Model Gisele Bundchen has finally opened up about her divorce from NFL star Tom Brady, describing the split as “the death of her dream” — while slamming rumors that she gave the professional football player an ultimatum that forced him to choose their relationship over his sports career.
Talking to Vanity Fair In an interview accompanying a stunning cover shoot for the magazine’s April issue, Gisele, 42, called the speculation surrounding her split from Tom, 45, “very painful,” while insisting she “never wanted all of his dreams to come true.”

While she vehemently denied that her divorce had anything to do with Tom’s decision to retire from the NFL, Gisele — who added that the split was “like death and rebirth” — said the reason they separated after 13 years of marriage was more innocent, as she claimed that the couple simply “diverged” and realized they wanted “different things”.

The 42-year-old – who has two children with her ex-husband – described the split from Tom, 45, as “the death of her dream.”
“Sometimes you grow together; sometimes you grow apart. When I was 26 and he was 29, we met, we wanted a family, we wanted things together.
“As time goes by, we realize we just wanted different things, and now we have a choice to make. It doesn’t mean you don’t like the person. It just means that in order to be authentic and live the life you truly want to live, you have to have someone who can meet you in the middle, Isn’t it? It’s a dance. It’s a balance.
The model — whose career has seen a huge resurgence since her split from Tom — has also forcefully shut down any suggestion that she’s “against football,” saying she “loves” watching her ex-husband on the field.
Tom and Gisele finalized their divorce on October 28 of last year, and called it time for their marriage with a gushing public announcement shared on social media.
“In recent days, my wife and I have finalized our divorce from each other after 13 years of marriage,” the NFL star wrote. We came to this decision amicably and with gratitude for the time we had together.

Walkways, onyx guardstones, and a statue of the Hindu god Ganesha.
She also vehemently denied speculation that her marriage to Tom was over because she gave him an ultimatum that forced him to choose between their relationship and his NFL career.
Since her divorce, Gisele has been romantically linked to two men, including her amazing jiu-jitsu instructor Joaquim Valente (seen) — but she insists the couple are not dating
She stopped short of calling herself a “witch”, but insisted that she simply “loves astrology, loves crystals…and believes in the power of nature”.
Since the split, Gisele has been linked to two men — first her jiu-jitsu instructor Joaquim Valente and then billionaire ex-Ellie MacPherson husband Jeffrey Soffer — but she insists she’s not dating either person.
“I think, at this point, unfortunately, because I’m divorced,” she said, “I’m sure they’re going to try to entice me into anything.”
Giselle, however, was full of praise for Joachim, who trained her and her children in the art of jiu-jitsu and was regularly seen spending time with the fashion star and her children during their frequent trips to his native Costa Rica.
Speaking of Joaquim and his two older brothers – who together run a jiujitsu training center – the model said: ‘They are amazing people. They have created this safe space.
“I am so grateful to know them all, because not only have they helped me and my children, but they have become great friends, Joakim in particular.”
Instead of romance, Gisele says she’s focused her full attention on two major aspects of her life: her role as a mother to the two children she shares with Tom — Benjamin, 13, and Vivienne, 10 — while also reigniting her modeling career. She was suspended for many years while she supported her husband’s soccer dreams.

While married to Tom, Gisele stepped back from her high-profile career, left New York and moved to Boston, then Tampa, where her then-husband played for the Patriots and Pirates, respectively.
However, while Gisele’s career has been put in shambles while her husband has picked up several Super Bowl titles, she insists she wasn’t embittered by her role as wife and mother – saying she actually enjoyed the opportunity to focus on her kids full-time.
“Do you know how grateful I am to have this time to myself?” I told the post. I breastfed my children until they were about two years old. I took them to school every day. I was making breakfast and lunch for them… There I was.
Gisele clearly has her own goals for the future, stating that she has “her own dreams” and wants to show her children that it’s important in life to “find true fulfillment.”
Speaking of her kids, model Jack, 15, has son Tom with ex-model Bridget Moynahan – who revealed to the soccer star that she was pregnant while he and Gisele were in the early months of their romance.
Although she described the moment as “a difficult situation for all of us”, Gisele said she always felt “blessed” to have Jack in her life, adding that his birth in 2007 “wakened me up with this desire to be a mother”.

Giselle says her goal with Bridget and Jack has always been to make sure she was “the most helpful” when it comes to taking the pressure off the new mom, saying she’s determined they all work together so Jack can have the best life.
Details of Gisele and Tom’s divorce arrangement have not been made public, particularly details regarding the split of their combined $700 million fortune — but it is understood that the couple share custody of their two children, who have both been staying with their mother in Costa Rica for the past few weeks.
