Brady’s retirement did not last long as 6 weeks after retiring, he surprised his fans and confirmed that he was coming out of retirement as he felt he had more in the tank. Brady went on to play another season in the NFL with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and went on to retire for a second time – this time for good!
When he came out of retirement, media reports suggested that wife Bündchen wasn’t very happy with his decision and their marriage started to fall apart. Brady and Bündchen who met at 29 and 26 years old decided to file for divorce in October 2022. The media attacked Bündchen claiming that she decided to end the marriage because Brady decided to come out of retirement and play American football again!
Bündchen Denies Football Was Reason For Divorce
Bündchen recently opened up on her personal life in a recent issue of Vanity Fair and said it was very hurtful to see the media put out a false narrative and blame her for the divorce and claim she did so because Brady came out of retirement.
Bündchen said that a marriage does not fall apart because of just one decision and claimed that the two of them started growing apart as time went by and they realized that they wanted different things in life.
Bündchen says that she wishes her ex-husband Tom Brady nothing but the best and all the success in the world as he deserves it. Tom Brady is yet to make any comment on Bündchen’s comments in Vanity Fair.
