Gisele Bundchen and New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady are reportedly headed for a split. Is there any truth to this rumor?
In light of it, Bundchen and Brady are staying very quiet. Neither party has uttered a word since this first hit the media.
"A report has surfaced, alleging that [Brady] and Gisele could be headed towards a divorce," a source tells Entertainment Tonight. "We're hearing that they're bickering non-stop lately. And really the drama kind of reached a head at Tom's birthday dinner. Allegedly, Gisele stormed out she was so angry."

The couple--and their kids--seemed happy together as recently as August 3, when Gisele Bundchen shared via her Facebook page a photo of the family enjoying a getaway and celebrating Tom Brady's birthday.

Could things have gone downhill so quickly?
The rumor probably stems from some issues that Ben Affleck is presently facing. Separated from Jennifer Garner, he is rumored to have had--or is still having--an affair with former nanny Christine Ouzounian. Christine was recently seen in a photo wearing Tom Brady's Super Bowl rings. Tom Brady and Ben Affleck are good friends, but none of this pertains to Tom's relationship with Gisele Bundchen.

Tom Brady is up to his eyeballs with the current "Deflategate" saga. Gisele Bundchen no doubt has his back. The two likely aren't saying a word about these split rumors, because they're not true.
So far the media hasn't drummed up anything concrete to point to a Tom Brady/Gisele Bundchen split.
This is one rumor that will probably dissipate with time.
What's your take on the purported Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen split?
