Tom Brady Sued Over Shooty Costa Rica Wedding

You may recall the Tom Brady-Gisele Bundchen wedding, v 2.0, this past April which featured an open bar, monkeys and intermittent gunplay. Two members of the paparazzi who hid in the jungle taking photos on the sly said that security guards hired by Brady tried to muscle them for their cameras, and then shot at them when they ran for it.

The photographers, Yuri Cortez and Carlos Avi, have filed a $1 million lawsuit against Brady and his bride over the incident. The claim that Brady hired a security force that wasn’t properly trained, and that the whole thing too closely resembled various scenes from “Romancing the Stone.” Anyway, here’s Brady’s reaction this morning:


At his locker today, Brady was asked for his reaction to the lawsuit.

No,” he said. “I got no reaction to that one.

And our first comment on the BOSTON HERALD story is:

Problem for the papparazzi is the security Tom hired for the wedding was unarmed. Kind of hard to shoot somebody without a gun. Better luck with your next phoney lawsuit. — Comment by Rebuilding for over 40 years - September 23, 2009 @ 12:43 pm

What, someone claiming to have inside information in a comments section, and then sharing precious little of it? I can’t imagine such a thing. The evidence in the above-linked SbB post is pretty convincing that someone was shooting at these guys — you should probably never take shots at guys armed with cameras if you want to get away with it.

This isn’t that big a deal, since no one got hurt. But one has to wonder what’s next for Tom Brady. This sort of crap has to weigh on him (see Weeks 1 and 2 of NFL season). Who would have thought that, back when he was a freshman at Serra High in San Mateo (completing a grand total of one pass that entire season), that Brady would one day be unable to avoid the paparazzi even in Costa Rica.
