Gisele Bündchen and Jiu-Jitsu Instructor Split, Blame The Tom Brady Roast For Friction In Their Relationship

Jun 14, 2024

Supermodel Gisele Bündchen has reportedly called it quits with her boyfriend, jiu-jitsu instructor Joaquim Valente, following the intense scrutiny their relationship faced during Tom Brady’s Netflix roast last month.According to reports, the “spotlight was too much” for Valente, who is described as a “regular guy” not accustomed to such public attention. An insider revealed, “Joaquim’s a regular guy. He’s not used to all the attention he was getting.”The roast, which aired on May 5th, featured numerous jokes and jabs directed at Bündchen’s romance with Valente, her former jiu-jitsu trainer. Comedians like Kevin Hart and Nikki Glaser implied that Bündchen had an affair with Valente while still married to Brady.Hart quipped, “You know who else f–ked their coach? Gisele. She f–ked that karate man.” Glaser joked, “How much would it suck for Tom… omg, just knowing your ex-wife’s new boyfriend could beat your a— while eating hers.”Sources claim Bündchen “blames the break on Tom” for agreeing to the roast, which put “a target on Joaquim’s back.” The supermodel was reportedly “deeply disappointed” by the “disrespectful portrayal” of her family during the event.While the exact timing of the split is unclear, Bündchen and Valente haven’t been photographed together since late April. Their romance began in June 2023, months after Bündchen’s divorce from Brady in October 2022 after 13 years of marriage.Bündchen had vehemently denied cheating on Brady with Valente, branding the affair rumors as a “lie” and stating, “This is something that happens to a lot of women who get blamed when they have the courage to leave an unhealthy relationship and are labeled as being unfaithful.”

Tom Brady Admits Regret Over Roast’s Impact on Family

In the aftermath of the roast, Brady acknowledged the negative impact it had on his family, stating, “I didn’t like how my family was affected by it, and I wouldn’t do that again.” The retired NFL star shares two children with Bündchen and has another child from a previous relationship, all of whom were referenced during the roast.While the roast covered various controversial topics, including Brady’s crypto losses and the Deflategate scandal, the jabs at Bündchen’s personal life seemed to strike a nerve. The event highlighted the intense public scrutiny surrounding the high-profile divorce and Bündchen’s new relationship.
