Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers may have just been outed by his ex-roommate/personal assistant/boy toy Kevin Lanflisi. The Fame Driven was pointed in the direction of a few deleted tweets from Lanflisi who’s been Rodger’s personal assistant and roommate for the past several years.
Aaron has attended numerous sports award shows with Kevin, always color coordinated and without any double female dates, including the ESPY’s. Kevin was also the first person Aaron embraced when the Packers won the Super-bowl in 2011. I just find it really strange that as of late there has been many bitter subliminal tweets on Kevin Lanflisi’s twitter alluding to a relationship much deeper than a friendship he had, with who I perceive to be Aaron Rodgers, because Kevin has NEVER once tweeted about having a girlfriend, just mainly about the Green Bay Packers, Aaron Rodgers, and Justin Bieber’s music and sitting front row at Bieber’s concert. There has been speculation for years here in Wisconsin that Aaron is gay.
Does going to awards shows with your guy friend and wearing matching outfits mean you’re gay? Maybe they just want to look cute together. Ever considered that? Well, Fame Driven did some more digging and found an interview from MilwaukeeMag where Rodgers talked about meeting a famous actor who’s played a superhero:
“I kind of judge how those people are based on how they are to people like Kevin,” Rodgers explains. “Kevin, he’s not a famous person. I want to see if they give Kevin the time of day, or if they big-time him.”
To be fair, that’s a good test to see whether people are dickheads or not. In a 2008 interview with Sporting News, Rodgers mentioned the deep conversations he had with Kevin.
I’ve’ve got a roommate, a guy I met in town. He works for the Packers now as an athletic trainer, but he was interning when I met him and we just hit it off. He’s been great for me as far as great conversations outside of football. Our friendship goes a lot deeper than what we do.
Kevin and Aaron have since parted ways giving rise the speculation that they “split.” It’s been suggested that Kevin wasn’t too happy that Rodgers backed out of coming out of the closet over the summer.
Of course, this is all rumor and conjecture. And it’s not like you can tell the guy is gay based on how he plays. According to stereotypes, he should be running around all fairy-like like Philip Rivers (below) and not manning up after a broken collarbone and throwing 48 yard touchdown passes to beat the Bears.
