Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has reportedly reunited with his former girlfriend, “Gossip Girl” actress Jessica Szhor.
Rodgers and Szohr reportedly dated in 2011, but they broke up due to differences in their schedules, Us Weekly reports. However, the pair began dating again over the holidays.
“They got back together over the holidays,” a source told Us Weekly. “They spent New Years together with a bunch of mutual friends. They broke up [in 2011] because her schedule was crazy for awhile and they just couldn’t stay together in that situation but now they have been spending their free time together and things feel good. They fell right back into it.”
On Jan. 27, Rodgers and the 28-year-old actress reportedly attended the after-party for the upcoming film “That Awkward Moment” at Lucky’s Bowling Alley in Los Angeles, Us Weekly reports. An eyewitness confirmed that “Aaron and Jessica walked in holding hands.” The new couple spent time with Taylor Swift, who is good friends with Szohr.
"Taylor was overheard giving [Jessica] relationship advice in the ladies room,” the source told Us Weekly. The group went bowling and had pizza together.
Szohr is best known for appearing on "Gossip Girl" from 2007 to 2012, on which she played the role of Vanessa Abrams. More recently, she had a part in the 2013 comedy “The Internship.”
The news of Rodgers’ new girlfriend comes just months after rumors that the 30-year-old may have been involved in a gay relationship with his former personal assistant, a man named Kevin Lanflisi. According to The Fame Driven, a gossip website, Rodgers’ relationship with Lanflisi, who was also his roommate, ended after he refused to publicly acknowledge their relationship.
In a December radio interview with ESPN 540 in Wisconsin, Rodgers denied that he was gay. “I’m just going to say I’m not gay,” he said, via For The Win. “I really, really like women.”
