Tom Brady was photographed spending quality time with — and at one point hugging — New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft Monday, just days after Kraft was charged with soliciting sex from prostitutes in Florida.

The snaps were taken on a Boston tarmac after Kraft, 77, and Brady, 41, exited the former’s private jet in from Los Angeles, where they’d been celebrating Oscars weekend, according to TMZ, who obtained the photos. Brady’s wife Gisele Bündchen was also present.

In one photo, the two walk side by side as they appear engaged in conversation, and in another, Brady leans down to pull Kraft in close for a hug.

The intimate moment echoes that of the apparent kiss the quarterback shared with Kraft after their Patriots beat the Los Angeles Rams to win the Super Bowl on Feb. 3.

The high-profile couple was in Los Angeles for the 2019 Hollywood for Science Gala on Thursday, for which Bündchen was honored for her environmental activism.

Kraft was spotted leaving Barry Diller’s pre-Oscars party Saturday in Beverly Hills, according to TMZ, in what was his first public appearance since the charges.

Police in Florida said Friday Kraft had been charged with two counts of soliciting prostitution in connection with a human trafficking sting tied to a chain of local massage parlors.

The billionaire allegedly paid for sex encounters on two separate occasions in January at the Orchids of Asia Day Spa, located in a strip mall in Jupiter, Florida, police said at a news conference.

He is one of more than two dozen people charged in connection with the alleged crimes, of which Jupiter Police Chief Daniel Kerr said there is video evidence, reports West Palm Beach news station WPTV.

A spokesperson for Kraft denied all allegations in a statement to PEOPLE.

“We categorically deny that Mr. Kraft engaged in any illegal activity,” the statement read. “Because it is a judicial matter, we will not be commenting further.”
