Tom Brady is an absolute financial powerhouse.
The legendary NFL quarterback, Tom Brady, earned a substantial amount of money during his illustrious playing career. However, it pales in comparison to what he received from cryptocurrency mogul Sam Bankman-Fried.
As revealed in Michael Lewis’ latest book, Brady was compensated a staggering $55 million for just one week of work alongside Bankman-Fried.
“He paid Tom Brady $55 million for 20 hours a year for three years,” Lewis disclosed in an interview with CBS.
Unfortunately, Bankman-Fried’s fortunes took a nosedive, and he now faces the prospect of imprisonment.
“[Brady] genuinely liked him, and he was optimistic about the opportunities he presented,” Lewis explained.
Over time, as Brady failed to receive a satisfactory explanation for the downturn, his sentiments shifted. Lewis stated, “[Brady] has reached a point where he believes, ‘He deceived me. I’m frustrated. I want to disassociate myself from it.'”
Initially, Brady was said to be deeply affected by the downfall, but he has since adopted a new perspective.
