Football star Aaron Rodgers’ feud with his family surfaced on the 12th season of “The Bachelorette,” which featured his brother Jordan.
During the show, Jordan told JoJo Fletcher, "It’s just the way he’s chosen to do life. I chose to stay close with my family and my parents and my brother [Luke].”
Aaron’s estrangement from his family is making headlines again after his father Ed told The New York Times that they haven’t spoken in two years. He said on Sunday, “It’s complicated… We’re all hoping for the best."
Last Thursday, Aaron refused to comment on the family drama, telling The Times in Wisconsin, "I just don’t think it’s appropriate talking about family stuff publicly."
A source close to Rodgers recently told People magazine, "Aaron has never wanted to air this out in a public forum. He’s going through great precautions not to make things worse. You’re not going to see him on ‘Oprah' crying about all of this. He will deal with his family issues privately.”
Another insider shared, "It’s been hard for Jordan. Aaron is his family. It’s sad.”
Aaron is currently trying to lead the Green Bay Packers to the Super Bowl.
