Well, it turns out Tom Brady was not on the Masked Singer show. However, many expected that there was trouble in paradise. And sure enough, confirmed. Gisele was unhappy with Tom’s decision to unretire. And rightfully so.
Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen are an iconic couple. Many people adore their fairy tale marriage. However, every rose has its thorn. Marriages are not perfect. Arguments and disagreements will happen. Surely, they are no different and have had their fair share over the years. But, most importantly, they resolved their differences and kept their love intact. Unfortunately, this time it seems to be the “most unkindest cut of all.”
Tom and Gisele’s Argument
According to many primary news sources, Gisele was angry with Tom’s decision to return to the NFL for the 2022 season. Brady retired in February, and after 40 days, he unretired to return for one last gridiron run, so he says.
Gisele was very upset and disappointed with Tom’s decision to unretire himself without discussion. Disheartened and melancholic, she traveled to Costa Rica to get away to let the dust settle, leaving Tom to his football and the kids. Gisele believes in never discussing anything when you are upset, sad, angry, or frustrated because you don’t think rationally. And once you say something, it is hard to take it back.
In May, Gisele told British Vogue that she believes relationships don’t just happen. She said that it is a part of a fairy tale that people don’t want to see or believe behind the scenes. However, Gisele sincerely said that relationships take work. And for it to work, you really need to be in sync with someone. And after you have kids, your synchronization and what you had at the beginning of your relationship all change.
Now that the truth is out, you can see ego has trumped pride and commitment. The argument leaves a lot for Tom to consider, choosing football or his family. Gisele had expressed many times in the past that Tom is more focused on his career. And that she is focused on the family and the kids. Gisele is not complaining, but it does sound unfair and stereotypical of Tom. It is definitely not about money, considering Gisele’s net worth is $400 million, and Tom’s is $250 million.
Many people say Gisele has a hot Brazilian temper and is jealous of Tom’s stardom. I highly doubt that. Brazilians put family first. Family is most important in their culture and has deeply rooted values. And the fact that Tom has ignored their agreement to be more around the family is probably chipping away at Gisele. Moreover, it sounds like they had a pact to cut back on work and be more family-focused.
Nevertheless, Gisele decided to keep working since Tom would keep playing. She just signed a contract to start a new campaign with Burberry.
Now Tom Brady’s absence for 11 days has been explained. Following his return, Tom said: “It’s all personal. Everyone has got different situations they’re dealing with. We all have real, unique challenges in our life. I’m 45 years old, man. There’s a lot of s**t going on.”
However, the issue of Tom not putting in fatherly time seems to go back some years. In 2020, on the Howard Stern show, Tom admitted that Gisele didn’t feel like he was doing his part for the family. He said that she felt like she would take care of the house while he was out playing football. This caused her to be dissatisfied with him and their marriage.
Brady has been playing football for over 20 years. He is now 45 years old. He has admitted that he needs to be more balanced between football and family. He said his kids are older now, and their lives are changing.
However, the fact that he put ego first and unretired without discussion is like a dagger in the back and the heart, stabbed by betrayal and sadness.
I hope Tom can make it through a successful season unscathed. And that he does not sacrifice winning a flashy superficial ring, which he has many, for a classic one that symbolizes more important moments and love in his life.
Oh, Tomfoolery, you have done so well. Your wife and family need and miss you now.
