Aaron Rodgers led the Green Bay Packers to a playoff victory against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night, but there were several important people who do not cheer him on in the stands: his family.

In a new profile piece in the New York Times, Rodgers’ father, Ed, spoke out about the rift in his family, who made headlines when his other son, Jordan Rodgers, spoke about it to his now-fiancee yo-Yo Fletcher on the last season of “The Bachelorette.”

“On the news is enough for us,” Ed said of his sons separate fame.

Though he called the national story with his family feud, “strange,” Ed added, “It is good to have it all come out.”

He added that, “the Airing of public laundry is not what I would have chosen.”

The chiropractor noted that he does not think that it is necessary to talk about family things in public,” but to say “Fame can change things.”

Aaron has reportedly not spoken with his family since 2014, around the time that he went out with actress Olivia Munn.

But he is estranged from his family, Aaron remains close to his hometown of Chico, California, and recently recorded a supportive message for the players on the high school football team.

“It’s just like the old Aaron, really,” his father said of the dear video.

As for the question of whether the family can move forward together, Ed said, “It’s complicated. We are all hoping for the best.”

Aaron himself has remained tight-lipped about the gap, but he told WISN of the Jordan, in July 2016, “as far as such things go, I’ve always found it a little inappropriate to talk openly about some things, so I’m — I’m not going to talk about that stuff, but I wish him much success in the league.”
