Tiger Woods is unfortunately the sports poster of marital conflict. The golfer is notorious for his romantic relationships and spoiling his marriage to Elaine Nordegren, which ended in 2010. He has not been married since, although he has had a number of high-profile relationships.

Tom Brady and his wife have been married for 13 years, but that will soon be over as Gisele Bundchen go their separate ways. This is going to be one of the most famous divorces in recent memory because they are both incredibly famous in their own right.

Bundchen is a famous supermodel, and one of the best in her industry. Brady is perhaps the best American football player of all time. He is at least the most accomplished player with seven Super Bowl episodes.

Divorce can be ugly and expensive. Which one of these divorces cost the most?


Which Divorce Costs More: Brady Bundchen or Woods Nordgren?

Woods and Nordgren split in 2010 and the divorce was one of the most expensive examples. At the time, Nordegren was awarded between $100 million and $110 million. She also got a whopping $20,000 a month in child support.

The rampant cheating that Woods engaged in cost him a lot. It cost him millions in settlements, his wife and his reputation.

For Brady and Bündchen, the divorce has not yet been finalized. They both have agreed as they go through the process, but nothing is final. As a result, there is no cost to Brady yet.

Early reports suggest it could cost upwards of $200 million. However, this has not happened yet.

There is also the possibility that Brady will come out well, given that his net worth is lower than that of his wife, which was not the case for Woods and Nordegren. Bundchen’s net worth is over $400 million, while the legendary player’s net worth is around $250 million.


What did these athletes say about their divorce?

Tom Brady posted on Instagram his story about the divorce:

“We came to this decision amicably and gratefully for the time we spent together. We have been blessed with beautiful, wonderful children who will continue to be the center of our world in every way.”

He concluded by saying:

“We will continue to work together as parents to ensure they always get the love and attention they deserve. We came to this decision to end our marriage after much consideration.”

Woods had the same sentiment in 2010:

“We are saddened that our marriage is over, and we wish each other the best for the future. While we are no longer married, we are parents to two wonderful children, and their happiness has always been and will always be of paramount importance to both of us.”

There is currently no timeline for ending the divorce between Brady and Bündchen. These things can take a lot of time. However, since it seems like a more amicable divorce than many, it could go a lot smoother.
