Aaron Rodgers reportedly hasn’t spoken to some of his family members since December of 2014.
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers apparently doesn’t have the best relationship with his family at the moment.
According to Tyler Dunne of Bleacher Report, the Super Bowl champion gun slinger has not spoken to his parents or brothers in over two years. One of his brothers, Jordan, was the recent winner of The Bachelorette.
Even the Christmas presents that were sent to his house from his parents were sent back, according to the story.
One source cited in the Bleacher Report story had this to say:
Don’t feel too bad, J-Mike. 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.
The same source had this to say about Rodgers as well:
He’s a f–king head case. He knows he’s doing the wrong thing, and he’s so arrogant and prideful that he thinks he can separate his personal life from his professional life, even though all of us know that’s impossible. You can’t do that.
Green Bay has lost four of its last five games, including three straight. Rodgers certainly hasn’t been himself in those contests either, and it seems to be a mystery as to what is causing his fall in production.
It is a very powerful and insightful story written by Dunne. We don’t often get to hear former teammates, close friends and current teammates speak about a player’s personal life, but in this case we do.
