Gisele Bündchen Took Costa Rican Vacation With Her Jiu-Jitsu Instructor While Tom Brady Was In Germany

Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady split in one of the highest-profile divorces in recent memory, and the separation has seemed to have a good impact on both of the two.

While Tom and his Bucs is 2-0 since the divorce, Gisele is apparently exploring options as she is already taking Caribbean vacation with a new man, her Jiu-Jitsu instructor to be exact, while Brady was over in Munich playing the first NFL game on German soil.


The guy is Joaquim Valente, a jiu-jitsu instructor who lives in Miami. Gisele has known him for at least a year and a half. She took lessons from him, and then signed her 2 kids up for lessons as well.

Gisele and Joaquim were out to dinner in Costa Rica Saturday, with her kids, Benjamin and Vivian. It’s especially interesting, because Tom and Gisele made Costa Rica their vacation spot during the off-season.

Gisele and Joaquim did a super sexy photoshoot together more than a year ago for Dust Magazine … presumably about the art of jiu-jitsu.

Gisele has posted her fondness for Joaquim’s MMA teaching skills, saying it gave her confidence and empowerment.

A source connected to Gisele tells TMZ GB and JV are not dating, noting his brother also came along for the Costa Rican trip.

A source close to Tom is not buying it, asking why this Miami guy is in Costa Rica with her. The source added, “It always seemed weird she just one day abruptly ended the marriage.”
