This past week there have been rumors that recent divorcés Reese Witherspoon and Tom Brady are dating, but both of their reps have denied this in statements to People. The 47-year-old Oscar winner and 45-year-old NFL star apparently haven’t even met, according to a source.
Witherspoon and her soon-to-be ex-husband Jim Toth announced their separation in March, releasing a joint statement on Instagram that read, “It is with a great deal of care and consideration that we have made the difficult decision to divorce. We have enjoyed so many wonderful years together and are moving forward with deep love, kindness and mutual respect for everything we have created together.”
“Our biggest priority is our son and our entire family as we navigate this next chapter,” they added. “These matters are never easy and are extremely personal. We truly appreciate everyone’s respect for our family’s privacy at this time.”
The former couple had apparently been splitting their assets for some time in preparation for the official end of their marriage, including selling properties and their production company Hello Sunshine. They also share their son 10-year-old son Tennessee, and are reportedly working out custody arrangements.
Brady split with ex-wife Gisele Bündchen in an official divorce in October 2022, following reports of marital problems around Brady’s decision to return to the NFL after his first retirement. They share two children, 10-year-old daughter Vivian, and 13-year-old Benjamin. They remain positive co-parents with one another.
“We’re not playing against each other. We are a team,” Bündchen said in an April cover story for Vanity Fair. “And that’s beautiful.”
The super model added that she has “no regrets” over her marriage for the time it lasted.
“I loved every bit of it,” she said.
