Another Theory About the Cause of the Aaron Rodgers’ Family Rift

Yes, we know. This is getting tired, but we have to mention it. There’s another theory as to why Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers isn’t on speaking terms with his family.

It’s a pretty simple one and here it is.

Olivia Munn with ring

That’s correct. Olivia Munn is the source of the split, according to the latest gossip.

For the uninitiated, let’s do a quick recap.

Jordan Rodgers, Aaron’s younger brother, just won The Bachelorette. During the taping, Jordan noted how Aaron had no relationship with him or the rest of the family. That angle was milked heavily by the producers of the show. When training camp opened, Rodgers refused to discuss any family matters.

But since The Bachelorette finale was earlier this week and Jordan and JoJo Fletcher are making the rounds talking about their engagement, this isn’t dying anytime soon.

Let’s address the elephant in the room. There was a previous rumor that Aaron’s rift with the family stems from him being secretly gay.

This new rumor doesn’t go that far.

It stops at that woman above.

A family insider claims Aaron’s girlfriend of two years, Olivia Munn, is at the center of the family feud. The X-Men: Apocalypse actress, 36, “has a strong personality and every meeting she has had with them has gone badly,” continues the source.

“The family says Aaron stopped talking to them,” notes the insider. “While Aaron says they don’t talk because his family doesn’t like Olivia.” (Says a Munn source: “Aaron makes his own decisions and wouldn’t be swayed by Olivia.”)

It would be no surprise to us if Olivia were at the center of all this.

Aaron’s father made a cryptic remark about how fame can change you during The Bachelorette.

Monty, who lives in L.A. and has several Hollywood connections, has relayed a number of unflattering stories about Munn, such as this one right here.

The evidence is certainly out there if you want to find it. Aaron obviously doesn’t and that’s his right.

But, we say this every time we talk about this nonsense. If Rodgers’ head isn’t right, then his game isn’t right. And that means the Green Bay Packers are not right.

We sure as hell don’t want to sit through another replay of 2015, when defenses were stacking the box and daring the Packers to throw.

    Although the show is over, that doesn’t seem to stop the skirts from keeping the gossip column up and running. So we get to read this same exact quote again and again and……

    “But, we say this every time we talk about this nonsense. If Rodgers’ head isn’t right, then his game isn’t right. And that means the Green Bay Packers are not right.”

    Do you ever read the garbage you write? You keep blaming Rodgers play last season on Olivia, repeatedly stating that Rodgers head isn’t right, clearly insinuating that it’s Olivia’s fault. Time and time and time and time again you feed us this shit….WE GET IT, ok?

    As if other segments of the team have nothing to do with Rodgers performance. That’s just ignorant.
    Rodgers had his 2nd best NFL season in 2014, winning league MVP. Olivia was with him during that whole season. So under your logic. Is Olivia the reason Rodgers won MVP and took the Packers to 15-1? In simpler terms for you to understand. If Olivia gets the blame for a down season, should Olivia therefore get the credit for the 2014 season? Is Olivia the reason why Rodgers won the MVP? Sounds kind of stupid doesn’t it?

    You self describe this subject as nonsense, but you and Mordy just can’t stop writing about it. Well, i have to agree with you, your staff writes a lot of nonsense.

    You proclaim to be a fiction writer, so these kind of articles might be par for the course for you. But fiction has no place in sports writing. Maybe this isn’t your thing my friend.

      The Packers went 15-1 in 2014? That’s news to me.

    yawn. dooon’t care about ARodg’s personal life. AT ALL. Please just stop with this crap and stick to football. I agree with PF4L. ARodg was lights out at the beginning of last season. Then the oline got dinged up. Receivers got hurt and Lacy was ineffective/fat. This should be self evident, but apparently all of that is Olivia Munn’s fault? Okay. This is a post that makes me question why I bother coming to this site (and all the banners and pop ups) and reading that bullshit.

      Too complex, have a scapegoat, much easier, just ask Chris Carter.

    Has anyone asked Kevin Lanflisi for his take?
