Tom Brady and Gisele Lawyer Up and Are Headed for an Amicable Split, Sources Say

Maybe un-retiring from football was a bad idea, TB12.

Well, it didn’t take very long for the Tom BradyGisele Bündchen rocky romance rumors to manifest into a rocky romance reality. 

Sources have revealed to various press outlets that the Brazilian supermodel has hired a divorce lawyer, and NFL quarterback husband Tom Brady is following suit. 

The news comes after over a year of uncomfortable tensions between the two stars, primarily after Brady announced he was coming out of retirement to once again score big with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

“I don’t think there will be any coming back now,” a source just revealed to Page Six. “They both have lawyers.”

Whispers of marriage woes rose recently when the NFL season officially kicked off, and Gisele was nowhere to be found at her hubby’s first game back in September.

Only a short congratulatory tweet from Gisele cheering on the Buccs was posted—perhaps to make it seem like all was well? 

Page Six also reported the two superstars were living in separate homes in Miami while Hurricane Ian raged through Florida, and other sources have added that there’s been nonstop turmoil in paradise since Tom has returned to the field this season.

Disappointing news for sure, but sources explained to Page Six that the split seems to be as amicable as it can be, all things considered.

It seems the pair will file for joint custody of their children: Benjamin, 12, Vivian, 9, and Jack, 15, Brady’s son with ex Bridget Moynahan. Their $26 million property portfolio will also likely be split, which certainly makes things quick and easy.

Gisele’s social media channels have been pretty quiet lately, despite her recent trip to Costa Rica and a few other in-person events. 

One other person tangentially connected to the two has been more active, however. Antonio Brown, who previously played for the New England Patriots and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers alongside his quarterback buddy, posted an old Super Bowl photo of himself hugging Gisele after the big win.

Brown was released from the Buccaneers after having an alleged “meltdown” during a New York Jets game last season, according to Sportskeeda. He’s since been doing a bit of traveling and entrepreneurship, according to his Instagram page, but why he posted a photo of his former teammate’s soon-to-be-ex-wife is anyone’s guess.

The caption simply reads, “Put That S*** On” with a few pointed finger emojis, an assumed reference to his viral rap song, whose lyrics are pretty racy but do hold a few possible Tom Brady references, including, “Ab why you make the GOAT retire?”

We’re sad to see such a hot, star-studded relationship fall to pieces, but the game isn’t over yet. As Tom and Gisele head towards the end zone, we’re sure more details about the split will be revealed. We just hope they both play fair.
