Multiple sources confirmed to Page Six that Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen having relationship problems. The model left their family home in Tampa, Florida and went to Costa Rica after some heated arguments regarding Tom’s decision not to retire from the NFL, though he’s behind team training.
According to a source, “Tom and Gisele are in a fight right now.” The source added this isn’t the first time, too, and they always sorted things out between them.
The 45-year-old Buccaneers quarterback already missed 11 days of training last month. When asked about his absence, he said, “It’s all personal … everyone’s got different situations they’re dealing with. We all have really unique challenges to our life. I’m 45 years old, man. There’s a lot of s–t going on.”
Tom and the 42-year-old model have two children together – Benjamin, 14, and Vivian, 9. The athlete also as a 15-year-old son, Jack, with his ex Bridget Moynahan.
A second source said, “There’s been trouble in the marriage over his decision to un-retire. Gisele has always been the one with the kids.
“They had agreed he would retire to focus on the family, then he changed his mind.”
Another insider added: “They have a fiery relationship. Gisele is a bit hot-headed — she has that Brazilian heat!”
Gisele told British Vogue in May: “I don’t think relationships just happen; it’s never the fairy tale people want to believe it is. It takes work to be really in sync with someone, especially after you have kids. His focus is on his career, mine is mostly on the kids.”
While Tom suddenly decided to un-retire despite promising to spend more time with his family, Gisele is also working again and she’s in a new Burberry campaign.
The second source said, “It’s almost like Gisele was like, ‘Well if you’re going to keep playing, so will I.” She’s resentful that Tom is still the football superstar.”
Tom admitted in 2020 when he appeared on Howard Stern’s SiriusXM show, “A couple of years ago, [Bündchen] didn’t feel like I was doing my part for the family.
“She felt like I would play football all season and she would take care of the house,” he explained. “She wasn’t satisfied with our marriage. So I needed to make a change in that. Her point was, ‘Well, yeah, of course this works for you. It all works for you. But it doesn’t work for me.’”
