A potential distraction emerges for Tom Brady

We try to avoid the whole love-life angle of reporting on the NFL, unless there’s an off-field issue that could create a distraction for the player or his team.

When the issue involves one of the biggest names in the game, that’s a factor, too.

The folks at TMZ.com claim to have a photo of Gisele Bundchen, the wife of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, getting cozy with a man who definitely isn’t Tom Brady

It’s hard to tell what happened immediately before or after the picture was taken at an event in Paris.  But at the instant the shutter snapped, whatever was happening will require at a minimum a detailed explanation, other than “what happens in Paris stays in Paris.”

Brady is intensely private and likely will never comment on the situation.  But it would be foolish not to at least consider the possibility that this issue could create a possible distraction for him as the 2010 season heats up.

UPDATE:  An explanation via what purports to be Mrs. Brady’s official Twitter page.  “Guys, the photos of the Vogue party show Gisele with a longtime friend,” says the caretaker of the page.  “The angle in the photo is causing malicious comments.”

  1. Wait….what website is this? PFT or TMZ?
    Stick to football…..I’m certain Brady isn’t the only one in the NFL that has a personal life and may have personal issues.

  2. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.
    French kiss each other on the cheek all the time. Both of them in fact.

  3. BRAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAA!!!! This is awesome!
    Instead of the player running around being a Ho, the Ho is running around being a Ho!

  4. “We try to avoid the whole love-life angle of reporting on the NFL”
    What about those Shaun Smith stories?

  5. This is going to turn out to be one of those Euro “kiss on the face hello” things, taken at the exact right moment to seem shady.
    We know thick and greasy ain’t her type.

  6. Uh OH! I can’t imagine what kind of explanation there would be for that. And couldn’t she have found a less douchey looking guy to cheat on Tom Brady with?

  7. ouch. it’s bad enough to see that picture… but it’s way worse when the dude your wife is kissing is wearing the blazer with jeans.

  8. I can’t wait to see the reader BradyGazelle’s response on this. This guy chimes in whenever there is a post about the Jags to write some rant. Lets see what he does.

  9. Maybe she was on a recruiting trip for Tom. His new hair style has me wondering.

  10. Bitches..
    You got to cut the ho loose Tom!
    Hell, your Tom Terrific you can get another hoochie in a minute.

  11. considering he left his pregnant gf to date giselle…..i think its safe to say karma’s a bitch

  12. LOL! Suck it Brady. Didn’t he knock up some chick and left her? What goes around comes around.
    All jokes aside, it might just be a kiss to the cheek, a hello hug, etc.

  13. Really Florio, people were complaining of this site becoming the TMZ of football but this is too much.
    comment #12 on the tmz site sums it up:
    This is obviously the most suggestive photo they were able to get out of the hundreds they were taking. If that’s all you got then obviously nothing scandalous happened. Do the dummies that read this site really believe this photo happened but the photo to catch the would-be kiss was missed? Shameless.

  14. That’s not a distraction, Matt Walsh was a distraction and a well timed one at that.
    So Tom Brady is potentially less well endowed than average, he shares that trait with about 50,000 other Patriot fans, that’s my best guess.

  15. in b4 fanboys! Let me be the first to say lmao… anyways. I feel bad for the guy. But Im not a fan of his in the least, and being a Jet fan, im glad another AFC East team now has a distraction. Anyhow… Sucks for Tom.

  16. My chick would leave me in a heartbeat for TB. Like I could blame her, he has a lot more going for him then me. I’d probably ask her to send me a signed jersey to hang on my wall, there definitely wouldn’t be much animosity. Its basically a no brainer..
    BUT – If a chick will cheat on Tom Brady, all hope is lost.. He’s one pretty dude..

