Aaron Rodgers' estranged brother Jordan snaps back at Olivia Munn for talking about his family drama
Jordan Rodgers fired back at Aaron’s ex-girlfriend, after she detailed the rift within the Rodgers family on 'Andy Cohen Live'
Olivia Munn became the center of Rodgers family feud as her ex's estranged brother snapped back.
Jordan Rodgers fired back at Aaron’s ex-girlfriend, Olivia Munn, after she detailed the rift within the Rodgers family. “I’ll say I have no idea why she’s still talking about an ex, I don’t get that,” the SEC Network analyst told Us Weekly on Wednesday.
The 37-year-old actress dated Rodgers’ brother, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers for three years before splitting in April 2017.
Munn spoke about her ex-boyfriend’s family on Andy Cohen’s radio show on Sirius XM’s “Andy Cohen Live” last week. She dispelled rumors that she was involved in Aaron Rodgers’ feud with his family.
Munn told Cohen last week, “I have kind of avoided speaking about him for a long time. I met one brother, the one who was on ‘The Bachelorette,’ Jordan. I was friendly with Jordan. I met the parents only a couple times, and before he and I started dating, he hadn’t spoken to the parents and one brother for like eight months.”
“My last day on ‘The Newsroom’ I spent my day in a trailer just encouraging him to have an open conversation with his parents, and they had a really nice conversation and then they started coming out my first year in Green Bay in 2014,” Munn said.
However, the reconciliation appeared to be short-lived as Jordan revealed bits and pieces of the family feud while competing on “The Bachelorette” in 2016.
“I have a great relationship with my [older] brother, Luke. I and Aaron don’t really have much of a relationship,” Jordan told future fiancée JoJo Fletcher on the show.
Munn however, believes, Aaron’s superstar status complicated matters.
“I do believe family and fame and success can be really complicated if their dreams are connected to your success,” the actress said.
“They [the Rodgers family] are all into sports and Aaron is one of the best, if not the best, quarterbacks to play the game. Their work has a direct connection to what he does."
“There’s a lot of complications. I don’t think either side of the road is clean, but I do think it’s not OK if you try to stand on someone’s shoulders, then throw dirt in their face, that’s what I think.”
Despite the current bad-blood between the brothers, the 29-year-old Jordan hopes to reconnect with 34-year-old Aaron before he walks down the aisle.
“There’s no scenario in which I wouldn’t want my entire family at my wedding,” Jordan previously stated. “That’s something all of our family wants and hopes for at this point.”
