Tom Brady Hires a Divorce Lawyer After Gisele Bündchen Retains Her Own. A source says that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback hired his own divorce attorney due to marital issues. Tom Brady hired a divorce attorney after his wife Gisele Bündchen did, a source confirmed. In light of their marital problems, it was reported on Tuesday that Brady, Bündchen’s husband of 13 years, was “trying to figure out what to do” and that Bündchen had consulted a divorce lawyer.
The news was initially reported by Page Six.
Brady’s decision to return to the NFL this season after a brief retirement has contributed to “a lot of tension” in the marriage for the couple, who have two children together (son Benjamin Rein, 12, and daughter Vivian Lake, 9), as well as Brady’s son John Edward, 15, with his ex-girlfriend Bridget Moynahan. Bündchen stated that she had her “concerns” about Brady continuing to play in an interview with Elle this summer.
The Brazilian model stated, “Obviously, I have my concerns. This is a really brutal sport, and I have my children and I would like him to be more present. “I’ve absolutely discussed such topics with him numerous times. But in the end, I believe that everyone needs to choose a course of action that suits them. He too must follow his joy.”
Despite this, the seven-time Super Bowl champion claims that he is “completely devoted” to his kids throughout the offseason and makes time for them between practices and games.
The insider claimed that “no other husband gets six months off a year to be completely devoted to simply their family.” And certainly, he travels for games and trains during the season, but he also spends a lot of time with his family.
The seven-time Super Bowl winner and supermodel will have to share their multimillion-dollar assets and decide who would get custody of their children if Bündchen and Brady do decide to get divorced. They most certainly have a prenuptial agreement in place, according to NYC divorce lawyer Jacqueline Newman of Berkman Bottger Newman & Schein LLP, who is not associated with the couple.
According to Newman, “people with this level of money don’t typically get married without a paperwork that will stipulate what will happen if it doesn’t run its course.” “There may be disagreements regarding the assets that were most likely obtained throughout the marriage. Having said that, provided they move forward with it, I believe they will resolve this privately.”
The best thing they could do, according to Newman, “is drag their kids through a custody dispute,” so they should ideally reach an agreement on how to care for the kids.
