Problems in Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady’s relationship are said to have started when the latter “retired” from the NFL.
Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen were once known as a power couple in entertainment and sports. The couple started dating in 2006 and got married in February 2009. They have two children together, son Benjamin (12 years old) and daughter Vivian (9 years old). However, after Brady temporarily retired from the NFL earlier this year, stories of supposed “tense” between the pair began to surface. Brady announced his retirement from the NFL for the first time in 22 years, but returned to the field 40 days later.
In September, a source told US Weekly that Gisele Bundchen was unhappy with Brady’s career decision. They stated:
“Gisele was furious when Tom left the NFL after just a few months.” “There’s a conflict between them.”
According to the source, this defender is “doing everything to repay” his wife:
“They go through it and try to get to the other side.”
According to another source, Brady’s professional life has affected his personal life, and Bundchen is “disappointed” and “spending time away” with her husband:
“Returning to Tampa after retirement made his personal life stressful.” Gisele is fed up with his job taking precedence over their family, who have always supported him.”
Tom Brady took a leave of absence in August to “deal with personal issues” and when he returned he addressed the situation:
“Everyone solves problems differently, and we all face different obstacles in our lives.” Sir, I am 45 years old. There’s a lot going on, so you just have to try to understand it as best you can. You know, it’s a never-ending process.”
In 2020, the NFL player told Howard Stern that his job often affects his family relationships:
“[Gisele] I don’t feel like I’m contributing to the family.”
Page Six reported last month that Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady had an “epic fight” and who had previously fled the family’s Tampa estate to vacation in Costa Rica:
“Tom and Gisele are currently in conflict… His choice to give up has caused marital strife. Gisele was always responsible for the children. He promised to retire to spend more time with his family, but then changed his mind.
A short time later, a source told People that the pair were going through a “tough phase” in their relationship:
“There was a lot of anxiety. She was overjoyed when he announced his retirement, and angry when he changed his mind. They were going through a tough time. But I know they’re trying to figure it out. figured it out, or at least he did.” and make it work.”
Gisele Bundchen rushed to Twitter to express her support for Tom Brady’s first game of the season, amid lingering rumors. Bundchen told Elle that same month that she shared helping her husband:
“I did my part by being there for [Tom].” I moved to Boston with the intention of establishing a safe haven and loving atmosphere for my children to grow up in, and be there to support him and his aspirations.”
The Brazilian beauty went on to say that she “fulfills” her role as a mother and wife and is eager to discover her own purpose:
“I am very happy to see my children achieve success and grow up into lovely little creatures, and to see them succeed and satisfied with their careers.” I feel like I’ve done a good job with it at this point in my life. I have a long list of things I need and want to achieve. “At 42, I feel more connected to my mission.”
Meanwhile, according to another insider, Brady and Bundchen have been living apart for a month and Bundchen is “sad” about the situation:
“Gisele has long told Tom he needs to spend more time with his family, and when he retires, she feels she’s got what she wants.” She was upset when Tom decided to return to the NFL. Gisele is devastated.”
Earlier this month, multiple media outlets reported that the couple had hired a divorce lawyer. On Friday, Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady announced their divorce and confirmed that they are separating.
