Olivia Munn & Aaron Rodgers’ camps are trading shady, petty quotes

The ESPY Awards 2016

I’ve been waiting for this for a few weeks, the petty back-and-forth between the camps of Aaron Rodgers and Olivia Munn. While it was dumb/untrue to say that Olivia wasn’t famous on her own before she started up with Aaron, we should also admit that one of the things Olivia is famous for is leaking her side of the story to tabloids. Well, two can play it that game. First up, a “source close to Rodgers” spoke to People Mag.

As breakups go, Aaron Rodgers and Olivia Munn didn’t have a bad one.

“It wasn’t dramatic,” says a source close to Rodgers. “It simply came to an end. Aaron is happy and doing well, and he hopes that she is doing well, too.”

And despite reports that Rodgers wants to get back with Munn, the insider insists that the NFL star is ready to move on. “They haven’t been in contact for several days, and I don’t think that they’ll keep in touch,” says the source. “He’s definitely not trying to get back together with her. Not because there’s anything wrong with her or that he hates her, but they both want to move forward.”

Despite often being at the center of speculations that she had fueled a family feud between Rodgers, his dad and younger brother, Jordan Rodgers – who competed on JoJo Fletcher‘s season of The Bachelorette, Munn consistently supported her beau throughout their three year romance, without hesitation.

“This had nothing to do with Aaron’s family,” says the source. “He’s making personal decisions about the next steps for all areas of his life, but he’s going to keep the details about to himself right now.” But those next steps won’t include Munn. “This is a clean break-up,” the insider says. “He’s not looking back, and neither is she.”

Basically, Team Rodgers wants you to know that he probably dumped her and he isn’t looking to get back with her. He doesn’t wish her any ill will, but still. So what does Team Munn have to say? Basically, she dumped him and he’s been trying to get back with her, I think. A “source” spun a story to E! News. Some highlights:

She’s “doing well” and focusing on herself: Now that she’s single, she “is not communicating with Aaron as much as he would like,” the source says of the athlete, 33. “She feels like distance is best at this time….Olivia knew that the relationship was on the rocks the past few months. It didn’t feel good anymore, and they should have split up a few months ago. They were holding on to this idea of their relationship, even though they knew a breakup was bound to happen.”

She knows Aaron was not The One: “Olivia is not going to settle till she feels like this is the man she will end up with. Her eyes are open and she is very open to dating. She is good!”

A source close to Rodgers tells E! News: A source close to Rodgers adds that while he “loved” Munn and “the breakup was not easy,” he’s starting to pick up the pieces—carefully, of course. “The line of women he can choose from is endless,” the source insists, “but he is a pretty picky dude, especially at the level he’s at now.”

[From E! News]

The more their camps insist that everything is fine and they’re both fine and there is no drama, the more I’m convinced that this was a bad breakup. My guess is that Aaron did dump her, but who knows? This is gross: “The line of women he can choose from is endless but he is a pretty picky dude, especially at the level he’s at now.” But so is this: “she is not communicating with Aaron as much as he would like.”

Here’s Olivia at the Vancouver airport a few days ago:

    ‘He doesn’t hate her’
    I wasn’t thinking he did until now…

    There’s dirt here.

    • Alp says:

      Yep. The fact that we keep hearing how congenial it was definitely makes me think there was a lot of dirt they’re currently trying to get ahead of.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      Last week there were updates about him that he was working out with Nick Jonas in West Hollywood, getting facials in Beverly Hills and getting a stylist. Supposedly, that was her camp trying to fuel gay rumors about him.

  2. RussianBlueCat says:

    Let the games begin. This is going to get a lot messier.

  3. Jamie42 says:

    His gross comment is more gross than her gross comment.

    • detritus says:

      Way more gross.
      ‘His level’…. uh, and what level is that sir?

      Someone told him he was never going to get a better partner and it hit a nerve.

