The Rodgers family feud apparently goes well beyond Aaron Rodgers’ relationship with his brother, Jordan.
We heard plenty about the apparent rift between the two brothers while Jordan competed for and eventually won the heart of JoJo Fletcher on “The Bachelorette.” There are even reports out there that Aaron’s girlfriend, actress Olivia Munn, was the source of the family feud.
But we never really knew just how bad it was — and that the rest of the family apparently is involved, too — until Bleacher Report’s Tyler Dunne wrote an in-depth profile on the Green Bay Packers quarterback’s recent woes.
Here’s the most shocking part of the profile, which was published Friday.
“One source, who was close to Rodgers for years but is among the many who have since been cut off by Rodgers entirely, said the quarterback has not spoken to his family since December 2014. Don’t feel too bad, (Jermichael Finley). Immediate family members don’t even have his cellphone number. When Mom and Dad sent Christmas presents to the quarterback and his girlfriend that year, the source said, those gifts were mailed back in February. He was set to be the groomsman in the wedding of one of his closest friends, the source said, and texted the day before he couldn’t attend.
“He didn’t attend his grandfather’s funeral — the same grandfather he once called before every game. He fired a business manager he’s known since high school. The family was told they were no longer welcome in Green Bay. If Dad wants to attend a game now, he buys tickets on StubHub or goes through another player’s family.”
That sure would make for one awkward Thanksgiving dinner table.
