Tabloid report alleges Tom Brady-Giselse marriage has turned into ‘A House Divided’
A report in the July 28 issue of Star Magazine alleges that behind the public facade of a happy marriage, the home life of Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen is in total disarray and that most of the dysfunction stems from the allegation that Gisele is “supercontrolling” and rules the house with an iron fist.
The report alleges that the 34-year-old supermodel is prone to throwing an “insane tantrum” when things don’t go her way and that she makes the New England Patriots quarterback, 36, wake up early and take care the kids. He also is responsible for menial domestic tasks such as cleaning toilets, scrubbing floors and and any other assigned housekeeping chores assigned by Gisele while she sleeps in.
The allegations stem from the reports of so-called “insiders” and that the environment of Brady’s home life is nothing more than an exercise in utter emasculation.
Not only does Gisele allegedly control Brady’s day-to-day responsibilities in the home, she has the final say on how their homes are decorated and makes the ultimate declaration regarding how their two children, Benjamin, 4, and Vivian, 19 months, are raised.
Bunchen allegedly feels that since she was the one who gave birth to the children that her child-rearing responsibilities are done.
But arguably the most degrading aspect of the juice rumors is how Brady is assigned chores by his wife.
“They have housekeepers,” a friend tells Star, “but Gisele won’t let them do anything. She makes Tom get up at 6 a.m. with the children and then has him scrub the toilets and clean the floors while she sleeps in. She thinks that because she gave birth, her work is done.”
Not only that, the supermodel is prone to flipping out when things aren’t done exactly as she dictated.
“She throws an insane tantrum when things don’t go her way,” a source says.
Geez, given his supposed miserable home life, it’s no wonder Brady seeks solace in frozen margaritas, something he referred to once as his guilty pleasure. “Oh my God,” Brady said about the cocktail.
One particular rumored instance involved how Bundchen reacted when Brady didn’t complete his so-called chores list in its entirety.
“One time, Tom didn’t do one of the chores on his list, and she berated him — even telling him that he’s a terrible role model for their children,” the source alleges. “But instead of doing what she wanted, he just took the kids and left the house. Gisele was shocked.”
The rumors of “A House Divided” may have reached its tipping point when Bundchen forced the family to move back from the mega-mansion in California — that boasts a moat, of all things — after the couple spent millions upon millions of dollars renovating the estate to her liking. The home was ultimately sold for $40 million, well below the asking price, to Dr. Dre in June.
Bundchen allegedly elected to have the family move back to Boston for a “quieter environment” that would make for “a quieter environment in order to keeps tabs on her hubby,” the report states.
Rumors indicate that the move back East may have been the last straw and that Brady may be working on an exit strategy in order to get out from under Gisele’s tyrannical thumb.
