Gisele Bundchen talking to divorce lawyer for 'weeks' amid marital woes with Tom Brady
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Counted amongst the most celebrated sports personalities of this generation, Tom Brady is currently going through a tumultuous phase of his marriage. Amid the growing rumors of supermodel Gisele Bundchen and the 45-year-old NFL star about calling it quits, the People magazine has confirmed that the estranged couple has enlisted divorce lawyers.
A source has also informed that Bundchen, 42, has been seeing hers for a "awhile" now. "Gisele has been talking to a divorce lawyer for awhile but to my knowledge has not filed anything and is still talking to Tom about their issues. This is not something that just happened today," it claimed.
Interestingly, the source added that hiring a lawyer doesn’t always mean that the couple will file for divorce. "Many people talk to lawyers but don't go through with it when the realities of money set in. But in this case, both sides have plenty, and it isn't one-sided, so it could be a different situation," the source emphasized.
This week, Bundchen hired a divorce attorney in the wake of a troubled marriage, and meanwhile Brady is "trying to figure out what to do," People magazine alleged.
As reported previously, the couple have been living separately for the past couple months following a fight. The two have been going through "a lot of tension" lately in the marriage, an insider reveals, with his decision to return back to the NFL this season post-retirement being a major reason. It revealed, "She was so happy when he announced his retirement."
According to divorce attorney Due Moss with Chemtob Moss Forman & Beyda LLP, "The big challenge for him is everything will be determined at the height of his income because to get him to come back, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers had to come up with a lot of cash — and that is the baseline for determining the support in this case.”
The pair got married in 2009 and have two children, Benjamin Rein, 12, and Vivian Lake, 9. Brady has another son with his ex-girlfriend Bridget Moynahan, John Edward.
