Jordan Rodgers is basking in pre-marital bliss with fiancée JoJo Fletcher after winning “The Bachelorette,” but there is still plenty of drama surrounding the former NFL player. Jordan came under fire several times during his time on the ABC dating show, with questions raised about his relationship with an ex and his activity on Raya — he was able to brush most of it off, but it seems some of Jordan’s skeletons are coming out of hiding.
Brittany Farrar, who dated Jordan prior to his time on the show, spilled some serious tea about their relationship and subsequent split on Instagram on Thursday. She posted a video of the college football correspondent placing an order for a large bouquet of roses. The flowers in question were not for her, but rather “the girl he cheated on me with in Louisiana.” The mystery woman’s identity remains unknown. Farrar took a jab at her ex for “pretending to be one of the Green Bay Packers,” joking that it was “the closest he’s ever been to making an NFL team.” She then bashed Jordan for refusing to admit that he had been unfaithful, writing that he “dragged” their relationship into the limelight when he agreed to be on “The Bachelorette.” Farrar also posted a photo of a lengthy statement, outlining their split. She wrote that after they ended things she “gave back his old mattress and chia seeds” and thought she had washed her hands of him until he mentioned his relationship with her on the ABC dating show. Farrar claims he “lied” about several aspects of their relationship, which prompted her to stand up for herself.Sports Illustrated, she revealed that Jordan “had been on our radar” for quite some time before he was hired. Druley said that she was initially concerned that his appearance on the ABC show may affect how he was seen in the eyes of SET Network’s viewers and, as such, held off on hiring him. She remains confident in his abilities and announced that his first day with the network would be Tuesday, Aug. 23.
“When he became available, he came to Charlotte. He walked into my office and the first thing I said to him [jokingly] was that his hair might be too high for our network. Despite that, it was clear he had a real passion and a deep knowledge of college football. The audition was really good — rare that someone walks in off the street and does an audition that we would be willing to air,” she said.
News of his hiring came just one week after a conference call during which Jordan answered fans burning questions about his career. In addition to a brief career in the NFL, the “Bachelorette” winner has been brought on by ESPN to do guest broadcasting spots and has done work as a college football analyst. In June he announced that in conjunction with his sports analyst work, he had been helping athletes, celebrities and regular people maintain healthy lifestyles through diet and exercise.
“I am really passionate about that and I love the aspect of changing other people’s lives,” he shared during the Garbage Time podcast.
