His ex-wife Gisele Bundchen attended her first Met Gala since their divorce last night.
But Tom Brady managed to tune out the festivities as he focused on his golf swing thousands of miles away.
The football legend, 45, finalized his divorce from Bundchen, 42, in late 2022, and Monday night’s gala marked the first time she had attended the exclusive bash without him since 2007. The last time she was a guest was with Brady in 2019.
As the fashionable festivities unfolded in New York on Monday, Brady was seen playing a round with a pal at the Riviera Country Club in Los Angeles that same day.
The former football pro wore a pale grey zip-up, black slacks, and white sneakers for his day on the course.

Whatever emotions he was feeling that day, he managed to conceal them as he worked on his swing.
With a gloved hand, Tom prepared to strike the golf ball with his club, looking deep in concentration.
He was pictured striking the ball in a different location, and watched it soar alongside his friend who smiled in approval.
It seems the nostalgic event across the country did little to impact Brady’s mood. Overall, the football player seemed deeply engrossed in his golf technique.
Gisele attended the Met Gala for the first time on her own since 2007 on Monday evening. She looked heavenly a stunning white ensemble from the Chanel archive, according to Vogue.
Brady was still just her boyfriend when they attended the event for the first time together back in 2008.
The latest sighting comes weeks after she admitted she still loved her former spouse but that they’d simply ‘grown apart’ after 13 years of marriage and two children together.
Gisele and the NFL superstar announced in October 2022 that they had decided ‘amicably’ to divorce and that they did so after ‘much consideration.’
