It seems that the two-year romance between Aaron Rodgers and Danica Patrick recently come to an end.

As speculation escalated throughout the day, neither Aaron nor Danica had confirmed the split. However, fans were buzzing over what might have been a significant clue uncovered on social media, and at least one outlet soon claimed to have confirmed that the two broke up.

According to an insider who was contacted by Hollywood Life, the former NASCAR driver and the Green Bay Packers quarterback have split. This supposed confirmation comes not long after some followers on Instagram had noticed that Danica, 38, had unfollowed Aaron, 36, on the popular photo-sharing site, starting on July 16. As of this writing, Aaron still follows Danica on the platform.

Likewise, neither one of the two has shared anything in recent weeks that would confirm that they are still dating. The last post that Aaron has on his Instagram page that includes Danica is from March 31. The last Instagram post of hers that includes him is from April 11.

As soon as the aforementioned change was noticed, people started speculating on social media that the couple had ended their two-year relationship.

Early Thursday evening, People was able to confirm that the two had ended things. A representative for the former NASCAR driver acknowledged that the couple had called it quits.

At this point, it is not known for certain when the breakup occurred. So far, neither athlete has spoken out about the speculation. His representative had not responded to questions from People as of this writing either.

Danica acknowledged her romance with Aaron in January 2018 after buzz over the possible relationship had built up among fans of the two. The two first met at the ESPY Awards in 2012, and once they started dating, they gushed over one another frequently and were big supporters of one another.

Until recently, it does not seem that fans of the pair had picked up on any significant signs of trouble. If anything, many seemingly thought that an engagement and wedding were likely on the horizon for the two. Aaron and Danica seemed content together in their spring posts, but it appears that things have taken a turn since then.

Now that folks are noticing this shift, it remains to be seen if they will confirm their split in a personal official statement. While Danica had been known to gush over Aaron throughout the course of their relationship, it doesn’t necessarily seem that either of them will dish out any dirty details about what went wrong.
