JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers may already be breaking up, with reports that the latest Bachelorette couple has crumbled under the pressure of going public and is now calling off their wedding.
The couple just met and fell in love before an audience of millions of viewers on the latest season of the ABC reality show, but now that same spotlight could be leading to the end of the relationship for JoJo and Jordan. A new report from Life & Style magazine claims that the couple has been fighting nearly non-stop and that Jordan regrets her decision to pick Jordan.
“JoJo has accepted that she hasn’t found her Prince Charming in Jordan,” the source said (via Celeb Dirty Laundry). “She’s told him that he was a complete disappointment and that she regrets ever giving him her heart.”
But though the report claims that JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers will be breaking up, fans won’t see them split up just yet. The source said the Bachelorette couple came to an agreement to keep up the appearance of a happy relationship that will allow them to stay in the spotlight.
“They’ve agreed to stay together for at least a year and transform their relationship into a business deal,” the source said. “Endorsement deals are already coming their way, and JoJo and Jordan are going to milk them while they can.”
This is not the first time that JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers have been hit with break-up rumors. Just days after the season finale of The Bachelorette last week, there were already reports that the couple was on shaky ground and headed for a split. A report from Hollywood Life claimed that JoJo was wary of Jordan’s shaky relationship past, which included a very public allegation of cheating from one ex-girlfriend.
“Things are off to an OK start with JoJo and Jordan but it’s all far from perfect,” a source told the celebrity news site.
If the break-up rumors are true, it would seem to confirm the longstanding reports that Jordan Rodgers only went on the show to get famous, not to find a wife. Even before the show premiered, there were reports from insider Reality Steve that Jordan was hoping to parlay the fame of his visit into a career in show business.
“…But just after hearing all this stuff about Jordan, I hope JoJo has developed some thick skin because she’s gonna have to put up with a s*** ton of tabloid coverage blasting this guy in the next few months. I’m sure she’ll stand by him and choose to believe the stories aren’t true, but really? You think every single one of these girls is just gonna be making stuff up about the guy? Horrible way to start a relationship. Like I said, be careful JoJo. You’re in for one bumpy ride.”
There seemed to be at least a bit of truth to that rumor when Jordan signed on as a commentator for ESPN’s SEC Network. Though Jordan is a former college football quarterback — and the younger brother of Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers — it’s highly unlikely he would have gotten the job without his Bachelorette appearance.
The rumors have now caught up to Jordan Rodgers, who tried to clear his name in an interview with People magazine.
“I definitely wasn’t on the show for fame,” Jordan said. “My goal every step of the way was to be open and honest with JoJo and to fall in love.”
If JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers are truly headed for break-up, the couple is doing a diligent job covering their tracks for now. The Bachelorette couple continues to make public appearances and JoJo has shared plenty of intimate pictures of the two together on her Instagram page.
