Suspected arson near Gisele Bundchen's new Miami home raises safety concerns for supermodel and her children
MIAMI, FLORIDA: Investigations are underway for a suspected case of arson at a Miami residence in the Surfside neighborhood, very close to the cottage that supermodel Gisele Bundchen purchased recently. This comes days after her divorce from her now ex-husband Tom Brady and her expected move to the new neighborhood.
The home near Bundchen’s new cottage burst into flames on Sunday, October 30. It is only one block away from her new home. According to the Daily Mail, authorities have determined that the fire was sparked through foul play and have taken a person into custody. A full-on arson investigation is now underway.
As soon as the Fire Department showed up, the fire was swiftly quelled. However, details about the unidentified suspect and motive for causing the fire are yet to be revealed. This fire has now increased worries for the safety of Bundchen and her children, who will be moving into the Surfside neighborhood soon. NFL Hall-of-famer. Brady and Bundchen have two children- Benjamin and Vivian. Bundchen is also stepmother to Brady’s oldest child John, by his ex-girlfriend Bridget Moynahan.
Bundchen had quietly bought the house in secret in the weeks before the announcement of Brady deciding to 'un-retire'. The house is very close to Miami Beach and the purchase was supposedly approved on June 10. It is also rumored that the former Victoria’s Secret model’s name is the only name on the purchase deed for the house.
Bundchen’s newly purchased luxury Miami cottage is only a short walk away from Indian Creek Island, the location of Brady and Bundchen’s $17 million mansion. This home was undergoing a major renovation in the weeks before Brady and Bundchen’s divorce was announced.
The newly-purchased home is said to be built for a family with 2 kids by the previous owners — it is expected to be remodeled to suit Bundchen and her two children. However, it is also noteworthy that while this may be a solo purchase by Gisele, she and Brady do own a lot of property together. Their list of homes includes a condo in New York City and a $17 million mansion in Indian Creek Island. They also own an extravagant property in Yellowstone, Montana worth $5.7 million and another home in Costa Rica. It is unclear as to whether the Miami home will be a permanent residence for Bundchen and the children or if she will move back to New York City and use the Miami mansion as a place to stay for when she visits Florida.
