Olivia Munn shares thoughts on Aaron Rodgers reconciling with parents

Aaron Rodgers

Aaron Rodgers has had a strained relationship with several members of his immediate family for quite some time, including his parents. Olivia Munn saw that first-hand when she was dating the star quarterback, and she is pleased to hear that it may no longer be the case.

Earlier in the week, Rodgers subtly revealed that he was spending time with his parents for his 35th birthday when he was asked how he found out about former Packers coach Mike McCarthy being fired.

“I found out I’m sure the same way most of you found out,” he said. “I was at home with my folks in town for my birthday.”

That actually turned out to be pretty significant news for Rodgers’ personal life. After he and Munn broke up, the actress confirmed that Rodgers’ relationship with his parents began to sour back in 2014. TMZ caught up with Munn this week and informed her about Rodgers saying his parents were in town to celebrate his birthday, and she said it was great news.

“If that’s true, it’s amazing,” Munn said. “It’s long overdue.”

Ed Rodgers, Aaron’s father, confirmed in an interview nearly two years ago that the two-time NFL MVP does not speak with members of his family, so something must have changed. Aaron’s brother Jordan also aired out some more Rodgers family drama on social media recently, which is even more reason why people were surprised to hear that Rodgers was spending time with his parents.

Rodgers hasn’t really said much about his personal life and has criticized his brother for making it public, so it’s unlikely he will comment on the situation.

Olivia Munn discusses Aaron Rodgers’ family problems

Olivia Munn was often publicly blamed for coming between Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers quarterback’s family, but Munn says that wasn’t entirely the case.

Munn, who broke up with Rodgers a year ago, says Rodgers was experiencing family problems even before the two met. The actress discussed Rodgers’ family issues during an appearance on “Andy Cohen Live” on Wednesday.

“I met one brother (Jordan). I was friendly with Jordan. I met the parents only a couple times,” Munn said. “Before he and I started dating, he hadn’t spoken the parents and one brother for like eight months before we started dating.”

Munn says she encouraged Rodgers to reach out to his parents to try and repair the relationship. She says the parents started coming out to Wisconsin in 2014, but things went badly from there.

Munn also has a theory for the issues between Rodgers and his family. She thinks that some of the issues stem from members of the family not being able to handle Rodgers’ fame and success as an athlete because they had dreams of playing professional sports.

“There’s a lot of complications. I don’t think either side of the road is clean. It’s not OK when you try to stand on someone’s shoulders and try to throw dirt in their face, which is what I think they did with him,” she said.

Rodgers is now dating former race car driver Danica Patrick. Munn says the two don’t really keep in touch. At the time they broke up, one report said that family drama was the reason for the breakup. A story two years ago also suggested that Rodgers’ family did not like Munn.

Olivia Munn reportedly ‘in pieces’ over Aaron Rodgers having new girlfriend

Aaron Rodgers Olivia Munn Dubsmash

Aaron Rodgers was recently spotted on a date with a woman just months after he broke up with Olivia Munn, and apparently the actress has not been able to move on that quickly.

According to a report from OK! magazine, Munn is “in pieces” over Rodgers going on a date with another woman. Rodgers and Munn dated for around three years, and the NFL star is said to have left open the possibility of the two getting back together.

“Aaron told Olivia he was in love with her but that he needed some space; he promised to stay friends and said they would reevaluate things down the line,” a source told the gossip publication. “But instead he started dating and left Olivia feeling played.

“To see him move on with someone else in such a public fashion is like a knife through the heart. She’s trying to play it cool, but it’s obvious she’s still in love with him.”

Rodgers didn’t exactly try to keep his new flame a secret, as he was seen by multiple people on a date with former Harvard soccer player Marie Margolius a couple of weeks ago.

Rodgers and Munn broke up earlier this year, and there have been rumblings that family drama was the cause. The breakup seemed abrupt with how much the two loved public displays of affection.

Vikings troll Aaron Rodgers with tweet to ex-girlfriend Olivia Munn

The Minnesota Vikings just kicked up their rivalry with the Green Bay Packers another notch.

Actor/comedian Nick Swardson, a Minnesota native, shared a photo on Twitter Wednesday of him in a Vikings hat with his arm around Olivia Munn.

Munn is the ex-girlfriend of Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

The Vikings decided to get in on the fun. They commented on the tweet, saying that both Swardson and Munn were always welcome at their games.

So now that Munn is no longer with Rodgers, the Vikings are trying to convert her as a fan? That’s just cruel.

Rodgers and Munn split earlier this year, reportedly over family issues.

Aaron Rodgers’ relationship with Olivia Munn was said to be one of the reasons the Green Bay Packers quarterback had a falling out with his family, and a report about why the couple split seems to confirm that.

A source close to both Rodgers and Munn told Us Weekly that Rodgers is the one who broke up with the actress, and the family drama played a role.

“The big issue is that Olivia doesn’t get along with his family,” the source said, via Jaclyn Hendricks of the New York Post. “They think she’s controlling.”

Leading up to and during the NFL season last year, Rodgers’ personal life became a hot topic of conversation after his younger brother Jordan aired out some dirty laundry while filming for “The Bachelorette.” Jordan revealed that Aaron no longer speaks to him or several other members of the Rodgers family, and there has been speculation that the feud had something to do with Munn.

