Gisele Bündchen showed social media support for Tom Brady’s first game of the NFL season —but reportedly did not attend the match.
“Let’s go @TomBrady ! Let’s go Bucs ! ✨✨✨” the model, 42, tweeted on Sunday ahead of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers beating the Dallas Cowboys by 16 points.
The former Victoria’s Secret Angel did not attend her husband’s season opener at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, according to People.
“It’s always a big thing when Gisele is coming to watch the game,” a source told the outlet over the weekend.
“As of right now, there’s none of that for Sunday’s game,” the insider continued. “It feels very different this year than last year. … Nothing is in place for her to be here for the first regular season game and that seems weird.”
Page Six broke the news in September that Bündchen and the athlete, 45, are in the middle of an “epic fight” over Brady coming out of his short-lived retirement for a 23rd season of football.
“Gisele has always been the one with the kids,” a source told us earlier this month. “They had agreed he would retire to focus on the family, then he changed his mind.”
Brady previously alluded to tension in August when asked about his 11-day break from training camp.
“It’s all personal, you know. Everyone’s got different situations that they’re dealing with,” the seven-time Super Bowl champion told press last month. “We all have really unique challenges to our life.”
“Where does the time go?” Maddie’s grandma Lynne Spears asked…
Brady added that he had “a lot of s–t going on,” concluding, “[You’ve] just gotta figure out life the best you can. It’s a continuous process.”
He and Bündchen have been married since February 2009 and share son Benjamin, 12, and daughter Vivian, 9. (The quarterback is also the father of son Jack, 15, with his ex Bridget Moynahan.)
Bündchen wished her partner a happy birthday via Instagram in August, calling Brady one of the “most focused, disciplined and fashionable” people she knows.
“You are so loved and we are always here cheering for you and wishing you all the most wonderful things in life! ❤️” the Sejaa Pure Skincare creator captioned a photo of Benjamin and Vivian hugging their dad.
Brady is focusing on being a “super dad” to his little ones amid his marital woes, another source told Page Six, calling the NFL player “very sad.”
