LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Gisele Bundchen’s most talked rumored relationship with charming jiu-jitsu instructor may be nothing but a warm friendship claims her close pals. The supermodel, who had just walked out of a long-standing marriage with NFL star Tom Brady, as she announced her divorce a couple of weeks ago. On Saturday, November 12 she was spotted having dinner with Brazilian jiu-jitsu instructor Joaquim Valente in Koji, Provincia de Puntarenas of Costa Rica along with her two kids, Benjamin, 12, and Vivian, 9.

Bundchen's close friends shunned such rumors, “He's been her kids jiu-jitsu teacher for years. There's no truth to the rumors that they're dating.” Gisele and Joaquim have been previously involved in a photoshoot, which was shot for Dust Magazine. The other participants were Joaquim’s brothers, Pedro and Giu Valente. The siblings together own Valente Brothers Self Defence Gym in Miami, and teach skills on the submission and grappling-based martial art of Brazilian jiu-jitsu, reports the Daily Mail.

The 42-year-old supermodel in February had also shared a video of herself testing her skills with Joaquim and his brothers at their gym. She even managed to put Joaquim in a rear-naked choke. The mother-of-three had captioned the post, “I believe the more tools we have in our toolbox the better. I feel stronger, more confidence and empowered since I started practicing self-defense. I feel it’s an important skill for all, but specially for us women. Thank you @ValenteBrothers for being awesome teachers and for making training so much fun. I am looking forward to keep improving. Let’s go! [fist emoji].”

Interestingly, Tom Brady, her then-husband jokingly commented, “My days of leaving dishes in the sink are numbered.” The couple called off their 13 years marriage last month on October 28. Tom Brady wrote, “In recent days, my wife and I finalized our divorce from one another after 13 years of marriage. We arrived at this decision amicably and with gratitude for the time we spent together. We are blessed with beautiful and wonderful children who will continue to be the center of our world in every way.” He continued, “However, we wish only the best for each other as we pursue whatever new chapters in our lives that are yet to be written.”

On the other side, Gisele shared her heartbreaking message, “My priority has always been and will continue to be our children whom I love with all my heart. We will continue co-parenting to give them the love, care, and attention they greatly deserve. The decision to end a marriage is never easy, but we have grown apart. It is, of course, difficult to go through something like this."

An "ironclad prenup" allowed the couple to settle their divorce rather quickly, where the two are said to have a net worth of $733 million in total, as per a report by PageSix.
