Tom Brady hangs up on radio interview
Alex Guerrero remains an out-of-bounds topic for New England Patriots star Tom Brady.
Brady hung up during a live radio interview Monday on WEEI when he was asked repeatedly about his longtime personal trainer. This is now the second time Brady has abruptly ended an interview over questions about Guerrero.
Earlier this summer, Brady scoffed at a Boston Globe reporter asking about Guerrero being blamed for Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman’s four-game suspension for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. (Edelman, like Brady, is a client of Guerrero.)
On Monday, WEEI asked about Guerrero reportedly being on the Patriots’ team plane on Friday and after acknowledging he had been, Brady said he did not want to answer any more questions about the subject. When WEEI pressed on, Brady hung up.
This is also not the first time Brady has ended his weekly WEEI interview. Last January, he cut his interview short over a host at the station calling his 5-year-old daughter, Vivian, an “annoying little pissant.”
Guerrero,too, is a controversial figure in New England with the trainer reportedly being a source of friction between coach Bill Belichick and Brady.
