Gisele Bundchen divorces Tom Brady

NFL football star Tom Brady says he was willing to go to therapy along with marriage counseling if necessary before divorce was an option.

A source close to Brady shares with PEOPLE that he was willing to do whatever it took to make things work with Gisele before the splitsville couple finalized their divorce this past
Friday. “This was not Tom’s idea,” says the insider of the couple’s decision to divorce. “This was never Tom’s idea.”


Tom Brady Didn’t Want Things to End with Gisele

Brady, who is 45 years old, did not want the marriage to end with Gisele who is 42 years old.
The source says that Brady was “willing to go to therapy, marriage counseling — whatever it took to make things work.”

The previously New England Patriots quarterback and now Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback had stated to the source that he did not want the kids to have divorced parents and grow up that way.

He apparently tried to make things work out with Gisele for their kids. But Bündchen felt
that “it was a little bit too little, too late,” the source says. “She gave him a lot of opportunities to fix things, and he didn’t.”

Brady was too busy following his passion during his 13 year marriage with Gisele.

Meanwhile she didn’t feel that that was what was best for him and the family and he was not listening to what she was saying.

But, now after 13 years of marriage, the pair are both legally single as o this moment. Bündchen filed for the divorce and it has been finalized on October 28th down in Glades County, Florida.

The paperwork had been finalized.

As stated, A source told PEOPLE that the former couple “agreed to joint custody of the kids,” and Brady will remain in Tampa while Bündchen will live about four hours away in Miami, where he also has a residence.

A Dream Home Becomes an Echo

Meanwhile, the pair was in the middle of building a dream home overlooking Biscayne Bay in Miami Beach which will now stand as an unfinished testament to a crumbled marriage.

The massive and exclusive residence cost them over $27M and would have boasted 17,000 square feet, five bedrooms and 11 bathrooms.

Features were expected to include a guest house, main kitchen and a prep kitchen, an elevator, a movie theater, an office, a study and a kids’ area.

Outdoor amenities would have included a generous lawn, an outdoor kitchen, a dining space, an organic garden, a yoga terrace, a meditation garden, various sports courts including a pickleball court, a staff entryway, a trash enclosure, a motor court, a pool, a cabana and a hot tub.

But now, their once-planned “forever marriage home” will go to someone else to complete and dream up.
