Attorneys Say Tom Brady & Gisele Bündchen Were ‘Smart’ To Delay Filing For Divorce In Order to Maintain Privacy 

Meanwhile, a divorce attorney told PageSix that Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen were “smart” to delay filing for divorce. This is due to it allowing them to maintain privacy. 

While explaining the process, Jacqueline Newman, a divorce attorney, told the media outlet, “They very often will settle behind closed doors before they let anyone in. I think it’s very common. It’s the smarter way to do things.” 

Newman also said that public divorces may impact a celebrity’s image. “You’re not only negotiating issues of custody and issues of finances, but you also have to be very careful if your public image is very valuable. It’s just smarter not to put anything out there until you’re done and the ink is dried.”

PageSix further reports that along with taking the classes, the former couple has agreed on a marital settlement agreement. However, the agreement remains confidential.
