Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers sent shockwaves throughout the NFL last year when he revealed that he was engaged to actress Shailene Woodley.
As recently as early November Woodley was still lambasting the media for its coverage of her beau.
That said, in recent weeks, folks noticed something odd.
Rodgers and Woodley have not been spotted together and the pair has not acknowledged each other on social media. That led to chatter regarding a possible breakup.
According to People Magazine, all the separation talk is for naught. The pair, apparently, is still going strong.
“Aaron Rodgers and Shailene Woodley are making their relationship work on their own terms,” the report noted.
“‘They have a different, non-traditional relationship,’ a source close to the Big Little Lies actress, 30, tells PEOPLE. Rodgers, 38, just celebrated a birthday on Dec. 2. and the Green Bay Packers quarterback was spotted out and about without his leading lady.
“Woodley also did not acknowledge his birthday on her social platform, but, according to PEOPLE’s source, that means nothing. ‘Shailene and Aaron are still together. It’s not odd they don’t post about each other on their birthdays in that sense, and are very private about things,” the source tells PEOPLE.’”
So there you have it – everything is fine. Or at least that’s the company line at the moment.
Paulina Gretzky knows how to celebrate a birthday right. https://t.co/luTTz3X5aB

In retrospect, Danica Patrick’s reaction to news of Rodgers and Woodley getting engaged was quite on point.
Over the next few days and weeks more information regarding Rodgers and Woodley should emerge. If everything is fine, then that will become readily apparent. And if it’s not – that will reveal itself as well.
