Did Gisele Bundchen order Tom Brady to get hair transplants?

Back in September, Tom Brady ended up throwing his wife under the bus in an interview. When asked about his new Justin Bieber-esque hair, Tom told inquiring reporters that they would “have to talk to his wife” about getting him to cut it. Tom made it sound like Gisele makes all of the styling decisions for the family, and that he’s probably pretty whipped. Anyway, The National Enquirer has an absolutely hilarious story about Gisele and Tom and Tom’s hair. Apparently, Tom is balding…? He has a bald spot, according to this report, and Gisele is so appearance-obsessed that she ordered him to go to a hair transplant specialist in Rhode Island. Oh… please let this be true.

Gisele Bundchen doesn’t want her hunky NFL star husband Tom Brady to be thrown for a hair loss! She sent her QB to a top hair transplant specialist to deal with his thinning crown, the Enquirer has learned.

Brady – who was recently mocked by Justin Bieber for copying his trademark hair – showed up alone at Leonard Hair Transplant Associates in Cranston, RI, on November 9, where he saw Dr. Robert Leonard.

“Tom wants help with his thinning hair and bald spot,” a source told the Enquirer. “Tom parked his SUV at the rear of the building. He spent over an hour consulting with Dr. Leonard before he slipped out the back door and drove off.”

Tom, perhaps in an effort to compensate for his thinning dome, has grown his hair long this season. But sources insist it is Gisele who is behind his move to consider a hair transplant.

“She wants to maintain that perfect-couple image – the handsome quarterback with a full head of hair and the stunning model with her own long, flowing locks,” added another insider. “She pushed him to see the hair specialist.”

[From The National Enquirer, print edition]

I was trying to look through our recent photos of Brady to see if I coul detect any hint of a bald spot… I can’t really see anything, though. Which seems to negate any validity this story might have. I will say this though – if and when Tom ever does lose his hair, I do think Gisele will demand he speak to a hair transplant specialist, just because I do think she’s probably slightly obsessed with their images and styling. Of course, maybe this visit to the transplant guy was real, and it’s more of a preventative measure, you know? Like, “Baby, someday you will lose your hair so why not just get the transplant ready now?” Just tell him to shave it off, Gis.

    I used to think he was soooo hot. I don’t know if it’s because he seems so whipped or what, but he just doesn’t do it for me at all since he’s been with Gisele…she’s sucked all the hotness out of him.

  2. Me1st says:

    wow, he is whipped!!!

  3. guesty says:

    u so know she did!!! or had some extensions put in.

  4. Jeri says:

    The Ted Danson balding effect.

  5. brin says:

    He is a wuss. Is his dad bald? That’s a good indicator if Tom will be.

  6. Lindy says:

    She probably would make him do that. I’m sorry but I have yet to read a single interview with her where she does not come across as a sanctimonious, judgmental, superficial, controlling beeyotch. Urgh!

  7. happygirl says:

    You actually inherit baldness from your mother’s father…we should check out his grandpa.

    @Disco…totally with ya!

  8. Bonfire Beach says:

    I second the “please let this be true” sentiment!

    Also, he does appear to have a high hairline. I don’t think wearing a helmet as much as he does helps any hair situation he might have going on.

  9. mslewis says:

    Oh, GAWD, people!! Leave this couple alone!! Tom Brady does not have thinning hair. If he did it would show because those football helmets rub the hair off your head. If Tom had any kind of bald spot or thin spot, it would show, especially on high definition TV!! And believe me, the fans would notice!!

    And, come on. This is the National Enquirer talking!!

  10. LolaBella says:

    Tom is hot, hair or not.

    I still remember the days before they were married when TMZ cameras used to follow him around NYC, yelling ‘Errand Boy, Errand Boy’. LOL.

    If this story is true, I don’t see the big deal. So what if she suggested it? He’s a good looking man, maybe he’s vain about his appearance as well and decided that a visit was a good idea to see what he could have done.

    Or gain, maybe he’s vain and decided to look into the procedure himself without her prompting.

  11. isabel says:

    @ at comment #5 balding is inherited on the maternal side.

