Olivia Munn and boyfriend of three years Aaron Rodgers have split
Hollywood actress Olivia Munn and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers are no longer together. The couple, who were recently rumoured to be engaged, have called it quits after three years. "They have amicably ended their relationship of three years," a source close to the situation confirmed to PEOPLE exclusively. The source adds that the pair "remain close friends and wish nothing but the best for each other moving forward."
Olivia Munn and Aaron Rodgers began dating at the end of 2014
Olivia, 33, and the NFL star, 36, reportedly met at the Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas. The actress later revealed that she had no idea who he was then. Speaking to Conan in 2015 she revealed: "I said, 'So what do you do?' And he said, 'Oh I play football.'" Olivia said she followed up with, "'Cool. What college?' And he's like, 'Oh, no. I play professional.' And I was like, 'Cool, what position?' 'Quarterback.' 'Cool.' Like that was kind of it, not knowing that he's like Super Bowl MVP or any of those things."
Since then the couple have been the subject of engagement rumours, the most recent being just two months ago. "We are not engaged. Not engaged," she told Ellen DeGeneres in January, adding that the rumour started with a false story in a magazine - which snowballed to such an extent that even her family started to believe it.
The actress and NFL star dated for three years
"Everybody started going with it. It was kind of strange," she said. "I didn't think anybody believed it until my family started texting me. My sister said, 'This is so stupid. Why would anybody think this? You're not engaged, it's so stupid.' And then the next text after that was, 'But seriously, are you engaged because I'm like seeing it everywhere?'"
The Ride Along 2 actress then revealed that even her mother started to believe the hype. "My mum believes everything she reads online. Everything she reads online!" she said. "So no, she didn't believe it, or she did believe it, but I was able to correct her and she knows for sure that it's not (true)… As soon as I say 'No, it's not true' she believes it."
