There was “no cheating” involved in Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen’s troubled marriage — but the couple has recently “grown apart,” according to sources.

One source said, “There is absolutely no accusation of cheating on either side.

“Tom and Gisele have recently struggled to make their marriage work and have grown apart.

The insider added that the the 45-year-old quarterback, who un-retired from the NFL in March, spent most of the summer living separately from the 42-year-old model.

The couple vacationed with their children in the Bahamas in July, but Bündchen then took the kids to their Costa Rica home for three weeks without Brady, Page Six has learned.

While it was previously believed that the pair was together during Brady’s shocking 11-day break from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ training camp in August, the source tells us that the pro athlete actually took another trip to the Bahamas alone with the kids during that time.

The source close to the couple added, “Gisele wasn’t there in August. It was Tom’s time alone with the kids.”

While Page Six had reported their marriage was on the rocks following an “epic row” about his decision to return to NFL, the family source countered, “There wasn’t an epic fight.

“Gisele has no problem with Tom returning to football, she wants him to be happy, and wants him to play, if that is what he wants.

“There was never an ultimatum set down for Tom to choose between football or her. Their problems are more about the distance that has been created between them over a longer period of time.”

The iconic supermodel was noticeably absent at Sunday’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers game, the team’s first at home, which Brady had been “hopeful” she would attend.

The pair’s kids — Benjamin, 12, and Vivian, 9, plus Jack, 15, who is Brady’s son with Bridget Moynahan — made a sweet appearance on the field before kickoff, having been brought in by Brady’s mother and sisters.

Meanwhile, Brady and Bündchen are still building a home on Indian Creek Island in Miami, known as the “Billionaire Bunker,” Page Six exclusively revealed.

The Brazilian bombshell is said to be staying at a rented home in Miami with their children after she spent time in New York City with her daughter last week.

Bündchen, who is famously the world’s highest-paid supermodel, told Elle magazine that she put her career on hold to support Brady and raise their children, and has asked her husband to “be more present” with their family.

“I have definitely had those conversations with him over and over again,” she told the magazine.

“I’ve done my part, which is [to] be there for [Tom],” she continued. “I moved to Boston, and I focused on creating a cocoon and a loving environment for my children to grow up in and to be there supporting him and his dreams.”

Adding she is ready to continue her work as an environmentalist and a model, she said, “I feel very fulfilled, as a mother and as a wife. And now it’s going to be my turn.”

Other sources speculated that Bündchen’s recent personal drive was because Brady had allegedly been “very self focused” in his own career and NFL goals.

The model has long worked on environmental projects in her home country of Brazil, where has donated hundreds of thousands of trees to the Amazon, and funded water quality programs and humanitarian relief services.

She is also producing a travel series to draw attention to Brazil’s delicate ecosystems. She told Elle, “There are so many things I’m working on, I’ll be here the entire day talking about it.”

Reps for Brady and Bündchen didn’t comment.
