"Good Morning America" co-host Michael Strahan and Jean Muggli were married for seven years. Unfortunately, their relationship ended on bad terms, and it makes headlines even now.

Jean was the second wife of the former NFL player as he was initially married to Wanda Hutchins between 1992 and 1996. Together, Wanda and Michael had two children: Tanita and Michael Strahan Jr.

Jean was awarded $15 million in a settlement.

MICHAEL STRAHAN AND JEAN MUGGLI'S LOVE STORY

In the late 90s, following his and Wanda's breakup, Michael and Jean met. Their reunion took place at a skin-care salon in Manhattan, where she used to work. Judging by Jean's story, Michael wasn't as confident as he appears to be nowadays.

She confessed that the then-NFL star visited the spa for a whole month before finally finding the courage to ask her on a date. Jean thought that he was either the "cleanest man on the planet," or he was just waiting for the right time to ask her out.

Michael's ex-wife also admitted that she was not interested in athletes. However, after getting to know him, she realized that he was not the "typical macho" type of sportsman.

In 1999, soon after they began their relationship, they tied the knot in North Dakota. Unfortunately, in 2006, Jean filed for divorce, alleging that Michael had done some very sensitive things.

THEIR NASTY DIVORCE

Apart from supposedly beating her and having affairs with three different women, Jean claimed that he had secretly videotaped her sister getting undressed.

When their nasty divorce was finalized, Jean was awarded $15 million in a settlement. As though that was not enough, she managed to get $18,000 a month from him in child support, a sum that was reduced to just under $13,000 in 2009.

Following their divorce, Jean went quiet. Apart from disabling her social media accounts, she has done her best to stay away from the public eye.

The former couple managed to keep their problems away from the spotlight for a while. However, in October 2019, Jean took to the court to claim that he owed thousands of dollars in child support.

ACCUSATIONS GOING BACK AND FORTH

Sadly, Michael Strahan and Jean Muggli made headlines again on March 11 this year as he publicly claimed that she was physically and emotionally abusing their twins, Isabella and Sophia Strahan.

In legal documents, the "GMA" host revealed that his ex-wife was not taking the girls to court-ordered therapy sessions. He added that it was also Jean's fault that the children were missing volleyball and equestrian lessons.

Finally, Michael pointed out that he hoped his daughters would move to his home in New York and that Jean could be held accountable for her actions.

Speaking of their children, the former couple share twin daughters, Sophia and Isabella Strahan. They were born in 2004, and they make several appearances on their father's social media accounts.

COMMUNICATING WITH HIS DAUGHTERS IN ISOLATION

On Valentine's Day, for example, the famous "GMA" co-host uploaded a cute collage of four photos showing him posing with his four children. For the caption, he wrote: "My #valentines today and every day! #lovemykids."

Earlier this month, the "Good Morning America" co-host posted a screenshot that showed him and his daughter Sophia during a FaceTime call, the only possible choice for them to communicate amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The former NFL star admitted in the caption of his post that he missed his kids "so much" and that he was grateful that the previously mentioned app existed so he could see their smiles.

While Michael's marriages with his exes Jean Muggli and Wanda Hutchins didn't stand the test of time, his divorces have not affected his relationship with his children.
