To say that Tom Brady has been struggling on the field this year would be an understatement. Most experts point to Brady’s recent divorce as a reason for his demise on the field. Recently, reports have emerged that the star quarterback was given an ultimatum from his supermodel wife regarding his playing career.
According to a source with Us Weekly, “Gisele told Tom either he leaves football to spend time with the family or she is gone for good.” Even though the divorce is likely to be the culprit of Brady’s poor play this year, the ultimatum she gave Brady stemmed from him spending too much time on the field. “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,” the source continued. The decision the couple made to get divorced is likely rooted in the decision Brady made earlier this year to walk back his decision to retire. An inside source said, “Gisele has always been the one with the kids.
They had agreed he would retire to focus on the family, then he changed his mind.” When he made the decision to come out of retirement, he took to twitter to announce the decision saying, “These past two months I’ve realized my place is still on the field and not in the stands.” Obviously unhappy with the decision, Gisele was spotted in public not wearing her wedding ring, which fueled rumors that the couple had moved forward with a divorce.
Once divorce proceedings got underway, reports emerged that things were beginning to get heated between the two. After the pair both lawyered up, sources close to the couple said, “Tom and Gisele are not battling over the kids, they both want joint custody. But it will take time to divide their immense wealth and property all over the world.” The silver lining appears to be the fact that the children aren’t the subject of any bitterness. Hopefully they will be able to begin normal lives whenever their divorce proceedings are finalized.
