Could a girl really tear apart a family bond? It seems so for the Rodgers’ clan. The family’s rift with Aaron Rodgers was exposed on ‘The Bachelorette,’ and a new report claims that his girlfriend Olivia Munn, may be the root of it.
Olivia, 36, “has a strong personality and every meeting she has had with them has gone badly,” a source told Us Weekly about the Rodgers family. Olivia and Aaron have been dating since April 2014, so it definitely could be a long-standing rift that’s just expanded.
We know that Jordan and Aaron’s dad mentioned, “Fame can change you,” when talking about the feud on The Bachelorette, but maybe it was also his girlfriend?
Regardless, the Jordan-Aaron feud has been allover the media, leaving the newly-engaged couple “incredibly stressed.” Now, “the family is torn apart, and it’s playing out in the media,” the source added.
However, they also don’t agree on how the feud began. A show insider says the clan even squabbles over who started the fight.
“The family says Aaron stopped talking to them, while Aaron says they don’t talk because his family doesn’t like Olivia,” an insider says. An Olivia source also added that the second would not be true. “Aaron makes his own decisions and wouldn’t be swayed by Olivia.”
It seems to be a lot of miscommunication here? But Jordan did just announce that he will absolutely be inviting his brother to his wedding to JoJo — so maybe that could be a step in the reconciliation direction. However, when Aaron finally spoke about their issues publicly in an interview, he didn’t seem interested.
“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,” he told Milwaukee TV station WISN on July 26.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Olivia Munn could be the cause of the whole rift?
