Why Did the Two Breakup?
Before she even met her now ex-husband and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback, Gisele Bündchen had another highly publicized relationship. In 1999, DiCaprio met Victoria’s Secret model at a runway show. The Titanic actor sought her right after. The two began dating the same year and the relationship was considered a glamorous affair.
However, after dating for 3 years the couple broke up for a brief period but got back together. The relationship finally came to an end in 2005 and they both went their separate ways. The supermodel opened up about the reason behind the fallout with People. She revealed that during her relationship with the Oscar-winning actor she used to feel alone. Bündchen also shared that she would suffer from panic attacks while she was dating Dicaprio. She shared,
“I had been smoking cigarettes, drinking a bottle of wine and three mocha Frappucinos every day, and I gave up everything in one day,”
The relationship just did not work out between the two and also the fact that they were a young couple made things more complicated. After the split, Bündchen stayed single for a year to explore herself before she met her husband Tom Brady.
