AceShowbiz - Tom Brady's representative has broken silence amid wild rumors that the former NFL player is dating Kim Kardashian. In a statement on Monday, May 15, the representative shut down speculations that the two stars are in any romantic relationship.
A "well-placed" source spilled to Page Six that there's "currently 'no romance' " between Tom and Kim. It was additionally said that "The Kardashians" star asked Tom for advice as she's looking to buy property at Baker's Bay Golf & Ocean Club, an exclusive members-only residential community in the Bahamas.
"Kim and Tom are friendly. She phoned him and asked him for his advice on Baker's Bay," the insider said. "She's been eyeing property there for quite some time."
Similarly, another source told Entertainment Tonight that "Tom and Kim have been in touch because Kim is looking to buy property where Tom has a vacation home," before insisting that the pair are "just friends." The source added that the SKIMS founder and the newly-single former athlete "have friends and business partners in common, but they are not dating."
Meanwhile, Internet users reacted strongly to the dating rumors with some of them going against them together. "RUN TOM RUN!!!!" one fan suggested, while another wrote, "He needs to steer clear of her." One person simply noted, "Gross."
However, some others were excited over the potential new Hollywood couple. "Now that would be an interesting relationship," one person claimed. Meanwhile, another said, "I would love to see this happen!!"
The rumors that Kim and Tom might be dating first emerged following a blind item posted by DeuxMoi. "This A list reality star was spotted touring properties in this warm locale. The thing is, she was using a certain newly single A list athlete's golf cart as her mode of transportation. Just friends or maybe more?" the blind item read.
After realizing that it was about Tom and Kim, a source told the gossip blogger that the two stars "were in touch because Kim is looking to buy property in this area where Tom has a vacation home." The informant added that while the former football quarterback and the reality TV star are just friends, they are said to be "having fun" with each other.
Tom allegedly told the source that Kim helped him with something. The 45-year-old former athlete, who recently split from ex-wife Gisele Bundchen, also reportedly said that they "have a lot in common," and said that the "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" alum "is a really admirable person."
