As most people know by now, Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen’s divorce is final after a quick settlement, and Gisselle has already moved on.
Her new man, Joaquim Valente, was her jiujitsu teacher, and they are now spending time together on vacation in Costa Rica. According to TMZ, the trip was supposed to be with Bundchen and the Brady kids, but she had other plans, which has those close to Brady wondering why Valente was invited.
A Brady source told TMZ that the quarterback’s camp is not buying it, and questioned “why this Miami guy is in Costa Rica with her.”
The source added, “It always seemed weird she just one day abruptly ended the marriage.”
Bundchen’s camp says they aren’t dating, and Valente is there with his brothers, but not many people believe in coincidences.
BSO was one of the first to report about Bundchen’s new man.
Gisele Bündchen may have a new man in her life after her divorce from Tom Brady, stepping out with jiu-jitsu instructor Joaquim Valente on Saturday. The duo grabbed a bite to eat at Koji in Provincia de Puntarenas with the 42-year-old model’s two children — Benjamin, 12, and Vivian, 9, — and Valente’s pal.
Bündchen showed her stomach in a cropped top and flowing black pants on the dinner date. The Valente Brothers co-creator, for his part, was all smiles in a gray shirt and shorts.
Brazilian gossip site Purepeople reported Wednesday that the pair are dating. While it is unclear when the pair’s possible romance began, Bündchen and Valente did a shoot for Dust magazine with his brothers, Pedro Valente and Giu Valente, in 2021.
In February of the following year, the businesswoman tried her hand at jiu-jitsu, calling Joaquim, Pedro and Gui “awesome teachers” via Instagram.
“Thank you @ValenteBrothers for … making training so much fun,” she continued while sharing footage of her fighting skills at the Valente Brothers facility in Miami, Fla. “I am looking forward to keep improving. Let’s go!”
Brady reacted to the video via Twitter at the time, writing, “My days of leaving dishes in the sink are numbered.”
