Emily Ratajkowski is not only a model, a swimwear founder and a New York Times bestselling author, she’s also a shining example of how to not only handle a divorce in the public eye, but make it part of your glow-up both personally and professionally.
In the months following her split from her then-husband, Sebastian Bear-McClard, Ratajkowski first got some break-up bangs (Camila Morrone opted for the same after breaking up with Leonardo DiCaprio), then began her now-cult TikTok following, before she started hooking up with everyone from Brad Pitt to hot anonymous motorcycle guy in New York City while continuing to walk runway shows all over the world.
Now, another new bombshell has entered the villa. I mean, has filed for divorce from her husband. That of supermodel Gisele Bündchen, who confirmed she and Tom Brady were, indeed, separating, in a joint Instagram post over the weekend after months of speculation. “The decision to end a marriage is never easy,” she wrote. “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.”
Thankfully, it appears Bündchen is doing “just fine” following the split with a source telling PEOPLE that’s in part because she is accustomed to doing things on her own.
“Gisele is dealing with issues that have been plaguing her for a long time,” they said, explaining the split was “was hard at first,” “but enough time has passed that she is settling in.”
She “has lived her own life for years while Tom played football so she is not afraid to do things by herself,” they added.
According to the insider, “nothing is more important than” to Bündchen than her and Brady’s children, son, Benjamin Rein, 12, and daughter, Vivian Lake, 9, and their “happiness” during this time. “They will be with both parents and should come out of this in good shape.”
Earlier this year, Bündchen expressed her desire to focus on her own goals moving forward after years of prioritising Brady, his career, and her family, telling ELLE US, “I have a huge list of things that I have to do, that I want to do. At 42, I feel more connected with my purpose.”
Watch out world, Gisele Bündchen is back.
