It's all about faith, family and football, minus the family for Aaron Rodgers. The New York Times got ahold of Rodgers' father, Ed, who confirmed that his son hasn't spoken to anyone in his family since 2014.

“Fame can change things,” Ed told the Times, suggesting that the beginning of Aaron's relationship with actress Olivia Munn coincides with their family fallout.

The Bleacher Report had an article go viral last year saying that the fallout was bad enough that Aaron skipped his grandpa's funeral. It also included an interview with former Packers tight end Jermichael Finley, who called Aaron a “very sensitive” and “self-centered" person.

All of this, of course, is the result of Aaron's younger brother, Jordan, who started talking about family problems on The Bachelorette.

Ed didn't provide details as to why they had a falling out, only describing things as "complicated" and “It’s complicated,” and they're "all hoping for the best.”

Meanwhile, Aaron is playing out of his mind and has the Packers one win from playing in the Super Bowl. He has 24 touchdown passes and 1 interception in his last nine games.