    My husband is bald, shaved it years ago instead of the sad sack ‘Charlie Brown’ look some men cling to. I think if a man just cuts it off at the pass (ha) it can really work. Shave it before it slowly thins. Besides, men with bald heads have more testosterone. In a way they can act like it’s some badge of masculinity of they want to make themselves feel a little less upset:)

  12. padiddle says:

    I remember before he grew his hair long there was (to me and my fiance) a CLEAR indication of receding hairline…and then BAM – Bieber bangs swept over it, and VOILA – receding hairline problem gone!

  13. Sarah says:

    If she’s so worried about how he looks, she should be more concerned with the fact that he’s been looking like a strung out crackhead in the last couple interviews I’ve seen with him.

  14. lorana says:

    I really don’t like this couple! bleh

  15. brin says:

    @happygirl, @isabel….ooops, thanks, you’re right! But I do think he’s a wuss, lol!

  16. Nina says:

    I don’t believe this,stop the hate and the envy.Leave this family alone,they are both gorgeous people and i so like his hair.

  17. Will says:

    Can’t blame him…very few guys look good bald. I sure wish I could have my hair back.

    And in response to above comments:

    1) Bald men don’t have more testosterone…they are just more sensitive to a byproduct of testosterone.

    2) Baldness doesn’t necessarily come from the mother’s father…anyway, in my case, I’m the unlucky one (bald, 6’3″, broad shouldered) while my younger brother is only 6′ tall and has all his hair long after I went bald.

  18. Heather says:

    I think he’d be handosme bald. His hair now is ew.

  19. Meanchick says:

    I just dislike Gisele “Achin-in-my-butt’ Bundchen. She is insecure, which is why she is obsessed with looks and relates everything in her life to it.

  20. jessica says:

    He looks like a young Kevin Bacon in that last pic!

  21. Delta Juliet says:

    I have been in lust with Tom Brady for years. Now, not so much. The doofus-y hair has killed it for me.

  22. Lori says:

    He always looks a little too Frankenstein-y to me, I think it’s that giant square head. I did like him on SNL, though — I give props to anyone who doesn’t take themselves too seriously.

  23. happygirl says:

    @brin – I agree :) LOL

  24. puhleez says:

    What a superficial bitch. I can’t wait until she’s old and disgusting, she’ll hate herself so much and if she doesn’t, I’ll see to it that she does.

  25. Mia says:

    Oh, goodness…If she did (which I doubt), so what? He doesn’t seem to have a problem with his hair, and I doubt real Patriots fans care either. He’s winning & that’s all that matters.

  26. Bryana says:


    I love when you post about Gisele and Tom! It’s always the best reminder to the reason why this site is called celeBITCHY.

    If it was anyother couple, you would be the first to call this story BS (it’s so obvious!) but nooo, for them, the worse it gets, more fun you and the commenters have, and more reasons to hate them too right??

    Gisele, get over yourself!!!

    Lets see, first she managed to steal a single guy from his pregnant (by the time, was yet clueless about the baby)EX-girlfriend. To achieve that must take some work right??

    Then, when the baby became a part of their lives, she dared to love him! God, the nerve!

    Then she got pregnant, had her own bb, and was inflatuated about the wole experience when she should have hated all along, right?

    Then, she attempted to dominate the planet by creating a worldwide law, to force mothers into giving their newborn baby, for the period when they are more fragile and vulnerable than they will ever be, the most dangerous food known to mankind: breast milk! And she made sure to reach all the right people, pass every single senate and be approved by every country leader, by simply giving a quote to a MAGAZINE. What a terrorist!

    And now, not satisfied yet, she, a model since the age of 13 that made a fortune out of her looks, asks/tells her husband to have a hair implant, because she is so shallow, and obvioulsy will never love him when he loses all his hair, even though he looks like freaking Rapunzel!

    OMG! She is the Devil reincarnated! How could she not know that all women in the world must love a bald man, and be glad their husbands are losing hair, just like all husbands are so happy when we start to gain weight, get old, and wrinkly right? Forget about wanting your partner to look their best, have some vanity at all and encourage them to change what they don’t like, and accept whatever they choose to be or do. That’s the reaction that a shallow, superficial, frivolous, selfish, obsessed with looks type of person would have.

    On top of everything, she donated 1,5 million dollars to Haiti, has 2 lines of shoes with part of the proceeds going to help save the rain forest in her country, donates her time to volunteer work both in US and Brazil, and gives her own money while helping raise awareness to several different causes.
    Why is she not in jail for these crimes against humanity?

