Tom Brady, Gisele Bundchen & Robert Kraft ‘Will Lose ALL Investments In FTX’s $32 Billion Collapse’

Crushed by crypto! Tom Brady, Gisele Bundchen and Patriots owner Robert Kraft ‘among investors who will lose their entire investments in FTX’s $32 billion collapse’

Tom Brady, his ex-wife Gisele Bundchen and former employer Robert Kraft are among the stakeholders who lost their entire investment in FTX’s $32 billion collapse.

Bankruptcy papers filed Monday show the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback owns more than 1.1 million shares of FTX common stock, while Bundchen owns another 680,000 shares. Kraft, the billionaire owner of the New England Patriots, owns 479,000 common stock and 43,545 preferred stock through one of his companies, KPC Venture Capital LLC.

The previous value of their respective investments remains unclear, but the company itself was once valued at $32 billion after founder Sam Bankman-Fried raised $400 million in investments.

Bundchen went so far as to appear with Bankman-Fried at the Salt Crypto Bahamas conference, where they discussed the sustainability of the cryptocurrency industry.

Bankrupt companies rarely return investors’ money because federal law dictates that creditors must be repaid first and shareholders last.

“At the end of the day, we won’t be able to recoup all the losses here,” John J. Ray III, an executive who specializes in recovering lost assets from failed businesses, said last month.

Brady’s agent Don Yee and a spokesperson for Robert Kraft did not immediately respond to DailyMail.com’s request for comment.

FTX was a top cryptocurrency exchange that made major inroads with investors, thanks to celebrity endorsements, including ads featuring Brady and Bundchen. The pair also received stakes in exchange for FTX’s endorsement.

Bankruptcy documents from the former crypto exchange show the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback owns more than 1.1 million shares of FTX common stock, while Bundchen owns another 680,000 shares.

FTX has since collapsed and last month the US government filed criminal and civil lawsuits against Bankman-Fried, the 30-year-old founder of FTX, accusing him of widespread financial fraud.

Brady and Bundchen are also charged in a class action lawsuit brought by FTX investors who believe the former power couple duped them into suffering substantial losses. Brady, 45, even deleted old tweets in which he promoted FTX.

Other investors losing money in FTX include Sequoia Capital, Tiger Global Management and the Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan, which previously owned the NHL’s Toronto Maple Leafs, Toronto Raptors of the NBA, Toronto FC of the MLS and the Toronto Argonauts of the CFL.

Bankman-Friend faces eight federal charges, including charges of supervising massive fraud. He pleaded not guilty to all counts.
