Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen’s marital woes continue to make headlines as multiple reports claim that the NFL star is “hurt” that the supermodel is the one to handle their likely divorce. People and Entertainment Tonight Brady’s sources posted similar articles alleging, “Tom is not taking things well.”
“He wants to get together and he was still hoping they could work things out. He’s very hurt and he loves having Gisele by his side. He feels abandoned in a way. He loves her family, but he wants to continue his career. He feels like he’s in a tough spot,” says an insider ET.
Yahoo Entertainment confirmed that Bundchen recently hired a divorce attorney.
“At this point, it’s more her decision to move things forward in this direction. Things are a bit difficult, personally within their family, and because they both have huge assets,” says the source.
An insider emphasizes People that is “pretty clear” Brady is “injured.”
“She feels very hurt,” says the source, adding: “She is the one driving the divorce.”
Brady reportedly hired his own attorney after Bündchen made the first move. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback, 45, and the 42-year-old supermodel share two children: Ben, 12, and Vivian, 9. He is also father to 15-year-old son Jack with his ex-girlfriend Bridget Moynahan.
“She’s playing distress and he’s playing defense,” PeopleBundchen’s source claims. “He’s trying to protect himself, protect his interests, but he’s just starting to go the legal route in his protection from her. He doesn’t want this to be ugly, he doesn’t want to fight. If the divorce is happening – and it looks like it is – he wants it to go as smoothly as possible.”
Representatives for Bundchen and Brady did not return Yahoo’s request for comment. Neither star has commented on speculation about their marriage in recent weeks. Some think Bundchen’s actions speak louder than words, however.
The former Victoria’s Secret Angel was photographed for the third time this week without her wedding ring. Page Six obtained images of Bundchen visiting a holistic healer in Miami — and they leaked the model’s car.
TMZ reports that Bundchen and Brady have hired high-profile family law attorneys in Florida and that the divorce is underway. A source calls things “as friendly as can be.” It seems the superstars are still speaking, but there is tension. Settlement terms, such as custody and property, are said to be mentioned.
