It's official: Tom Brady and Donald Trump have had a 13-year bromance.
The two reportedly like to chat on the phone, judge pageants, and play golf — not that there is anything wrong with that.
RELATED: Brady speaks out on Deflategate.
Their close ties were the subject of rampant social media speculation all Labor Day weekend.
On Saturday, Barstool Sports writer John Feitelberg snapped a picture of a red Trump "Make America Great Again" hat in Brady's locker and tweeted out the image.

On Tueday, Brady, who is married to retired super model Gisele Bundchen, confirmed the rumors: The Trump cap is, in fact, his.
“Honestly, he’s a good friend,” Brady said on “The Dennis & Callahan Morning Show.”

Trump has publicly praised Brady for years and has urged him to sue the NFL for defamation for its discredited Deflategate findings and a subsequent four-game suspension that a federal judge just tossed.
"He's a very honorable guy and an honest guy and a truly great athlete. He is really a very good friend of mine, and I just spoke to him a little while ago. He was so thrilled and so happy," Trump said last Thursday.
"I think what they've done is terrible, and he's been exonerated...I'm very happy for Tom."
