Tom brady divorce, Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen Hire Divorce Lawyers
Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen’s marriage, the recent subject of rampant tabloid speculation, may be coming to an end, according to a new report from Page Six.
The New York Post gossip page reported Tuesday that Brady and Bündchen have hired divorce attorneys, signaling a potentially permanent separation for the couple, who married in February 2009.
People magazine reported a slightly different version of events Tuesday afternoon, citing anonymous sources who said Brady was “trying to figure out what to do” after Bündchen hired a divorce attorney, and that the quarterback is actively seeking their own representation.
A representative for Brady and Bündchen had not responded to a request for comment from Boston.com at the time of this article’s publication.
Page Six cited several unnamed sources in its report, with one saying the pair’s protracted argument over Brady’s decision to retire from the NFL could ultimately “be the end of them.”
“I don’t think there’s any comeback now,” a second anonymous source told the tabloid. “They both have lawyers and are looking at what a split will entail, who gets what and what the finances will be.”
Sources told the tabloid that any divorce would involve Brady and Bündchen sharing custody of the couple’s children, as both parents are “very involved in their children’s lives.” Bündchen gave birth to the couple’s son, Benjamin, 12, in 2009 and daughter Vivian, 9, in 2012. (Brady also has a son, Jack, 15, from a previous relationship with actress Bridget Moynahan.) ).
Page Six initially reported on September 1 that Brady and Bundchen were having marital problems, highlighting Brady’s decision to retire from the NFL as the main focus of an “epic feud” between the pair. Both Page Six and CNN reported that the couple lived separately.
Later that month, however, Page Six quoted a source reportedly close to Bundchen as saying that the couple’s marital struggle “wasn’t because of [Brady’s] decision to go back to playing football; sometimes things are complicated”.
The next day, another source told Page Six that the marriage’s troubles weren’t due to infidelity, and that Brady and Bundchen had “recently struggled to make their marriage work and have broken up.”
Long before Brady announced his retirement from the NFL on Feb. 1, 2022 (and then changed his mind 40 days later), he and Bündchen both acknowledged having difficult discussions about the quarterback’s career and the impact it had on their lives. his family.
Bündchen has said that she didn’t love the punches Brady took on the field. During a 2017 interview with CBS, Bündchen said Brady had suffered a concussion that the Patriots hadn’t previously reported, adding that he didn’t think it was “a healthy thing for anyone.”
Meanwhile, Brady has acknowledged several times that Bündchen wanted him to do more on the home front. In an April 2020 interview with Howard Stern, Brady said the couple had been in therapy after Bündchen wrote him a letter detailing his dissatisfaction with his marriage.
“She didn’t feel like I was doing my part for the family,” Brady said. “I had to make a big transition in my life to say, ‘I can’t do all the things I wanted to do for football like I used to.’ I have to take care of things in my family because my family, the situation was not good. She was not satisfied with our marriage.”
In August, Brady took an unexpected 11-day sabbatical from the Buccaneers during the preseason, which he later explained was due to personal reasons.
“It’s all personal,” Brady said. “You know, everyone has different situations that they’re dealing with, so we all have really unique challenges in our life. You know. I’m 45 years old, man. There’s a lot of shit going on. So you just have to try to understand life as best you can. You know, it’s an ongoing process.
