After weeks of rumored marital strife, Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen may be on the verge of divorce.
As the divorce rumors persisted, a source close to the couple revealed that they no longer live together. According to Page Six (via Radar Online), Bundchen returned to the United States from Costa Rica following her heated arguments with Brady.
She reportedly returned to Florida but has yet to visit their Tampa home. Instead, she spent more time in Miami.
The source said:
“Gisele isn’t back with Tom. She flew back to Florida to be with her kids but hasn’t been to their home in Tampa. Tom is still hoping they can reconcile. Gisele has told him she’s leaving him before, and they always made up when she cooled down.”
Bundchen chose Miami because Brady currently resides on their estate.
It all started when the NFL superstar decided to return for another season. According to PEOPLE, the decision caused a lot of tension between them.
Bundchen was reportedly pleased when he announced his retirement, but things soured when he decided to return.
Reports about their relationship surfaced after Brady was excused from practicing with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for “personal reasons.” In a press conference, head coach Todd Bowles stated that the team discussed his absence before the July training camp.
He returned 11 days later, claiming that people like him face unique life challenges.
Brady has been married to Bundchen for 13 years. They tied the knot in 2009 at St. Monica Catholic Church in California, one month after getting engaged.
Although their marriage is currently being tested, Brady previously stated in 2018 that the model “wasn’t satisfied” with their relationship. It then served as a wake-up call, forcing him to put his family first.
Brady announced his retirement from the NFL after 22 seasons earlier this year. He spent most of his 22-year career with New England, where he was drafted in 2000 to replace Drew Bledsoe.
He successfully won seven Super Bowls and 15 Pro Bowls throughout his career.
He also became preoccupied with “Brady,” a project he co-produced under his banner 199 Productions.
