Now that Jordan Rodgers and “Bachelorette” beauty JoJo Fletcher can publicly celebrate their engagement, it’s unlikely the couple will receive a congratulations card from NFL star Aaron Rodgers and girlfriend Olivia Munn.
Jordan, who popped the question to his reality TV girlfriend on Monday’s season finale, revealed to reporters on a conference call Tuesday he would like his older brother to attend their presumptive 2017 nuptials. But given the nature of their “complicated” relationship, it could take some time to rebuild the bond.
“Absolutely. There’s no scenario in which I wouldn’t want my entire family at a wedding,” Jordan said. “That’s something all of our family wants and hopes for at some point.”
But does the same go for Munn?
“The Newsroom” actress reportedly is in the middle of the Rodgers family drama, according to Us Weekly, following meet-and-greets gone awry. Sources told the magazine the girlfriend of the Packers quarterback “has a strong personality and every meeting she has had with them has gone badly.”
The report says the Rodgers clan continues to play a heated game of he-said, they-said, though it’s unclear who started the feud. Jordan’s father, Ed, has cited fame (interesting word choice) as a possible factor in what tore his sons apart.
“The family says Aaron stopped talking to them,” a source said. “While Aaron says they don’t talk because his family doesn’t like Olivia.”
The mounting tension is said to have JoJo and Jordan “incredibly stressed” as the clan’s dirty laundry “is playing out in the media.” That ignores the fact that the world was essentially clueless to the divide until Jordan laid it out on the popular show.
There does appear to be a time when Jordan and Munn were friendly. The actress has posted bikini-clad selfies with Jordan’s ex-girlfriend, Brittany Farrar, even after the couple’s well-publicized breakup, and still follows Farrar on Instagram.
The Nashville-based trainer, who dated Jordan in 2014, blasted his “Bachelorette” appearance on social media earlier this year.
“Riding the bench doesn’t get in the way of a relationship, but cheating does. #yourpitchisntperfect @jrodgers11 #alwayswantedtobefamous #dreamscometrue #tuneinnextweekformoreBS,” she wrote on Instagram.
JoJo confronted Jordan about the cheating allegations, but the pair seemingly moved past them. Jordan was hired as a college football analyst for SEC Network — an ESPN property that has the same Disney corporate parent as “The Bachelorette” — and the couple is in the midst of moving to Dallas. And yes, Jordan’s in-laws are pressuring him to become a Cowboys fan.
“That’s not out of the question,” Rodgers said Tuesday, though his brother, you know, plays for the Packers. “I know her family has already been heavily persuading me in that direction. So I imagine that’s coming shortly. Yes.”
