Green Bay Packers superstar Aaron Rodgers and girlfriend Danica Patrick of NASCAR fame appear to be no more. Though neither have addressed the situation in any official capacity, Internet detectives discovered Patrick recently unfollowed Rodgers on Instagram, suggesting the two have had a falling out. The power couple had been dating since December 2017. They even bought a house together last winter, paying $28 million in cash for their beachfront home in Malibu.
It’s unclear how and when they split up, though SJ Lynn of Sporting News notes Rodgers and Patrick haven’t been pictured together since their vacation to Machu Pichu in April. Lynn also made the interesting observation that Rodgers is still among Patrick’s 767,000 Instagram followers. Some may interpret that as Patrick having an axe to grind, though it’s also possible Rodgers—who hasn’t posted on the app in over a month—simply hasn’t gotten around to pressing “unfollow” yet.
Patrick isn’t the first celebrity Rodgers has dated—he previously had a fling with actress Olivia Munn—and Internet rumblings suggest she may not be the last. Take this one with a giant grain of salt, but Terez Owens and Barstool Sports (neither touted as purveyors of hard-hitting journalism) have both indicated Rodgers is already seeing someone else. That someone appears to be Golden Globe-nominated actress Shailene Woodley, best known for her starring role on HBO drama Big Little Lies.
Between his rumored breakup with Patrick and recent Madden ratings snub, it’s been a whirlwind month for Rodgers, who placed a respectable 16th at the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship in Lake Tahoe last weekend.
