New England Patriots star Julian Edelman hardly makes the news when it comes to who he’s dating. However, it looks like his personal life is getting a little complicated these days, which is one of the many the reasons why he has been making headlines.
It looks like Julian Edelman is dating Victoria’s Secret supermodel Adriana Lima. The hot new pair have been dating for the past month, according to a recent report via the New York Post. Sources told TMZ that Edelman, 30, and Lima, 35, first met each other in Miami and have been going out on dates ever since.
Although the two have not confirmed their relationship, they were last seen holding hands in Nantucket in July. During their outing, Adriana was photographed in a black halter top with a matching choker and denim cutoff shorts. Meanwhile, Julian kept it simple with a white T-shirt paired with a chambray shirt and gray shorts. Adriana’s good friend Gisele Bundchen may have inspired her to go out and get her own athlete. The retired Brazilian supermodel, who just walked during the Opening Ceremony of the Rio Olympics, is married to Tom Brady.
Lima has been off the market for a while now. A source told People that she is no longer dating Joe Thomas.
“Adriana is single and happy. She is really focused on work and her kids right now, but she’s open to a relationship in the future.”
She was last seen with her former boyfriend when they hit the red carpet together as a couple for the amfAR Gala at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival back in May. Lima and Thomas, a boxing trainer from Miami, have been dating as early as January 2015, according to his Instagram post, which has since been removed. In addition, Lima has deleted all photos of him from her own account.
A source told Entertainment Tonight that the breakup wasn’t amicable. Apparently, their split didn’t come as a surprise to some people.
“They’ve been having some problems recently,” the source added.
Lima was previously married to professional basketball player Marko Jaric from 2009 to 2014. The couple share two children, Valentina, 6, and Sienna, 3. According to the Daily Mail, Lima was previously engaged to musician Lenny Kravitz in 2002 and was linked to Justin Bieber, but she denied that anything happened between them.
As for Julian, his love life is a little more complicated. According to reports, he’s currently facing a paternity suit by a Swedish model who says that the wide receiver is the father of her unborn baby. The model, who goes by the name Ella Rose, filed the lawsuit in L.A. County Superior Court back in July. According to TMZ, the two have had a casual relationship for the past two years, but their relationship was never made official between them.
Edelman’s agent, Don Yee, who is also a representative for Tom Brady, declined to comment to TMZ about this personal life. Sources revealed that Ella Rose is five-and-a-half months pregnant that her baby girl is due in October. Although she lives in Los Angeles, she intends to have the baby in Massachusetts. The news of this suits comes after Edelman was just spotted getting cozy with Lima.
Ella is confident that Julian is the father of her child. Julian reportedly contested the paternity initially, but he now acknowledges that the baby is his, reports the Boston Globe. There has been a lot of talk about Julian’s dating life on the talk-sports.net forums as of Wednesday, August 10. Fans are hopeful that he will step up and become a father to his child if the child is, in fact, his. They also believe that he’s a perfect match for Adriana.
