Playing Aaron Rodgers Talks Estrangement From 'Bachelorette' Brother Jordan: It's 'Inappropriate to Talk Publicly'

Aaron Rodgers is finally weighing in on his younger brother Jordan airing out their family drama on The Bachelorette.

Jordan, who's made it all the way to the final two to win the heart of JoJo Fletcher, admitted in previous episodes that he and his Super Bowl-winning brother have a strained relationship. Aaron, 32, was also notably absent when JoJo visited Jordan's hometown in Chico, California, to meet the entire Rodgers family.

Aaron says he hasn't watched 27-year-old Jordan on the hit ABC show.

"I haven't seen the show, to be honest with you, so it hasn't really affected me a whole lot," Aaron told WISN, who caught up with the quarterback after the Green Bay Packers training camp on Tuesday.

Aaron chose not to elaborate on his and Jordan's estrangement, but did wish him the best.

"As far as those kinds of things go, I've always found that it's a little inappropriate to talk publicly about some family matters, so I'm just -- I'm not going to speak on those things, but I wish him well in the competition," he added.

Multiple sources have told ET that Aaron has actually been estranged from his entire family for years. "The entire situation is painful for the family," a source close to the Rodgers family said.

Aaron's girlfriend, actress Olivia Munn, also alluded to the strained relationship between Aaron and Jordan when ET chatted with her in May while she was promoting X-Men: Apocalypse.

"Aaron doesn't really ... I don't think he's really talked with his brother," Olivia told ET when asked about Jordan appearing on this season's The Bachelorette. "So, I actually don't know. It's complicated -- I'll say that."

In last week’s episode, Jordan told Bachelorette cameras that he "missed" Aaron.

"It would have been nice to share JoJo with not only my parents and my brother Luke, but my brother Aaron as well," Jordan said after his hometown date with JoJo. "I miss my brother a lot -- especially in moments like this because my family means so much. JoJo is everything to me right now and they know that, and they can see that."

The eldest Rodgers sibling, Luke, also weighed in on the estrangement during a conversation with JoJo.

"It's something we don't really like to talk about a whole lot," Luke noted. "It pains both of us not to have that relationship. We miss our brother and I trust that God brings things full circle and it's a wish that everything would just get back to us being a family."

When ET caught up with JoJo earlier this month at the Men Tell All taping, she gave her own thoughts on why Aaron might be estranged from the Rodgers family.

"I can't say. That is not something that I was there for, and it wasn't something that I felt that I should pry into," she explained. "I will say that the stuff that Jordan told me on that date was ... it was actually quite sweet how he handled it."
