Aaron Rodgers & Shailene Woodley reportedly Have Ended their Engagement
According to In Touch Weekly, after nearly two years together, the “Divergent” star, 30, and the NFL MVP, 38, have called off their engagement. “They’re extremely different people with busy careers, and there were hurdles that they couldn’t conquer,” a source close to Rodgers told Individuals, adding, “They’re very different people with busy careers, and there were difficulties that they couldn’t surmount.” They’ll stay friends; there’s no bad blood or drama between them. They couldn’t make it work.”
For months, there has been conjecture about the former couple’s problems after they did not appear to spend the Green Bay Packers quarterback’s birthday in December together. According to a source at the time, Woodley and Rodgers were “still together” but had a “strange, non-traditional relationship.”
“It’s not odd they don’t post about each other on their birthdays in that way,” the insider said, adding that the ex-couple is “extremely discreet about things.” According to sources, the “Big Little Lies” star and the 2011 Super Bowl champion did not agree on politics, but they “agreed to disagree.”
“They’re not talking about their politics, and they never have,” a source told People in January when Rodgers acknowledged he had not received the COVID-19 vaccine. “They had a lot of disagreements. They agreed early on to agree to differ about things rather than debate them.” “You can’t change [Shailene’s] mind,” the source continued, “so Aaron hasn’t even tried.”
In the year 2020, Woodley and Rodgers began dating in secret. The actress was sighted in Green Bay, Wisconsin, in October of that year, according to the sports website Awesemo.com. Rodgers then casually acknowledged his “fiancée” without naming her while winning the Most Valuable Player award during the NFL Honors in February 2021. Soon after, a source verified to People that the couple was indeed engaged.
“They’re pleased together,” a source told the publication at the time. “It’s understandable that Aaron proposed so quickly. “When you know, you know,” says the narrator. Rodgers dated Olivia Munn from 2014 to 2017 and Danica Patrick from 2018 to 2020, while Woodley dated rugby player Ben Volavola from 2018 to 2020.
