AceShowbiz - Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen's rumored marital woes had apparently already occurred when he took temporary leave during Tampa Bay Buccaneers training in August. If a new report is to be believed, the NFL star left his wife to visit his son with ex Bridget Moynahan.
Daily Mail reported on Wednesday, September 21 that the seven-time champion spent part of his abrupt 11-day break from training visiting his son Jack from his previous relationship in the Hamptons. The quarterback met up with Jack in New York's billionaires' playground to celebrate his 15th birthday after spending most of his time off in The Bahamas with Gisele.
While Gisele was no show during Tom's Hamptons visit, his two children with her, 12-year-old Benjamin Rein and 9-year-old Vivian Lake were there. Bridget was in the area too, meaning the footballer was trying to see all of his blended family during the vacation.
Tom's trip to see Jack adds fresh insight into his movements during the 11-day break which teammates describe at the time as him dealing with "some personal things." On August 11, Buccaneers head coach Todd Bowles announced, "Tom has been excused today. He'll be taking... he'll be back somewhere around after Tennessee. He's going to deal with some personal things."
Then in an interview with the press on August 27, Tom offered details on his 11-day leave. "It's all personal," he said of the reason for his absence. "You know, everyone has got different situations they're dealing with so we all have really unique challenges to our lives. You know. I'm 45 years old, man. There's a lot of s**t going on. So you've just got to try to figure out life the best you can. You know, it's a continuous process."
As for now, Tom and Gisele are reportedly no longer living together amid alleged serious marital issues which stemmed from his decision to return to the NFL. Though so, a source recently revealed that Tom wants to "reconcile."
"Gisele has left Tom in the past during arguments but always returned once things cooled down. They are talking, but mostly about the kids at the moment. But Tom hopes they will reconcile," a source told Page Six earlier this week.
The insider also added that Tom hopes Gisele could attend his team's home opener. "Gisele mostly only attends home games. Tom and his team are hopeful she will be back in the family box with their kids for the Packers game this Sunday," stated the informant.
Unfortunately, the "serious disagreement" between the couple apparently affected Tom and how he performs in the field. During the Sunday, September 18 game against the New Orleans Saints, the athlete was caught throwing an iPad in frustration.
Addressing the moment that has since gone viral on social media, Tom said, "Sorry for breaking that tablet." He added in a video he shared on his social media platforms, "I think that's going to be another Twitter meme or something like that."
