Patrick Mahomes and his younger brother, Jackson, have had their fair share of icy exchanges in the past.
One particularly infamous one went viral some time ago and led to speculation about where the pair’s relationship truly stands.
Both have tried to quell the speculation of a rift, but a video that surfaced this week reignited the chatter.
The clip in question features Patrick approaching his wife, Brittany, and Jackson during a Kansas City Chiefs game. The difference in how he spoke to both was telling.

Understandably, fans had a lot of reactions to the exchange.
They immediately took to social media to respond.
“Aight bro”…. Definitely nothing going on here. You know… along those lines…

He’s more concerned tik tok’ing then being supportive, how shocking.

Big picture, the Mahomes family are no strangers to the limelight. Just this week, Brittany went mega-viral over her wild boat party photos.
Jackson, similarly, is also often a mainstay in the news cycle. Though unlike Brittany, he generally trends for really horrible things that prove to be a huge blight on the family name.
Patrick is unquestionably one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time already – and he is still in the prime of his career.
He has many more years of NFL dominance remaining.
But unfortunately, Patrick is a package deal with his family. Namely, his younger brother.

As the Chiefs win and succeed, Patrick continues to inadvertently give more and more shine to Jackson.
Is the pair’s relationship in a good place right now? It’s unclear.
Either way, though – it figures to be a lock that Jackson will be at all of Patrick’s games next season no matter what. He loves the spotlight too much not to be.
