After months of hints and speculation about Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady’s marriage, the rumors seem to have been confirmed that its on the rocks. Sources have confirmed to PEOPLE that Gisele has hired a divorce lawyer following months of “tension“.
A source tells PEOPLE that Brady is “trying to figure out what to do” after Bündchen hired a lawyer, and is looking for one himself. People reports that representatives for Bündchen and Brady did not respond their request for comment.
Sources previously told PEOPLE that a rift between Brady, 45, and Bündchen, 42, began in part when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback decided to return to the NFL earlier this year after a brief, 40-day retirement.
Bündchen had looked forward to Brady being more involved in the lives of their children — son Benjamin Rein, 12, and 9-year-old daughter Vivian Lake, along with Brady’s son John Edward, 15, with ex Bridget Moynahan — in his post-NFL career.
Another source said Bündchen did not like how Brady handled his return to the Buccaneers. “She was so happy when he announced his retirement, and she wasn’t thrilled at all when he went back on that,” the source said.
