TOM Brady and Gisele Bündchen “had to divorce quickly and quietly” to avoid a public showdown like Kim Kardashian and Kanye’s dramatic split, a former judge exclusively told The U.S. Sun.
He said the best move was to “stay out of the public eye as much as possible until this case is finalized.”
“They need to refrain from bashing the other party to the public,” he told The U.S. Sun as the pair revealed their “difficult decision” to part.
“It doesn’t seem like either of them have that type of personality, but divorce and custody battles can bring out the worst in human beings.”
“There have been other celebrity divorces like Kanye and Kim where they litigated through the public,” he explained.
“This is always a bad move and can be catastrophic to the progress of a case,” he said.
“The biggest mistake Tom and Gisele could [have made] that could end up hurting potential negotiations [would have been] to allow too much information to leak to the public, especially if there’s something that could be damaging to either party’s reputation,” Bompiani said.
“Both Gisele and Tom have great reputations with the public and I’m sure they want to keep it that way.
“If either party would leak something sensitive, this could anger the other side and blow up any chance of a negotiated settlement.”
If either party [had leaked] something sensitive, this could anger the other side and blow up any chance of a negotiated settlement.
On Friday afternoon, both Tom and Gisele shared their announcements on social media.
“In recent days, my wife and I finalized our divorce from one another after 13 years of marriage,” Brady said in a statement on social media.
“We arrived at this decision amicably and with gratitude for the time we spent together. We are blessed with beautiful and wonderful children who will continue to be the center of our world in every way.
“We will continue to work together as parents to always ensure they receive the love and attention they deserve.”
The seven-time Super Bowl champion continued: “We arrived at this decision to end our marriage after much consideration.
“Doing so is, of course, painful and difficult, like is for many people who go through the same thing every day around the world.
“However, we wish only the best for each other as we pursue whatever new chapters in our lives that are yet to be written.”
‘WISH ONLY THE BEST’
Meanwhile, Gisele shared: “With much gratitude for our time together, Tom and I have amicably finalized our divorce.
“My priority has always been and will continue to be our children whom I love with all my heart. We will continue co-parenting to give them out love, care, and attention they greatly deserve.
“The decision to end a marriage is never easy but we have grown apart and while it is, of course, difficult to go through something like this, I feel blessed for the time we had together and only wish the best for Tom always.”
Bompiani pointed out that “getting caught doing something that could be twisted” would have been potentially damaging to their children.
“Being in the public eye they have to constantly watch out for paparazzi,” he said.
“If one of them is recorded doing something that can be twisted as harmful, it could have an adverse impact on negotiations and the progress of the case in general.”
‘AX TO GRIND’
Bompiani correctly predicted that Tom and Gisele’s rumored divorce would not drag out because of how much they had to lose.
“Unless either party has an ax to grind with the other or there is an unknown reason to protect the children from the other, I think the case will be short-lived,” he said.
“Tom and Gisele both have a lot to lose the longer this litigation proceeds.”
“Tom Brady’s Buccaneers already lost to two of the worst teams in football since the divorce was announced,” he said.
“No one will convince me that that’s not somewhat related due to the impact a divorce has on someone’s psyche, especially with children.”