  17. That’s one grubby-looking mofo. He’s got that pale, sickly, Kid-Rock-ish profile going – yikes!

  18. Distraction, Dis-Maction.
    I love having a HOTT girlfriend that flirts and other Men want.
    If she did not sleep with him then Awesome!
    She must have come home to him and Rocked his world!
    Possibly they even talked about it, oh my, to spike up their sex life.
    To assume it is an issue is top project your micro culture on them.
    Lets see what they say about it before we proclaim it an issue, i.e. the “issue” may have equaled Crazy, Hott Sex at home,v Tom’s mind is clear from relief and plays out of his mind this weekend.
    Sounds perfect to me.

  19. This is a total joke! Notice they didn’t post the money shot? That’s because there isn’t one! Look at her body posture; she was stopped by this clown and he was probably greeting her the European way, with a kiss on the cheek.
    My vote? He was dispatched by the Miami Dolphins!

  20. Gisele, better hide his golf clubs it is getting close to Thanksgiving and time for another family get together.

  21. Who cares, if his is like 98% of all the other marriages in this country, he probably has his own kissy missy as well.

  22. Wow this is pretty dumb. They may or may not have kissed on the lips. I feel like I’m back in 3rd grade.

  23. thanks for the story. now i know what to put on my poster boards for the game monday night. maybe the fins should put it up on the jumbotron.
    geez. she’s cheating on tom brady with a guy in jeans and kicks

    …dude, after reading all of your post I’d have to say that your wife has more to worry about YOU leaving HER for TB… GET OF HIS DICK!… unless that’s your thing.

  25. I am confused here, you guys are ripping Mike Florio because this supposedly isn’t football related? How isn’t it? This has a chance of affecting the way Brady plays on the field, which therefore means it is football related. Wouldn’t it affect you at work or on the field if there was pictures floating around of your wife with another man? Stop being so critical and trying to prove someone wrong when you’re the one who is wrong.

  26. Non-story. I’m not going to complain that Florio ran it, but it’s still a non-story.
    What’s clear is there were probably thousands of snapshots going off right at this time, as they’re obviously not in a private place. Which means they were aware of the attention. And they’re obviously caught in what could be just a conversation.
    Further, if there were photos being taken, what happened to the next 5 seconds after? They made out and the photog said “eh, who needs that?”

    Not like that…
    Brady got cheated on, plain and simple. How were the sloppy seconds, Tommy boy?

  29. As much as I would love to believe this, it’s nothing and a pretty lame attempt at stirring up shite.

    If anyone would know a lot about other guys junk, it would be Jimmysmith, or Stiller43 but he is more just about Ben’s junk.

  31. if they were actually about to make out, don’t you think there would have been some more graphic pictures ?

  32. The only conclusion you can draw is that they don’t have anything more incriminating. Brady knows this stuff comes w/the territory. Doubt he thinks about it if he even sees it. And he got to his level as a QB by tuning out off-field distractions.
    Anyway, boat-shoe guy is no competition. All the guests–with or without masks–looked like hallucinations someone might have after drinking kerosene. Yech.

  33. If you look closely, you can see she’s wearing a DTF button. I’d suspect Big Ben, but the dude’s mullet isn’t long enough.

  34. I think he is more worried if Jimmy Shits is going to call him a scum bag.
    Tom Brady doesnt care about this stuff, he can get on any train he wants…

  35. The idiot brigade seems to be out in full force this afternoon.
    Yes. Please do monitor and update on this situation because it is no small deal and certainly can contribute to Tom being distracted.

  36. ….OK…OK… all of you guys saying this is “nothing”… two questions… 1st… what if it were YOUR wife, now is it something… 2nd… Would your wife think it were “nothing” if you were caught on film about to examine another woman’s throat with your tongue?

  37. Not sure why anyone would want to go to something like this. Looks like typical Paris idiocy. Anyway, I’m not sure what all the buzz is about. Obviously they caught Giselle listening to this toolbox whispering something into her ear; if they had made out we’d be seeing a picture of that.
    Still, Brady, its time to end this shit man. I get the allure of banging a supermodel, but if she is going to tell you to have that haircut, dress like a douchebag and go around taking pictures that are going to cause you this type of aggravation, its time to either put her on time-out or cut bait. This chick has made you soft, Tom.
    If this thing moves the needle one way or the other for Brady, it better result in a pissed off Brady throwing for 400 yards and 3 scores Monday night.

