Tom Brady’s wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen, received a lot of negative attention for criticizing the Patriots’ receivers after the team lost the Super Bowl. The matter dragged out for a few days, and reports said the Patriots players weren’t happy with her.
Several months later, we’re learning that Tom Brady wasn’t happy with her either, no surprise.
Tom Curran of Comcast New England wrote on Friday about a story told to him by Comcast Bay Area reporter Matt Maiocco.
Apparently Brady addressed the Gisele incident at a panel a few months ago.
“Just before she goes to bed, she says, ‘Yeah, people were following me and I just said something I shouldn’t have said,’” Brady recalled, according to the report.
He answered, “‘I don’t care really what you said. Just go to bed.’”
“I woke up the next morning, I tapped her on the shoulder [and asked], ‘Why did you say that?’ She was talking about the best player on our team, Wes Welker, yeah. That was my most recent memory.”
As if losing the Super Bowl in heartbreaking fashion wasn’t enough, Brady had to deal with that mess. Things between Gisele and Welker (and presumably Tom) reportedly are cool now, but that video will likely linger.
