Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady ‘live apart’, source tells CNN


Superstar couple Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady, who married in 2009, are going through a tough time.

Brady, a seven-time Super Bowl champion quarterback who currently plays for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and his model wife Bündchen are struggling with “marital issues,” according to a source close to the couple.

The two are “currently living apart,” another source close to Bündchen told CNN.

CNN has contacted representatives for Brady and Bündchen.

Brady, 45, had retired from the NFL in February, only to later reverse that decision. He took an 11-day break from training camp in August to “take care of personal things”, according to his head coach Todd Bowles.

In an interview with Elle magazine published this week, Bündchen, 42, said she had “concerns” about her husband’s return to the field after retiring last winter.

“It’s a very violent sport, and I have my kids and I wish it had more of a presence,” Bündchen told the publication. “I’ve certainly had these conversations with him over and over again. But at the end of the day, I think everyone has to make a decision that works for them. [them]. He must also follow his joy.

In his “Let’s go!” podcast with co-host Jim Gray on Tuesday, Brady noted the impact of his decades of playing in the NFL in terms of priorities.

“I haven’t had Christmas in 23 years and I haven’t had Thanksgiving in 23 years, I haven’t celebrated a birthday with people who are dear to me and who were born to August to the end of January. And I can’t be at funerals and I can’t be at weddings,” Brady told Gray. “I think there comes a time in your life when you say, ‘You know what? I’ve had enough and it’s enough and time to move on, to move on to other aspects of life.