    Let’s all keep praying to the Lord, to make this marriage end soon enough, while we keep wishing bad things happen to them, nit-picking every single thing they do or say, questioning their looks, better yet, lets compare her innocent baby to his innocent brother, helping create hate and tension between them.

    PS: Be careful not to bite your tongue or the fingers you people use for typing, or you might accidently get a taste all that venom of yours.

    GO PATS! Love TB.

  29. richard samuel says:

    HELLO????? Yes, it’s true — just google tom brady and “bald spot” and you’ll see the evidence! There are sites dedicated to thinning hair and Brady is the poster boy!

  30. truthSF says:

    Here’s a link clearly showing Tom Brady balding:


    and from a different angle…


    And this link shows where his front hairline is receding:


    And finally, you can’t tell me this guy is not balding, not that there is anything wrong with it(hello Jason Statham and Vin Diesel, yummy).


    p.s. this is off topic, but has anyone seen these photo shoots of Gisele Bundchen being carried by some sexy, naked, big beautiful ass black men? Now I hate her, some bitches just have it all, damn!!

  31. marisa says:

    he looks like a jackass with that hair.

  32. Buck says:

    Before his hair “came back”, he was shaving it, and it was obvious he was thinning. http://www.thesuperficial.com/2007/02/tom-brady-bridget-pregnant.jpg http://kittykittygossip.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/tom-brady.jpg http://images.starpulse.com/Photos/Previews/Tom-Brady-nfl-01.jpg

    In that last one he looks like Daniel Tosh….who was also clearly balding on the first season of Tosh.0 and now no longer is. Also look at Steve Carrell in the first couple seasons of The Office compared to now. If you have money they can fix anything.

  33. Trippin says:

    Can’t stand him or her.

  34. bagladey says:

    I believe this story, but Tom better not be balding if he knows what’s good for him because Gisele is not going to have it. If he develops a serious bald spot he’s going to get divorced.

  35. min says:

    Hes hot, love long hair.
    I never understand why people are interested in his hair.lol

  36. Jm says:

    I guess he’s hot if you’re into neanderthals.

  37. Chris says:

    @Bryana – ITA!!! So true!! Bitchy People just love to hate on the gorge!! Completely ridiculous interpretation skills. How could a breatfeeding awareness comment turn into a women rights march of hate? Is their narrow minded view so clueless to the fact that in third world countries, formula is extremely expensive or even nonavailable, or the benefits both women and children get exclusively from breastfeeding? Go to google people and stop the hate, just cause y’all too damn concerned with YOUR LOOKS, instead of doing the BEST for YOUR CHILD.

    @truthSF THANK U so much for the pics girl! Boy, he should just shave it all off, or keep it really short. Maybe he is the one not wanting to go bald. He seems fairly vain to me. Most guys I know, would hate to go bald. Bald guys hate to be bald. If anyone had the money, they would try all they could to keep their beatiful locks..

  38. Chris says:

    PS.: Last pic – he still looks like he has huge entrances on both sides…

    is it possible he didnt really got implants, but the new hair length allowed him to cover, “hide” those balding spots?

  39. Haters Gonna Hate says:

    He is awesome

  40. Raven says:

    He’s not the only celebrity that has done it, and in our image worshiping society it doesn’t surprise me.

    I have friends considering getting it done even though their wives or girlfriends say it’s silly, they look fine the way they are, so if Gisele was nagging him to get it done, he doesn’t need that hassle.

  41. bagladey says:

    Thanks TruthSF and Buck for the links. Tom Brady is DEFINITELY balding – no doubt about it, and I think the Bieber-hair was planned to cover the transplant work. I wish him success with that. As a famously good-looking man, balding must be really demoralizing for TB.

  42. Cleo says:

    Maybe she just wants him to do it because it’s reputedly massively painful. It’s not going to endear him to ANYONE. His brow and eyes are really weird. Good call on the Ted Danson likeness. Maybe he’s got some Silk Road in him which really would make him and Gisele Bundchen opposites.

  43. Page says:

    he’s so hawt.

  44. Isabel says:

    Gisele is Brazilian. Despite it being one of the poorest countries on earth, the numbers of people who’ve had cosmetic surgery there are astronomical. Pro capita the highest, I even think. They’re completely obsessed with appearances.

