Last Thursday, Gisele Bundchen was photographed kissing a man, not her husband, Tom Brady, at the Vogue 90th Anniversary party in Paris.
Bundchen's mystery party companion: NYC art dealer Helly Nahmad, who explained the controversial pics to Brazilian newspaper O Dia (via Huffington Post).
Nahmad, who once dated another Brazilian model, Ana Beatriz Barros, told the paper that he and Bundchen are longtime friends and that he even introduced her to old flame Leonardo DiCaprio. What about that kiss? "Gosh, it was a kiss on the cheek," he said, claiming that the camera caught them at a deceptive angle.
He added that New England Patriots star Brady even saw the talked-about photos of Nahmad and his wife and laughed.
Married since February 2009, Bundchen and Brady welcomed son Benjamin last December.