Rodgers’ father, Ed, confirmed a report about Aaron that painted the Pro Bowler in a very negative light last year, though Ed did not say whether Munn had anything to do with Aaron’s strained relationship with his family. If Rodgers suddenly reconciles with Jordan or other members of his family, it’s a pretty safe bet that his relationship with Munn was one of the biggest issues.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and his longtime girlfriend, actress Olivia Munn, have reportedly decided to end their relationship.

According to People Magazine, Rodgers and Munn have “amicably” decided to go their separate ways but remain close friends. They had been dating for more than two years.

The news comes as a major surprise, as Rodgers and Munn were fairly open about their relationship and often shared flirty videos on social media. There were rumors earlier this year that the couple had gotten engaged, but Munn put those to rest with a funny post on Instagram.

Leading up to and during the NFL season last year, Rodgers’ personal life became a hot topic of conversation after his younger brother Jordan aired out some dirty laundry while filming for “The Bachelorette.” Jordan revealed that Aaron no longer speaks to him or several other members of the Rodgers family, and there has been speculation that the feud had something to do with Munn.

Rodgers has been focused on trying to stay in shape this offseason and said last week that he is emulating Tom Brady’s training schedule.

Aaron Rodgers’ girlfriend Olivia Munn has Packers tradition

Aaron Rodgers’ girlfriend Olivia Munn has developed a tradition of sorts on social media recently during the Packers’ winning streak.

Green Bay was once 4-6, at which point Rodgers was struggling and there were questions about what was wrong with him. Many pointed the finger at Munn, saying the girlfriend was a bad influence and the reason for his struggles. Well Rodgers has proved everybody wrong.

The former NFL MVP has caught fire and thrown for 24 touchdowns and just one interception over the team’s last nine games. They’ve won eight in a row.

After some of the recent wins, Olivia Munn has posted an image along with green and yellow hearts to reflect the Packers’ colors.

Here’s her tweet after the Packers somehow beat the Dallas Cowboys last weekend:

She posted this two weeks before that after the win over the Lions:

She also sent this tweet after the Packers beat the Lions to clinch the NFC North. Her tweet references her boyfriend’s comments earlier in the season saying that Green Bay would need to run the table, which is exactly what they did.

Aaron Rodgers-Jordan Rodgers feud has to do with Olivia Munn?

Aaron Rodgers Olivia Munn Dubsmash

Now that Jordan Rodgers officially became the last man standing on the latest season of “The Bachelorette,” his brother Aaron is going to be faced with more questions about his personal life than the Green Bay Packers quarterback cares to answer. Heck, even Aaron’s girlfriend is getting dragged into the mix.

Jordan and Aaron have a strained relationship. Jordan revealed as much during an episode of “The Bachelorette,” even hinting that Aaron and the entire Rodgers family don’t get along. Why? That’s what all of us nosey people want to know, and one gossip report claims the rift centers around Olivia Munn.

In an episode that aired on July 18, Jordan brought his now-fiancee JoJo Fletcher to meet his family in California. Ed Rodgers, the father of Jordan and Aaron, raised some eyebrows when he said “fame can change you.” According to US Weekly, a family insider claims the Rodgers family does not like Munn, Aaron’s longtime girlfriend, because she “has a strong personality and every meeting she has had with them has gone badly.”

More from US:

A show insider says the clan even squabbles over who started the fight. “The family says Aaron stopped talking to them,” notes the insider. “While Aaron says they don’t talk because his family doesn’t like Olivia.” (Says a Munn source: “Aaron makes his own decisions and wouldn’t be swayed by Olivia.”)

In any case, the drama has left Jordan, 27, and Fletcher, 25, “incredibly stressed,” continues the source. “The family is torn apart, and it’s playing out in the media.”

While we have no way of confirming that, a recent feature from Kate Dries of Jezebel noted how the relationship between Aaron, Jordan and the Rodgers family seemed fine a few years ago. Things started to go south right around the time Aaron and Munn got together.

Of course, we’re not going to get a confirmation or denial from the Packers signal-caller. He already made it very clear how he feels about his younger bro airing out family drama in public.

Aaron Rodgers’ girlfriend Olivia Munn had rough week

Aaron Rodgers Olivia Munn

Aaron Rodgers’ girlfriend Olivia Munn had a rough week full of engagement rumors, but at least she handled them well.

Things started on Tuesday when a report went viral saying that Munn and Rodgers were engaged. The two have been dating since early 2014, so an engagement wouldn’t be too surprising, but the timing would be questionable given that Green Bay is still in the middle of their season.

After the story circulated, Munn decided to address the rumors on Instagram with a humorous post. She shared a screenshot of a text conversation she had with her mother:

“Colberto” apparently was a misspelling of Stephen Colbert. Munn decided to have further fun with it by getting the actual TV host to text Munn’s mother. Colbert even used the “Colberto” name and played on the engagement joke.

The engagement rumor concerning her and Aaron Rodgers may have been a nuisance, but Munn proved she still can make everything fun. Well played, Olivia.
