It's no secret that Aaron Rodgers and his Bachelorette-winning brother Jordan have a fractured relationship. Jordan admitted as much when trying to win a reality show the heart/shared fame of JoJo Fletcher on the show last summer. "Me and Aaron don't really have that much of a relationship," he said, during an episode of the dumb but embarrassingly compelling competition. "It's just kind of how he's chosen to live his life."

A few months later a Bleacher Report story provided details of Rodgers' broken family relationship by giving several messed up examples of it, including the fact that his family doesn't have his cell number, that he missed his grandfather's funeral, and that a Christmas gift sent to Aaron and girlfriend Olivia Munn was sent back to his parents, unopened, in February. To follow that up, just a few days ago, his dad confirmed that the two sides aren't on speaking terms to The New York Times.

While no specific reason has been given for the cause of the rift, leading to speculation with varying degrees of recklessness from the masses, People Magazine published a story on Wednesday that claims the whole thing was caused by an argument between Aaron and Jordan. And, like a lot of intra-family squabbles, it sounds like it was over some inconsequential BS.

From People:

“[They] have always been competitive, and they’re always trying to one-up each other,” says a source close to the Green Bay Packers quarterback. “It’s been that way since they were kids. They got older, and the stakes got higher.”

The rivalry came to a head about two years ago, when the brothers got into a disagreement that soon became a “blow-up,” the source tells PEOPLE. “It wasn’t an argument about anything all that interesting. Some things were said on both sides that were regrettable.”

While we're still lacking details of what that argument was over, People's source further went on to say, "Their parents got involved in the middle of it. Everyone needed a cooling-off period. It could have ended there, but some people chose to go public with it, rather than keeping it a private family matter. And here we are."

That last bit, the one about not keeping it private, seems to echo what Aaron told media members who inquired about the discord towards the end of The Bachlorette season, which Aaron didn't really seem to give a crap about, last summer. "I’ve always found that it’s a little inappropriate to talk publicly about some family matters," he said last July. "I’m not going to speak on those things, but I wish him well in the competition."

As for Aaron, it's unlikely that he'll be providing further commentary on the familial drama anytime soon as he's competing for something a little bigger than a reality show competition; the NFC Championship, which the Packers will play the Falcons for this Sunday afternoon.
