Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen separated over two months ago when the news of their marital conflicts came to light. The duo wrapped up their divorce quietly and swiftly without making much of a ruckus in the media. According to sources, the duo are on decent terms with each other and are co-parenting their kids together quite well. Although there does not seem to be any marital trouble, another legal trouble is right around the corner for the ex-couple.

FTX is bankrupt and they won’t be able to cover all the losses
A lawsuit was filed on November 15, which labeled FTX as a “Ponzi scheme.“According to The Hollywood Reporter, FTX “used funds obtained through new investments to pay off old investments and maintain the appearance of liquidity.” FTX’s new chief executive officer John J. Ray III held a meeting with the members of the board recently. He said, “We’re not going to be able to recover all the losses here.”
Last year, former FTX executive Sina Nader talked about involving celebrities in their advertisements. She revealed that people are hesitant of working with someone new. She said,
“Working with trusted people and institutions, people will look and say, ‘oh, if Stephen Curry or Tom Brady or Gisele or Trevor Lawrence or the entire MLB are comfortable with crypto and FTX, then maybe I can get comfortable with it too’.“
