Tom Brady And Gisele Bundchen Are Living Separately
One week into the 2022 NFL season, the Brady family is not in good shape. People say that Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen are "living separately" right now.
Each of them is staying at a different house right now. It's more bad news about the marriage of the famous couple.
As soon as Gisele Bundchen gave an exclusive interview to Elle magazine about how she felt about Tom Brady continuing to play football, rumors started flying about whether or not the two were married.
Gisele said in the interview that she is worried about it and that she would like Brady to be more involved in the lives of his kids. She also said that she thinks she should have time to do the things she loves.
Since Tom Brady decided to come back to the Buccaneers after retiring at age 45, it has been clear that something is going on with him. The one that stood out the most was that he wasn't with the team for 11 days during the preseason.
People on social media also noticed that Brady hasn't looked all that healthy lately and that something may be hurting his health. This probably has more to do with his mental and emotional health than his physical health. A source tells Us that Tom and Gisele still don't agree about his retirement.
“They are currently living in separate houses, but continue to communicate.”
Brady, 45, took a leave of absence from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers a month before he and his ex-girlfriend moved in together.
During a press conference in August, Buccaneers head coach Todd Bowles said, “He’s going to deal with some personal things,” Bowles also said, "There's something he needs to handle."
The 45-year-old quarterback first said he was leaving the NFL in February, a year after leading the Buccaneers to victory at the 2021 Super Bowl. Brady said at the time,
“I have loved my NFL career, and now it is time to focus my time and energy on other things that require my attention.”
Six weeks later, though, the man who had won seven Super Bowls changed his mind. In March, Brady said on Twitter,
“These past two months I’ve realized my place is still on the field and not in the stands. That time will come. But it’s not now. I love my teammates, and I love my supportive family. They make it all possible. I’m coming back for my 23rd season in Tampa. Unfinished business LFG."
For her part, Bundchen, who is 42, told it like it is about how she feels about her husband going back to football. She said in Elle's October 2022 cover story, which came out online on Tuesday, September 13.
“Obviously, I have my concerns, this is a very violent sport, and I have my children and I would like him to be more present. I have definitely had those conversations with him over and over again. But ultimately, I feel that everybody has to make a decision that works for [them]. He needs to follow his joy, too.”
In his "Let's Go!" podcast with co-host Jim Gray on Tuesday, Brady talked about how his priorities have changed over the years he has spent playing in the NFL.
The supermodel helped Brady with his career while raising their two kids, Benjamin, 12, and Vivian, 9. She is also the stepmother of Brady's 15-year-old son Jack, who he has with his ex-wife Bridget Moynahan. Bundchen said, who married the athlete in 2009.
“I’ve done my part, which is [to] be there for [Tom]. I moved to Boston [when he played for the Patriots], 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.”
On Friday, September 9, an insider told Us only that "there is tension between them" because Brady has been in the NFL for so long. The source also said that the famous athlete is "doing everything he can to make it up to" Bundchen, so there may be hope for reconciliation. An insider said,
“They’re working through things and trying to come out the other side.”
Tom Brady is clearly worried about what's going on in his family life, and it's becoming more and more clear that the best quarterback of all time will need to step away from the game to save relationships that are on the verge of falling apart.
Gisele Bundchen and Brady may be able to work things out, but for now, it seems likely that they will do so apart from each other. There doesn't seem to be a way out of this situation until Brady stops playing football.
If Gisele has her way, this could be his last season in the NFL.
