According to PageSix, who’s been keeping up with the couple’s divorce rumors since the beginning, says:
“As previously revealed, the couple have been living separately for the past couple months following an epic fight — and they’re now apparently looking at dividing up their multimillion-dollar empire.
“I never actually thought this argument would be the end of them, but it looks like it is,” one source in the know tells Page Six.
“I don’t think there will be any coming back now. They both have lawyers and are looking at what a split will entail, who gets what and what the finances will be.”

It got more complicated when Tom Brady went to Pittsburgh for his week 6 matchup. Upon arriving with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and walking into the locker room prior to the game, Brady was seen yet again without his wedding ring, according to US News:
In photos obtained by Page Six, the NFL star, 45, was seen leaving his hotel on Sunday, October 16. Brady kept it casual as he boarded the bus to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, sporting a light blue jacket with navy slacks. The quarterback accessorized with a white watch on his wrist, however, his ring finger was left bare.
“Gisele and Tom’s friends are upset at Tom for going back on his word and coming out of retirement,” the source shared. “They hate the way Tom is refusing to bend for Gisele.”
Rumors swirled further of a rift between the couple earlier this month when the mom of two commented a prayer hands emoji under an Instagram post from author Jay Shetty.
“You can’t be in a committed relationship with someone who is inconsistent with you,” the excerpt read, with the caption, “Love is a daily effort. Some days it may come easier than others and that’s OK, but what should always stay consistent is the respect and admiration you have for your partner’s values and goals.”
During her October cover story with Elle, the Taxi star opened up about her reservations when it comes to her husband’s retirement.
Throughout the past week, it’s been rumored that Gisele gave Tom an ultimatum. As PageSix reports,
“Gisele told Tom either he leaves football to spend time with the family or she is gone for good,”
A source told Us Weekly on Thursday.
“She doesn’t want him to continue to get injured and not be able to enjoy life in the future. She is doing it for her family.”
Reps for both Bündchen and Brady did not immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.
However, this is not the first time that we hear of the NFL getting in between the couple.
