We're used to drama in Bachelor Nation, but most of the time, it's relegated to those who've been on the show. That's not the case if your big brother is an NFL star, though. It looks like the family feud between Jordan Rodgers's family and brother Aaron Rodgers is raging on, and now their dad has spoken out about the rift.

Ed Rodgers spoke to the New York Times over the weekend about the apparent feud between his second son and the rest of the family. Apparently, Aaron hasn't been in much communication with his family since becoming a football star. Ed said simply, "Fame can change things."

Fans weren't even aware of the rift until Jordan Rodgers opened up about his family to JoJo Fletcher on The Bachelorette, revealing that while he was close to his eldest brother Luke, Aaron hadn't had much to do with the fam since he made it big as the Green Bay Packers quarterback.

On the show, Jordan explained to his future fiancée, "It's just the way he's chosen to do life. I chose to stay close with my family and my parents and my brother [Luke]."

Even though things may not be A-OK between Aaron and the rest of his family, he's at least trying his hardest not to exacerbate the situation. An insider close to the athlete told People magazine, "Aaron has never wanted want to air this out in a public forum. He's going through great precautions not to make things worse. You're not going to see him on Oprah crying about all of this. He will deal with his family issues privately."

Dang. We really would have loved to see him crying with Oprah.

Anyway ... even though Aaron and Jordan haven't spoken in who knows how long, it doesn't mean that a reconciliation would be impossible. Jordan has even spoken out about wanting his bro at his wedding with JoJo.

Last August, Jordan revealed to People, "There's no scenario in which I wouldn't want my entire family at a wedding, so absolutely, that's something all of our family wants and hopes for at some point."
