Just when we thought we were out of the Tom Brady “Masked Singer” controversy, they brought us back inside.
On Tuesday, Brady denied skipping Buccaneers training camp to perform on the Fox reality show.
But now a video has emerged in which Ken Jeong, a judge on the show, speculates he was watching Brady sing.
Initially, Jeong said, he thought the still-masked contestant might be Peyton Manning, but then pivoted to Brady.
“I think it might be the best ever. He just got fined for not showing up to training camp because he’s here on “The Masked Singer!” exclaimed Jeong in the clip first obtained by TMZ. “It’s Tom Brady, seven-time Super Bowl champion!”
At this point, the clip cuts out, so it remains a mystery as to whether Jeong guessed correctly.
Either way, it’s a wise move by “The Masked Singer” to continue publicizing this storyline, which we thought was canceled.
It should be mentioned that Brady’s absence from training camp has been excused, so he does not receive a fine. So this will be the last time you receive your NFL insider news from Ken Jeong.
Along with “The Masked Singer,” there were also rumors that Brady, his wife Gisele Bundchen, and their kids vacationed in the Bahamas.
