Michael Strahan and Jean Muggli’s married life and split.
It was love at first sight for Michael Strahan, when he first saw Jean Muggli at a spa, where she worked as a shop attendant in 1999. Michael kept visiting the spa skincare salon to purchase soap bars, just to take a glimpse of his new attraction, Jean Muggli. The couple tied the knot the same year.
The couple bore twins Sophia Strahan and Isabella Strahan, born in 2004. They are now in their teens living with their mother.
Jean and Michael lived very well until emerging news in 2005, of violence, began to arise from their relationship. Jean Muggli accused the husband of beating and threatening her. According to her, he beat her violently, damaging her kidney.
She went ahead to accuse him of having affairs with other women. Jean Muggli claimed that the husband denied her conjugal rights and neglected their children. She claimed that Michael had secretly recorded her sister undressing while she stayed with them.
Michael Strahan also laid claims against his wife Jean Muggli, who he said had withdrawn $ 3.3 million from their bank account without his approval. After the ugly divorce with many long winding claims, the judges dismissed the physical violence claims against Michael but went to grant a divorce to the couple in the year, 2006.
The divorce resulted in a huge settlement. The judges granted Jean Muggli alimony of $15 million and a monthly sum of $18,000 for child care. Expensive is not an appropriate enough word to describe their divorce.
Jean was a spendthrift who spent a lot of money on her two daughters: $1700 for sign language classes, $27,000 on clothing, and $22,500 on the photo. She used her daughters as an excuse for her high expenditures.
Michael Strahan went back to court to appeal the high level of expenditure. In 2007 the court ordered Michael to sell off his mansion to settle the divorce. They split the money fifty-fifty.
Michael in one of his ABC game shows in 2012, opened up about the accusations from his ex-wife, saying
“I think early on when you’re reading all these things in the paper that aren’t true — I’m not an adulterer. I’m not gay. I mean, I didn’t beat anybody.”
