So sad! Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen are reportedly heading for a $460 million divorce, and HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned that ‘Deflate-Gate’ caused a huge strain on their marriage. Get the details here.
Deflate-Gate put a strain on Tom Brady’s, 38, NFL career and also his relationship with his supermodel wife, Gisele Bundchen, 35. After an Aug. 12 report claimed that the famous couple were in the midst of a $460 million divorce battle, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned that there was a lot of stress in their marriage surrounding the Deflate-Gate controversy — and there still is.
Tom and Gisele have reportedly been keeping their relationship drama behind closed doors, and Deflate-Gate had a major impact. Things have been worse for the couple following the controversy surrounding the scandal, where Tom was accused of deflating footballs for the New England Patriots‘ own gain during the NFL championship. “This football season is especially stressful because of Deflate-Gate. Tom is really upset about everything that has gone down and it can’t help but put a strain on their marriage,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
This is so sad to hear. The NFL recently ruled that Tom must serve his 4-game suspension for his role in the scandal, after he deliberately destroyed potential evidence in the case. He appealed the ruling for nearly 11 hours in June but to no avail. However, HollywoodLife.com told you that Tom isn’t giving up just yet, and he’s planning to keep the NFL in court as long as possible. We can imagine this grueling battle sure puts a damper on things with Gisele.

Everything seemed like it was more than just fine between Tom and Gisele when she wished him a happy birthday on Instagram on Aug. 3. However, a report from OK! Magazine claims that a huge fight exploded after she posted the pic.
They had been “fighting every other day for weeks,” the source said, revealing that they could barely keep it together for Tom’s birthday dinner. “As soon as they got home, it all came to a head. They started bickering,” the insider told the mag. Yikes. We really hope that Tom and Gisele can work things out!
