Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady’s bodyguards are set to appear in a Costa Rican court after allegedly firing shots at photographers at their wedding two years ago.
Supermodel Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady’s bodyguards, Alexander Rivas, Miguel Solis and Manuel Valverde, will be appearing for a hearing in Puntarenas on April 29 after photographers Yuri Cortez and Carlos Aviles pressed charges against them for firing their weapons at them during the couple’s wedding.
There were no injuries in the shooting but the rear window of the photographer’s SUV was shattered.
The attorney for the photographers stated, “The photographers were just doing their job, and it’s terrible what they did to them. They were taking photos from a long distance away, not bothering anybody, when these stupid goons thought, ‘Let’s go roust them.’ I’m glad they are being prosecuted.”
The paparazzi were reportedly on public property when the guards forced them onto Gisele’s private property and demanded their cameras and film.
The photographers would not comply and one of the men on the security team fired their weapon.
One paparazzi stated, “I put my foot on the accelerator and I heard the gunshot that shattered the rear window and broke the windshield. It very nearly hit me.”
Football star Tom Brady said the claims were not true and that his security team did not have weapons. Brady said, “It’s absolute b.s. We found two guys on our property, and we told them to get out. Our security didn’t even have guns. There were no shots fired. (sic)”
