An inside source told NY Post, “I never actually thought this argument would be the end of them, but it looks like it is.”
“I don’t think there will be any coming back now,” the source added. “They both have lawyers and are looking at what a split will entail, who gets what and what the finances will be.”

Reps for Brady and Bündchen did not respond to requests for comment.
Both of them are heavily involved in their children’s lives and would share joint custody in any separation.
Their children include Benjamin, 12, and daughter Vivian, 9. Brady is also the father of son Jack, 15, with ex Bridget Moynahan.

The couple would likely file for divorce in Florida, as that’s where they are primarily based, legal experts say. Another source who knows the couple confirm they are looking at dividing their assets, which includes a $26 million property portfolio.
From 2021 to 2022, Brady’s estimated overall net worth swelled from $180 million to $250 million. In May, Forbes reported he is now the ninth-highest-paid athlete in the world, with endorsement deals including Under Armour, Sam Adams, Foot Locker and Tag Heuer.
The couple had been building a home on Indian Creek Island, nicknamed “Billionaires Bunker,” in Miami, but construction has halted.
As Page Six first reported in December 2020, their most recent property purchase was a $17 million home on Indian Creek Island in Miami, nicknamed “Billionaires Bunker.” They planned to knock down the 5,172-square-foot, five-bedroom mansion on the two-acre lot and build a new one.
The couple also own a condo at 70 Vestry St. in Tribeca, valued at $3.6 million, as well as a $5.7 million property at developer Mike Meldman’s Yellowstone Club in Montana.
Bündchen’s favorite property is believed to be their remote home on the Nicoya Peninsula in Costa Rica, where the family often vacations.
