You may or may not have come across an odd internet rumor during the past few days suggesting the Pro Bowl talent was gay, but Rodgers wanted to address the ‘crazy rumor’ this afternoon during an appearance on a local radio show.
While the MVP talked about Green Bay’s upcoming Wild Card playoff game against the San Francisco 49ers, Rodgers also dropped random nugget suggesting he had seen the internet rumors and wanted to clear up any confusion regarding his sexuality:
He is aware of the internet story. “I’m just going to say I’m not gay. I really really like women.” ~ Aaron Rodgers
Rodgers said the question arose after he commented about the positives and negatives of being in the public eye, which included a text from Justin Timberlake:
So here’s how it came up. Fan question about the positives & negatives of fame for Rodgers. (He got a text from J Timberlake after Bears W). “There isn’t a whole lot of separation from your public & private life you get crazy rumors that swirl around you from time to time.” Rodgers
I feel like this needs a ‘the more you know’ sound effect and a shooting star from NBC or the story won’t be complete.
