Aaron & Jordan Rodgers' Dad Speaks Out About Family Drama & 'The Bachelorette'

18 January, 2017

While competing on the ABC reality series, Jordan, 28, revealed that although he was very close with his oldest brother Luke, Aaron is estranged from the rest of the family.

This comes on the heels of Rodgers' father, Ed, opening up to The New York Times about a Bleacher Report story from last November claiming the former NFL MVP hadn't spoken to his family since the end of 2014. The New York Times article notes: "While romancing the show's star, JoJo Fletcher, Jordan told her that she probably would not meet Aaron on a coming visit to Chico, because the quarterback had distanced himself from his kin".

Aaron Rodgers led the Green Bay Packers to a tremendous win over the Dallas Cowboys Sunday, further cementing his living legend status.

Jordan, during his stint on The Bachelorette, opened up about his family drama to the show's star, JoJo Fletcher, and was up front when he told her that she probably wouldn't be meeting his brother anytime soon.

Jordan Rodgers' dad, Ed, has confirmed the family's estrangement from National Football League quarterback Aaron Rodgers hasn't improved much since The Bachelorette aired in this past summer.

He hinted that Aaron Rodgers is not on speaking terms with his family, saying "it's hard to tell sometimes" if Aaron is warming back up to them. "He's going through great precautions not to make things worse", the insider close to Rodgers told the magazine.

"I just don't think it's appropriate talking about family stuff publicly", he said Thursday at the Packers' practice facility. There will be thousands of media members on hand for Media Day alone, and if you've ever watched Media Day go down, you know that no one is afraid to ask about anything, which means Aaron could be getting a lot of questions about his family.

"It's complicated", Ed admitted, adding, "We're all hoping for the best". "He will deal with his family issues privately".

Even as it became a storyline of Jordan's reality TV tenure, he seemed reluctant to get into it, and still hasn't offered many specifics.
