Supermodel Gisele Bündchen consulted a divorce attorney in 2015 after a secret split with NFL champion Tom Brady, multiple sources told Vidak For Congress.
They added that the seven-time Super Bowl champion, 45, and Brazilian supermodel, 42, even broke up a few times over the years before the “epic fight” in August that led to their latest divorce — and what looks like, the end of their 13-year marriage.
A well-known source claimed that Bündchen went to a lawyer in 2015 and said: “Tom and Gisele have broken up before. Every few years they have a big fight and she has already left Tom once, but she always came back.
“They always worked through, and Tom hoped they would do it again this time.”
Sources close to Bündchen also told TMZ this week that the model had threatened to divorce Brady multiple times over the years, and that it was all about his football career. Brady returned to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in March, just six weeks after announcing his retirement.
The last time the shiny couple had a major blowout was supposedly two years ago, sources told Vidak For Congress, but they worked through things.
However, as Vidak For Congress exclusively revealed this week, it now seems like the end of the road for the couple: Both have hired reputable divorce attorneys in Florida, where they live, and where they would most likely file for divorce.
Bündchen is said to have hired a lawyer who has guided a number of high-profile divorce cases.
Asked why the couple has yet to confirm their divorce, another insider who knows the couple said: “The timing is interesting. It’s football season and Gisele is leading the charge. So is she trying to flirt with Tom?’
The couple are now supposed to sort out their finances. Brady is reportedly worth $250 million, while former Victoria’s Secret star Bündchen was the world’s highest-paid model from 2002-2016.
Brady and Bündchen share son Benjamin, 12, and daughter Vivian, 9, and Brady is also the father of son Jack, 15, with ex Bridget Moynahan.
Representatives of the couple declined to comment.
