Fans have been curious about Gisele Bündchen’s net worth and what’s at stake if she and Tom Brady break up since they heard rumors that they were going to split up. We’ll explain that later, but for now, let’s just say that one of their net worths is a lot more than the other.
Early Life of Gisele Bündchen
Gisele Bündchen was born on July 20, 1980, in Horizontina, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. She is of German descent. Gisele was raised in Rio Grande do Sul in Southern Brazil with her twin sister Patricia and their four other sisters, Raquel, Graziela, Gabriela, and Rafaela.
Gisele is fluent in Portuguese, English, Italian, Spanish, and French. As a young girl, she was an avid volleyball player and at one point intended to make that her career. In 1993, Gisele, Patricia, and Gabriela took a modeling course to correct their bad posture. The following year, Gisele was discovered in a mall in Sao Paulo by Elite Model Management. She placed second in the Elite Model Look contest. In early 1995, 14-year-old Gisele moved to Sao Paulo to launch her modeling career.
Net Worth of Gisele Bündchen
Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bündchen has a net worth of $400 million. That money is not part of the $250 million fortune that her ex-husband Tom Brady has. When they got married, the net worth of the Bundchen-Bradys was $650 million. How come Gisele has a lot more money than Tom? Think about this: Between 2000 and 2020, his first 20 years in the NFL, Tom Brady made $330 million between his salary and endorsements. Gisele made more than $500 million during the same time period.
