The Brazilian supermodel was seen having dinner with a new guy on Saturday, November 12.
According to Page Six, “The duo grabbed a bite to eat at Koji in Provincia de Puntarenas with the 42-year-old model’s two children, Benjamin, 12, and Vivian, 9, and Valente’s co-trainer Jordan.”
“Bündchen showed her stomach in a cropped top and flowing black pants on the dinner date. The Valente Brothers co-creator, for his part, was all smiles in a gray shirt and shorts.”
Last week, a Brazilian gossip site reported that the fashion model and the jiu-jitsu instructor are dating, and they are very much a couple now. However, a source revealed to Page Six that the dating rumors are false.
“Joaquim and his two brothers have instructed Gisele and the children in martial arts for the past year and a half, and their relationship is strictly platonic and professional.”
According to a second source, “Jordan and Joaquim travel with the family when they’re out of town because the kids are homeschooled.”
Last year Bundchen posed alongside the Miami-based instructor and his brothers for a cover shoot for Dust Magazine, and few sources claim that this is how the duo initially met.
Earlier this year, in February, the model and businesswoman started learning jiu-jitsu called Valente and his brothers ‘awesome teachers’ on her Instagram.
“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 especially for us women,” she wrote.
“Thank you @ValenteBrothers for … making training so much fun. I am looking forward to keep improving. Let’s go!”
Gisele’s dating rumors with her instructor came shortly after her divorce from NFL player Tom Brady.
In October, Bündchen hired a divorce lawyer after months of ‘tension’ between her and Brady.
“Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen seem to be heading for the end zone: Both have retained divorce lawyers,” Page Six reported.
“As previously revealed, the couple has been living separately for the past couple of months following an epic fight — and they’re now apparently looking at dividing up their multimillion-dollar empire.”
According to a source, this was the ‘end of their relationship,’ and there would be no ‘going back.’
“I never actually thought this argument would be the end of them, but it looks like it is. I don’t think there will be any coming back now. They both have lawyers and are looking at what a split will entail, who gets what and what the finances will be.”
The couple tied the knot in February 2009 and share two children together – 12-year-old son Benjamin Rein and 9-year-old daughter Vivian Lake.
PEOPLE reported that the fashion model was unhappy with Brady’s return to the Buccaneers.
“She was so happy when he announced his retirement, and she wasn’t thrilled at all when he went back on that.”
A few weeks after the divorce news started circulating on social media, the couple posted separate stories on their Instagram accounts and announced their split.
“We arrived at this decision amicably and with gratitude for the time spent together,” Brady wrote. “We will continue to work together as parents.”
Meanwhile, Bündchen, 42, wrote on her Instagram story that it wasn’t easy to make that decision, and she will keep her kids a priority.
“My priority has always been and will continue to be our children, whom I love with all my heart.
“We have grown apart, and while it is, of course, difficult to go through something like this, I feel blessed for the time we had together and only wish the best for Tom always.”
