For all Gatsby's romantic illusions about Daisy, she is pretty superficial. Tom fills Daisy in about how Gatsby got his money through shady crime deals. Daisy seems to lose interest in Gatsby. Perhaps Gatsby might have pointed out that Tom is an abusive sod with no conscience but really Daisy isn't much different.
