It's up from here. Tom Brady broke his silence about his marriage troubles with his wife, Gisele Bundchen, in a new interview with Boston radio station WEEI on Tuesday, Sept. 8.
“We’re in a great place," the New England Patriots quarterback, 38, told Dennis & Callahan during his weekly call. "I’ll just say that."
In fact, the Super Bowl MVP — who recently came out victorious from his Deflategate scandal — was thankful for his wife's support during one of the hardest times of his career.
"I’m a lucky man. I’ve been very blessed with support from my family and certainly her," he told WEEI. "There’s no bigger supporter than I have than her and vise versa. I’ve been very blessed to have an incredible relationship with my life partner. I don’t think anything would ever get in the way of that."
Us Weekly reported last month that Brady and Bundchen were dealing with their fair share of marital woes after the Deflategate scandal rocked the NFL this spring. At the time, Brady faced a four-game suspension when a preliminary investigative report found that the star QB was "at least generally aware" of Pats staffers deflating footballs before the AFC Championship game.
“Tom’s become very nasty and irritable and started acting out on her,” one source previously told Us of Brady and Bundchen. Meanwhile, the stars didn't celebrate their birthdays together this past summer.
Last Thursday, Sept. 3, a federal judge tossed Brady's four-game suspension, making the athlete eligible to play in the Patriots' opening game against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sept. 10. Bundchen also accompanied her husband to court before the decision was made.
This past weekend, the supermodel posted a pic of her husband playing with their 2-year-old daughter, Vivian. "And my heart melts," Bundchen wrote, alongside the sweet outdoor snap. "…#biggestlove #family."
