As it usually happens between celebrity couples who split after several years, one of the parties is always the first to send messages to the ex in different ways, usually through social media.
After divorcing Tom Brady after 13 years of marriage, Gisele Bündchen decided to go on vacation to Costa Rica, take out her best bikini and even let herself be photographed with another man, in what many thought was her new partner: her jiu-jitsu instructor, Joaquim Valente.
Bündchen is showing off to her ex-husband
On her publicized trip to Costa Rica, Gisele took the two children she had with Brady, Vivian and Benjamin, whom she took to a dinner she had with Valente and a friend of his. A close source told the site Page Six that everything Gisele is doing is completely on purpose.
“It certainly looks like Gisele is showing off – and showing Tom what he’s missing. All indications are that Gisele is sending Tom a message“, the insider said.
Does she want to make her ex jealous?
One version is that Gisele could be wanting to make her ex-husband jealous, because although in some media it has been refuted that she has a relationship with Valente, the reality is that she has a history with her coach that goes back more than a year.
In 2021, Bündchen and Valente did a photo shoot for Dust magazine and she even took jiu-jitsu lessons from him. Bündchen and Brady used to travel frequently to Costa Rica, but the fact that Valente currently lives in Miami gets many thinking about what’s going on beyond the public eye.
“It always seemed odd to me that one day the marriage would abruptly end,” said a source close to Brady.
Among celebrities, these messages are often sent as a way of saying “look what you’re missing”. Gisele has already made the first move, is it Tom’s turn?
