Megyn Kelly is not happy with Tom Brady and his retirement announcement.
Kelly blasted the now-retired quarterback, saying that the NFL legend sacrificed his marriage to supermodel Gisele Bündchen to play an additional year of football — essentially giving her “a middle finger.”
She reacted to his retirement and what he said when he added “I wouldn’t change a thing.”
“You [Tom Brady] wouldn’t change the part at the end where you lost your wife of 13 years because you wouldn’t retire? A thing that you decided to do 365 days later.”
“Honestly, Tom Brady seems like a rather sweet guy,” Kelly added. “I don’t know if he’s evil-hearted. He’s amazing as a football player, but the collapse of your marriage over one extra year of football seems like something one should regret.”
On February 1st 2022, Brady announced his retirement but changed his mind some 40 days later to play his 23rd year in the league. Soon after, reports surfaced that the couple were having marital problems, which caused Brady to leave his team for like a week before the season began. Brady would then retire on the same exact day this year.

“If that really was the reason, he lasted one more year,” Kelly said.
“For one year, he lost his spouse. Where’s the self-sacrifice? Where’s the mature decision to say, ‘I will table my one year to sacrifice, for you, my spouse; to sacrifice for the sake of my marriage and for the sake of my children to have their family remain together’?”
Kelly speculated as to what Bündchen may have been thinking after she watched his retirement video.
“What would it be like to be Gisele [Bündchen] today?” Kelly asked. “Gisele Bündchen is waking up to her next big photoshoot and sees [Tom Brady’s announcement].”
She then laid out a conversation they might have after his announcement.
“‘Okay, so you [Tom Brady] could have saved the marriage a year ago when I begged you to do this and you refused,’” she said.
“‘And you decided for 300-plus days, it wouldn’t be worth it to lose me, cause all this heartache to our children, blow up our beautiful life.’”
“‘For what? For one season?’”
Kelly added: “I mean, just the insult. And even if that is what actually happened, what a middle finger.”
“That isn’t a good marriage,” Kelly said.
“That is somebody who’s not actually connected and in love and intimately involved in the way you would expect and want your spouse to be.”
Bündchen has been spotted with another guy in the days, weeks, and months since their retirement. She has also been doing sexy photoshoots as well. Following Brady’s announcement on Wednesday, Bündchen wished her ex well, writing: “Wishing you only wonderful things in this new chapter of your life.”WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS?
