Tom Brady was seen without his wedding ring as he left his hotel before the Tampa Bay Buccaneers game on Sunday night in Pennsylvania. The 45-year-old quarterback wore a white jersey under a light blue shirt paired with dark blue pants and white sneakers.
His choice to leave that important piece of jewelry at home comes as divorce rumors continue to swirl around him and wife Gisele Bündchen. Brady’s unwillingness to step away from football appears to be the main cause of his alleged split from the model.
Fans mocked the NFL star’s decision to stick with the sport, and its correlation to the state of his marriage, after the Bucs’ loss this week to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
In a now-viral video, an angry Brady is seen sharing a heated word with the team’s offensive line, presumably yelling in his teammates’ faces.
“Tom Brady really got divorced just to lose to the Steelers,” one person joked, while another opined, “Tom Brady doesn’t make fun of anything but football, not his wife, not his kids, not his teammates. of team”.
He was also seen alone on Friday night in New York City attending Patriots owner Robert Kraft’s surprise wedding to Dana Blumberg.
Page Six exclusively reported this month that both Brady and Bündchen, 42, who have been living apart, have hired divorce attorneys. Sources first shared in September that the pair had an “epic” fight over Brady coming out of retirement.
“There have been problems in the marriage because of his decision to retire. Gisele has always been the one with the kids. They had agreed that she would retire to focus on the family, then she changed her mind,” a source told Page Six in September.
Another source recently told People magazine that the relationship between the athlete and the supermodel is hopeless.
“(Gisele) ended her marriage,” a source told the outlet. “She was upset about it for a long time, and it’s still hard, but she feels like she needs to move on. She doesn’t think her marriage can be repaired.”
Brady and Bündchen share a son, Benjamin, 12, and a daughter, Vivian, 9. The former Patriots player also has a 15-year-old son, Jack, with ex-girlfriend Bridget Moynahan. Bündchen recently admitted that she and her children wanted Tom to be a more present man.
“My kids and I would like (Tom) to be around more,” Bündchen told Elle magazine in September, adding that they “have definitely had those conversations with him over and over again.”
Brady, who has stated that family and football are his top priorities, married Bündchen in 2009.
