It’s been a rough go for Tom Brady in 2022.
His “unretirement” and return for a 23rd season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers ultimately resulted in a divorce with his long time wife Gisele Bundchen, and not to mention, the Buccaneers are incredibly mid this season, and Brady hasn’t quite played up to his standards.
And to make matters worse, his donations to his own charity, the TB12 Foundation, are now being called into questioni.
Brady, who has made a whopping $350 million plus in his extensive NFL career, has allegedly only donated $200,000 of that to his charity. And here’s the kicker… the foundation has paid Brady’s FOR-PROFIT company TB12 more than $1.6 million. It’s the only company listed as an “independent contractor,” according to The Daily Beast.
Needless to say, it’s never a good look when you’re making money off your own charity, more than what you’ve put into it. And that’s not to say that Tom hasn’t been involved in plenty of other charity initiatives, because he has, but it is just a bad look… a really bad look.
And on top of that, he and Gisele have currently been named in a $11 billion lawsuit regarding the fraudulent crypto firm FTX, which just lost billions and billions of dollars.
Brady and Gisele have supported and promoted FTX for quite some time, which is why they are apart of the lawsuit.
And on top of that, Gisele is reportedly dating jiu-jitsu instructor Joaquim Valente.
I mean my God, the winningest, and statistically best quarterback in NFL history is finding himself on the short end of the stick for the first time in his career. When he loses, he loses BAD.
I mean c’mon, though… who could trust a guy that looks like this?
