A source close to the separated couple told the media on Tuesday that Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen, who have been living apart in recent weeks, have each retained divorce lawyers and are “exploring their options” with regard to their union.
Brady, a seven-time Super Bowl champion quarterback who presently competes for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and his wife, a fashion model named Bündchen, have reportedly been having “marital troubles.”
The couple, who wed in 2009, have reportedly been “living separately.”
Brady, 45, announced his retirement from the NFL in February before changing his mind. According to his head coach Todd Bowles, he took an 11-day leave of absence from training camp in August to “deal with personal problems.”
Bündchen, 42, stated in an interview with Elle magazine that she had “concerns” about her spouse going back into the field after originally retiring last winter.
According to Bündchen, “This is a really harsh sport, and I have my children, therefore I would like him to be more present.” “I’ve absolutely discussed such topics with him numerous times. But in the end, I believe that everyone needs to choose a course of action that suits them. He too must follow his joy.
Brady recently discussed some of the personal expenses of playing in the NFL for 20 years on his podcast.
“I haven’t celebrated a Christmas or a Thanksgiving or a birthday with someone I care about who was born between the months of August and late January in 23 years. Additionally, I’m unable to attend weddings or funerals, Brady remarked. “I believe there is a time in everyone’s life when they realise: “You know what? I’ve had enough and it’s time to go on and engage in other aspects of life.
