Aaron Rodgers & fiancee Shailene Woodley 'SPLIT because he put football first' & couple 'barely spent any time together'

Shailene Woodley and Aaron Rodgers have called it quits.

The engaged couple split because the Green Bay Packers player "put football first" and they "barely spent any time together," a source told In Touch Weekly.


A source told In Touch on February 16, 2022 that just shy of one year after their engagement, Shailene, 30, and Aaron, 38, have thrown in the towel and called off the nuptials.

"While Shailene is supportive of Aaron’s career, he put football first and they were barely spending any time together," the insider said.

"She felt he neglected their relationship. Neither of them was happy."

They added that the footballer is "an independent guy,” and "got cold feet" about the big upcoming plans with the Big Little Lies star.

A second source added that in the end they "couldn’t make it work."

“There were too many obstacles. They’re both adults and decided to part amicably."

Shailene confirmed that she is engaged to Aaron Rodgers in February 2021.

Confirming the news on Jimmy Kimmel, she said: “So it’s kind of funny. Everybody right now is freaking out over it and we’re like, ‘Yeah, we’ve been engaged for a while.

“He’s, first off, just a wonderful, incredible human being. But I never thought I’d be engaged with somebody who threw balls for a living.

"Like, I never thought as a little girl… ‘Yeah, when I grow up, I’m gonna marry someone who throws balls! Yeah!’ But he’s really just so good at it."

Aaron then thanked his "fiancée" during his acceptance speech at the NFL Honors in February 2021.

'2020 WAS DEFINITELY A CRAZY YEAR'

While making a virtual appearance to accept the 2020 MVP of the NFL honor, Aaron said: "It's an honor to win this award for the third time.

"2020 was definitely a crazy year filled with lots of change and growth, some amazing memorable moments.

"I got engaged and I played some of the best football in my career."

Though the Packers' Super Bowl bid ended in heartbreak as they were edged out by the San Francisco 49ers 13-10 at Lambeau Field on January 21, Aaron won MVP for a fourth time this year.

The fourth gong marks what has been a glittering career, with his others coming in 2011, 2014 and 2020, the former seeing the star bring his team a Super Bowl W.

Aaron was drafted into the NFL back in 2005 after being selected in round 1.

IS AARON VACCINATED?

On November 5, 2021, Aaron announced he was not vaccinated although earlier saying he was "immunized," per E! News.

On The Pat McAfee Show, Rodgers said he is allergic to an ingredient in two of the three approved vaccines.

"I believe strongly in bodily autonomy and the ability to make choices for your body, not to have to acquiesce to some woke culture or crazed group of individuals who say you have to do something," Rodgers declared.

"Health is not a one-size-fits-all for everybody and for me it involved a lot of study in the offseason" he continued.

Shailene defended her then-beau on Instagram Stories: "Literally, you all need to calm the f**k down," she wrote in a post on those trying to "disparage" Aaron.

That being said, rumors that the pair were suffering relationship problems emerged the next month, per In Touch.
