'It doesn’t work for me': Gisele Bundchen left Tom Brady a note about being unhappy 2 YEARS before divorce
BROOKLINE, MASSACHUSETTS: With the now circulating news that NFL quarterback Tom Brady and his supermodel wife Gisele Bundchen have filed for divorce, it is widely speculated that it was Brady’s return to the game following retirement that sparked the cracks in their relationship.
However, a report by Cosmopolitan may suggest that the destruction of their marriage didn’t start all that recently. On ‘The Howard Stern Show’ in 2020, Brady revealed that Bundchen had left him a note that said she wasn’t happy with the way their marriage was, with Brady giving his professional sports career more importance than his personal life. This had upset Gisele quite a bit. The couple share two children, Vivian and Benjamin, and Bundchen is also stepmother to John, Brady’s son from his previous relationship with actress Bridget Moynahan.
“There was a couple years ago, she didn’t feel I was doing my part for the family,” Tom said. “She felt like I would play football all season and she would take care of the house and then all the sudden when the season would end, that I’d be like, ‘Great, let me get into all my other business activities. Let me get into my football training.’ And she’s sitting there going, ‘Well, when are you going to do things for the house? When are you going to take the kids to school and do that?’”
“She wasn’t satisfied with our marriage, and I needed to make a change in that….Her point was, ‘Of course this works for you…but it doesn’t work for me,’” Tom admitted. “I had to check myself. Because she was like, ‘I have my goals and dreams too.’”
In the interview, Brady also admitted that he had safekept the note that his wife had written for him, to remind him of when the marriage wasn’t all that peaceful and as a push for him to keep doing better for his wife and children. While it seemed as if things were going well at the time, unfortunately we now know that it is not- what with Brady and Bundchen finally filing for divorce after 13 years of marriage.
In early October, it was reported by Page Six that the star quarterback and the former Victoria’s Secret Angel had hired lawyers for divorce, shortly after Brady’s sensational un-retiring within just 40 days of leaving the sport behind. They are now headed towards a rumored $400 million private settlement.
