2023 looks like it’s going to be a totally different year for Tom Brady, as not only will he more than likely be continuing his NFL career after months of uncertainty, but he could very well be doing it with a new woman by his side!
Who Is Tom Brady’s Rumored New Girlfriend?
According to reports, the 45-year-old Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback is moving on from 42-year-old Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bündchen – who he was married to for 13 years – and is now dating 26-year-old Slovakian beauty and FashionNova ambassador Veronika Rajek.
Neither Brady nor Rajek have responded to the dating rumors at the time of writing, although Rajek hasn’t been shy about praising the seven-time Super Bowl champ on Instagram. She currently has 3.4M followers, so that’s a *lot* of people who know how she feels about him!
On December 6th, Veronika shared a carousel of images of herself watching Brady in action at Raymond James Stadium during the Buccaneers’ 17-16 victory over the New Orleans Saints while wearing a number 12 Tampa Bay Buccaneers jersey with Brady’s name on the back.
She captioned her post: “I saw the LEGEND,” followed by the football emoji. “And if somebody asks me again if I love Brady, yes I love him, and show me somebody who doesn’t. Even his haters love him because they know he is the [goat emoji’ [football emoji] [red heart on fire emoji. She finished off by writing: “@tombrady thank you for an amazing show.”
Despite Veronika’s very public display of adoration for Brady, her reps have denied – or more accurately, refused to comment on – the rumors about her and the football star dating. Her rep reportedly told Newsweek that she “will not comment on the matter” at this time, adding: “The only message Veronika Rajek wants to put out there, as very supportive as Veronika Rajek is, is for Tom Brady to be focused on the game and get things on track to get his 8th ring.”
What Do Tom Brady’s Fans Think?
As expected, the NFL star’s fans were somewhat divided. Some fans thought that it was great that he was moving on and had the support of such a stunning woman, with one writing, “I’d like to congratulate Tom Brady for finding a new girlfriend after his tragic divorce,” and another saying she is “Way hotter than Gisele,” followed by a hand clapping emoji and four hand praising emojis. However, many, many others weren’t impressed, with one Instagram user saying Veronika’s post seemed “desperate” and another thinking it was “tasteless.” Ouch!
“Tell me you’re applying for that new wifey role without telling me you’re applying for that new wifey role,” quipped one user. “I think it is so tasteless on your part, it’s not like this post is coming off as a sports fan. Appears to me you’re throwing yourself at a newly single famous man. Hope I am incorrect,” added another. “She’s trying hard,” commented another, followed by two crying laughing emojis. “The man is almost twice your age. With 3 children. He isn’t gonna go for you just cuz you are a model. He was married to Gisele. Beautiful, smart talented and RICH Gisele. Your net worth does not qualify you for this guy. Aim a little lower lady,” wrote another. “Just digging for gold,” alleged another. “What a classless attempt to gain media coverage and a pro football players attention. This makes you look severely desperate and it’s embarrassing,” said another.
