'He does, she doesn't': Gisele Bundchen is unhappy with Tom Brady's parenting style, seeks couples therapy
The 42-year-old supermodel was unhappy with how her husband has been communicating with their children and has even decided to update her prenup
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Gisele Bundchen is apparently unhappy with Tom Brady's style of parenting. The couple's seemingly perfect 13-year marriage has hit a rough patch, after reports came in that they have reportedly been involved in a string of heated confrontations.
According to Radar, the 42-year-old was unhappy with how her husband has been communicating with their children. This 'trouble' has been going on for quite some time after it was reported that Gisele left their family compound in Florida and went to Costa Rica after a fight.
Gisele and Tom were going through couples therapy, and the conversation revolved on how Tom treated their kids. The duo have a son Benjamin (12) and daughter Vivian(9). The Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback also has a 15-year-old son, Jack, with his ex-girlfriend Bridget Moynahan. Gisele accused Tom of not spending enough time with the family.
An insider told the outlet in 2020, "When Tom's had a busy day of training, he'll come home and pass out on the couch. There's a lack of effort, for sure, but what annoys Gisele more is when Tom yells at the kids for behaving badly during the time he does spend with them. She feels he should be more patient."
The couple started counseling after the Deflategate controversy. However, sources said that it was Gisele's idea and Tom was apprehensive to seek therapy. A friend said, "Things got so bad after Deflategate that they could barely speak to each other. Tom got irritable under the stress, and she started blaming him for all their unhappiness, much of which was there before the scandal. Counseling was her ultimatum."
Before the news of their intense altercation became public, the legendary NFL player for the Buccaneers missed 11 training days in August. In response, Tom said, "It's all personal. Everyone’s got different situations they're dealing with. We all have really unique challenges to our life. I'm 45 years old, man. There's a lot of s**t going on."

The couple met through mutual friends and married in 2009. Gisele's friends had urged her to update her multimillion-dollar prenup months before their marriage issues became public. An insider said to Radar in June, "The current prenup is pretty ironclad and lists how everything will be divided should they break up, but it needs to be updated and it can be if both parties agree. Gisele is rich in her own right but her friends are telling her she'd be nuts not to revise their prenup and she's likely to listen to them."
