The couple’s marriage appears to be imploding more and more by the second.
The Blast reported on Wednesday that the NFL QB has rubbed more salt into the “un-retirement” wound by picking up another major league sport.

More on that in a bit.
The un-retirement news really shook not only Gisele, but their friend group as well.
A source told Us Weekly, “Gisele and Tom’s friends are upset at Tom for going back on his word and coming out of retirement. They hate the way Tom is refusing to bend for Gisele.”
And speaking of refusing to bend… Brady announced he’s joining Major League Pickleball, because it will allow him to play sports well into his 50s, 60s, and 70s.
Tom & Gisele’s Friends Are Upset At Tom
So, it looks like his commitment to sports will always be his top priority and his family will just have to come second.
Both the supermodel and NFL MVP have hired divorce lawyers in preparation for a divorce.
Their friends are still hopeful they could reconcile with a source telling the outlet, “This was really the first big issue they’ve had in their marriage. Friends are hoping they aren’t past the point of no return.”
Only Brady and Gisele know which point they’re at, but the former Victoria’s Secret model hinted at the reason for her decision.
Gisele Hints At Reason For Marital Issues
She recently commented on an Instagram post by Jay Shetty.
The post read, “You can’t be in a committed relationship with someone who is inconsistent with you. Read that again.”

Gisele commented on the post with a simple prayer hands emoji.
Her comment may be simple, but it says A LOT!
Gisele was the first to make a move to hire a divorce lawyer and this reportedly hit Brady where it hurt.
“He feels very hurt by her. She is the one steering the divorce. She is playing offense and he is playing defense. He wants to protect himself, protect his interests, but he’s only starting to go the legal route in his defense from her. He doesn’t want this to be ugly, he doesn’t want to fight. If the divorce is happening — and it seems like it is — he wants it to go as smoothly as possible.”
Another source added that Brady’s marital woes are weighing heavily on him as he has never been one to face difficult issues in his life.
“Think about it: Tom has had a very charmed life. Things always seem to go his way. He works hard, he’s a good guy, he hasn’t had a lot of things go wrong in his life. This is awful for him. You can tell that this really, really hurts,” the source expounded on the matter.
Brady and Gisele’s marital troubles date back to late August when the star athlete missed 11 days of pre-season practice due to “personal reasons.”
Shortly after, news broke that the “Taxi” actress left their Tampa Bay home in anger, and ever since, things haven’t been the same.
Per reports, the estranged couple, who was married for over 13 years, no longer live together, with Bündchen even refusing to bunk with the father of her kids during Hurricane Ian. She also hasn’t attended any of his games since the 23rd season of the NFL began in September.
