As Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady hit a rocky point in their marriage, the 45-year-old quarterback starts to show his struggle with his emotions during this time.
"It's pretty obvious that he's hurting," a source close to Brady told PEOPLE. "He feels very hurt by her.”
The two are facing divorce reportedly because Brady opted not to retire from the NFL as he originally planned, leaving Bundchen to continue raising their young children alone.
Tom and Gisele Both Retain Divorce Lawyers
For some time now, even for months, there have been multiple reports stating the issues between Brady and Bundchen, who is 42 years old. Brady had to then soon return to the NFL for another season even after he had announced his retirement but then decided to come back for more. His choice to go back then seemed to cause a lot of trouble between the couple that has been together for a long time.
Other sources state that the tension between the couple is not just because Brady decided to go back to football, that there is a lot more to it.
Just recently, Bundchen and Brady have both hired divorce attorneys as they try to figure out the next path of their lives together or not together.
A first source says, "She is the one steering the divorce. She is playing offense and he is playing defense. He wants to protect himself, protect his interests, but he's only starting to go the legal route in his defense from her. He doesn't want this to be ugly, he doesn't want to fight. If the divorce is happening — and it seems like it is — he wants it to go as smoothly as possible.”
Gisele Has Moved On
These issues seem to be difficult for a guy that is so used to winning. Another source says, "Think about it: Tom has had a very charmed life. Things always seem to go his way. He works hard, he's a good guy, he hasn't had a lot of things go wrong in his life. This is awful for him. You can tell that this really, really hurts.”
In September, a source told PEOPLE that the couple had been living apart for "more than a month," by the time the 2022-23 NFL season had started. "Gisele is busy with her own life now, and has spent time away from Tom in Miami and New York," said one insider.
Another source tried to explain that during the NFL season, the couple seems to live separate lives from each other. Brady’s decision to come back to the NFL for another season has been something that his supermodel wife can not get over, as she wants him to be more present with his kids and the family.
With divorce lawyers being present, the couple seems to be facing a potential legal battle. An insider claims that this is not just something happening today, adding that it has been a long time coming.
