After nearly 14 years of marriage, NFL legend Tom Brady and supermodel Gisele Bündchen have finalized their divorce. “The decision to end a marriage is never easy but we have grown apart and while it is, of course, difficult to go through something like this, I feel blessed for the time we had together and wish the best for Tom always,” Gisele wrote. One of the biggest questions that will emerge from the divorce is the subject of their fortunes: did Tom and Gisele sign a pre-nup?
Couples can legally sign a prenuptial agreement when they want to keep their assets after they file for divorce. If they don’t sign this, the person who has the larger fortune usually pays the other half of what they are worth. Marca’s recent article entitled “Did Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen sign a prenup amid their imminent divorce?” explains that in this case, Gisele Bündchen is actually worth almost double what Tom Brady is worth.
With this much money in play, failing to sign a prenuptial agreement isn’t wise. Many people erroneously believe that Tom Brady has more money than Gisele because he’s the greatest quarterback in NFL history. But, perhaps surprisingly, the supermodel is indeed worth more.
Gisele was likely advised to sign this prenup just as much as Tom Brady was. Their lawyers have an obligation to advise them so. After all, Gisele made a fortune from her multiple fashion sponsors and brands: her net-worth is $400 million against Tom Brady’s $250 million. She constantly makes revenue from sales, whereas Tom generates his fortune from his salary with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and his sponsors.
Both sides have agreed they’d split their assets in a fair manner.
