Gisele Bundchen plays down new romance after Tom Brady: It's because of my son that I met Joaquim Valente
23 November, 2022
News of Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen's split and eventual divorce came as a shock to many last month, but there are rumours that the latter has already moved on after being spotted on holiday with jiujitsu instructor Joaquim Valente.
The gossip pages and social media comments sections have already gone into overdrive, despite some sources playing down the suggestion that Valente is anythingother than a coach for Bundchen and Brady's children. Just weeks after finalizing the divorce, Brazilian model Bundchen is vacationing with the children in Costa Rica. Along for the ride are Valente and another trainer.
No new love
A source told 'Page Six' that rumours of a relationship between Bundchen and Valente are "completely false". However, the photos from the vacation have certainly got people talking.
"Joaquim and his two brothers have instructed Gisele and the children in martial arts for the past year and a half," the source also said.
In a previous interview, Bundchen explained her son's role in meeting Valente. It is worth remembering also that her children with Brady are homeschooled.
"It's actually because of my son that I met Joaquim," stated Bundchen.
"I have a friend who told me about the Valente brothers and their martial art school, and since I wanted to steer my almost teenage son in the right direction, I thought he might be interested in this."
