A look at all the men Tom Brady's ex-wife Gisele Bundchen has dated so far feat DiCaprio
After countless rumors and theories, Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen decided to confirm their divorce. Seen as the NFL's power couple, both Brady and Bundchen were together for over a decade. Of course, their decision left many fans unhappy and unable to believe the news.
Having said that, both Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen had an interesting dating history prior to their marriage. Though no relationship lasted long, fans were always curious about what happened behind the scenes.
Bundchen, 42, has been working since the 90s. Rising to the top in a few years, the model was in the limelight for her work and her personal life. While a few of Bundchen's relationships were widely known, many might not be aware of some people she has dated over the years.
A list of Gisele Bundchen's boyfriends before Tom Brady
1. João Paulo Diniz (1999)
Seventeen years her senior, Bundchen dated the late João Paulo Diniz in 1999. Bundchen's career was just getting started, and she had yet to establish herself as one of the world's highest-paid models. She did, however, receive the VH1 Vogue "Model of the Year" award the same year.
Considering they dated for a short while and kept their lives private, there aren't too many details available about their breakup.
A Brazilian businessman and son of billionaire Abilio Diniz, Joao Paulo, 58, passed away on July 31, 2022. Also an athlete, he suffered a massive heart attack after participating in a triathlon.
2. Scott Barnhill
Barnhill, who was 22 when Bundchen met him, was one of her shortest public relationships. Barnhill, who was also a model, worked on the same brand as Gisele.
They worked together as well, only to part ways later on.
Reports added that while they were together, their relationship was more or less turbulent.
3. Rico Mansur (2002)
A few years after Barnhill, Bundchen was dating Rico Mansur. A polo player, Bundchen dated him for around six months before parting ways.

Before Tom Brady, Bundchen was in a relationship with actor and environmentalist Leonardo DiCaprio. They dated on and off between 1999-2005, easily making them one of the most popular couples in Hollywood.
They made multiple public appearances together, eventually breaking up.
Bundchen spoke about the actor in her book, which she wrote and published while married to Tom Brady. Apparently, Bundchen was lonely when she was dating him and even suffered from panic attacks and other personal issues.
“Everyone who crosses our path is a teacher. They come into our lives to show us something about ourselves, and I think that’s what he was.”
Later, the supermodel realized she needed to move on and end their relationship.
Apart from that, Bundchen was also linked to Surfer Kelly Slater and actor Josh Hartnett. Briefly, the 42-year-old was also linked to Captain America actor Chris Evans. However, there was no confirmation from either side.
