September 8

Tom Brady and his wife, Gisele Bündchen, aren’t seeing eye to eye in wake of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback’s decision to unretire and return for a 23rd NFL season.

Page Six reported such last week, when Bündchen left their home in Tampa and went to Costa Rica, and followed up Tuesday by reporting the couple still isn’t back together despite Brady hoping they can reconcile.

“The source added that reports they are currently divorcing are ‘not true,’ ” Page Six’s Emily Smith wrote. “Although other insiders say the couple could be headed in that direction.” added extra fuel to the fire Wednesday by confirming the marital spat and shedding more light on the situation.

“There’s a lot of tension,” a source told “(Bündchen) was so happy when he announced his retirement, and she wasn’t thrilled at all when he went back on that.

“They’re hitting a rough patch,” the insider continued, per “But I know they’re trying, or at least he’s trying, to figure it out and make it work. He wants to get through this and for things to get better.”
