Is the marriage between Tom Brady and wife Gisele Bundchen in trouble? That’s what one tabloid would like to have you believe.

In a story published Monday called “Gisele & Tom: A House Divided!”, Star alleges that Gisele is controlling of Tom’s home life and that he is getting fed up.

Quoting from the article:

According to insiders, Gisele, 34, is supercontrolling with Tom and has final say on everything from how their home is decorated to exactly how and where their children, Benjamin, 4, and Vivian, 19 months, are raised.

The story alleges that despite having tons of housekeepers, Gisele has a list of chores for her husband to complete such as waking up early to clean floors and toilets. They say Tom is getting sick of doing things Gisele’s way.

In the past, Tom, 36, went along with Gisele’s demands in order to keep the peace, but pals insist he’s finally starting to stand his ground. “She throws an insane tantrum when things don’t go her way,” says the source.

“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. But instead of doing what she wanted, he just took the kids and left the house. Gisele was shocked.”

The story also says that a “final straw” was Gisele deciding she didn’t want to live in the LA mansion they built, and instead preferred a quieter environment. You may recall that the couple began construction on the Brentwood mansion back in 2010 after purchasing the plot of land for over $11 million. The entire construction cost was estimated to be around $20 million and the project supposedly took about four years to complete. It’s unclear whether the family ever lived in the mansion, but they listed it this year and sold it to Dr. Dre. They’re now building a huge complex in Brookline, Mass. instead.

And how’s this for a kicker? Star concluded its story with a quote from a friend who says they wouldn’t be surprised if Tom decided he could no longer take the married life.

“She rules Tom’s life,” continues the friend. “Nobody would be surprised if he threw in the towel soon.”

Eh, I think everyone on the outside world would be surprised if that happened. But if they are having problems, nobody should be surprised. First off, all marriages have their problems. Secondly, few things are as perfect as they seem on the outside.

While I can picture Gisele as a controlling type, I just can’t imagine Tom scrubbing toilets around his house. No way that’s possible, right?

  • Dear Unhappy Husband:
    Hard for me to picture you mopping floors and cleaning toilets. Giselle is not all that. After the sex gets old you have to deal with the personality. Show her the door and keep the kids.

  • I don't believe one word of it
  • Have you not seen her temper following football games in which the Pats didn't fare so well? This does not surprise me.
  • I would straighten her out real quick. :)
  • Not buying one word of this. The tabloids have been known to stretch the truth about stars for years so why should brady and his wife be an exception.
  • Yeah but the tabs have often been right, even if it's a partial truth. Most of this likely comes from bribing and interviewing their household staff. That's the best place to get emerging dirt. She looks like a PITA.
  • I believe it. She looks like the type of person described in the article. She looks like if she does not get her way, look out. She looks like she definitely wears the pants in the family. I wondered why after putting all that money into that place in L.A. and waiting 4 years why would someone turn around and sell it.
  • Yellow journalists are always waiting impatiently for existing relationships to fail or people dating to announce an engagement. Give it a rest.
  • Finally!!! I knew marrying that "woman" was a huge mistake. Maybe now he can get back to what he really loves, FOOTBALL

Grade Day: Taking another look at the New England Patriots 2014 draft
