Rumors have circulated over the past couple of weeks that Tom Brady has been in some hot water with his wife Gisele Bundchen, over his decision to unretire after promising he was done.
Sources have come out and said that the two are separated, as Gisele is reportedly staying in Miami instead of their home in Tampa, Florida.
This could be the reason for Brady’s 11 personal days away from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ training camp, as he was trying to resolve some family issues.
However, Gisele tweeted out on Sunday night before their game against the Dallas Cowboys, rooting on her husband:
With that being said, Gisele has spoken out about her feelings towards Brady’s unretirement, in a recent interview with ELLE.
She said that she was worried about the violence of football with Brady’s age, and how she also wishes that he was around their kids more. Although, she not “begging him” to quit like the story is often reported in the media.
“I have definitely had those conversations with him over and over again. But ultimately, I feel that everybody has to make a decision that works for them. He needs to follow his joy, too.”
ELLE also reported that the comments were made several weeks before reports were being made that the two were in a “rough patch” in their marriage.
That being said, she does add that’s done “her part,” sacrificing a lot for Tom’s football career:
“I’ve done my part, which is to be there for Tom. I moved to Boston, and I focused on creating a cocoon and a loving environment for my children to grow up in and to be there supporting him and his dreams.
Seeing my children succeed and become the beautiful little humans that they are, seeing him succeed, and being fulfilled in his career—it makes me happy. At this point in my life, I feel like I’ve done a good job on that.
I have a huge list of things that I have to do, that I want to do. At 42, I feel more connected with my purpose.”
Brady threw for 212 yards and one touchdown and one interception in the Bucs’ 19-3 win over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.
