Aaron Rodgers Outed as Gay?
After years of speculation, one source is claiming Green Bay Packers star quarterback Aaron Rodgers is gay and was recently outed by his ex-lover and roommate.
The gossip website Fame Driven reportedly received communication from a “spy” who claimed that Rodgers and his roommate, Kevin Lanflisi, have attended several sports awards shows together, including the ESPYS, and that Lanflisi was the first person Rodgers embraced after the Packers won the 2011 Super Bowl.
Lanflisi has been posting emotional tweets on his Twitter account that seem to imply he’s having relationship troubles:
All that time spent on “us” is now spent on “me.” Which means I have more time to exercise, read, write, dream and save..

Including one about his roommate:
My roommate. Nine days later, my sister. Everyone needs to calm the hell down. — Kevin Lanflisi (@KevinLanflisi) December 21, 2013
Still, it’s unclear whether he is referencing a relationship with Rodgers or someone else.
In an interview with Sporting News in 2008, Rodgers said, “I’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.”
If Rodgers and Lanflisi were in a relationship, it seems as though Lanflisi may be preparing to go public with it, at least according to a Sept. 30 tweet:
Silence always comes with an expiration date..
