Tom Brady is known as a Super Bowl champion, a legendary quarterback and part of ‘Deflate-Gate.’ But, after his emails reportedly show him freaking out over pool covers and fussing over clothes, the New England Patriots star might now be considered a diva!
Tom Brady, 38, has been having a rough time. The New England Patriots quarterback still has to serve his 4-game suspension for his role in “Deflate-Gate,” and now, his emails paint him to be somewhat of a diva! Messages connected to the cheating scandal reveal Tom losing it over pool covers and making demands for high-end clothing!
Tom’s emails surfaced in a 457-page document submitted to a federal court on Aug. 4, reports the Daily Mail. Tom’s emails were handed over in part of the “Deflate-Gate” investigation. What they turned up was not evidence of cheating, but his rock star attitude.
In Oct. 2014, Tom complained to his manager about the color of an $8,500 winter pool cover. “What kind of morons don’t have a white cover? Can we check with another company?” Tom wrote, according to Page Six. “These f**king idiots, why don’t we have that same cover for the year-round cover?” Eventually, Tom’s wife, Gisele Bundchen, ordered a grey cover for their pool.
Also in Oct., Tom reportedly reached out to a Tom Ford executive to see if she had the latest fashions, asking “if there was anything new to show me or any updates on the polos with the rugby fabric. Also, do you have any black sneakers in the high top in my size or any suit fabrics.”
While it’s not clear Tom wanted the clothes for free, he allegedly came off a bit stingy with his time. When Francesco Aquilini, owner of the Vancouver Canucks hockey team, asked Tom to attend a dinner in Feb. 2015, Tom reportedly said he would go — for a price. “I do have one request. I am starting a foundation,” Tom reportedly wrote, adding that the organization was “to educate all athletes on sustained peak performance.”
Huh. Tom will have plenty of time to think about his email etiquette as he sits out the first four games of the 2015 NFL season. The NFL upheld his suspension over his “general awareness” of the ball-deflating cheating scandal. Tom still plans to fight the suspension, as HollywoodLife.com had the EXCLUSIVE on the Patriots’ quarterback plan to clear his name.
What do you think about Tom’s email behavior, HollywoodLifers? Do you think he’s a diva?
