Aaron Rodgers' Father Gets Candid About Their Estrangement: 'Fame Can Change Things'
By Rachel McRady
Aaron Rodgers led the Green Bay Packers to a playoff victory against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night, but there were several important people who were not cheering him on in the stands: his family.
In a new profile piece for The New York Times, Rodgers’ father, Ed, spoke out about the rift in his family, which made headlines when his other son, Jordan Rodgers, spoke about it with his now-fiancee JoJo Fletcher on the most recent season of The Bachelorette.
Aaron himself has remained tight-lipped about the apparent estrangement from his family, but told WISN of Jordan in July 2016, "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.”
