After splitting with Tom Brady, Gisele Bündchen has been spotted in Costa Rica with her martial arts instructor, Joaquim Valente. Going to Costa Rica with a different man after the recent divorce from all-pro Tampa Bay Buccaneers Quarterback Tom Brady has led to speculation that Gisele is already dating again, however, Gisele has since come out after the rumors and speculation and said “None of it’s true,” Fox News Digital reports.
Sources for Gisele Bündchen have stated that there were a total of “6 adults and 8 kids on the trip.” While Gisele and her sources have stated that Bündchen and Valente are not dating, the two have been in photos together in the past.
Valente is one of three sons who own the Valente Brothers business in North Miami Beach. According to the business’ website, he “moved to Miami in 2007 to study criminology at Barry University. He quickly impressed everyone with his unique technique, outstanding teaching skills and remarkable charisma. Joaquim, like his brothers, had Grandmaster Hélio as his main teacher and trained weekly with the Grand Master. He was also very fortunate to spend many vacations and long weekends living with Grand Master Helio in his ranch. Joaquim played a pivotal role in the development of our curriculums as he was still living in Brazil and could work with Grandmaster Hélio directly.”
In February of last year, the 42-year-old posted a video of herself practicing Jiu Jitsu, thanking the brothers for their guidance. “I feel stronger, more confidence and empowered since I started practicing self-defense. I feel it’s an important skill for all, but specially for us women. Thank you @ValenteBrothers for being awesome teachers and for making training so much fun. I am looking forward to keep improving. Let’s go,” she wrote.
The friendship between Gisele Bündchen and her martial arts instructor, Joaquim Valente, appeared to many to be closer to a romantic relationship to many. While sources for Gisele Bündchen are denying the claims they are seeing each other, many have pointed to the timing of the vacation amid the recent divorce from Tom Brady.
Nothing appears to be solidified about the involvement between Gisele Bündchen and Joaquim Valente, however, that won’t stop social media users from speculating if the celebrities will eventually date if they are not already.
