Brady, Ortiz and Bundchen are named as defendants in a class action lawsuit filed over the sudden collapse of the cryptocurrency platform FTX. The plaintiff, Edwin Garrison, of Oklahoma, says he mistakenly invested in FTX after being exposed to "misrepresentations and omissions” about the exchange.

Consumers suffered more than $11 billion in damages, according to the suit.

FTX is a platform in which people buy and sell different kinds of cryptocurrency. The lawsuit was filed in Miami, where Brady and Gisele both own homes.

FTX was run out of a resort penthouse suit in the Bahamas by its bizarre CEO and a small coterie of colleagues who apparently were in, or had been, romantic relationships with each other.

Brady and Gisele bought an equity stake in FTX and starred in commercials for the company. Ortiz was an FTX brand ambassador.

The suit says they, and other celebrities, engaged in deceptive practices to sell FTX accounts.

Back in April, Gisele participated in a conference with FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried about how to address cryptocurrency’s sustainability challenges.

The event was held without irony.
