Aaron Rodgers, an NFL player, and Shailene Woodley, an actress, reportedly ended their engagement just one year later.
The 38-year-old football quarterback’s separation was verified by a person close to him. According to the source, “It just wasn’t working; it was an amicable split.” They are extremely different individuals with demanding occupations, and there were challenges they were unable to overcome. There is no animosity and no drama, so they will continue to be nice. Simply put, it wasn’t successful for them.
The couple split up after a year of being engaged
Before making a surprise revelation about their engagement in February of last year, when Rodgers accepted the ‘Most Valuable Player’ award at the 10th Annual NFL Honors, the couple had maintained their relationship in secrecy for a considerable amount of time.
While winning the prize, he expressed his gratitude for the love and support received from both his girlfriend and his team.
The 30-year-old actress only came up about their romance after they made their engagement public.
Woodley claimed, “I didn’t really grow up with sports, especially American sports. “I never really considered it. I was aware of his love of football when we first met, but I had no idea what kind of fan he was. And I’m still learning all the time,” she acknowledged.
Even an insider claimed that the couple’s split was due to Rodgers’ decision to “put football first.” “Aaron put football first, and while Shailene is supportive of his work, they were hardly spending any time together. She believed he undervalued their bond. They were both unhappy, the insider said.
Woodley and Rodgers had very different opinions about certain things
A source recently revealed to People that the pair held radically different opinions on politics and society as a whole. When such discussions between them arose, they typically “agreed to disagree.”
The insider said, “They don’t talk about their politics, and they never really have.” They had many points of contention. They made the decision early on to not argue about disagreements.
The insider source stated of the Divergent actress, “She is not someone whose mind you can influence, so Aaron hasn’t even tried.”
The two recently announced their separation, several months after Rodgers received Covid 19, for which the NFL player was accused of lying and censured.
But Rodgers dispelled such rumors by asserting that he never lied and that it was a “personal decision.” “I follow my own beat of the drum. I absolutely believe in bodily autonomy, the freedom to make decisions about your body, and not having to comply with some woke culture or crazy group of people that tell you to do something, Rodgers said.
The representatives for both celebrities have resisted making any statements on the couple’s breakup right away.
