Lessons from Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen – How to Tackle Your Divorce outside of the Courtroom


In October 2022, NFL quarterback Tom Brady and supermodel Gisele Bündchen, his wife, made an announcement to the world: “In recent days, my wife and I have finalized our divorce from one another after 13 years of marriage,” Tom shared on his Instagram account, with Gisele’s statement echoing back: “With much gratitude for our time together, Tom and I have amicably finalized our divorce.” Their careful wording made it clear that the divorce settlement was worked out well before the news of their marriage ending was confirmed to the press, meaning that the power couple had pulled off a quick and quiet divorce out of the public eye.
