NFL legend Tom Brady still hasn’t reconciled with his wife Gisele Bundchen after she returned home from a furious solo trip from Costa Rica sparked by his decision to return to football.
The 42-year-old supermodel and the seven-time Super Bowl champion, 45, have failed to mend their troubled relationship and “could be headed for divorce,” insiders have revealed.
Gisele, mother of two, traveled to Costa Rica in early September after a heated argument with her husband, to whom she has been married since 2009.
She spent time at her home in Central America after reports emerged that the duo had been fighting over Brady’s sensational decision to return to the NFL after a brief retirement.
Tom agreed to retire from the sport to spend more time with his family, but then reversed the decision – which allegedly caused friction with his wife, insiders claim.
But despite their split, the celebrity couple’s marriage is still in the balance and Gisele has reportedly not returned to her home in Tampa, Fla. – after she was spotted with her kids at a water park over the weekend.

A source close to the couple told Page Six: “Gisele is not back with Tom. She flew back to Florida to be with her kids but wasn’t at her home in Tampa.
“Tom still hopes they can reconcile. Gisele has told him she’s leaving him before and they’ve always made up when she’s cooled off.”
Brazilian Gisele and the legendary quarterback, who wed in 2009, share Vivian Lake, 9, and Benjamin, 12, while Tom also has a 14-year-old son named John Edward with ex Bridget Moynahan.
Just weeks ago, after Brady’s preseason game with the Buccaneers, he alluded to his potential family troubles, telling a news conference that “there’s a lot of shit going on.”
He said: “Everyone has different situations that they deal with and we all have unique challenges in our lives.
“I’m 45 years old, man. There’s a lot of shit going on, so you just have to try to understand life as best you can. You know, it’s an ongoing process.”
Brady last posted about his wife’s “inspiring honesty and authenticity” in a loving birthday post for the supermodel on July 20. And she returned the favor, celebrating his birthday on August 3 with an adorable snap of the father with two of his children.
The stunning couple were last seen in public in June – holding hands of each other as they walked past the Dolce & Gabbana gallery in Portofino, Italy.
Gisele looked very summery in a navy blue shirt and white trousers, with striped shoes and carried her essentials in a blue handbag.

On Monday of this week, the football legend also made another illusion about the ups and downs in his relationship, telling his podcast: “You always have moments… I don’t think life is always the ultimate joy, I don’t think that Life is always the ultimate pain, I don’t believe that life is always the ultimate struggle, I don’t believe that life is always the ultimate happiness.
‘Your life ebbs and flows through the clouds and through the sun and through the rain and through the beautiful days and you cherish the moments and you find joy in the little things.’
This comes after Gisele revealed why raising children Tom isn’t the “fairy tale” most people imagine.
During a candid interview with British Vogue, the supermodel explained that “it takes work to really be in sync with someone, especially after you have kids.”

“His focus is on his career, mine is mostly on the kids,” she explained. “And I’m very grateful that he’s letting me take the reins when it comes to our family. He trusts my decisions.’
The Brazilian beauty went on to explain that successful relationships “don’t just happen” and recalled times when they didn’t always see eye to eye.
And in her new memoir, Lessons: My Path To A Meaningful Life, the author describes how parenting has damaged her marriage, as he exercises up to 12 hours a day.
“If someone you love is happy, it makes you happy, or if they are sad, it makes you sad. You suffer with them and rejoice with them,” she wrote in her book.
Tom was selected by the New England Patriots during the 2000 NFL Draft. He remained with the team until March 2020 when he signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
He announced his retirement from the NFL earlier this year, but shockedly reversed his decision six weeks later and announced he would be returning to the Buccaneers.

True feelings: “If it were up to my wife, she would retire me today,” he admitted at the time. “She told me that three times last night. And I said, “Too bad baby, I’m having too much fun right now.”