    • jinni says:

      Meh. If she was having her people saying she had a line of guys to pick from that want to be with her I doubt it would considered gross by anyone . She’d be lauded and no one would doubt guys would want her all while rattling off all the attribute she has that makes her such a catch.

      • doofus says:

        I don’t agree with this statement at all.

        Munn doesn’t get much love on any gossip site that I’ve seen and, especially on THIS one, I think she’d get shaded as much as Rodgers will be if she said something so gross/lame.

      • Valois says:

        doofus, lainey loves her for some reason.

      • doofus says:

        well, that’s one, then… 😉

        I find her to be annoying, myself. I don’t “hate” her, but she just tries SO HARD to be the “goofy/nerdy hot chick”, and I’ve thought that since her days on the video gaming show.

    • Kelly says:

      Just coming here to say the same thing!

  4. Nicole says:

    You’re both not as famous as your egos would like. Just stop.

    • jinni says:

      Let us revel in their pettiness.

      • Nicole says:

        Haha their petty is not as fun because again they aren’t that famous lol

      • jinni says:

        @Nicole: LOL Well they are all we have now. Jen and Ben refuse to be petty ( publicly anyway). Pitt made the court close the docs so the Jolie/Pitt divorce pettiness was cut short, though Pitt does drop some gems here and there with his ridiculous pr. I need to get my entertainment from someone.

  5. rachel says:

    “he can choose from is endless but he is a pretty picky dude, especially at the level he’s at now.” What a weird thing to say, It’s such a cliched bro language, It doesn’t ring true.

  6. trollontheloose says:

    that reads like any other PR post breakups “Focused on job-stop- women/men in line up-stop/but focused on work-stop-but will casually date-not so serious-stop-everything is fine=moveon-stop-but the other wants to get back-….but nah”

  7. Incredulous says:

    …Maybe he was sick of Japanese potatoes.

    • Keiko says:

      Lol. I’m Japanese, and I love potatoes both in the UK where I live and the actual authentic should-probably-be-sponsored-by-Goop bona fide Japanese potatoes when I go visit my grandparents in Japan, and yet my face hasn’t experienced the musical chairs that Olivia’s has. I feel so unblessed!

  8. Pumpkin Pie says:

    Why are these two relevant, may I ask?

    • Skins says:

      Well, he is a superstar NFL Quarterback who was playing last year at a level that not too many QB’s have ever reached. She is a maybe B-List actress who is pretty forgettable for the most part. I guess the combo made for some decent tabloid fodder for the last few years (before hooking up with her he was rumored to be gay) Being in Green Bay he was never really a huge star outside of football, so I guess this raised his profile a bit.

  9. Pyritedigger says:

    I am here that airport outfit though. So cute!

  10. AnotherDirtyMartini says:

    Oh, goody! Maybe his camp will spill it regarding the “potatoes”.

  11. Keri says:

    Hilarious, shameful and ridiculous all at once!

  12. littlemissnaughty says:

    Oh as if. Whenever people keep talking about how everything is fine, nothing is fine. If it were, you wouldn’t have to stress it this much.

  13. Kaye says:

    I kinda think she got her licks in early when it became known after the split that he was getting weekly facials and working out in Hollywood rather than with his teammates. He was also supposedly hanging out with two guys (whose names I didn’t recognize, but who are supposedly gay).

    Those comments were so widely – and promptly – disseminated that it felt like she had her PR machine all cranked up and ready to go.

    • NotSoSocialButterfy says:

      I wondered about that “next phase of his life” stuff…my first thought was, “Is he gay and ready to come out?” I’m not a big football fan (despite living in Green Bay), but I think other NFLers have come out publicly, haven’t they? It shouldn’t be the big deal it seems to be.

      • Bridget says:

        No. NFLers have not come out publicly. It would be a HUGE deal. There are no openly gay players on the active roster of any of the major sports here in the US (NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL).

      • susiecue says:

        ME too! Those are some strange quotes.

