When Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen announced their divorce in October 2022, the rumor mill up until that point suggested that the Brazilian model had reached her breaking point with Brady coming out of retirement from the NFL. However, while that may very well have contributed to the downfall of the nearly 14-year-long union, new reports suggest infidelity on Bündchen's part.

In the wake of the split, in November 2022, Bündchen was pictured with her jiu-jitsu instructor Joaquim Valente in Costa Rica, who she began training with a year prior. It wasn't until June 2023 that the couple went official with their relationship, but sources close to Brady's camp told the Daily Mail over the weekend that the future Hall of Famer has questioned the exact timeline.

"If she wants to have people think she has been dating Joaquim only since June, so be it," the source claimed, "But they have been together longer and they aren't taking it slow. Tom has accepted it."

"Tom and Joaquim are not friends—but Joaquim is around his kids, so Tom has to find the good in him and does believe he is a good guy," the source continued. "If Joaquim ever becomes a father figure to his kids, Tom will be able to adapt."

Although the news broke several days earlier, by Wednesday it finally caught the attention of social media, as Brady began trending on X, formerly Twitter. Many of those who weighed in expressed shock and varying degrees of outrage that even a chiseled, six-foot-four athlete can fall apparent victim to infidelity. After all, if Brady can't keep his marriage together, what hope does a regular sucker have?

But at least one user saw the alleged scandal as more of a "glass half full" scenario, pointing out that if "a jiu-jitsu instructor can take Tom Brady’s wife, you can do anything."

In either case, it seems like Brady is moving on with his life. The 46-year-old has since been rumored to have dated Russian model (and Bradley Cooper's ex) Irina Shayk. Though, it's unclear if they're still an item.

"Tom has been dating and is all about growing from his relationship with Gisele and moving it to a place where they can co-parent," the source added.
