Formerly the subject of relentless rumors about his sexuality and alleged relationship with former “roommate” Kevin Lanflisi, the Green Bay Packers’ superstar quarterback Aaron Rodgers is reportedly dating a brand new lady by the name of Olivia Munn.
Mysteriously released from the grasp of his “good Christian fiancé” Destiny Newton, Rodgers was spotted with the 33-year-old actress earlier this week at a group dinner, where sources report them “stealing kisses” and “acting very much like the perfect couple.”
Us Weekly reports exclusively:
Munn and Rodgers spoke onstage together last month at the 49th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas, where they were also photographed hanging out backstage.
33-year-old Munn’s new romance with the Green Bay Packers’ starting quarterback, 30, comes just two weeks after Us exclusively reported the actress had split from RoboCop star Kinnaman.
“They were actually close friends before they even started dating,” a source told Us of Munn and her ex, “so they’ve been able to stay really good friends even through the breakup. It’s just made things much easier for both of them.”
This just four months after Rodgers’ loosely connected “relationship” with power beard Taylor Swift. And what ever happened to good ole Destiny Newton, the ex-finacé who is now allegedly being kept silent about her relationship with Rodgers under a strict gag order?
Back in December, sports gossip blog Terez Owens reported that she was “furious” about the gay rumors tailing Rodgers, but “was confident Aaron hasn’t kept any secrets from her.” “She’s still planning to wed Aaron in 2014, and has no plans to break up with him over these reports,” it read.
A suspicious Queerty reader writes in:
Seems to me Rodgers and his PR people are clearly working together to give him a straight image. US Weekly and the sports media are hypocritical — they know Rodgers is gay yet they feed these lies to the general public.
Oh? Is that so? Or are we just grasping at straws here?
Either way, the silence of both Destiny Newton and Rodgers’ last rumored male companion Kevin Lanflisi is worth noting.
As for Lanflisi, a quick scan of his Twitter account reveals that he’s become a budding poet. It’s a creative new career choice that lends itself to the kind cryptic messages he’s such a big fan of posting.
Lanflisi did not respond to a request for comment on Aaron Rodgers’ love life for this post. In lieu of his opinion about Olivia Nunn, enjoy some original words from the newfound poet below:
