There’s been yet another update in the latest Gisele Bündchen/Tom Brady maybe-divorce (?!?!) drama. TL;DR: sh*t’s about to go down. Earlier today, Page Six announced that the supermodel has hired a divorce lawyer following months of alleged back and forth tension between herself and the quarterback, with reports indicating the couple has been living separately for the past few months following one argument in particular. “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,” the Page Six insider said.
Soon after the story broke, another source dished to People that Tom is “trying to figure out what to do” in the wake of the news. Moreover, it was reported that the athlete might actually be looking for a lawyer himself. 👀 Insiders previously told the outlet that issues first arose after the football star decided to lift his retirement after 40 days and return to the NFL earlier this year.
The decision allegedly set the couple back, as Gisele had allegedly looked forward to Tom having more time to spend with their family, which includes their son Benjamin Rein, 12, daughter Vivian Lake, 9, and the footballer’s eldest son John Edward, 15, whom he shares with ex Bridget Moynahan. “[Gisele] was so happy when [Tom] announced his retirement, and she wasn’t thrilled at all when he went back on that,” a source disclosed to People late last month. “They’re hitting a rough patch. But I know they’re trying, or at least he’s trying, to figure it out and make it work. He wants to get through this and for things to get better.”

FWIW, others close to Gisele have underscored that to reduce the issue to being about Tom getting back on the field is “sexist,” which fair!! One person in particular added that, “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.”
Interestingly enough, just a couple of weeks ago Gisele seemed v excited about prepping for her own comeback, telling Elle she was ready to get back into full-on career mode after quite literally cheering Tom on from the sidelines for years. “I’ve done my part, which is be there for [Tom],” she confessed. “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. Seeing my children succeed and become the beautiful little humans that they are, seeing him succeed, and being fulfilled in his career—it makes me happy. At this point in my life, I feel like I’ve done a good job on that. I feel very fulfilled in that way, as a mother and as a wife…And now it’s going to be my turn.”
