They have been married for 13 years and have two children.

One is an adored quarterback: a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he won no less than seven Super Bowls, becoming the most successful player in the National Football League (NFL).

The second is one of the highest paid models in the world, posed on the cover of a thousand magazines, and was listed among the most powerful women in the world in 2014, according to



No one would have imagined that the fairy tale between Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen could one day be torn apart.

Still, both the pro athlete and the model have reportedly hired divorce attorneys,

Page Six

revealed on Tuesday, October 4.

The duo, who would have been living separately for two months, would thus consider dividing their empire, comprising a real estate portfolio of 26 million dollars (26 million euros).

Some relatives of the couple go further.

According to them, Tom Brady and his wife have already agreed on a fair custody arrangement for their children Benjamin, 12, and Vivian, 9 - the sportsman also being the father of John Edward, 15, born from his past relationship with Bridget Moynahan.

An “epic conflict”

The first rumors around an imminent break had circulated at the beginning of September.

Page Six

then evoked an “epic conflict” between Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen, in a relationship since 2006. The latter would not have appreciated the reversal of her husband.

At the beginning of February, the American football player had indeed announced his retirement… Before reconsidering his decision, 40 days later, and putting on his cleats.

Six months after this about-face, Gisele Bündchen would have left their home in Tampa for Costa Rica.

"There were problems in their marriage because of Tom's decision (...)," an anonymous source told the online media.

Gisele was always the one who took care of the children.

They had agreed that he would retire to focus on their family.

Then he changed his mind."

Since then, the storm is brewing.

A tumult that hinted at certain clues, distilled over the last few months.

Fairy tales

Already, in August, the disappearance of the athlete, who had been conspicuous by his absence for eleven days of training, had raised some questions.

“All this is personal, had mysteriously declared Tom Brady.

Everyone has problems.

We all have unique challenges in our lives.

I am 45 years old.

There's a lot going on."

Three months earlier, Gisele Bündchen affirmed as for her, in the columns of

British Vogue

 : “I do not think that the relations are (…) the fairy tales in which people want to believe.

It takes work to really get in tune with someone, especially after having kids.

Tom is focused on his career, and mine is mostly our kids."

"I did my part"

A scheme that would no longer suit the model.

This one would have argued with Tom Brady that she had taken great care of Benjamin and Vivian, as well as their various residences, to allow him to continue his career in the NFL.

She would have hinted that she now wanted to focus on hers.

“I did my part, which is (to be) there for (Tom)”, she had indicated in the columns of the American


, in mid-September.

Before continuing: “I feel very fulfilled, as a mother and as a wife.

And now it's my turn to be at work."

A final verdict

This estrangement could have seemed temporary, in the light of the past reconciliations of the couple.

But recent events indicate that this is not the case.

Witness the strange absence of Gisele Bündchen in the first game of the season, during which the Buccaneers faced the Green Bay Packers, on September 25.

The model didn't sport her wedding ring at the gym on Monday, October 3, either.

For his part, Tom Brady had posted on Instagram a video of him and his children, whom he drove alone to school for the start of the school year, on August 29.

And if the duo were to really face each other in court, for


, the verdict would be final.

“Gisele is not after Tom's money, she has it too, can we read in the media.

She does not seek to surf on her success;

she already has some.

In the divorce court, and in the people's court, there is always a party that has the upper hand.

In this specific case, despite defying all sexist laws of social order, this person is undoubtedly Gisele.”
