NFL star Aaron Rodger has been one of the most-talked-about people on this season of The Bachelorette. The only problem? He’s not actually on the show.
Aaron has stayed silent as his brother Jordan has discussed their feud while pursuing the heart of ‘Bachelorette’ JoJo Fletcher. He didn’t make a peep when, during last week’s Hometown Dates, Jordan and older brother Luke Rodgers made it seem like Aaron had abandoned his family for fame. After weeks of unwanted attention, Aaron has finally spoken out about his now very public feud with his brother Jordan and other family members.
During an interview with ABC’s Milwaukee affiliate WISN 12 News on Tuesday, Aaron (who is the middle Rodgers brother) made it clear that he wasn’t happy with his family’s decision to discuss their feud on ‘The Bachelorette.’
“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,” he told the news station.
While Aaron was miffed when he found out that his family has been airing out their dirty laundry for the cameras, he hasn’t exactly been glued to his TV, watching his little bro compete for JoJo’s heart.
“I haven’t seen the show, to be honest with you, so it hasn’t really affected me a whole lot,” Aaron said.
To prove that he’s not completely bitter, Aaron did manage to choke out some warm wishes for Jordan.
“I wish him well in the competition,” he said.
While we still don’t know what specifically caused the rift in the family, oldest Rodgers brother Luke did discuss it during Hometown Dates week.
“It’s something we don’t really like to talk about a lot,” Luke said of the feud. “It pains both of us not to have that relationship. We miss our brother. We just are trusting that God brings things full circle. And just wish that everything would just get back to us being a family.”
