Aaron Rodgers Must REALLY Hate His Family, That Or He’s Just A Giant Dick, One Of Those Things

A new profile piece by Ty Dunne, a former Packers beat writer, for Bleacher Report discussing the struggles Aaron Rodgers and the Packers have been having reveals just how fractured the QB’s relationship with his family really is.

We had previously heard about how Rodgers’ relationship with his brother Jordan and the rest of his family was pretty non-existent when it was reported that, “The family says Aaron stopped talking to them. While Aaron says they don’t talk because his family doesn’t like Olivia [Munn].”

Aaron’s dad Ed Rodgers even hinted at the family strife during one of Jordan’s episodes of The Bachelorette saying, “Fame can change you.”

Dunne’s feature, however, delves even deeper into just how big the divide is, and it doesn’t paint Aaron Rodgers in a very good light…

One source, who was close to Rodgers for years but is among the many who have since been cut off by Rodgers entirely, said the quarterback has not spoken to his family since December 2014. Don’t feel too bad, J-Mike. Immediate family members don’t even have his cellphone number. When Mom and Dad sent Christmas presents to the quarterback and his girlfriend that year, the source said, those gifts were mailed back in February. He was set to be the groomsman in the wedding of one of his closest friends, the source said, and texted the day before he couldn’t attend.

He didn’t attend his grandfather’s funeral — the same grandfather he once called before every game. He fired a business manager he’s known since high school. The family was told they were no longer welcome in Green Bay. If Dad wants to attend a game now, he buys tickets on StubHub or goes through another player’s family.

There is MUCH more to read, so this is in no way the only description related about Rodgers as a person, but damn, bro, they’re your family and you only get one of those in life. You need to patch that shit up before it’s too late and you literally can’t.
