Gisele Bündchen breaks silence on divorce: “It’s like a death and a rebirth”

Months after their divorce news broke, model Gisele Bündchen is breaking her silence on her marriage to the now-retired NFL quarterback Tom Brady. The revealing interview was published by Vanity Fair on Wednesday.

Bündchen told the magazine, “it’s like a death and a rebirth” and she was now mourning “the death of my dream”.

Before tearing up, she said, “It’s hard because you imagine your life was going to be a certain way, and you did everything you could, you know?”

“You give everything you have to achieve your dream,” she told Vanity Fair. “You give 100 percent of yourself, and it’s heartbreaking when it doesn’t end the way you hoped and worked for, but you can only do your part.”

Both ended their 13-year marriage in Octoberwith Brady posting on an Instagram story as they came “to this decision amicably and with gratitude for the time we had together”.

“The decision to end a marriage is never easy, but we have separated and while of course it is difficult to go through something like this, I feel blessed for the time we have spent together and I always wish Tom the best,” she wrote in a separate statement.

Months after the announcement, Bündchen addressed rumors of an alleged ultimatum – choosing between her and football – leading to their split, saying they weren’t true.

“When you love someone, you don’t put them in jail and say, ‘You have to live this life,'” she told the magazine. “You free them to be who they are, and if you want to fly in the same direction, then that’s amazing.”

But after the interview was published, Brady took to Instagram with a seemingly cryptic message. He posted a quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson on the definition of success.

“What is success?” the quote begins. “To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To win the appreciation of honest critics and to endure the betrayal of false friends.”

This quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson was posted on the @TomBrady Instagram account less than a day after Gisele Bündchen’s interview with Vanity Fair was published.


The post goes on to say that success is about finding “the best in others” and leaving the world “a little bit better”.

Bündchen has made it clear that she has no ill will towards Brady.

“If there’s one person I want to be the happiest in the world, it’s him, believe me,” she told the magazine. “I want him to achieve and conquer. I want all his dreams to come true.”

CBS News has reached out to Brady for comment and is awaiting a response.

In November, Brady talked about the divorce on his weekly podcast, saying he and his ex-wife have a “very friendly situation.”

While speaking to his “Let’s Go” co-host and sportscaster Jim Gray about the subject, he explained that a lot of people go through “things that they deal with at work and they deal with at home.”

“Obviously the good news is that it’s a very friendly situation, and I’m really focused on two things: taking care of my family, and certainly my children, and secondly doing my best to win football matches.” , did he declare. . “That’s what the professionals do.”
