Every time the Green Bay Packers are on national television, which is a whole helluva lot, Aaron Rodgers gay rumors explode on social media and in search engines. And the last 24 hours have been completely nuts with people constantly searching for ” Aaron Rodgers gay, ” “ Aaron Rodgers gay rumors, ” “ Is Aaron Rodgers gay, ” “ Aaron Rodgers athletic trainer boyfriend ” and etc.
For the past two or three years I’ve written about this phenomena, which occurs every Sunday. Since last night, I’ve seen a season’s worth of activity regarding this rumor.
Why? Well, one website claims to have the evidence that will confirm all the Aaron Rodgers gay rumors.
According to a very high traffic website, with a ton of credibility within the LGBT community known as The Queerty, Rodgers….
was one of the NFL stars expected to come out of the closet this summer, and a cyber sleuth site is all but confirming it with a wealth of dirt that suggests he’s also in a gay relationship.
The Fame Driven was apparently tipped off by an anonymous “spy,” who pointed to a number of now-deleted tweets from the Twitter account of Kevin Lanflisi, the man who worked as Rodgers’ “personal assistant” and lived in his home as “a roommate”
According to the spy:
Aaron has attended numerous sports award shows with Kevin, always color coordinated and without any double female dates, including the ESPY’s. Kevin was also the first person Aaron embraced when the Packers won the Super-bowl in 2011. I just find it really strange that as of late there has been many bitter subliminal tweets on Kevin Lanflisi’s twitter alluding to a relationship much deeper than a friendship he had, with who I perceive to be Aaron Rodgers, because Kevin has NEVER once tweeted about having a girlfriend, just mainly about the Green Bay Packers, Aaron Rodgers, and Justin Bieber’s music and sitting front row at Bieber’s concert. There has been speculation for years here in Wisconsin that Aaron is gay.
Rodgers first referred to the super-cute Lanflisi as his “roommate” in a 2008 interview with Sporting News, saying they “just hit it off” when Lanflisi was interning for the Packers. “He’s been great for me as far as great conversations outside of football,” he said. “Our friendship goes a lot deeper than what we do.”
And unless you’re Aaron Rodgers himself- or Kevin Lanflisi, or confidants very close to them, you don’t know what Rodgers’ sexuality is. Until we get official confirmation, the Aaron Rodgers gay rumors are still in fact rumors. Just another storyline today for when Rodgers and the Pack take on Jay Cutler and the Chicago Bears in a NFL postseason play-in game
