Tom Brady has been going through it as of late in the aftermath of his divorce from Gisele Bundchen. The two had been together for over two decades, and they had multiple children together. However, they ultimately grew apart and got divorced in the middle of the season. Overall, it was a shocking development that took its toll on the field. Brady was not the same player he has been in the past, and many blamed it on his separation.

Recently, Gisele spoke to Vanity Fair about the divorce. There had been plenty of rumors floating around concerning why Bundchen left the NFL legend. Mostly, fans assumed it was because he went back on his promise to retire from the league. Although, Gisele contested this idea, saying it was because they simply didn't want the same things anymore. “When you love someone, you don’t put them in a jail and say, ‘You have to live this life,'” Gisele said. “You set them free to be who they are, and if you want to fly the same direction, then that’s amazing. We’re not playing against each other. We are a team … and that’s beautiful. I look back and I have no regrets. I loved every bit of it.”

Tom Brady Gets Philosophical

According to Page Six, Tom Brady seemingly had a response to Gisele's interview. While taking to his Instagram story, he posted a quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson. The quote is about what success truly is. What makes this quote so interesting, however, is the reference to "False Friends." “What is success? To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends,” the quote reads.

Ultimately, no one truly knows what Brady was trying to say here. He has been fairly cryptic on social media as of late, which is a common theme among divorced men. Either way, he is Tom Brady which means he can do whatever he wants. He should just go out and enjoy being single. Based on Gisele's trips to Costa Rica, it's clear that that's what she is doing.
