Supermodel Gisele Bündchen, who along with ex-husband Tom Brady was a major equity holder in now-bankrupt cryptocurrency exchange firm FTX, said in an interview with Vanity Fair published Wednesday she was “blindsided” by the bank’s collapse and had believed it to be a sound investment
Bündchen said she believed FTX to be a “sound and great thing based on what my financial advisers told me,” though she could not discuss specifics because of legal reasons.
She said she is “no different than everyone else that trusted the hype.”
Bündchen called the collapse of FTX “terrible” and said she is “so sorry for all of us that this happened, and I just pray that justice gets made.”
$25 million. That’s how much Bündchen’s stake in FTX was estimated to be worth before the company’s downfall, Forbes previously reported. Brady was worth an estimated $45 million.
