Gisele Bündchen Dating Tom Brady’s Longtime Friend?! Awkward…

Gisele Bündchen has a new man in her life — and he’s an old friend of her ex-husband!!

According to a new report published on Thursday, the 42-year-old supermodel is pursuing a romantic relationship with a billionaire business developer and hotel magnate. Of course, just last year, Gisele went through a quickie divorce from former NFL star Tom Brady. And more recently, she was linked to jiu jitsu instructor Joaquim Valente. But now, she’s apparently moving on to a man with VERY deep pockets!

This report comes from, which claims the Brazilian-born bombshell is now dating 55-year-old developer Jeffrey Soffer. The billionaire is a hotelier who owns “a host of luxury properties,” such as the iconic Fontainebleau Hotel down in Miami. He was also notably married to supermodel-turned-actress Elle Macpherson for four years before that duo divorced back in 2017.

Now, with Tom figuring out his post-football life, Gisele has clearly made her next (bold) move to step out with Soffer! A source told the outlet the duo has been trying to lay low with their relationship up to this point. In fact, they are allegedly going so far as to “meet secretly” on a weekly basis as they try to spark a love connection:

“Gisele has been spending time with Jeffrey Soffer. They’ve been seeing each other for several months now and meet secretly about once a week.”


Soffer, as we mentioned, is loaded. The news org claims he’s worth “an estimated $2.2 billion” and boasts private jets, a super yacht, and “expansive properties” in his portfolio. So that’s nice!

But here’s the BIG key part of all this: Soffer has been Brady’s close pal for a LONG time! Yes, really! That same insider claimed the billionaire and the ex-New England Patriots star “have been friends for years.”

Um… WHAT?!?!

Soffer and the ex-gridiron great have been spotted hanging publicly in recent months. They were hanging out with a third friend — David Beckham — down in Miami back in January. And early last spring, the billionaire and the quarterback took in an NBA game together while sitting court side with sports broadcaster Jim Gray.

Heck, back in 2020, Brady bought a Miami property RIGHT NEXT DOOR to Soffer while the 45-year-old football vet and his then-wife were looking to build their “forever” home. And when it came time to purchase the property, Gisele and Tom did it through a business LLC managed by — you guessed it — Soffer’s real estate development company. So there are a lot of close connections here!

Now, it’s not clear what this new report of Gisele and Jeffrey’s alleged romance might mean for Tom’s friendship with the business mogul.

But as for Brady and Bündchen, well, we can’t imagine this news is going to go over that smoothly! Ya know??
