Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady looked like the picture-perfect couple in an Instagram shot for the NFL pro’s birthday on August 3, but behind-the-scenes, that’s not the case. A source told OK! Magazine that there’s big trouble in paradise.
“Things between Tom and Gisele have been strained for a long time,” the source said, noting they’ve “been plagued by the same problems” for years.
The insider insists that the 35-year-old supermodel’s recent lovey-dovey social media activity is actually a coverup for the drama going on in their relationship.
“Gisele is ramping up the social media activity because her marriage is breaking down,” the source said, claiming while out for his birthday dinner, “Tom and Gisele had a massive fight, and she stormed out.”
According to the source, the pair, who wed in 2009, have been “fighting every other day for weeks,” but it was on Tom’s birthday that “things really came to a head” when they “each dredged up every issue with the other that they’d been suppressing.” PHOTOS: See Inside Tom & Gisele's $50 Million Mansion—Complete With Moat!

The timing of their latest fight comes as the Patriots quarterback’s name has been dragged into Ben Affleck’s nanny cheating scandal. The former caretaker, Christine Ouzounian, was seen wearing what Page Six claimed were Brady’s Super Bowl rings on June 27 as the trio flew via private jet to Las Vegas.
But since his birthday blowout, Gisele has “been spending less and less time at home” and exchanging angry texts with her husband. “Things have never been this bad,” the source said.
