According to a shocking report, the ‘Green Bay Packers’ quarterback and his actress fiancee are going their separate ways, after having issues connected to his football career.
“While Shailene is supportive of Aaron’s career, he put football first and they were barely spending any time together,” a source told In Touch. Adding, “She felt he neglected their relationship. Neither of them was happy.”
Aaron Rodgers Reportedly ‘Getting Cold Feet’ About Upcoming Marriage
Interestingly, the report states that Rodgers is an “independent” person and might have been getting “cold feet” about his upcoming nuptials to the ‘Big Little Lies’ actress.
The good news is it appears the former couple parted ways “amicably” and released they just “couldn’t make it work.”
As we reported, Aaron Rodgers was named MVP of the National Football League, and many questioned why he didn’t mention his famous fiancee during the acceptance speech. According to reports, the QB dedicated his award to Ted Thompson and Maura Mandt, who passed away in the last couple of years — but, failed to mention Woodley.
Aaron Rodgers Failed To Mention Shailene Woodley During MVP Speech
“They have a different, non-traditional relationship. Shailene and Aaron are still together. It’s not odd they don’t post about each other on their birthdays in that sense, and are very private about things,” a source told ELLE. But, private or not, you would think this would be a time to mention his partner.
The couple got engaged in February 2021, and Rodgers was public about how well he played after meeting Shailene. “I got engaged and I played some of the best football in my career,” he said during the Annual NFL Honors.
The actress opened up about the famous couple’s relationship during an interview with Jimmy Fallon, saying, “We met during this whacky, whacky time and all the stadiums were closed that he was playing in,” she said. Adding, “I didn’t really grow up with sports, especially American sports. It was never really on my radar. When we met, also, I knew he was a football guy, but I didn’t know like what kind of a football guy he was. And I’m still constantly learning.”
‘Big Little Lies’ Star Defended NFL Star Boyfriend During COVID-19 Scandal
In the past few months, Shailene has come to Aaron’s defense over a COVID-19 scandal, where he was accused of not being vaccinated for the virus — but insinuating he was.
“Literally, you all need to calm the f–k down,” she wrote on IG. Calling out fans for trying to “disparage” Aaron’s reputation.
Aaron broke his silence on the situation, saying, “It wasn’t some sort of ruse or lie, it was the truth. Had there been a follow-up to my statement that I’d been immunized, I would have responded with this: I would have said, ‘Look, I’m not some sort of anti-vax-flat-Earther. I’m somebody who’s a critical thinker.'”
He continued, “I march to the beat of my own drum. I believe strongly in bodily autonomy, in the ability to make choices for your body, not to have to acquiesce to some woke culture or crazed group of individuals who say you have to do something.”
At this point, neither party has made an official statement about the reported breakup.
