Gisele Bündchen speaks out publicly for the first time about her split from former quarterback Tom Brady. In the process, the supermodel clears up some rumours surrounding the marriage breakup
Gisele Bündchen has spoken out publicly for the first time about her split from Tom Brady last October.
In an interview with Vanity Fair, the Brazilian cleared up rumours that Brady’s continued football career had been a reason for the divorce: “Are you kidding me? I found out about it! I used to joke that I would be able to referee because I watched so many games. And I loved it.”
The ex-New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback initially retired in the 2022 offseason, but returned just a month and a half later to play another season in the NFL. He finally ended his career on February 1 of this year.
Brady and Bündchen continue to maintain “a great relationship “
Rather, the end of the relationship was the “piece of a much bigger puzzle”.
Bündchen also denied reports that she began dating a close friend of Brady’s shortly after the split, saying, “I don’t have a relationship with him in any way. He’s Tom’s friend, not my friend. I wouldn’t be with his friend. I wouldn’t be with that guy.”
She and Brady had “just wanted different things” in the end and had finally decided amicably to end the relationship.
Their children Benjamin (13) and Vivian (10) should not suffer as a result. That is also why both Bündchen and Brady want to continue living in Miami. “We are not playing against each other. We’re a team,” said Bündchen, who stressed that she and the former quarterback continue to have “a great relationship”.
