After his divorce from Gisele Bündchen earlier this year, Tom Brady entered into a romantic relationship with supermodel Irina Shayk. However, sources say that the relationship has now ended just as quickly as it began. Brady was reportedly dating Shayk as a way to make Bündchen jealous. But it seems his plan has backfired.
Brady and Bündchen announced their divorce in October 2022 after 13 years of marriage. The couple has two children together.
According to sources close to the former couple, Brady was hoping to make Bündchen regret their split by dating the high-profile Shayk. “It was 100 percent Brady’s idea to date Irina and use her to get under Gisele’s skin,” said an insider. “He wanted to show Gisele that he was fine without her.”
Shayk apparently believed Brady genuinely cared for her when they first got together. “At first, Irina was really into Tom and thought he wanted to be with her for real,” the source said. “But it quickly became clear that he was just using her.”
As it dawned on Shayk that Brady was only dating her to make his ex jealous, she became angry and hurt.
Shayk decided to take control and end things with Brady rather than be used by him.
“She dumped him last week,” the insider revealed. “She told him she refused to be part of his petty revenge plot against Gisele.” Brady did not take being broken up with well. He “lashed out” at Shayk and said some very hurtful things, the source said. Shayk was extremely upset but knew she had made the right decision.
Tom Brady’s post-divorce rebound relationship crashed and burned within months, as Irina Shayk realized Brady was only dating her to spite Gisele Bündchen. This latest romantic fail just adds fuel to rumors that Brady is struggling to cope with the dissolution of his marriage. One thing is clear – using other people will not help Brady get over losing Bündchen.
