New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and Six Degrees actress Bridget Moynahan have broken up, Moynahan's rep confirmed to Us Weekly.
"Bridget Moynahan and Tom Brady amicably ended their three year relationship several weeks ago. We ask for your respect and consideration of their privacy. No further comments will be made."
"They were both very focused on their careers," a source close to Brady said. "She was putting a lot into Six Degrees, he into the Patriots. It was just really hard to make it work."
Moynahan, 36, a former model, is best known for her work in films like Coyote Ugly and I, Robot, and her role playing "Mrs. Big" on the HBO series Sex and the City. Man, Sarah Jessica Parker's character hated her!
The Patriots selected Brady in the sixth round of the 2000 NFL draft. He has helped the team win three Super Bowls, has earned two Super Bowl MVP awards, and has been selected for three Pro Bowls.
In 2005, Sports Illustrated named the quarterback Sportsman of the Year.
This is sad news... even sadder than the rumored split between Britney and Paris. If these two can't make it work, how are any couples expected to last? At least we still have some unions, such as Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe, to look up to. Wait...
