Aaron Rodgers Gay Rumors: Did He and Boyfriend Kevin Lanflisi Break Up?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Rumors that Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is gay and has broken up with boyfriend Kevin Lanflisi - who doubled as Rodgers' "personal assistant" - are making the rounds on the Interwebs.

According to Lanflisi's Twitter account, something's definitely going down with his love life. But is it his relationship with Rodgers that he's referring to?

In September, Kevin Lanflisi tweeted:

Supposedly, Rodgers was one of the four gay NFL players who were set to come out over the summer, but the football star backed out at the last minute.

This alleged turn of events seems to have hurt his relationship with Lanflisi on both a personal and professional level.

Lanflisi has been the Super Bowl champion's plus-one at more than one awards ceremony, including the ESPYs in July.

Neither has shown up to such events with a female companion.

While that on its own may not be enough evidence to say whether Aaron Rodgers is gay, many have cited his conversation with MilwaukeeMag - when he said he judges people based on how they treat Kevin, who is "not a famous person" - as proof that the two are more than friends.

In the days following Rodgers' 30th birthday (December 2), Lanflisi took to Twitter to share more cryptic messages with his followers.

Additionally, Kevin Lanflisi announced that he has a new roommate now: His sister.

Rodgers hasn't commented on the latest questions about his sexuality. Given Robin Roberts' mostly warm reception to coming out, now might be a good time if he's ready to take that step. 

What do you think, THGers? Discuss in the comments ...

UPDATE: In an interview on Tuesday, December 31, Rodgers discussed the rumors briefly, saying he is not gay and adding "I really like women."

All gays are well, just GAY. As a medical pro, there is a chemical imbalance with the gay people.

There is no "chemical imbalance" with gay people. The "chemical imbalance" is with people like you, Even that spread hate. Just because you do not undersand gays and lesbians does not give you the right to preach your cracker jack medical pro comment. Where'd you get the degree, a gumball machine? (see how stupidity can be turned around)

Actually, to simply speak scientifically and putting aside moral positions/judgments, just on the basis of nature, it is contrary to the natural order/way of things. (Last time I checked, two y or two x chromosomes can't procreate.) Given that there are aberrations/mutations in nature which happen, for 'Even' to offer up an explanation to account for such cases which run contrary to nature is not hateful, nor judgmental on a moral level. Many gays themselves ask why they are the way they are. It's not necessarily hateful to posit an explanation (i.e., chemical inbalance, genetic predisposition, etc.).

Will we ever see a time when a person's sexuality becomes less important than the kind of person they are and what they acheive in life? I am a gay man and I don't care whether he sleeps with men or women. It's non of my ( or your ) business.

YES. ^^^^^ THIS. Completely agree. He's an amazing quarterback. I do not care how he spends his personal time or who he sleeps with.

I look forward to the day when witch hunts like this are not considered news or entertainment.

I guess they forgot to mention his Fiancée Destiny Newton who he has been in a relationship with for several years.

How do you figure? she has already said the rumors are ridiculous, Aaron has always kept everything personal even when it comes to football because that's his personality, I would absolutely be shocked if this was true.

"I’ve got a roommate, a guy I met in town. He works for the Packers now as an athletic trainer, but he was interning when I met him and we just hit it off. He’s been great for me as far as great conversations outside of football.
*Our friendship goes a lot deeper than what we do." how does Rogers say something like this and deny he's been in a relationship with Kevin? half of the NFL already just assumed anyway

Just come out all ready and get it over with. It's rather obvious by this point.

He has a Beautiful Fiancée, Im pretty sure he is as straight as they come.

Well if this is true, and Kevin is his boyfriend, then he is not going the right way about this at all. Either way I stand behind him. Go pack go!

I'd agree the cryptic tweeter things is not the right way to go about things. Hardly the first relationship to end because someone wont come out..but dont take it to media..

everytime you read something somebody is coming out as gay looks like everyone wants to be gay now its the big thing and look at what benefits you can get. but once the islamics take over they will all run for the closet

It is a well known fact that all men and women are born gay, or at least bi, and only have sex with the opposite sex for procreation. This is why men started playing football to begin with, so we could flaunt societys conventions in public and tackle each other in shiny tight pants right in front of the wives so many men are stuck with who couldn't give head OR run a decent pass route to save their lives. Happy new year!!!
