Apparently, Tom Brady fighting a cold isn’t the only thing New England Patriots fans have to worry about. They also have to worry about Brady’s supermodel wife, Gisele Bundchen, showing up at the University of Phoenix Stadium to watch her husband play in Sunday’s Super Bowl. A source has told OK! Magazine that the Patriots quarterback is “desperate” to keep Gisele away because he thinks that she’ll be bad for his game.
According to the source, Tom doesn’t want to risk having his wife take his focus away from what he needs to do on the field. The source said that Tom “knows there’s way too much on his mind to let Gisele become a distraction,” so he has suggested to her that she and the kids watch the game on TV from a remote location.
The source added that Tom Brady doesn’t want to risk a repeat of what happened in 2012, when Gisele was caught on camera dissing his teammates after the Patriots lost to the New York Giants. With the Deflategate scandal, in which it was alleged that the Patriots deflated footballs during the Jan. 18 AFC Championship Game, still fresh on everyone’s minds, Brady doesn’t want another controversy. As reported by the Inquisitr, Tom has denied that he cheated.
“Tom knows all of Boston, not to mention that his teammates, were stunned by Gisele’s poor sportsmanship after the Super Bowl slipped away from them.”
In 2012, while on her way to meet Tom in the Patriots locker room after his Super Bowl loss, Gisele was filmed basically saying that Tom’s teammates didn’t do their ob.
“You have to catch the ball when you’re supposed to catch the ball. My husband cannot f**king throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time. I can’t believe they dropped the ball so many times.”
It seems that Gisele Bundchen’s outspoken attitude has also gotten her into trouble with the other wives. OK! Magazine‘s source also said that Gisele wouldn’t be welcome in the stadium by the other families because she “doesn’t get along with most of the other women.”
Tom may not have to force Gisele to stay home, since a virus may do that for him. During the Super Bowl XLIX media event Wednesday morning, Tom admitted that he has had a cold for four or five days, a cold that has also affected his children and his wife, who is “pretty sick right now.”
Yet Tom Brady fighting a cold shouldn’t alarm anyone, according to the quarterback himself. He said that he’ll “be good.”
“I’ll be 100 percent. I’m not worried about it at all.”
