(Photo by Kevin Mazur/WireImage) Gisele Bundchen’s sportsman husband Tom Brady has shut down rumors suggesting the superstar couple is heading for a divorce, insisting they are in “a great place.” Recent reports suggested the Brazilian supermodel was on the brink of pulling the plug on the pair’s six-year marriage after allegedly tiring of the football star’s temper following his reported involvement in the ‘Deflategate’ scandal. After a rough few months — during which the NFL pro was embroiled in a scandal involving the New England Patriots’ decision to deflate footballs during a January playoff game — the spouses of six years appear to be getting back on track. The couple appeared to put on a united front amid the split rumors last week, when Bundchen accompanied her husband to a New York federal court, where he successfully had his four-game suspension from the National Football League overturned on Thursday. There’s no bigger supporter than I have than her and vice versa. ‘Tom thinks it’s only a threat,’ a source claimed to the magazine. ‘But this is definitely a rough patch.’ The insider added: ‘Things are very tense right now.

Three months later, he was suspended for four games by the NFL for his supposed role in Deflategate, the scandal involving alleged football-tampering by his team. (His suspension was overturned by a federal judge last week.) On Tuesday, Brady told a Boston radio station that he turned to a book he’s read every year for help: Don Miguel Ruiz’s “The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom.” “I read a pretty cool book about nine years ago that is kind of a mantra for my life,” Brady said, according to “One of the mantras in the book is don’t take things personally.” The 1997 book is the first in a series of “Toltec Wisdom” volumes published by Amber-Allen, a San Rafael-based press specializing in “works of beauty, integrity and inspirational wisdom.” The publisher’s website says there are over 6 million copies of the book in print. This could be the end of them.’ Gisele did mark Brady’s big day however by sharing a photo which showed the pair and their children enjoying a vacation, along with the caption: ‘Happy birthday my love! notes that Bündchen has cited the book as one of her favorites in interviews with Vanity Fair and Vogue magazines. “You have this kind of epiphany — I don’t need to sweat the small stuff! After a report concluded that Brady was “at least generally aware” of the Patriots’ deflated balls, he was hit with a four-game suspension — which a judge only recently overturned. “I’m a lucky man. Crediting his family with pulling him through the drama, he explained, “There were a lot of different emotions that I went through… I faced obviously different adversities in my life, different challenges and you just kind of rely on those experiences and you rely on a lot of people that are around you for the support. We love you! #love #family.’ The couple share two children together, five-year-old Benjamin and Vivian, two, while Gisele is also stepmother to his eight-year-old son John from his relationship with Bridget Moynahan. In the heartwarming image, Brady is seen playing soccer with Vivian Lake, which the Brazilian bombshell captions ‘and my heart melts #biggestlove #family’. ‘He sent it to me via RKK (Robert Kraft),’ Brady said. ‘I’ve known him since 2002 where I judged one of his beauty pageants, imagine that.

According to the book’s publisher, they’re these pieces of advice: “Be impeccable with your word,” “Don’t take anything personally,” “Don’t make assumptions” and “Always do your best.” Some might find it simplistic, but Brady’s imprimatur might have sent the book, already a perennial bestseller, skyrocketing to the top of Amazon’s rankings. This summer his wife also came under fire when she attempted to avoid media attention by wearing a burqa while as she checked into a famous plastic surgery clinic in Paris. She gave herself away by wearing open-toed sandals – an unusual sight in traditional Muslim clothing – as well as using her chauffeur of five years to drive her there.
