The real reason Tom Brady can tune out all the rumors about his divorce from Gisele Bundchen.

Tom Brady is a well-known Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback who has been married to model Gisele Bundchen since 2009. After 13 years of marriage, the couple has been the subject of contentious headlines regarding a rumored impending divorce.

While neither party has confirmed any of the split rumors, Tom Brady breaks his silence amid months of online speculation about the couple.

In a recent episode of the SiriusXM podcast “Let’s Go! with Tom Brady, Larry Fitzgerald, and Jim Gray,” the football quarterback explained why he blocks out social media commentary amid his marriage controversy by comparing it to a language he understands: football.

Brady explained:

“Most of the people in the conversation don’t have a full idea of what’s really going on. Certainly in football it’s a challenge because you know, there’s so many little nuances and details to a very intricate sport in terms of strategy and what you’re trying to accomplish. No one really outside of what the group is can really help us anyway.”

While Tom did not specify what issues or events have been causing him stress recently, he offered advice on directing his attention to important matters rather than unnecessary social media noise.

Tom Brady expressed:

“We’re not robots. You wake up every day trying to do the best you can do, understanding that life has its stresses and to deal with them with a great support system and understanding and having some introspective in your life where you can look at yourself and say, ‘Where do I need to commit my time and energy to? And how can I lessen some of the stress and lessen the burden on me so that I can be good for people around me?'”
