LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Gisele Bundchen was Tom Brady's biggest supporter, but news of their alleged heated arguments and hiring of divorce lawyers was widely discussed on the Internet. Apparently, the former Victoria's Secret angel was accused after it was reported that she was unhappy that her husband, 45, had returned to football even though he had announced that he would retire.

The 45-year-old quarterback declared his retirement on Tuesday, February 1, 2022, but circumstances have changed, and Bündchen is dissatisfied when he unretires after 40 days. "There's been trouble in the marriage over his decision to un-retire. Gisele has always been the one with the kids," a source told Page Six. "They had agreed he would retire to focus on the family, then he changed his mind. They have a fiery relationship. Gisele is a bit hot-headed — she has that Brazilian heat!"

Bündchen had told British Vogue in May, "I don't think relationships just happen; it's never the fairy tale people want to believe it is. It takes work to be really in sync with someone, especially after you have kids," before adding, "his focus is on his career, mine is mostly on the kids."

Bündchen has returned to work and is presently featured in a new Burberry commercial. "It's almost as if Gisele said, 'Well, if you're going to keep playing, so will I,'" a second source explained. "She's resentful that Tom is still the football superstar."

Rumors emerge that Tom and Gisele are on their way to ending their relationship. In reference to the disagreement over Brady's decision to spend time in the NFL rather than at home, a source told Page Six, "I never actually thought this argument would be the end of them, but it looks like it is." Multiple sources told that the couple hired divorce lawyers. The source said, "I don’t think there will be any coming back now. They both have lawyers and are looking at what a split will entail, who gets what and what the finances will be."

The two parents will probably ask for joint custody of their two kids; Brady also has a teenage son from a previous relationship with Bridget Moynahan. Benjamin, 12, and Vivian, 9, are their children; Brady is also the father of Jack, 15, who was born to him and his ex-girlfriend Bridget. 

Fans of Brady started slamming Gisele as the actress has been blamed for derailing his career. A user wrote on Twitter, "It's always the women's fault for not being a doormat with these dudes. Tom Brady made his choice and so did Gisele." Another user wrote, "I'm sorry, but then don't marry him. You sign up for this when you said "I do", then you want to take away his passion & job at 45, when he has 5 months of the year time with you on vacation already?? This take is the definition of selfish arrogance. Shame on anyone who liked it." "From what I understand, his choice was to unretire and play another season of football, against her wishes. Her choice was divorce," wrote another.

Immediatly fans of Gisele rushed to her defense after trolls slammed her. One user wrote, "Tom really seems to care about football more than his wife. She was worried about his health and he decided to come back this year. Probably other stuff but that is the public facing stuff." One user penned, "So wait. This person is trying to claim that the men are more important because they're famous athletes? I'm sure the marriages in question each have aspects where it's just not working out. Can't just blame the women for it because they're not the only ones in the marriage." Another user wrote, "More like she wanted him home more and he wouldn’t commit." One user wrote, "Gisele put her career on hold for a man who made it clear he wouldn't do the same for her. Companionship means sacrifices on both sides and he couldn't even give her that. He picked what he valued more apparently." Another user wrote, "I get the feeling he made this decision on his own…and she was blindsided. Remember it was a tweet."
