Tom Brady’s career may not be the only thing in his life on the rocks right now. The New England Patriots quarterback’s marriage to supermodel wife Gisele Bundchen could be heading for divorce.
According to Us Weekly, Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen’s relationship has been very strained, especially since Brady’s “Deflategate” scandal and suspension handed down from the NFL.
“Tom’s become very nasty and irritable and started acting out on her.”
The report also reveals that Gisele has threatened Tom, the father of her two children, with divorce if things don’t change, and soon. She’s even visited a divorce lawyer just in case.
“Tom thinks it’s only a threat, but this is definitely a rough patch.”
E! Online reports that the couple haven’t been seen together much over the summer and didn’t celebrate their recent birthdays together. However, the parents of Benjamin, 5, and Vivian, 2, aren’t throwing in the towel just yet. The sources reveals that Tom and Gisele are still sharing their lavish Boston apartment and have made more of an effort to spend one-on-one time together. Bundchen also traveled to New York with Brady on August 31 for a Deflategate court hearing.
For fans who don’t know, Tom Brady was slapped with a big 4 game suspension from the NFL as punishment for being “at least generally aware” of the team’s decision to deflate footballs in order to help win a playoff game in January, which isn’t the first time that the team has been accused of cheating.
Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen have been married for 6 years and share two children together. Tom also has another son, John, 8, with ex Bridget Moynahan. It would be a shame to see their family torn apart by divorce.
Meanwhile, NFL.com reveals that no settlement has been reached yet in Tom’s court hearing with the NFL about his suspension and involvement in the scandal.
“Brady was believed to be open to accepting a one-game suspension for not cooperating in Ted Wells’ investigation as part of a potential settlement, a source briefed on Brady’s thinking told NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport. Brady was still willing to accept the potential settlement heading into Monday’s hearing.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and Tom Brady were both in attendance for Monday’s session. NFL Media legal analyst Gabe Feldman, who was in the court room, relayed Berman’s words that some cases are simply not able to be settled.”
It seems Tom Brady’s personal and professional lives are both chaotic at the moment, but his die hard fans are hoping he’ll turn them both around and continue to succeed.
