Every few weeks, a wild rumor circulates about Olivia Munn and her superstar boyfriend, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Generally, these rumors coincide with a big game or after Rodgers has a particularly bad performance. In November, Packers fans flooded an article in Milwaukee’s Journal-Sentinel after a loss to the Broncos, a game that saw Rodgers throw for 77 yards in arguably his worst start as an NFL quarterback. That ultimately led to several outlets, including ESPN, questioning whether Munn was a distraction for the former MVP.
She responded in kind on Twitter.
Sadly, that was not a deterrent for the media, some of whom make a living with juicy gossip stories that rarely materialize. On Monday, OK! Magazine revealed that Munn and Rodgers were engaged, offering no details or concrete sources other than a flimsy quote from a “friend” — “Olivia wasn’t expecting it, but they’re so in love he just couldn’t wait.” To be clear, this is the same publication that also announced the engagement of Serena Williams and Drake, who, by all accounts, weren’t even dating at the time (or ever).
Munn, who’s quite active on social media, decided to post a conversation with her mother as a rebuttal to the rumors.

Answering yes or no to personal questions can be tricky because if you say "No" it means whenever you say "No comment" that kind of becomes your default "Yes". But since I'm doing press for the next few days, I didn't want to have to answer the same question over and over. So instead, I'm going to let my text conversation with my Asian mom help me out.✌️#Colberto
“Answering yes or no to personal questions can be tricky because, if you say ‘No,’ it means whenever you say ‘No comment,’ that kind of becomes your default ‘Yes,'” Munn wrote on Instagram. “But since I’m doing press for the next few days, I didn’t want to have to answer the same question over and over.

Suffice it to say, Aaron Rodgers and Olivia Munn are not engaged. And even if they were, they probably didn’t tell OK! Magazine about it.
The Packers play the Cardinals Saturday night for a chance to go to the NFC Championship. Perhaps we can get to Sunday without another Munn-Rodgers rumor. Nah, probably not.
