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.
Though, the ex’s took separate paths ages ago following an ugly divorce; they’re still making headlines together. Most recently last November when it was reported they settled a case where he claimed she abused the children they share together.
Strahan, a former NFL player turned TV personality, had accused Jean Muggli of demonstrating a ‘pattern of abusive conduct’ towards their teenage daughters. It was reported that he agreed to dismiss the claims ‘with prejudice’ after the parties reached a settlement agreement.
Their current situation regarding their kids is that they each get the children for a week at a time.
There’s no doubt that as much as they hate each other’s guts, both Strahan and ex, Jean Muggli, are still pretty much forced to deal with each other more often than we think.

Michael Strahans Wives
Michael Strahan has been married and divorced twice. He is a father of four children in total. He welcomed two kids from his first marriage and two as well from his second.
Let’s meet the two former Mrs. Strahan.
Wanda Hutchins was Strahan’s first wife and his high school sweetheart. She was born in Germany to a half-German father and a half-French mother.
Their relationship blossomed after Strahan moved to Germany with his family when he was 9-years-old. The two met in Mannheim, Germany where both their fathers, who served in the US military, were stationed.
The two went long-distance for a while when Strahan returned to the US during his senior year, but he soon returned to Germany to finish out his last year of high school. Strahan however had to returned to the US to attend Texas Southern University.
During his senior year of college, Strahan visited Germany once more where Hutchins surprised him with some big news: he was going to be a father. Hutchins and Strahan married soon after and relocated their small family to Houston. A year later, in 1993, the couple welcomed their second child.
The marriage, however, didn’t last and the two were divorced by 1996. Strahan remained in the US while Hutchins returned to Germany with the couple’s children.
Strahan and Hutchins have remained in good terms.
Wanda currently runs Wanda Home Designs, a company dealing with creating furniture and home decor pieces using wood or repurposing existing items.
Jean and her famous ex-hubby were married for six years from 1999–2006 -during which they welcomed twin daughters. 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.
Jean Muggli born in 1965, is a North Dakota native, she has a sister, Denise -whose name also came up during the divorce proceedings.

Michael Strahan Divorce
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.
