Aaron Rodgers, 38, seemingly implied that everything might be fine between him and his fiance Shailene Woodley, 30, after all following rumors that they split. In fact, he seemed to credit her for his successes. “When your home life is stable and you have an amazing partner to do life with, it just makes the work life a bonus,” the NFL MVP said on “The Pat McAfee Show” Tuesday, Feb. 22. “and it changes your perspective because you’re able to not look at work as, like, a refuge.”
“I’ve been with you two years, won two MVPs — that’s not a coincidence, either,” he added. Ironically, a source told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY that Aaron’s career is the root of their problems. “He wanted to get to and win the Super Bowl, he wanted to be the league’s MVP and that made his main focus his career,” our source explained.
Aaron sent another mixed message about his relationship when he spent his Monday night expressing gratitude and reflecting on the past year. He thanked Shailene for “always having my back” and “showing me what unconditional love looks like.” He concluded his heartfelt message by saying, “I love you.” It’s hard to tell whether this is a goodbye message or him insisting their relationship is solid.
All of this drama has gone down since In Touch reported that the two were calling off their engagement and splitting up. Similar to what our source said, their source disclosed that Aaron always put his career first ahead of his relationship. They also added that neither Shailene nor Aaron were happy in the relationship. Their alleged split comes just two years after they got engaged in 2020. Now we’re just waiting on them to speak out on it directly.
