Tom Brady’s Father Condemns Engagement Untruths


Tom Brady did not propose to Gisele Bündchen on a flight from Teterboro to Boston, the NFL star’s father told the Boston Globe, responding to detailed rumors that Brady had proposed on a private jet “bursting with white roses and champagne,” per the Daily News, on New Year’s Eve. “We don’t know a thing about it,” Tom’s dad said. “We talked to him and there’s nothing to say. It’s rumor, rumor, rumor. Must be a slow news day.” It would have been cool if he’d added, “Roses? That shit is gay and that only happens in the movies,” but he didn’t. Anyway: Assuming the old man’s not a crafty liar, this must be kind of awkward for Gisele, right? [Boston Globe]
