There are problems in the Brady group.

The first NFL footballing couple have been living apart for more than a month, according to reports.

Tampa Bay Bucs quarterback Tom Brady and his supermodel wife Gisele Bundchen are “living separately,” according to People magazine, Yahoo News! and other sites. The supercouple has apparently been in trouble since Brady retired, then “non-retired” from the NFL.

The Super Bowl champion quarterback announced his retirement in January, then announced he would return to the Bucs field in March. Although he showed up for training camp in July, he left in early August for 11 days with an excused absence.

Here’s what we know about the couple and their life in Florida.

Who are Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen?

Married since 2009, Brady, 45, has seven Super Bowl rings, the most touchdown passes and wins, regular season and playoffs, ever by a single player. He is widely regarded as the greatest of all time in football. In 2019, Brady left the New England Patriots on a two-year, $50 million deal to play quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Bundchen, 42, one of the highest paid models in the world, is a Brazilian model, author, environmental activist and former Victoria’s Secret Angel.

Brady and Bundchen moved to Florida in 2020. A year later, Brady won his seventh Super Bowl ring with Tampa Bay.

The couple are parents to their two children, Benjamin and Vivian. Brady also has a son, Jack, with his ex, actress Bridget Moynahan (“Blue Bloods”, “John Wick” film series).

What happened with Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen?

After his initial announcement to retire, Brady said he planned to spend more time with his family. Months later he “has not retired” from professional football, which media reports have caused tension within the couple.

According People magazine, the couple have been apart for “over a month” and have been apart for six weeks, with Brady back in the NFL. “Gisele is busy with her own life now and has been spending time away from Tom in Miami and New York,” said the People magazine article states, with a source adding, “During the season, they live separate lives.”

When Tom Brady left the Patriots, Gisele said: ‘I support you’

In 2019, Brady signed a two-year, $50 million contract with the Bucs, joining a team with the worst winning percentage in league history, according to USA TODAY. Tampa Bay hadn’t made the playoffs since 2007 and hadn’t won a postseason since their lone Super Bowl championship 18 years ago.

On Feb. 2, 2019, Gisele posted a photo of her and Brady on the football field — with Brady wearing his New England Patriots uniform — with the caption, “I got your back! ❤️”

When Brady announced his retirement from the NFL via social media, Bundchen used the same platform to congratulate her husband on his storied career. Posting to his 19 million followers, Bundchen said: “What a ride @tombrady! So many memories! When I met you over 15 years ago I knew nothing about football. But I encourage you and see what you like the most doing introduced me to this wonderful game to the point that I seriously thought I knew more about it than the refs!We always had a special playlist of champions for every ride on the way to the match As a family we have always prayed for you, celebrated and supported you in every game, cheered on every win and suffered in every loss.

I’m so proud of you and everything you’ve had to overcome physically and emotionally over the years. I am in awe of your dedication and all that you have accomplished. You love what you do and you leave behind a legacy that is a great example for future generations.

You are the most dedicated, focused and mentally strong person I have ever met. Over the years, you’ve never complained about all the bruising, aches and pains. You just kept focusing on your goal of going out there and being the best leader there is for all of your teammates.

I know how excited you are about the next chapter of your life. Watching you work so hard in your football career and seeing the dedication you now put into all of your new endeavors is incredibly inspiring. There is nothing you cannot achieve. I’ve always been there for you, you know that, and I’m as excited as you are for what the future holds!

Words can’t quite express how grateful I am to everyone who has been so supportive of my husband and our family for so many years.

With all my love, Gisèle”

Fans say ‘Don’t worry about Tom Brady’

Former Bucs head coach and team consultant Bruce Arians shared his thoughts on Brady’s retirement and non-retirement announcements and his 11-day excused absence during training camp with Jori Epstein, USA TODAY Sports NFL writer.

Said Arians: “It’s about, when you’re 45 and you have a lot, a lot more going on in your life than a 25-year-old man. For Tom…he needed time. It was great for us because we worked with our reserve quarterbacks. He came back, still looking great. The energy in the building went up 100%. I think it was a very good decision for everyone.

Should fans be worried about Tom Brady’s focus or sanity ahead of the 2022 season?

According to the Arians, no. “The thing about Tom Brady – you never have to worry about focus. He’s all in or he wouldn’t be there. He’s all in and laser focused. You can ask the players in the group who get their ass chewed all the time next to him. They all know he’s laser focused and ready to roll. Don’t worry about Tom Brady, that’s for sure.

Brady’s former New England Patriots teammate Devin McCourty echoed Arians

comments on balancing life in the NFL and his life in the spotlight in an interview with USA TODAY Sports reporter Mackenzie Salmon.

“It’s tough,” McCourty said. “Sometimes you don’t think about it.” At 35, McCourty is married with two young children. “For all of us, it’s the big balance. It’s something we all talk about as husbands and fathers, how we take care of our homes and our homework, but also, how can we be the best player for our teammates, for our teams and for us individually?

McCourty then spoke about Brady’s work ethic.

“I know Tom is one of the greatest. I’ve seen his work ethic, what he puts into the game, how much it means to him to not only be able to play for himself, but to show up for his teammates. I’m sure whatever he does, there’s no doubt that he always finds a way to take care of what he needs to take care of football.”

Will Tom Brady retire in 2023?

In another Sports Seriously podcast, host the Mackenzie salmon asked Pro Football Hall of Famer Dan Marino to talk about Brady’s state of mind and the 2022 season.

“The thing is, if you still have that, if you’re a great player, in your heart, you never know if you want to retire or if you have to retire.

“If you still have that urge to play, you should take every opportunity to play because once you’re done, that’s it. It’s over. He’ll probably play this year and take another shot at it. eye when the year is over.”
