How Will Their Fortune Be Divided?
Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen have a fabulous fortune to share. According to estimates, they share 733 million dollars, which will be the subject of a division settled by the court with their lawyers.
Although Tom Brady is America's top footballer, with seven SuperBowl titles, his ex-wife, the Brazilian model, three years younger, has earned more money than him.
From contracts and public appearances, Gisele Bundchen is said to have amassed 400 million dollars, while Tom Brady has brought in only 333 million dollars to their joint fortune.
The two have two children together, and the initiative for divorce was taken by Gisele Bundchen, who was unhappy that Tom Brady had neglected his family, returning to work 40 days after announcing his retirement.
