He could be helping take his team to the Super Bowl this year, but the rift between Aaron Rodgers and his family seems to still be going on, meaning the Green Bay Packers Quarterback may not have their support if he helps take his team to Houston for the big game.
In a new interview with the New York Times, Rodgers' father, Ed, has revealed that the rift between the family-which includes Jordan Rodgers, who brought the feud to the spotlight during his winning appearance on ABC's The Bachelorette-has led to him and his wife not attending any of Aaron's games, and confirmed they wouldn't be attending the N.F.C. divisional playoff game this weekend in Dallas, and he admits that sometimes he doesn't even know if there's a thaw in the tension, which started around the same time Aaron began dating Olivia Munn in 2014.
"It's hard to tell sometimes," he admitted in the interview about the possibility the rift had thawed, before adding that he felt the fame his son has achieved has potentially led to and added to the issues.
"Fame can change things," he also added.
The spotlight on the feud was made brighter when Jordan appeared on The Bachelorette and opened up about things with JoJo Fletcher (his now fiancee), telling her she wouldn't likely meet Aaron during a hometown date-a moment that was brought into even sharper focus when a shot at the family dinner table saw the pair with Ed and wife Darla as well as oldest brother Luke-and two empty seats for the Quarterback and Munn, who didn't show.
Munn has been oft-speculated as the cause of the rift, though Us Weekly notes that there are conflicting reports about what led to the drama.
"The family says Aaron stopped talking to them, while Aaron says they don't talk because his family doesn't like Olivia," a source told the magazine.
