'No education or awareness': Shailene Woodley accuses Aaron Rodgers' new GF Blu of cultural appropriation
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Shailene Woodley, ex-fiancee of NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers, is reportedly upset with his current girlfriend's behavior, as per Showbiz CheatSheet. Romance rumors between the quarterback and a new woman called Blu surfaced less than two months after Rodgers and Woodley called it quits in early 2022. Woodley is now taking aim at Blu for allegedly appropriating Native American culture.
The quarterback and Blu are believed to have crossed paths after Rodgers attempted to make up with the 'Big Little Lies' star a few times but finally the two went their own ways. Blu, formerly known as Charlotte Brereton, is a proponent of alternative medicine, an artist, and the host of the Deja Blu podcast.
The rumor that the two were dating surfaced in June 2022, and was reported by Sideaction. When they were pictured together, many assumed they were an item since Rodgers had a tattoo that matched Blu's.
However, Shailene Woodley doesn't seem to be a fan of her ex's current romantic partner, as evidenced by comments she made on October 10.
A source told Sideaction, “Shailene has been a long-time supporter of the Native American culture.” Therefore she didn’t take too kindly when “Blu, who may or may not identify as a witch, took time over the weekend to get her dreads done, complete with feathers. Blu was spotted wearing a Native American headdress while living it up at Burning Man.”
As per New York Post, Blu had previously shot down allegations of being a witch in an Instagram story saying, “I do not identify as a witch. Y’all are hilarious.”
Woodley spoke on Instagram Live with Dee Jay on Indigenous Peoples Day and said, “People appropriate Native culture constantly and yet don’t actually have any knowledge or education or awareness! Basic awareness of Native American culture or Native Americans in general."
Rodgers hasn't discussed his connection with Blu in the media, and the two of them haven't been pictured together since June. After the athlete talked about his ayahuasca experience on Aubrey Marcus' podcast in August, Blu merely made a few remarks on the athlete's "courage" to speak the truth.
Shailene Woodley and Aaron Rodgers started dating in 2020, got engaged, and then split up in 2022. Rodgers has admitted in the past that he isn’t a fan of dating in the public eye. “It’s definitely … it’s difficult. It has some extra constraints because you have other opinions about your relationship, how it affects your work and, you know, just some inappropriate connections,” he said, according to Showbiz Cheatsheet.
