Are Tom and Gisele on the Brink of Divorce?
On top of all the Deflategate drama, Tom Brady might now be dealing with threats of divorce from Gisele Bündchen.
In an exclusive that hit New York newsstands today, US Weekly reports that the world’s highest-paid model recently consulted with a divorce lawyer after ongoing spats with the New England Patriots quarterback, according to an unnamed Brady insider.
The tabloid outlines these alleged disputes as results of both Bündchen’s controlling nature and Brady’s increased stress levels following a four-game suspension from the Patriots.
“Tom’s become very nasty and irritable and acting out on her,” says a second unnamed source.
The source also tells Us Weekly that Bündchen has always tried to keep her husband on a leash, saying that “she knows there are temptations out there and how hot he is, so she doesn’t take chances.”
Bündchen was “livid,” says the Brady insider, after seeing a photo of Ben Affleck’s former nanny Christine Ouzounian wearing all four of the quarterback’s Superbowl rings aboard a private jet.
But despite the possibility of divorce, the couple, who’s been married for six years, is still making an effort to schedule date nights—they were spotted holding hands after a Trainwreck screening in Boston a few weeks ago—and living together in their Boston rental while their Brookline mansion is undergoing renovations, according to the tabloid.
On Instagram, where the supermodel is highly active, there’s no sign of trouble (see below, in which Bündchen proclaims her love for Brady, despite US Weekly‘s report that the couple did not celebrate their birthdays together). Is the social media display of marital bliss simply a publicity stunt? Only time will tell.