    I know for a fact that your Mommy doesn’t agree with that assumption. One of those 50,000 is your Daddy. Too bad you don’t know who.

  39. I read this on another site so I won’t take credit.
    Personal Foul! Fifteen yards for roughing the marriage.

  40. Really? Did you see the guy?
    You think Brady is worried about his smokin hot supermodel wife cheating on him with that pudgy double-chinned greasy-looking loser with a ribon wrapped around his head?
    C’mon. I think even Florio would have a better shot than that goober.

    Funny, you and all your Pats buddies didn’t mind slobbering all over the Ben story… which was given birth by, oh let’s see — TMZ!
    Now you all want to play the “shame on you for gossiping” angle.
    What is it about Pats fans and hypocrisy?

  42. No big deal, I kiss Giselle like that all the time, we are old friends……wink wink…..and I mean OLD friends!!!

  43. Interesting picture. I don’t know what to think. It’s definitely not a “european cheek” kiss as so many are claiming. They use the cheek for that not a tilted head towards lips.
    He could be a gay friend and they are actually kissing on the lips but her face is so serious.
    Anyway, if it’s “something other” news will start leaking out eventually. I hope it’s nothing because the only one who will really suffer is their child, and Tom already has a child who has to live with the consequences of a “broken home”.

    Nice
    ————————————————
    First off. Come up with an original line.
    Second. Don’t do that.
    Thirdly. Don’t do that to a lady.
    1/100Th of a second snap, from a 15 second moment of a double kiss on the cheek, from a scumbag paparazzi, who probably caused the death of Lady Di.
    This brings out all of the losers who post here. People like “Professor.”
    I would be really embarrassed if I did not look at that photo and automatically see it for what it is.
    Florio gets a pass. Actually a slap on the back, for he accomplished what he wanted. Which was to bring the intelligence of a retarded field mouse out of people like “Professor.” and get more web page hits.
    That is my take. And I am a Raider Fan. A victim of “The Tuck Rule.” and Tom Brady.

  45. Maybe Gisele needs a little something, something and Mr. Brady was unavailable or otherwise pre-occupied with you know……. a team you might have heard of…….the New England Patriots.
    Yeah, Florio follow this closely. Keep us posted. Hell, if Vince Young, Micheal Vick and Joe Smo can have all their private/personal business smattered across the blogosphere why is Tom Brady off limits?

  46. Oh Oh…This is trouble for rest of NFL…NE hasn’t won since Giselle came on the scene.
    If she’s gone..they start winning everything again.
    Like Brady’d have any problem getting ANY woman he wants…married or single.

  47. These sycophantic model-type people are always kissing each other. Anyone that sees a still-frame photograph (yes I know that’s a redundancy) is a moron if they think they can draw any conclusions regarding the nature of the kiss.

  48. honestly, i don’t think they’d have kissed in front of cameras if this was something Brady had to worry about. if its a long time friend, its a long time friend. none of us know if they ended up in bed together after this, so whatever. Brady and the Pats are losing Monday Night anyway…

  49. Gisele must not be a fan of Tom “Beiber” Brady’s new douchey hair cut.
    Poor guy…he’s married and now has to taste another man’s weiner.

  50. “Guys, the photos of the Vogue party show Gisele with a longtime friend, the angle in the photo is causing malicious comments.”
    ———————————————————
    You’ll just have to forgive us. We’re all fat, lazy losers tracking a football blog. This is about the best we get. Trouble in Tom Terrific’s world? Lets hear it!
    Its not like any muck can bring a multi-millionaire with three Super Bowl rings and a super model wife down. Even if she did get busted and they divorced Tom would find an even hotter chick…

    So, Jimmy…you were that guy with the roving eye at the men’s urinals at Gilette. My God, man! How long did you stay there to get your survey sampling up to 50,000?

