Patriots' Brady upset show cameo perceived as shot at owner Kraft

Brady continued, "It was meant to be something different than that". I can see why it's being viewed that way, but I assure you that was not my intention.

Brady later said the media had taken the clip out of context and that he and Kraft have a good relationship.

The Patriots quarterback then made it clear that his scene had nothing to do with Kraft's incident.

"It wasn't about [Kraft], except you want to try to use something and use it to take it out of context. Is that what you choose to do in the media?" I have extraordinary respect for women; my morals and my soul were shaped by the most wonderful woman, the love of my life, who I was blessed to have as my partner for 50 years. With a response as rock solid as he had, I can't imagine the media will continue to hound him with questions about any controversy in the Living With Yourself cameo.

"Throughout my life, I have always tried to do the right thing".

Show creator and writer Timothy Greenberg backs up Brady's point in an interview with Refinery 29. Greenberg said the show's producers approached Brady's people with the idea past year, and the quarterback was interested but wanted to wait until after the season. "I think there's a lot of things that are said that are taken out of context that you choose to make a headline with as opposed to understanding what it's actually about". "I think that is a very bad assessment of my relationship with him. I would never do that".

Rising star: Shapovalov lands maiden ATP title in Stockholm
Denis Shapovalov defeated Serbia's Filip Krajinovic 6-4, 6-4 in the Stockholm Open final to claim his first career ATP title. Shapovalov converted on 4-of-5 break points and saves 3-of-4 to improve to 2-0 against Sugita.

As GoLocalProv reported, in the cameo, Brady is shown exiting a spa smiling, while actor Paul Rudd is sitting in his auto outside the spa trying to decide whether or not to go in. Per the series plotline, the spa replaces a depressed Rudd with a new and improved version of himself. Although Miles has no idea what the spa does, he is aware that whatever they do is going to cost him $50,000. Even if it wasn't intended as a Kraft reference, you can see why he'd be angry with how things turned out, but if Tom Brady was actually aware of the full scene, you have to wonder why he would ever agree to it in the first place.

"First time?" he asks Rudd.

"Sixth", Brady replies, referring to his six Super Bowl wins. However, Brady still came through for the cameo anyway, and here we are.

Tom Brady can throw shade, too.

Greenberg admits that he thought that the Kraft scandal would nix the scene, and that he was surprised that it still worked out after that story broke. Giardi also shared a photo of Brady and Rudd in front of a green screen. "He just won another Super Bowl!"

However, viewers saw the scene as a possible shot at Patriots owner Robert Kraft who was arrested earlier this year and charged with two counts of soliciting prostitution at Orchids of Asia Day Spa & Massage in Jupiter, Fla. So it was not a reference to Kraft's situation at first.
