or a teammate because I was being compared to someone who did it best.”
Aaron Rodgers’ Date and Family
Well, most even think that the family feud commenced as Aaron Rodgers started dating. As per the sources, when Aarron dated Olivia Munn back in 2014, it drove numerous comments from his family.
As he dated Olivia, his parents weren’t happy with his relationship, and eventually, he chose Olivia and refused to talk about his family feud.
Indeed, he was disappointed as his girlfriend was dragged as the source of his family feud.
Later, the news reported that Aaron had stopped talking to his family back in December 2014.
Thus, he refused to visit his grandfather’s funeral and even returned the Christmas gifts sent to him. Likewise, he also dodged to attend his friend’s weddings.
Jordan Rodgers and the public Knowledge
It wasn’t till the year 2016 that this issue received attention from the media and the public. As Jordan Rodgers joined JoJo Fletcher’s season of The Bachelorette, he gained wide attention and came into the limelight.
In the end, he also gained JoJo’s rose, and he stated that Aaron wouldn’t be present for the day.
Following it, the duo got secretly engaged, but it was reported that Aaron wasn’t present with the family. In the meantime, JoJo also stated that she hadn’t met Aaron yet.
Later, he opened up a bit about their conflicts on-camera. Jordan stated that he had no hard feelings towards his brother; however, he wasn’t close with the family.
Regarding the topic, the family refused to make any statement on it. However, it was hard for Aaron to dodge the topic and not speak about it.
“As far as those kinds of things go, I’ve always found that it’s a little inappropriate to talk publicly about some family matters, so I’m just — I’m not going to speak on those things, but I wish him well in the competition.”
Olivia Munn’s Take
Before Aaron and Olivia split, Edward Wesley Rodgers had commented on his family feud. He stated that the things out in public felt better and hoped for the thing to get good.
In the end, he had added, “Fame changes everything.” Well, it’s not sure whether it was targeted to Aaron or not.
After Olivia Munn split with Aaron Rodgers, she stated that Aaron had had conflicts with his family eight months before their date.
“I don’t think either side of the road is clean, but I do think it’s not OK when you try to stand on someone’s shoulders and then throw dirt in their face, which is what I think they did with him.”
After Olivia’s comment, Jordan further commented on why she would like to speak about her ex, which indeed didn’t go well. It was also the same during the California wildfires when Aaron Rodgers talked about it.
During the time, Aaron Rodgers had also donated a million-dollar for the wildfire victims, raising awareness and his compassion. However, not long after, his brothers tweeted about his tweet indirectly.
“But when your Mom is home alone during the fires, car packed, ready to evacuate, & you miss the fundamental first step of compassion, calling your parents to make sure they are safe… Everything else just feels like an act.” – Jordon Rodgers.
“Smells like cowardice this morning.” -Luke Rodgers.
The On and Off Family Tension
Back when Aaron Rodgers started dating Danica Patrick, he commenced talking and involving with the family more. The things got better every time, and they were more into each other.
Suddenly, in December 2019, their relationship again became tense after Rodgers’ appearance on Danica Patrick’s Pretty Intense podcast.
During the podcast, Aaron had talked about his religion and childhood upbringing.
Currently, Aaron Rodgers is engaged to Shailene Woodley while their wedding planning is on hold.
But, talking about his family feud, it is still in difficult waters. Altogether, we hope that this family and brothers get along well soon.
