Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen separated because Gisele disagreed with Brady’s decision to keep playing for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers just a few weeks after he said he was retiring. The NFL universe and many celebrities have expressed their opinions regarding their divorce. Former UFC fighter Jake Shields believes that their divorce was not caused by Tom’s decision to keep playing.
The internet is rife with speculation that Gisele had a romantic relationship with her jiu-jitsu instructor, Joaquim Valente before she split from Tom. Although there has been no official confirmation that the couple is dating, a number of occurrences have sent the rumors into motion.
Bündchen first released a video of her academy training sessions with Valente in February and commented that she felt “stronger” after working out with him. “I believe the more tools we have in our toolbox the better,” she wrote in an Instagram post. “I feel stronger, more confidence and empowered since I started practicing self-defense.”
Furthermore, according to former UFC fighter Jake Shields, a romantic relationship between Bundchen and her ju-jitsu instructor would not be a good idea. Shields shared his opinions on the topic of when a woman gets involved in the gym, saying, “As someone who’s done Jiu-Jitsu for over 20 years, I can tell you it rarely ends well when guys bring their girls to training.”
Shields also added, “If you’re the toughest guy at the gym it’s probably fine but otherwise don’t do it.” However, Bundchen is not likely to be bothered by Shields’ opinions about her predicament. Because she does what she wants and does not have to listen to what others say about her personal life.