  45. Isa says:

    I don’t think that every balding man should just shave his head. Some can’t pull that look off.
    Tom’s head is kind of square, I don’t think it would look right.

  46. Red Rooster says:

    I never thought of him as that attractive until I saw him with long hair — I loved it!

  47. Chris says:

    Gisele should stop getting her panties in a Bundchen and let him choose his own hairstyle.

  48. coley says:

    Don’t bad mouth Tom Brady!!!

  49. TB says:

    Nina, Babe, what planet are you on? This is not some nice, normal family. The byotch doesn’t eat! And if we all needed to be T O L D
    Bubbies-on-a-Stick there wears the pants…..I actually feel sorry for Brady. Like a lot of guys, he let his little head make all the decisions early on and wound-up being Ego-Woman’s doormat. Didn’t anyone see all the photos on TMZ when he was off/injured? Running her errands, picking up her mail at their P.O. Box. It was clear she was/is just waaay too bitchen to get her own T.P. AND, way too bitchen to show up at even ONE of her husband’s football games. What a sweet, supportive wife. Thank GOD she’s only had boys (one biological/one poor Bridgett Moynihan’s with Brady – you know – right before he cheated on her with Antelope? I mean Giselle). The world doesn’t need anymore judgmental, surface, vapid, self-absorbed, stares-into-a-camera-as-to-why-she’s-on-this-planet females. Blech.

  50. Kazoo81 says:

    Wow, TB. what an extremely sexist post. i hope YOU don’t have any kids to pass on your antiquated male/female ideology.

  51. Camille says:

    And I thought only ‘Brangelina’ had lunatic fans :lol: .

  52. MimiBRASILMFU says:

    OK 45 @ISABEL I hope you choke on the poison that comes from your foul mouth. Who do you think you are to speak of a people that despite the difficulties is smart enough not to vote 2x on a president dumber than a door. A president that leads the country in two stupid wars to stay in power.
    And surely you are confusing Brazil with your country that is the most superficial and hypocritical on the face of the earth.
    Never open your mouth to speak of a peaceful country with many problems. YES. But with happy people that knows how to VOTE and enjoy life.
    And other thing the word superficial and the and concern about appearance is common in the culture of your country and has meaning only when referring to the U.S Nation. So STFU BITCH

  53. Katey says:

    It kinda weirds me out that in all the pics i’ve seen with her and her son, she has him in girly prints or a bonnet. For the longest time i thought they had a daughter.

  54. Chris says:

    So what’s their acronym? Brunchen?

  55. jc126 says:

    Close one with the Colts today! But the Pats won. : )

  56. Jacqueline says:

    LISTEN, you guys seriously need to stop the hateration against Gisele. Im from Brazil and we are very proud of her but she’s not perfect either. She has a brand and smart for her for planning it out. Who wouldn’t? I wouldn’t stand next to her because she would make me uglier than I actually am but she seriously cant be that bad. Tom is a grown man, who can make his own decisions or choose to go along. His marriage, his problem. I always hear you guys bashing Gisele, if you see her on Brazilian tv the reporting is very different and so are her interviews.

  57. ragdoll says:

    I’m wondering if everything is still hunky-dory with the dynamic duo. It seems that she’s rarely in Boston even on game day. And just last week Tom’s father was gave an interview raving about what a “great” husband and father his son is. Lately her modeling pics seem to be taking a turn toward pornography. Things that make you go hmmmmm. . .

  58. alejandro says:

    @isabel brazil one of the poores countries in the world???? i’m sorry but you really do need to start reading more since brazil it’s in fact the 10th biggest economy of the world and 3rd of the americas

  59. Cleo says:

    It’s complete cowardice to grow a forward flowing combover to hide balding hair. I didn’t realize that could be what he/she is doing until I saw the Bruno wig on sale on Amazon.com and realized a bunch of balding Germanics are probably doing this – in fact, I actually saw a German news program about Germans losing their hair (English language) a few years back – both male AND female. Too bad they didn’t save all that hair they collected from the concentration camps!

  60. John Souza says:

    I hate to break everyone’s bubble but, the TBRADY MASS PLATE does not belong to Tom Brady. That is the plate that was seen at Dr. Leonards.
    He has no bald spot.
