Aaron Rodgers and actress Olivia Munn started dating each other in 2014. And according to many, that may have been the start of the family feud that goes on to this day. Soon after the relationship between the Green Bay Packers QB and ‘The Newsroom’ star began, the Rodgers family reportedly tried to warn him about his new girlfriend.

“His family told him they didn’t trust her and thought she wasn’t with him for the right reasons. That made him furious, and he ended up choosing Olivia over his family,” an insider told ‘Us Weekly’ in 2017.

Rodgers hasn’t spoken much about the estrangement publicly and has repeatedly said that he doesn’t like to talk about his personal life to the press. But according to a report, it wasn’t Munn who caused the rift. “It had nothing to do with her rather it was an issue entirely in the Rodgers family,” celebrity-based website Nicki Swift reported back in 2021 quoting ‘People’ magazine.

According to more recent reports, Rodgers might have started speaking again with his brother Jordan Rodgers, whose appearance on ‘The Bachelorette’ first brought up the issue. So while the QB figures out a way to leave the Packers, he has already taken steps to mend some bridges in the family.
