Former White House Press Secretary, Anthony Scaramucci, hinted that New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady skipped a visit to the White House this year because his super model wife, Gisele Bundchen, is jealous of Ivanka Trump.
Scaramucci hosted “TMZ Live” on Monday, when the topic of Brady’s visit came up.
Known as “Mooch,” Scaramucci hinted to host Harvey Levin that Brady skipped the White House visit because of his wife.
After Tom Brady refused the invitation to visit the White House, some wondered if Brady’s friendship with the president had cooled, but Mooch told TMZ this isn’t so.
Instead, Mooch went on to hint that Brady’s wife, Gisele Bundchen, may have been the reason the Super Bowl champion took a pass on his invitation to visit the White House: “Somebody should ask Gisele why Tom Brady didn’t show up at the championship party. My guess is … there could be a little bit of jealousy there. I think she’s possessive of him and probably didn’t want him there.”
Mooch suggested that Brady and Ivanka may have once dated and that is why Bundchen is jealous.
“Maybe there was a relationship between him and Ivanka at some point,” Mooch said.
Back in 2004, Donald Trump did say that Brady and Ivanka would make a “great combination,” but it appears that the two never did date.
Indeed, a spokesman for the Trump family insisted, “While they have known each other for years, this is not true.”
For his part, the five-time Super Bowl champ said the reason he skipped the meeting was for “family issues.” He later said he was caring for his ailing mother who is suffering from cancer.
