Recently, Shailene Woodley and Aaron Rodgers reportedly split after being engaged for about a year. But US Weekly reports that they've continued to spend time together and may even be open to a reconciliation. On Tuesday, February 22, the former couple were seen in Los Angeles at Erewhon Market, causing speculation about their relationship status.
“Things are different now, but they were definitely over,” a source told Us Weekly. “Now that Aaron is in [the] off season, he has more downtime and can focus more on a relationship. Shailene is understanding and open — she hasn’t shut the door completely or [she] would’ve never agreed to meet up with him.”
The actress and football champ are now “talking things through and trying to keep things private.” Though they broke up, apparently “their love for each other never went away.”
The source added, “No one, including them, knows what the future holds — they can possibly get back together or they can decide they aren’t meant to be. That’s up to them to figure out.”
The pair were first noted as a couple in July of 2020, and confirmed their engagement in February of 2021. They broke it off a year later, apparently coming into conflict as lockdown lifted and their daily lives together changed.
“Shailene has been super busy with work,” another insider said to US Weekly at the time. “Everything was so different during lockdown, and they had been living in their bubble. Friends of Shailene didn’t believe Aaron is the best match for her.”
Rodgers recently courted controversy for his anti-vaccine rhetoric and for allegedly lying about his vaccination status against NFL protocols for COVID-19. In a recent episode of The Pat McAfee Show, Rodgers said he didn't realize his position would have a negative affect on other people in his life, including Woodley.
“I didn’t realize the kind of shrapnel they’d be taking,” he said. “Understanding kind of the entire gravity of the situation I was thrust into and decided to speak on multiple times had an effect on a lot of people. To those people, I just say, ‘I’m sorry.’”
