Tom Brady’s decision to return to the NFL is reportedly causing some family issues for he and his wife Gisele Bundchen.
Now we know Tom Brady probably wishes his mysterious absence from Tampa Bay Buccaneers training camp was for The Masked Singer. Apparently, there’s been more than meets the eye with Brady, particularly as it relates to his family life, when it comes to his return from a short-lived retirement.
According to Page Six sources, Tom Brady and his wife Gisele Bundchen are in a fight surrounding his decision to return to the NFL.
"“Tom and Gisele are in a fight right now,” a source tells Page Six, adding that this has happened before with the couple, but they have always reunited in the past."
Over the offseason, Brady briefly retired and quickly redacted his decision, making the choice to return for at least one more NFL season and attempt at another Super Bowl.

Let’s look at this from the lens of humanity, shall we? I, and I’m sure everyone else reading this, can relate to a situation where you’ve made a choice that another family member disagreed with that started a fight.
Doesn’t feel great, does it? And it sure doesn’t feel great when it starts to impact your work.
According to the Page Six article, a big sticking point is the fact that Gisele is the one taking after the kids for most of the year when Brady is busy training and playing. Work-life balance can be tough, especially so for professional athletes with busy schedules.
All of this has supposedly been confirmed to Page Six through multiple exclusive and independent sources, but it hasn’t been confirmed by Brady or Gisele, and probably won’t be. PageSix described the incident as unsurprising given the “fiery” nature of their relationship.
Upon his return to camp, Brady said, “I’m 45 years old man, there’s a lot of sh– going on.”
For someone like Brady, the maintenance his body needs at this stage in his career, that training and treatment can be even more intensive and time consuming.
Brady joked some time ago that he might want to play for 50, but that Gisele probably wouldn’t approve.
As a fellow human, I’m hoping for swift resolution for the Brady-Bundchen family.
