“While Shailene is supportive of Aaron’s career, he put football first and they were barely spending any time together,” a source told the outlet of the pair's downfall. “She felt he neglected their relationship. Neither of them was happy.”
“There were too many obstacles. They’re both adults and decided to part amicably," another source told the outlet. An additional insider close to the former Hollywood couple emphasized that ultimately they just “couldn’t make it work."
In February of 2021, the Divergent star and the Green Bay Packers quarterback announced that they were engaged after keeping their relationship quiet. “I got engaged and I played some of the best football in my career,” Rodgers announced after accepting the award for Most Valuable Player the 10th Annual NFL Honors.
“We met during this whacky, whacky time and all the stadiums were closed that he was playing in," Woodley later revealed during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
“I didn’t really grow up with sports, especially American sports,” the activist continued. “It was never really on my radar. When we met, also, I knew he was a football guy, but I didn’t know like what kind of a football guy he was. And I’m still constantly learning.”
In November of 2021, Rodgers came under fire after the pro athlete tested positive for COVID-19 and revealed he had never been vaccinated. His former partner fiercely defended him, noting that people coming after him were trying to “disparage” Rodger’s reputation.
