Tom Brady Beats Deflategate Suspension Amid Gisele Bundchen Divorce Rumors
By Antoinette Bueno
Tom Brady was a winner in court on Thursday, when a judge nullified the 38-year-old quarterback's four-game suspension by the NFL.
Judge Richard M. Berman overturned NFL commissioner Roger Goodell's May 11 suspension, over Brady's alleged role in using under-inflated footballs in a playoff game against the Indianapolis Colts earlier this year. Brady is now clear to play in the New England Patriots' season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sept. 10.
Brady has always maintained his innocence throughout Deflategate, even as Patriots owner Robert Kraft decided not to fight the NFL's penalties -- which included a $1 million fine and the loss of a 2016 first-round pick and 2017 fourth-round pick.
So does this mean tensions will ease between Brady and his wife, 35-year-old supermodel Gisele Bundchen? A source close to the couple told ET on Wednesday that the genetically-blessed pair are currently "going through a rocky point," due to Gisele's "perfectionist" ways and the Super Bowl champ's intense focus on football.
