Aaron Rodgers isn’t ruling out making amends together with his estranged household someday, however it doesn’t sound like he plans on making the primary transfer!
As it’s possible you’ll know, the Inexperienced Bay Packers QB had a nasty spat together with his mother and father and two brothers a number of years in the past they by no means recovered from. The household feud got here to mild throughout his brother Jordan’s stint on The Bachelorette in 2016, however what precisely triggered the rift remains to be a thriller to today.
This week, the NFL famous person opened up about what the long run holds for his relationship together with his fam on the Aubrey Marcus Podcast. Whereas he confessed the rift remains to be going sturdy, the athlete revealed that would change sooner or later.
He instructed host Aubrey Marcus:
“I do believe in healing and I believe in the possibility of reconciliation at some point. But, it’s a different journey for all of us, and to judge on the outside about what should be or what it should look like, or who’s wrong or who’s right is just a game I’ve never wanted to play and still don’t want to play.”
Aaron made it clear that he nonetheless has “deep love and gratitude” for his brood, however mentioned a household reunion was nonetheless up within the air. He added:
“The most important thing for me is deep love and gratitude for them, and for the lessons I learned, and for the way I was raised, and hope for the future. But, who knows what that future is gonna look like, when it’s gonna look like, when time is gonna come… I have no bitterness in my heart. I have no resentment. I just have deep love and appreciation for the lessons that I learned, and the fact that if I hadn’t been raised that way — all the good and all the frustrating — there’s no way I’d be sitting here today.”
Once more, it’s unclear what triggered the rift within the first place, however an Us Weekly supply beforehand claimed the falling out was over Rodgers’ relationship with Olivia Munn. The insider mentioned on the time:
“Aaron is the one that has pulled away from the family, not the reverse. When he got together with Olivia Munn, his family told him they didn’t trust her and thought she wasn’t with him for the right reasons. That made him furious and he ended up choosing Olivia over his family.”
The athlete later broke up with Munn, who’s now with comedian John Mulaney, however he nonetheless doesn’t converse to his household — which makes us suppose there is likely to be extra to the story…
Regardless of the case, the household feud made headlines once more earlier this yr when it was revealed Aaron didn’t attend his brother Jordan’s marriage ceremony to JoJo Fletcher — regardless of being invited. An Us insider defined:
“There is still a family rift… It’s a sad situation for the family and especially for Jordan who really does love his brother. Aaron missed out on his big day and that’s something Jordan’s never going to forget. Jordan invited his entire family, including Aaron, even knowing he most likely wouldn’t attend since they’ve been distant for a long time now.”
We solely get one household, so hopefully the Rodgers clan can restore this rift a technique or one other.
