Gisele Bundchen gestures during 2023 Carnival parades at Marquês de Sapucaí Sambodrome on February 19, 2023 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

While appearing on the cover of Vanity Fair‘s April issue, Gisele Bündchen finally dishes on the split that everyone has been talking about. Only two and a half months after filing for divorce from Tom Brady, after 13 years of marriage, and Bündchen’s emotions are still very raw. “It’s like a death and a rebirth,” the supermodel tells the publication on Wednesday (March 22).

Losing a partner to divorce feels like death to Bündchen, 42. The Brazilian bombshell calls her mourning “the death of my dream.” She adds, “It’s tough because you imagine your life was going to be a certain way, and you did everything you could, you know?” After getting choked up, she continues on to say that despite the hurt, she’s grateful she gave everything she got. “You give a hundred percent of yourself, and it’s heartbreaking when it doesn’t end up the way you hoped for, and worked for, but you can only do your part.”

Bündchen wanted to clear the air that she had not presented Brady with an ultimatum. She did not, in fact, say that if his career continued, their marriage would not. According to Bündchen, no such thing ever happened and she calls those characterizations “very hurtful” and “the craziest thing I’ve ever heard.” When asked if there’s anything that’s been reported about her highly-publicized split that isn’t true, the model emphasized, “Everything.”

To best summarize how her 13-year marriage unraveled, Gisele said there was a gradual drift between the two. “Sometimes you grow together; sometimes you grow apart,” Bündchen said. “We wanted a family, we wanted things together. As time goes by, we realize that we just wanted different things, and now we have a choice to make.”

Rather than put Brady in “jail and say, ‘You have to live this life,'” she decided that setting him free is the best way to be authentic and live “the life that you want to live.”
