Shailene Woodley & Aaron Rodgers have a ‘different, non-traditional relationship’

aaron shailene4

Back in November, Aaron Rodgers got Covid and he was symptomatic. He went into quarantine and missed several Packers games. That alone would have been a big sports story, but as it turned out, he lied to the press about being “immunized,” and he was (and still is?) refusing to get vaccinated for Covid. When he began sharing his anti-vaxx beliefs, everybody yelled at him for being a moron and then he talked about feeling “crucified.” It was truly a bonkers situation. There was also speculation that perhaps his fiancee Shailene Woodley had convinced him to avoid the Covid vaccines, or that they share a similar anti-vaxx mentality. We still don’t know, but it definitely felt like Aaron’s bullsh-t put a strain on their relationship and engagement. They were reportedly spending less time together, and now this curious People Mag story popped up:

Aaron Rodgers and Shailene Woodley are making their relationship work on their own terms.

“They have a different, non-traditional relationship,” a source close to the Big Little Lies actress, 30, tells PEOPLE. Rodgers, 38, just celebrated a birthday on Dec. 2. and the Green Bay Packers quarterback was spotted out and about without his leading lady. Woodley also did not acknowledge his birthday on her social platform, but, according to PEOPLE’s source, that means nothing.

“Shailene and Aaron are still together. It’s not odd they don’t post about each other on their birthdays in that sense, and are very private about things,” the source tells PEOPLE.

A different, non-traditional relationship? Shailene wasn’t seen anywhere near Aaron on his birthday? She didn’t post anything on her social media for his birthday? Yeah, it’s not a “non-traditional relationship,” they’re probably not even together at this point but they haven’t done the official break-up yet. I can’t even imagine what that’s like, although I bet Danica Patrick could enlighten Shailene. After all, it definitely seemed like he phased out Danica as he was phasing in Shailene.

    They are both insufferable and he is a HUGE disappointment.

  2. Kati says:

    Not to take anything away from how bonkers he is, but he only missed one game; not several.

  3. Bettyrose says:

    I was prepared to mock her stunted emotional development but it doesn’t sound like she said these things?

  4. Bestette says:

    She’s trying to lowkey out him bc in her eyes he fumbled their whole plan.

    “ They have a different, non-traditional relationship”

    ………OK so which one cheated and when are we finding out?

    Seriously though, whenever PR starts floating stuff like this something’s up.

  6. HandforthParish says:

    I’m sure I’ve read they have just gone through a different non-traditional break-up?

  7. steph says:

    She’s smart for keeping quiet during all of Aaron’s drama.

  8. Amy Bee says:

    Seems like the relationship is being phased out. She’s supposed to be a progressive, being with anti-vaxxer, anti-woke Rodgers is not a good look for her.

      I’ve worked with Shailene quite a bit and while she is very progressive she’s definitely anti-vax. She has a lot of weird beliefs.

      • Bettyrose says:

        That’s exactly my impression of her, a perennial adolescent who’s figuring out the world through exploration of the esoteric but no one challenges her silliness and instead people print her nonsense, thereby reinforcing her beliefs in said nonsense.

      • ANON says:

        Yup. She strikes me as a nincompoop. Him too.

      • Jaded says:

        Who can forget the “I eat clay and suntan my lady bits” nonsense.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      Some people are so “progressive” that it becomes a circle. The extreme left and extreme right have a lot in common. There are a lot of “progressive” anti-vaxers because they say they don’t want things they don’t understand in their bodies, and they can’t grasp how vaccines and science work.

      I used to listen to The Model Health podcast every once in a while….and then he started talking about how masks aren’t good for your breathing and i realized the host had gone around the bend to crazytown.

    All it means is that their contract hasn’t reached the end date.

  10. AmelieOriginal says:

    So they’re breaking up and the announcement is coming in the next few days right? It will be obvious if they don’t spend the holidays together and Shailene is papped in one place and Aaron in another place. I don’t think any of us are surprised, we were confused at them being together and engaged in the first place. They might share similar anti-vax views but that’s not necessarily enough for happy ever after lol. I think it was a pandemic hookup that turned into something a bit more long term due to quarantine and lockdown, Shailene wasn’t working and Aaron wasn’t playing football. Now that they’re both more or less back at work, the relationship fell apart due to distance and they realized they actually have nothing in common apart from being anti-vax.

    • SarahLee says:

      Well, the Packers play in Green Bay on Christmas Day, so unless there is a shot of her in a suite, they aren’t spending the holiday together.

  11. Lena says:

    I don’t get it. Just because they don’t post on social media about their Birthdays that means they broke up? It what world? I never post about My husband and we are very happy. It’s just why would I if he won’t see it. Maybe they want be private (horrors to gossips I know but that’s how I would be if I were famous). And we haven’t always spent birthdays together because of work/other commitments. But always give presents of course. But I know other couples that don’t. And that’s okay too.

    “…It’s not odd they don’t post about each other on their birthdays in that sense, and are very private about things,”
    ? Shes gone on social media talking about his body in great detail. They did an interview about their relationship in Disney world too. But they’re private? This source is trying to get ahead of speculation on their relationship status due to no social media post or them being spotted out together

    • Bettyrose says:

      I hear you but celebrities are notoriously childlike when it comes to the currency of attention and praise.

  13. jferber says:

    Different, non-traditional in that they broke up and he has a new girlfriend? That kind?
