Jean Muggli is widely known as the ex-wife of retired NFL player Michael Strahan -who spent his entire NFL career with the New York Giants.
Jean and her famous ex-hubby were married for six years from 1999–2006 -during which they welcomed twin daughters, Sophia and Isabella Strahan born in 2004. Their story is perhaps best identified after it ended.
The two were married after meeting at a spa where Jean was working. He made her his second wife after being married to Wanda Hutchins from 1992 until 1996 -the mother of his two older kids, Tanita and Michael.
After the fairytale ended for the second time for Strahan, he and Jean Muggli were the protagonists of one of the nastiest divorce battles.
In March 2005 everything came crashing down, Jean called police claiming Strahan had threatened to beat her. He countered by filing for divorce, claiming he had confronted her after she withdrew $3.3 million from their bank accounts.
In her testimony, Muggli claimed that their children’s preferences justified her spending $22,500 on photo shoots, $27,000 on clothing, and $1,700 for sign language classes. Strahan appealed. In March 2007, the court ordered the Montclair, New Jersey mansion to be auctioned and the sales money split evenly with Jean.
In court papers, she claimed he had cheated on her, refused to sleep with her and had secretly recorded her sister undressing while she stayed in their home. Jean also testified that Strahan wired her $30,000 to keep quiet about it.
Jean received $15.3 million in the divorce settlement, in addition to $18,000 monthly child support.
That amount was decreased to just under $13,000 in 2009, TMZ said. And their money battle is still ongoing over a decade later.
Now, Page Six reports Jean is seeking $18,378 a month, saying her ex’s monthly income is significantly higher thanks to his lucrative gigs on “Fox NFL Sunday” and “Good Morning America.” She also says Strahan owes her more than $500,000 in back child support.
Jean Muggli born in 1965, is a North Dakota native, she has a sister, Denise -whose name also came up during the divorce proceedings.
Prior to becoming Mrs. Strahan, Jean Muggli worked at the Manhattan skin-care salon and is also a former cosmetic store manager. According to her social media, she went to Carson High School and studied at NDSU Bison. She lists herself as the President/Domestic Engineer at Strahan Family INC.
