Let’s be honest. Spending the holiday months post-breakup isn’t always easy.
So, we can only assume that Danica Patrick, who parted ways with fellow Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series driver and boyfriend of nearly five years, Ricky Stenhouse Jr., earlier this year, had a difficult time transitioning into being single.
If you recall, a spokesperson for the female NASCAR and IndyCar driver announced the longtime couple’s separation on Dec. 17, saying the two drivers were “no longer in a relationship.”
Despite the split, it seems as though Danica’s broken heart may be on the mend, as rumors are now beginning to swirl that she has moved on with a new man.
A report by sports gossip blogger Terez Owens, shared by The Green Bay Press-Gazette, claims an anonymous source spotted Danica spending time with Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rogers at the former NFL MVP’s supposed favorite Wisconsin-based restaurant after Christmas.
The same source also claims that an onlooker allegedly noticed the two stars “were all over each other — kissing, and they couldn’t seem to keep their hands off of each other.”
At this point, it is still too early to truly know whether or not the two star athletes are actually an item, and neither of the parties have confirmed that they’re dating. But, if it were the case, it wouldn’t be beyond the realms of possibilities. After all, both physically fit celebrities share ties to Wisconsin. Aside from Aaron playing for the Packers, Danica, who will retire from NASCAR this year, was born in Beloit.
Not to mention, she isn’t the only one out of the two to recently go through a breakup with a longtime significant other. Back in April, Aaron called it quits with actress Olivia Munn, whom he dated for three years. So, it could be that the two are just enjoying some time together, as friends.
Whatever the case, we think they would make a great team. But, then again, she is a Chicago Bears fan. So, perhaps it wouldn’t work out. What would you think if the two were an item?
