Jordan Rodgers’s Brother Luke Hints at Cause of Aaron “Fallout” on ‘Bachelorette’
The investigation into what really went down between NFL star Aaron Rodgers and his family is still ongoing, but we did get some new details on tonight’s Bachelorette 2016 Hometown Dates.
At first, his younger brother, JoJo Fletcher’s frontrunner Jordan Rodgers, seemed eager to avoid the subject of family drama. He even brushed the Bachelorette off when she pointed out a picture of the pro athlete on the wall of his high school.
It’s then JoJo who first reveals some key information when, while discussing Jordan’s behavior with the ABC cameras, she notes he hasn’t had a relationship with Aaron for the “past year or two.” We have a vague timeline, people!
A woman after our own hearts, the Dallas gal didn’t let up at the Rodgers family homestead. First chance she had to chat one-on-one with third brother Luke, she brought up He Who Must Not Be Named (aka a certain Super Bowl champ).
“It’s something we don’t really like to talk about a whole lot,” the eldest bro explains. “It pains both of us not to have a relationship… we miss our brother. I trust that God brings things full circle and wish that everything would get back to us being a family.”
From that, we can gather the brothers used to have a much better connection, and something in particular must have happened. That’s further confirmed with the following Luke statement:
“[Jordan’s] someone with integrity and he sticks up for his family — whether it’s myself and my folks or for someone he loves,” he gushes. “He will go to battle for you.”
Was that a dig at Aaron not having integrity? Sure sounds like Jordan had to stick up for his family in a situation recently. And Luke wasn’t done yet.
While chatting with Jordan after that, he brings up this ominous “fallout” once more.
He states, “We all walk through the stuff we’ve walked through as a family. We deal with the fallout, and as a big bro I just want you be insanely happy.”
Whatever the real issue is here, it’s clear the former athlete longs for a better connection with his sibling.
“It would have been nice to share JoJo with not only my parents and my brother Luke, but Aaron, as well,” he concludes to the ABC cameras. “I miss my brother a lot — especially in moments like this because my family means so much.”
