An alleged tweet from NFL star Zach Wilson in relation to Gisele Bündchen went viral on social media recently. We determine its legitimacy and if it’s real or fake.

According to multiple reports, Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen have each hired divorce attorneys and are “exploring their options” regarding their marriage.

Page Six was the first to report the news. The site also noted that the couple, who have been married since 2009, have been living separately for the past couple of months.

Brady is a seven-time Super Bowl champion quarterback who currently plays for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. In February he announced his retirement, only to later reverse the decision 40 days later.

According to PEOPLE, Bündchen, a fashion model, did not like how Brady handled his return to the Buccaneers. In August, Brady left Bucs training camp for 11 days to “deal with personal things,” according to his head coach Todd Bowles.

Debunked: Zach Wilson Gisele Bündchen tweet goes viral

In the aftermath of the news, an alleged tweet from New York Jets QB Zach Wilson about Gisele Bündchen went viral.

According to one Twitter account, Wilson allegedly commented, ‘Don’t worry, Gisele. I got you.’

The tweet appears to be in reference to Wilson’s alleged romance with one of his mom’s closest friends, which made headlines in July 2022.

The Zach Wilson Gisele Bündchen tweet currently has close to 44k likes. The post was widely propagated across social media and fans wondered if it was real.

However, the tweet is fake and was originally by New York Porch Sports. According to their Twitter bio, New York Porch Sports is a ‘Satire and parody of the New York media’ and they often post content in keeping with that tone.

The alleged Zach Wilson tweet is therefore not real.

Antonio Brown criticized for Gisele tweet

One NFL star who did post a legitimate tweet about Gisele Bündchen is wide receiver and former teammate of Brady, Antonio Brown.

As reported by TMZ, Brown appeared to troll Brady recently by posting an old picture of him hugging Bündchen after winning Super Bowl LV with TB12 and the Bucs.

A number of people criticized Brown for the post, including NFL legend and current Undisputed host Shannon Sharpe.

Sharpe tweeted it was ‘an all time low for an all time low joker.’
