Tom Brady, Donald Trump Relationship Soured Because of Tom’s Strict Diet

Tom Brady and Donald Trump were once good buddies.

The legendary former NFL Quarterback and Donald Trump became friends during Brady’s second NFL season in 2001.

But a new book claims Trump said their friendship soured because of Brady’s notoriously strict diet. Brady, who avoids inflammatory foods, previously said he distanced himself from Trump to stay out of politics.

According to Martin, Trump said their friendship began to sour after Brady married his wife Gisele Bundchen and began following a notoriously strict diet and lifestyle in 2005, Yahoo reported.

“The football star, Trump said, had not been the same after marrying Gisele Bündchen, who insisted on cooking him a painstakingly health-conscious diet,” Martin wrote.

Brady started shifting his eating habits in 2005 when he hired his longtime body coach Alex Guerrero.

Brady told Howard Stern on Sirius XM in April 2020 that he chose to distance himself from Trump when the former president launched his presidential campaign in 2015 and asked the former NFL star to speak on his behalf at the 2016 Republican National Convention.

“It was uncomfortable for me because you can’t undo things, not that I would undo a friendship, but political support is a lot different than the support of a friend,” Brady told Stern.

You know how Trump loves his McDonald’s,  this relationship was doomed to begin with.
