Gisele Bundchen’s 2016 Salary Dwarfs Tom Brady’s By More Than You’d Expect

1,610

Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady both know what it’s like to be at the peak of their respective games, but only one holds top status when it comes to income in their household.

Bundchen earned an estimated $30.5 million in the last year, USA Today reported Wednesday, citing Forbes’ annual list of highest-paid models. The Brazilian supermodel’s base salary this year is $16.5 million more than what the New England Patriots will pay Brady, Bundchen’s husband, this season.

The bulk of Bundchen’s modeling income comes from her contract with Chanel and her own lingerie line.

Brady does supplements his football income with endorsement deals. He made an estimated $6 million in 2015 representing Under Armor, UGG and Tag Heuer, according to Forbes. But he still falls short of Gisele’s totals by a considerable amount. Such is the strength of the modeling business around the world.

And we’re sure the Brady-Bundchen family has no problem with that dynamic or their $50 million-plus in combined earnings.
