Tom Brady is telling his side of the story.
The Tampa Bay Bucs QB and Gisele Bunchen’s divorce was announced last week after months of speculation. The uber successful power couple released individual statements about the demise of their union, which ended after 13 years of marriage. Both the superstar QB and the Supermodel made it clear that they are going to do everything they can to work together for the sake of their children.
Tom Brady spoke publicly about the divorce for the first time on his weekly podcast, admitting that the split was “very amicable.” “I think there’s a lot of professionals in life that go through things that they deal with at work and they deal with at home,” the 45-year old quarterback said.
“Obviously the good news is it’s a very amicable situation and I’m really focused on two things, taking care of my family and certainly my children and, secondly, doing the best job I can to win football games.” While his home and family are his top priorities, Tom says its important to have a professional life too. “That’s what professionals do. You focus at work when it’s time to work, and then when you come home you focus on the priorities that are at home. All you can do is the best you could do. That’s what I’ll just continue to do as long as I’m working and as long as I’m being a dad.”
When asked by cohost Jim Gray, “Is there a challenge compartmentalizing between the two?” Brady replied, “I’ve dealt with a lot of challenging situations on and off the field over 23 years, and a lot of it does play out in front of a lot of people. I always say we’re not actors. Even though we’re on TV, you know, that is our real self out there. We’re trying to do our best. That’s how people really have gotten to know me over the years, by being on TV.”
Tom Brady announced he’d be retiring from Football only eight months ago. But we know how that panned out. A few weeks later, he recanted his decision and made his return to the field.
Now he’ll be single and on the hunt for a new Mrs. Brady. Exciting times.
