Sources have verified that Gisele Bündchen has retained the services of a divorce attorney after many months of “stress” between her and her long-term spouse Tom Brady.
According to our source, Brady is “trying to figure out what to do” after Bündchen decided to get legal representation and is searching for a lawyer of his own. The request for comment was not met with a response.
The information was first reported for the first time on Page Six.
A schism between Brady, 45, and Bündchen, 42, is said to have begun in part when the quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers opted to return to the National Football League earlier this year after a short, 40-day retirement. Sources have previously informed me that this rumor is true.
Bündchen had anticipated that Brady would be more involved in the lives of their children, Benjamin Rein, 12, and Vivian Lake, 9 years old, as well as Brady’s son John Edward, 15, who he shares with his ex-wife Bridget Moynahan. Bündchen had hoped that Brady’s post-NFL career would allow him to spend more time with his family.
According to a second source, Bündchen thought Brady’s way of handling his return to the Buccaneers was unprofessional.
According to the insider, “she was so excited when he announced his retirement, and she wasn’t thrilled at all when he went back on that,” which is how she felt when he changed his mind about retiring.
They continued by saying, “They’re hitting a hard patch.” “However, I am aware that they are attempting, or at the very least that he is attempting, to figure it out and make it work. He hopes that this difficulty may be overcome and that things will improve.”
During the offseason, the seven-time Super Bowl champion is reported to be “completely committed” to his children, and he spends time with his family in between games and when traveling.
Since the beginning of the 2022 campaign, Bündchen has been absent from all four of her husband’s games. People has been informed by a reliable source that she has been “taking time apart” from Brady.
A source said that “going back to Tampa following the retirement imposed a burden on both the professional and personal sides of his life.” Gisele is exhausted by the constant prioritization of her husband’s job above their family, who has been there for him throughout his life.
According to the explanation provided by the insider, the pair spending time away from one another has “happened before.”
According to the insider who spoke with People magazine, “They agreed jointly that Brady would retire, and then he decided by himself that he’d come back.” “She promised that they would speak about it further; but, he came back anyway before they had actually discussed it all the way through.”
They went on to say, “She’s the kind of person who weighs the benefits against the drawbacks, and she doesn’t see too many advantages to his playing anymore.”
After winning their first two games of the season, the Buccaneers have now lost three straight games in a row over the course of the previous two weeks. They are now tied for first position in the NFC South with the Atlanta Falcons, who are the club that they will compete against this coming Sunday.