  52. So she’s hot, rich, and skanky? Two out of three ain’t bad. Especially if the two are hot and rich. And I’m guessing Brady can pick up some elite strange by simply nodding his head. Manageable problem.

  53. That’s right Florio, just lay it out there for the rabble. How do you philosophize about God one day bring up this garbage the next. Tell me, what won’t you do for hits?

  54. Doesn’t Brady knock women up and move on? Gisele is getting a head start before she is ditched…

  55. I’m shocked at the number of people complaining that Florio ran this.
    Players’ personal lives have been fair game here for years.
    Also, Florio has covered several TMZ stories before. Where was all of the outrage then? Do we save our outrage about this kind of tabloid stuff until it hits home?

    See my comment earlier today.
    The “outrage” is from Pats fans, the same guys who drooled all over the TMZ-generated Ben scandal. Then it was cold hard news!
    Now? Oh how DARE you go all gossipy on us! Now that it’s our boy we’re talking about.
    Like I said, hypocrisy, the same kind that drives “ampats” to claim he is “outraged” by Ben’s behavior because he has a daughter — then tells us to “hold the laughs” when it’s his hero Lawrence Taylor who gets busted. Double standards. Oh what fun!

  57. Giselle isn’t the stay at home type. Guys married to beautiful women have to deal with this all the time. What’s the answer? I have no idea.
    GO STEELERS!

  58. Slight correction to make. The original sentence in your story ran…
    “The folks at TMZ.com claim to have a photo of Gisele Bundchen, the wife of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, getting cozy with a man who definitely isn’t Tom Brady. ”
    It should have said
    “The folks at TMZ.com claim to have a photo of Gisele Bundchen, the wife of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, getting cozy with Tom Brady who definitely isn’t a man . ”
    You need a better editor!

  59. Love all the sympathy for baby momma #1 here from people who don’t know better but it doesn’t stop them from running their mouths. FACT is that Bridget was LIVING WITH another guy and Brady was single when Bridget dumped her LIVE IN boyfriend for Brady. She met Brady because her live in boyfriend was a Pats fan and she wanted to arrange to do something Pats related for him for his birthday. Little did he know that she would choose to DO a Patriot instead. Truth is that no one KNOWS and it’s highly UNLIKELY due to the timing of BM’s pregnancy and his starting to date Gisele that he left her for Gisele when she conveniently managed to get pregnant after 3 years of not getting pregnant, while publicly declaring her want of a family and marriage while he said publicly he wasn’t ready.Who got the karma?

  60. What’s is that on that guy’s face, fungus ?
    Sure, makes perfect sense. Gisele is going to get all hot up in this scraggly goof’s grill at a public gala. She probably figured nobody would notice, her and Tom being so little well known and all.

  61. So because someone is a long time friend it means you cant be hooking up with them? I got a couple of long time friends that I do more then that with.
    But who cares really even if she did kiss him doesnt mean anything inappropriate was happening. You know how all those people act they kiss when they say hello no big deal.

  62. Confess Florio. You and every other loser on this website want to be Tom Brady. A Quarterback with 3 Super Bowl rings married to the RICHEST super model in the world. Knocked up a starlet. What’s not to like?

    =====================================
    Word. The only thing Tom hasn’t done that we’d all want to do is have an NFL rule named after him. Oh, wait…

  64. The most amazing thing to me is why ANY women would want to get within ten feet of this guy — he looks like a fat bum!

  65. Dolphins should play some songs before the start of the game…
    If you wanna be happy for the rest of your life….
    Never make a pretty woman your wife.

  67. Just saw this story for the first time today. I am not surprised that someone from West Virginia does not understand Latin culture. Of course, those of us from the Northeast do not understand the familial relationships of West Virginians.
