JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers are reportedly headed for an early break-up, with rumors that the Bachelorette contestant feels betrayed that the man she picked was really just playing her during the shooting of the show and has his eyes on something other than a wedding.
There have been reports of tension with the latest Bachelorette couple dating back to even before they got engaged before an audience of millions on the most recent season of the ABC reality show. There were rumors that Jordan Rodgers was really just trying to use the appearance to kick-start his career in television, with reports that he had been dating other women right up until his departure to appear on the show.
One of the biggest bombshells came from Brittany Farrar, an ex-girlfriend who very publicly accused Jordan of being unfaithful. As Celeb Dirty Laundry reported, Farrar is again in the center of the Bachelorette drama as JoJo has reportedly come to believe the allegations and sees Jordan as a cheat.
“Tabloid reports reveal that while Jordan is still living in Dallas, close to his estranged fiancée, Jojo actually kicked him out of their love nest. Apparently, the couple had a huge blow-up when Jojo learned that Farrar was telling the truth and her future husband is a bit of a player.”
The report added that JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers are not yet ready to make their break-up a public matter. They are reportedly keeping it secret at least a little longer, coming up with an exit plan while still milking the publicity for as long as they can.
This is now the second time in the last few weeks that a report claimed JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers are breaking up. A previous story from early August claimed that after the excitement of their nationally televised engagement wore off, JoJo was left with some lingering doubts about Jordan.
The couple was also starting to fight more often, the insider said.
“Things are off to an OK start with JoJo and Jordan but it’s all far from perfect,” a source told Hollywood Life.
Around the same time, Jordan had been doing a bit of damage control regarding the cheating allegations from Brittany Farrar. He went on the record to defend himself, saying that there was no truth to any of the reports of his cheating.
“There’s been a lot of really harsh and very untrue allegations along the way,” Jordan said (via Us Weekly). “It’s [about] moving forward and any of that is so not true that it’s not even worth time … I’m just happy to start this new life with my fiancée and that’s what I’m focusing on.”
But the whispers about Jordan’s alleged cheating and his using The Bachelorette as a springboard to success may have caught up to JoJo. Jordan has already launched his television career, taking a job as an analyst on ESPN’s SEC Network (which is also the home to Tim Tebow).
Jordan has pushed aside allegations that his Bachelorette appearance was a ploy to get himself a job on television, with the former college football quarterback saying that was his career plan all along.
“My career doesn’t change,” Rodgers said (via Us Weekly). “I own a company that does nutrition coaching, and I’ll be doing that from Dallas as well. That company is building and growing — [it’s] something I’m passionate about. And then I’ve been doing broadcasting for the past year — doing radio for ESPN and doing some TV stuff here and there — and I’ll be working with ESPN and SEC Network as a college football analyst.”
But as always, the rumors of a breakup for JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers don’t seem to match up well with their public appearances. The two are still making the media rounds seeming very much in love, and JoJo has shared a number of very happy-looking pictures of the two on social media.
