An insider close to Gisele Bündchen revealed the 42-year-old supermodel’s mindset when it comes to her marriage to Tom Brady: “She is done with their marriage. She was upset about it for a long time and it’s still difficult, but she feels like she needs to move on. She doesn’t believe that her marriage can be repaired.” Nevertheless, the source also added that Gisele is doing okay as her marriage with Tom seems to reach its expiry date. For now, Bündchen is en route to figuring out her life and doesn’t have much contact with Brady. If the divorce goes through, the source claims Gisele – who loves Miami and has friends there – sees herself living there permanently: “Again, she is still trying to figure things out.
