Report: Tom Brady ‘Trying to Figure Out What to Do’ After Hiring Divorce Lawyer

There’s nothing in Tom’s playbook on what to do about a divorce.

Supermodel and wife to Tom Brady, Gisele Bündchen, has hired a divorce lawyer following months of “tension” between her and her longtime husband. Tom also has reportedly enlisted the assistance of a divorce lawyer too, as it appears a divorce is looking more and more likely. Page Six was the first to break the news.


On the football field there’s not too many scenarios that Tom is unfamiliar with, but with news of a potential divorce looming, Tom is trying to wrap his head around it.


“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. Representatives for Bündchen and Brady did not respond to PEOPLE’s 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.”

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.

“They’re hitting a rough patch,” they added. “But I know they’re trying, or at least he’s trying, to figure it out and make it work. He wants to get through this and for things to get better.

Clearly if Tom would have stay retired, they may have privately worked out any issues behind closed doors.

Not a good situation for anyone,  even for  a super human like Tom Brady.
