Tom Brady Allegedly in ‘Epic Fight’ With Gisele Bündchen (Someone’s Being a Bad Sport)

It’s becoming clearer why Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady skipped out on 11 days of training last month. Rumor has it he and his wife, former Victoria’s Secret Angel Gisele Bündchen, are having marital troubles related to Brady’s backpedaling on his retirement.

Originally, Brady announced his retirement in February. Less than 40 days later, he reversed his decision.

“These past two months I’ve realized my place is still on the field and not in the stands,” the Super Bowl champ tweeted. “That time will come. But it’s not now. I love my teammates, and I love my supportive family. They make it all possible. I’m coming back for my 23rd season in Tampa. Unfinished business LFG.”

But then he didn’t show for training in August.

“He’s going to deal with some personal things,” Buccaneers head coach Todd Bowles said after excusing Brady from practice.

When asked later why he wasn’t on the field with his teammates, Brady said in a video released by the team: “It’s all personal. You know everyone’s got different situations they’re dealing with. So, we all have really unique challenges to our life. I’m 45 years old, man. There’s a lot of shit going on. You’ve just got to try to figure out life the best you can. It’s a continuous process.”

It would appear his “supportive family” may have had enough of his commitment to the pigskin. Brady and Bündchen share 14-year-old Benjamin and 9-year-old Vivian. They also co-parent 15-year-old Jack, the footballer’s son with ex Bridget Moynahan.

Bündchen was apparently looking forward to the family time Brady’s retirement would afford them. Now, Page Six has reported that after a “series of heated arguments” at the couple’s Tampa, Florida estate, the model took off for Costa Rica alone.

It just goes to show you that money can’t buy happiness…or work-life balance. Will Brady be forced to choose between family and football? Sports fans will be waiting to find out…
