Former NFL star receiver Antonio Brown has never shied away from controversy, even when it involves his previous teammates like Tom Brady. Brady embraced Brown during their brief time together on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Brady even recruited Brown to the Bucs and offered for the prolific pass-catcher to stay at his home.

Since then, Brown has spread rumors on social media insinuating there was more to his relationship with Brady’s now ex-wife, supermodel Gisele Bündchen. Brown first made suggestive comments years ago but has never retracted his statements about Gisele. Recently, he spoke more on the subject during an appearance on the podcast “It Is What It Is,” covering several topics related to Brady, Gisele, and their relationships.

What Exactly Did Antonio Brown Say About Gisele Bündchen?

Brown did not hold back when asked about his past remarks regarding Tom Brady’s supermodel ex-wife, Gisele.

“She was just looking into my eyes, you know. A woman opposed to being in your face…So to me, I’m like, you holding my two hands and you in my eyes,” Brown stated.

Many observers felt Brown crossed a line when he previously posted pictures with Brady and Bündchen together. Fans questioned why Brown would attack his former teammate and friend Brady so bluntly.

The most well-known photo of Brown and Bündchen shows them celebrating joyfully together after the Buccaneers’ Super Bowl victory. Hugging and celebrating were common for all of the Bucs players and their families in that triumphant moment.

How Did Antonio Brown Describe His Relationship With Tom Brady?

Even as Brown perpetuated the notion of a romantic connection between himself and super star Bündchen, he said the interactions with her at the Super Bowl that started the rumors made him feel awkward about their bond and his relationship with Brady.

“Yeah. So I was with my people, my family that they watch. And so I think she was just in a moment. But it’s like, in that situation, it did look bad because we just won, and that’s the moment you need to be with your family, right? You know, I mean, so mom’s is like, ‘Oh, I’m feeling awkward,'” Brown remarked.

Brown has faced several highly-publicized off-the-field troubles since his time in Tampa Bay. He infamously removed his shirt and walked off the field mid-game during his final NFL contest. Brown also got in hot water for exposing himself to a woman in a hotel swimming pool.

Recently, Brown referenced potential CTE issues resulting from his football career as a reason behind some of his erratic behavior.
