Tom Brady is no stranger to scandal.
After all, he plays on a team that's been accused of spying on other teams and illegally deflating footballs, and he dumped Bridget Moynahan while she was pregnant with his first child.
(Hey, the truth hurts Pats fans.)
But lately, Tom Terrific has been in the headlines more than ever, and not because of his bizarre claim that he plans to play in the NFL until he's 45.
A little backstory is needed:
As you've probably heard, Ben Affleck is the latest celebrity to be accused of nanny-banging.
Generally, Poppins poppin' sessions are limited to brief, sweaty encounters in the servants' quarters, but Ben liked to take his employee/side-piece out on the town.
Specifically, they went to Vegas, where Christine Ouzounian was photographed wearing Brady's Super Bowl rings.
The pic raised a lot of questions, chiefly: Why the hell does Tom Brady travel with his Super Bowl rings? and, What does Gisele think of all this?
The answers, it seems, are: "Because he's a D-bag," and, "She ain't happy."
Yes, OK! magazine is claiming that the combined strain of DeflateGate and Tom's involvement in the Affleck cheating situation has left Brady and Bundchen considering a trial separation.
"Things have never been this bad," says a source, who adds that Gisele has been spending "less and less time at home," and the couple has been "fighting every other day for a week."
"Things between Tom and Gisele have been strained for a long time," says another insider.
Asked about Gisele's constant Instagram odes to her husband, the sources says, "Gisele is ramping up the social media activity because her marriage is breaking down."
Those in the know (or OK's made-up sources) claim Gisele is fed up with finding her husband at the center of scandals, but we have our own theory:
Perhaps Gisele saw that now-infamous courtroom sketch of Brady and couldn't bear the thought of staying married to a melting gremlin. Just a thought.
