Tom Brady reportedly lost 15 pounds amid his divorce from Gisele Bündchen.

ESPN NFL reporter Jeff Darlington revealed the news of Brady’s weight loss as he took a “deeper look” into the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback’s tumultuous past year both on and off the football field.

“Tampa Bay’s team struggled this season. There is no doubt the offense never clicked … but Brady also knows his own mental focus was gone for a bulk of the season,” Darlington said in a video he tweeted Thursday.

“His physical stature, faced with 15 pounds of weight loss, was also in peril.”

The TV host added of Brady, “He felt at times like his preseason anguish ended his chances at success before the regular season had even started.”

A rep for Brady did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment on how much weight the seven-time Super Bowl champion has lost and why.

Despite not addressing his changing appearance himself, fans have certainly taken notice.

“Tom Brady does NOT look healthy…like at all! He looks ‘sickly’ skinny, to the point of concern. #NFL #SNF,” one person tweeted in September 2022.

“Tom Brady looks too skinny. I hope he is ok,” another wrote at the time.

Prior to the weight loss, Brady’s stats listed him as standing at 6-foot-4 and weighing 225 pounds, which experts consider to be an “ideal weight” for his height.

However, even with the reported 15-pound weight loss, he is still within that range.

For years, Brady has followed a strict diet and exercise regimen known as the “TB12 Method.”

The superstar athlete’s chef Allen Campbell previously The Post that they focus on “dark leafy greens, some grass-fed animal protein as well as legumes and whole grains,” adding that game-day meals consist of a smoothie and an almond butter and jelly sandwich.

Stress, however, can be a factor in significant weight loss, and Brady has hinted for some time that he was dealing with personal issues.

The former New England Patriots star took an 11-day break from training camp at the start of the 2022-2023 season and shared at the time, “We all have really unique challenges to our life. I’m 45 years old, man. There’s a lot of s–t going on, so just gotta figure out life the best you can. It’s a continuous process.”

Then, in October, Brady revealed on his SiriusXM podcast, “Let’s Go!,” that he had been dealing with “intense amount of stress.”

Bündchen, 42, filed for divorce shortly after.

Brady confirmed at the time that the divorce had been swiftly finalized following 13 years of marriage, saying on social media that he and his ex had made the “painful and difficult” decision “after much consideration.”

He concluded, “We only wish the best for each other as we pursue whatever new chapters in our lives that are yet to be written.”
