Gisele Bündchen to talk Tom Brady divorce in Vanity Fair
Gisele Bündchen is set to break her silence on her split from Tom Brady in a Vanity Fair cover story, Page Six is told.
The Brazilian supermodel, 42, has been spotted vamping for the cameras in a dazzling return to modeling — and looked fantastic as she sported a pink Chanel swimsuit during a photo shoot near her Florida home.
Now, sources say that the mother-of-two will pose for a VF cover and talk in depth about her divorce from NFL champ Brady for the first time.
A VF spokesperson said the publication does not comment on editorial rumors, but one Condé Nast insider told Page Six: “I could see this as a cover to celebrate Earth Month in April, as that’s a subject close to Gisele’s heart. But it could also be a summer cover.”
The model previously starred on the cover of Vanity Fair in September 2007 and May 2009. An industry insider mused: “I think this makes sense for Gisele. She’s come out of the divorce looking independent and smart.”
Bündchen, who topped Forbes’ highest-paid model list from 2002 to 2016, took a step back from that career to raise her and Brady’s children, Benjamin, 12, and 9-year-old Vivian.
The couple finalized their divorce in October, with Bündchen saying that, despite the “difficult” decision to end the marriage, she felt “blessed” for the 13 years she and Brady had together.
And she’s now back with a vengeance.
Earlier this month, Bündchen fronted Louis Vuitton’s Yayoi Kusama collection campaign, posing topless in jeans while modeling the brand’s new handbag collection. Since then, she’s been seen shooting beachside in Miami.
The model has been splitting her time between Miami and Costa Rica with her kids and their family jiu-jitsu instructor Joaquim Valente, with whom she’s developed a close friendship.
“She is supercharged about her career in the next few months,” a source recently told People magazine of Bünchen. “She is busy making decisions and feels happy and more settled than she has in a long time.”