      • KB says:

        I think michael sam is the only NFL player to play professionally while out, but he was cut before the regular season started.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      ” he was getting weekly facials and working out in Hollywood”

      He wasn’t working out in just “Hollywood”. The rumor was “West Hollywood”…the proud safe haven for the LGBT community where the city police cars have rainbows on them. I think her team released those details, they were meant to be play into rumors about him. Very low blow, IMO.

    • Jeesie says:

      To be fair, she leaked that story after he started leaking stories about what a normal, non-Hollywood guy he was and how that was an issue between them. Playing into all the rumours about Munn corrupting him and being responsible for his estrangement from his family.

      Her leak shows that he’s more Hollywood than ever after the break-up, so it was never about her.

  14. WingKingdom says:

    Actually her statement very much sounds like he dumped her. That’s all the same kind of stuff I tell myself when I get dumped- well, it wasn’t good anymore! I knew we’d break up eventually! It’s not like he was The One!

  15. QQ says:

    Goddammit Don’t make me root for Olivia Munn, just Off GP!!!?! DONT YALL DARE!!! ( what in the B*tchmade hell , why are they releasing “statements from sources” who do they think they are? is this from people asking?.. about them? Really?)

    • antipodean says:

      Pardon my curiosity, QQ, but have you gone blonde now? You are looking terrrubly fierce in your avatar, if that is you. As for less and lesser, you are so right, who gives a tuppenny stuff?

      • QQ says:

        LOL Thanks Boo… Yeah I got the Purple out, it was not taking the color well and a reddish tint I don’t like kept crawling so I just took it for I’m just gonna let it grow more I guess?? *Shrug* (It’ll be on trend colorwise in a minute with ALL THE ROOTS)

  16. JaneDoesWork says:

    I tend to think that Olivia probably would have married him if he’d asked… but he didn’t want to settle down what with “a line of women” at his beck and call (blech, so gross.) Curious to know what actually happened though, I do think its sad.

  17. Chaine says:

    The DM has run articles about her several days in a row now with pix of her at a park with her dog and Keegan Michael Key. I am so scared for him! What is going on in this world…

  18. Sigh says:

    I think it’s as simple as Aaron had to pick between football (and football fame) and Olivia. He picked football. He’s such a weird dude about the Football aspect of his life too.

  19. Daisy says:

    The ego knows no bounds.

  20. Talie says:

    Lainey wrote this weird propaganda piece boosting her, essentially saying that Aaron is missing out because her star is rising. I had to stop myself from cackling.

    • Jessica says:

      Lainey has been in love with her for awhile now. Who knows why, since from what I can recall she never liked her way back when. And her “star is rising”? If “dating” one of the biggest names in the NFL didn’t give her a boost, I don’t see what will. It certainly won’t be from her so-called acting.

      • Jeesie says:

        Probably because she’s a rare Asian-American actress playing roles not specificly written for Asian women. There’s not many examples of Asian actresses playing roles that aren’t heavily influenced by their ethnicity.

        She’s the star of Shane Black’s upcoming Predator reboot, which is a big thing.

  21. Kk says:

    I don’t buy the gay rumors, but I wish it were true and he was going to come out. Aaron Rodgers is a superstar qb and is basically untouchable. He is the kind of player who could afford to be the first to come out.

  22. JK says:

    But who gets custody of their dog Chance? That’s the most important question!

  23. JFresh says:

    I want those sunglasses. Got brand info by any chance Kaiser? 😎

  24. Jessica says:

    She knew he wasn’t THE ONE? Well, duh. We all know that. And as for her team dropping the gay rumors, it just lets everyone know how she’s been lying for 3 years. Did that not occur to them?

  25. Lily james says:

    @JFreash: I think they are fendi

    • JFresh says:

      @lily James thanks! They don’t seem to be available anywhere… maybe they are a celebrity exclusive item

  26. D says:

    She’s open to dating? I bet she is. There are currently a few very famous, very wealthy men on the market. She’s a climber.
