"Gabriel is intense in everything. He is intense to fall in love, intense in everything, and passion ends."
Three-time world champ Gabriel Medina’s mammy Simone has chosen the nuclear option during an interview for Brazilian TV; her interlocutor, I must add, is a strikingly unique beauty with an absolutely fantastically curvaceous body, skin a rich, ripe, radiant apricot, waist-length hair ashimmer beneath the lights.
Little Gabriel, who is twenty-eight and who makes his return to competition at the Grajagan Pro in two weeks, quit the tour just before the opening event at Pipe citing his fragile mental health.
“I have emotional issues that I need to deal with,” he wrote.
It soon emerged he’d busted up with his thirty-three-year-old Sports Illustrated model wife Yasmin Brunet and she was, allegedly, refusing to leave his beachfront house in Sao Paulo, putting towels over the security cameras so no one could see what she was doing.
Before that, there was the estrangement of his mama, Simone, and step-dad, Charlie, which included a messy split of assets and a wild feud between his then-wife and his mama over the existence of a supposed sex tape starring Brunet.
Now, in the interview with Domingo Espetacular, Simone has revealed she has not spoken to her son for two years and that his relationship with Brunet was only slowly revealed.
“She never left (Gabriel’s house). I just saw there was a car with a driver that brought the clothes, brought a little each week. At first, we received her very well but over time I felt that Gabriel started to get weird.”
Simone says she was bummed she wasn’t told about the couple’s North Shore wedding, “Even if you wanted an intimate ceremony, out of respect you could just tell us” and says that she found out about the break-up via social media, adding her chilling coup de grâce.
“I knew it wouldn’t last. I said it to myself… I know him. Gabriel is intense in everything. He is intense to fall in love, intense in everything, and passion ends. It wasn’t love.”
But, does it?
I would think structural issues, pathological jealousies for instance, more than a dimming passion would ice a year-long marriage.
Or maybe he, or she, woke up one morn, listened to the same dribbling bullshit coming out of a hole on their spouse’s smirking kewpie doll’s face, and went, big mistake, I’m out.
