Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen are experiencing marital problems. However, they have nothing to do with NFL. An insider close to the model said, “nothing to do with his decision to return to the NFL,” adding that such claims are “sexist.”
The source also told Page Six, “The problems are not due to his decision to play football again — sometimes things are complicated.” Aside from being “sexist”, the insider explained that such speculation wrongly points to Gisele as the cause of their marriage problems.
Recently, the outlet exclusively revealed that the 42-year-old supermodel and the 45-year-old Buccaneers quarterback had a fight before the model went to Costa Rica. The insider said, “Tom and Gisele are in a fight right now.”
Another source also shared, “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.”
Meanwhile, Gisele was absent during the Tampa Bay Buccaneers game on Sunday. Tom was hoping she would be there because it was their team’s first at home game. However, their children were present at the game. Jack, 15, Benjamin, 12, and Vivian, 9, appeared on the field before the game started. They were there with Tom’s mother and sisters. As for Gisele, she was still in New York City working on several projects.
The couple hasn’t spoken publicly about their feud. In August, Tom told sports reporters that he missed 11 days of training camp because of “personal s–t.” On the other hand, the former Victoria’s Secret model also talked about asking the football to “be more present” with their family during a cover story for Elle.
She said, “I have definitely had those conversations with him over and over again.”
She explained, “I’ve done my part, which is [to] be there for [Tom]. I moved to Boston, and I focused on creating a cocoon and a loving environment for my children to grow up in and to be there supporting him and his dreams.”
Gisele also confirmed she’ll continue working as an environmentalist and model, saying, “Now it’s going to be my turn.”
