There for the wrong reasons! Jordan Rodgers, an early front-runner on season 12 of the Bachelorette, has his eye on a prize — and it isn’t JoJo Fletcher, sources exclusively reveal in the latest issue of Us Weekly.
After Us broke the news in March that former NFL quarterback Rodgers, 27, would court her on the ABC series, Fletcher, 25, received “multiple warnings” from pals about her suitor’s shady intentions, a source says.
“Jordan was seeing another girl,” reveals a second insider. “He only went on the show to land sports commentator gigs.”
Rodgers’ ex Brittany Farrar echoed the accusations in an Instagram post after the May 23 premiere. “Riding the bench doesn’t get in the way of a relationship, but cheating does,” the Nashville-based personal trainer wrote, including Rodgers’ handle. She added the tags: “#alwayswantedtobefamous #tuneinnextweekformoreBS.”
Rodgers, who had a short-lived two-year pro football career, is the younger brother of Aaron Rodgers, the quarterback for the Green Bay Packers. On Monday night’s episode of the Bachelorette, Chad Johnson, this season’s villain, commented: “The best thing about Jordan is his brother. The worst thing about Jordan is he’s not his brother.”
Still, the gossip and allegations didn’t deter Texas real estate agent Fletcher from handing Rodgers the coveted first impression rose. As Fletcher tells Us: “I was indifferent to the rumors.”
