Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen hired divorce lawyers according to multiple sources as reported by Page Six.
Their marriage has been on the rocks for weeks now and they’ve been living separately for the last two months since their huge fight. Presently, they’ve been looking at means on how to divide their properties.
A source told the outlet, “I never actually thought this argument would be the end of them, but it looks like it is.”
“I don’t think there will be any coming back now. They both have lawyers and are looking at what a split will entail, who gets what and what the finances will be.”
Sources close to the 45-year-old athlete and 42-year-old supermodel shared that they’re very hands-on when it comes to their children and would share joint custody in case they separate. They have two children together: Benjamin, 12, and Vivian, 9. Brady also has a 15-year-old son with his ex, Bridget Moynahan.
In case they’ll file for divorce, experts said it’ll be in Florida where they’re primarily based. Another insider who knows the couple confirmed that they’re planning to divide their assets. Brady has an estimated overall net worth of $250 million from 2021-2022. Forbes named him as the ninth highest paid athlete in the world in May. He’s the endorser for Sam Adams, Foot Locker, Under Armour, and Tag Heuer.
In December 2020, Page Six also reported that they acquired a property on Indian Creek Island in Miami amounting to $17 million. Further, the couple has a condo valued at $3.6 million located at Tribeca in 70 Vestry St. and a property at the Yellowstone Club in Montana valued at $5.7 million. They also have a home on the Nicoya Peninsula in Costa Rica.
The two fled to Tampa before Hurricane Ian and went to Miami where they’ve been staying apart. A source told the outlet that Bündchen has been staying in their Miami home.
Many sources close to the model emphasized how “sexist” it is to say that the split has something to do with the model’s issues, a separate source claimed, “As with many marriages, it’s not just one thing. Gisele has made it clear that she worried about Tom playing football and that they had had many talks about it.
“But they have had a series of blowups over the past few years, and this time it looks like there’s no going back.”
