A Sports and Fashion Collaboration for the Ages
For the past decade, Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen sparkled in the media as one of the most famous power couples on the planet. With the kind of name recognition that could only come from massive domination in two industries — fashion and football, in this instance — the pair formed their own special kind of supernova.
New England Patriots legend Tom Brady was photographed at fashion events like the Met Gala while Brazilian supermodel Gisele would often be seen on the New England football field. In public, the two certainly seemed to support one another’s goals. However, cracks appeared from time to time. On Howard Stern’s show, Brady once revealed that Bündchen sent him a letter insisting that Brady should help to carry some of the weight in their marriage. If the quarterback didn’t spend more time with his family, Gisele hinted that she would leave the marriage.

Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen’s Domestic Bliss?
Over the course of their marriage, Brady and Bündchen definitely dazzled the public. Their beautiful home was featured in a “73 Questions” sketch that Gisele participated in for “Vogue”, and it was even showcased in “Architectural Digest”. Indeed, it seemed as if the world could not get enough information about this fascinating couple. Even their diet went viral.
When their personal chef, Allen Campbell, revealed that Brady didn’t want to eat nightshades due to potential inflammation, internet searches for nightshades went soaring. Social media users couldn’t get enough of the fact that Brady and his family refused to dine on mushrooms, peppers, and even tomatoes. It’s not far-fetched to imagine that some fans may have even researched what it might take to adopt a similar diet — with 80 percent whole grains and vegetables alongside 20 percent fish and lean meat.
Like many other famous couples, Bündchen and Brady would weather the storm when strange stories about them would pop up in the media. Rumors swirled about Bündchen and her sister reportedly seeing a plastic surgeon in Paris. Comments made by fashion designer Tom Ford on Gisele’s future aging process also went viral. Through it all, Brady and Bündchen stayed resolute and put up a fully united front. Of course, during this time period, Brady would also experience some of his best football moments.
Trouble in Paradise
Over the past few months, speculation has heated up on the gossip websites that all was not well in the state of Brady and Bündchen’s relationship. Gisele was seen without her wedding ring, and she seemed to miss a few football events that she normally would have attended. Suddenly, celebrity watchers such as Instagram’s DeuxMoi were on alert, reporting on every move that the football star and supermodel seemed to make.
When Gisele — always a fan of rituals — was seen having her car sage smudged, curious fans wondered if she was having the healer remove Brady’s energy from the vehicle. Over the years, Gisele’s predilection for making Brady carry talismans and creating tinctures had become well-known. Now, occult experts took to TikTok to weigh in on whether or not the supermodel “removing her energy” from Brady might have an impact on his football career. It would appear that the situation has been weighing heavily on Brady, which may account for why the quarterback was missing during some of the Bucs’ training camp.
The 45-Year-Old Quarterback
According to sources that have spoken with “People” magazine and a number of other sources, Bündchen became extremely upset when Brady chose to unretire from football. Signing on for another season with the Tampa Ray Bucs, he seemed to surprise Gisele. Just a few years back, Bündchen expressed her concern over Brady’s health, indicating that the quarterback has received several conscussions and noting that football is a very aggressive sport.
If the tabloid sources are to be believed, Bündchen believed that Btady had nothing left to prove with his football career. Indeed, with so many accolades and winning rings, it would take a lot for any other quarterback to come anywhere close to Brady’s record. And, with his advancing age, the risks of playing football with players who are decades younger definitely seem to muliply.
A Financial Quagmire for the Wealthy Couple
After both Bündchen and Brady hired prominent divorce attorneys, public chatter turned to how they might split their massive fortune. With their two children in the mix, there will also be custody matters to discuss. At the moment, construction has been halted on the Florida mansion that the family was building together. At a total cost of almost $30 million, the huge Miami property will undoubtedly become another issue to engangle as Brady and Bündchen prepare to separate their assets.
Massive Amounts of Money and Multiple Homes Across the World
With a Tribeca condo, a Montana property and a place in Costa Rica, the couple will need to figure out a way to split up their real estate. They even have a yacht that will need to be accounted for as well. Brady’s net worth is estimated at $250 million while Gisele’s is estimated to hover at around $400 million. Although Brady’s wealth has increased over the course of the marriage, Gisele’s has declined due to her retirement from modeling.
Over the past several years, however, it would appear that Bündchen has been doing the lion’s share of childcare. When attorneys and judges weigh in on this incredibly expensive divorce, it should be interesting to see how the facts play out in the eyes of the law.
