Former NFL star Michael Strahan, who reportedly owes $15.3 million to his ex-wife, Jean Muggli, alleged before the North Carolina court that the latter showed a pattern of abusive behavior toward their daughters, Sophia and Isabella.

However, those claims were dismissed on October 13, as both exes have settled on a shared custody arrangement, according to court papers filed in New Hanover County District court.

SPLITTING CUSTODY

Amid the bitter battle between him and Muggli, who divorced from each other in 2006, Strahan wants their daughters to live with him in New York City.

Eventually, his ex-wife, who is living in North Carolina, agreed to have an Upper West Side apartment so the twins can still attend their private schools until they finish high school.

ONE UNRESOLVED MANHATTAN CASE

A source from Muggli’s camp reportedly told Page Six that the Manhattan case she filed against the TV show personality in June 2019 has yet to be settled.

Muggli claimed that Strahan owes her annual cost of living adjustments to the child support payments. They have yet to agree as to how much the increase will be for child support.

As the monetary support remains undetermined, Muggli reportedly accused Strahan of not living up to his promises, including the payments for their daughters’ horse-back riding lessons.

As for Strahan, a source from his camp also claimed that Muggli refused to accept payments intended for child support unless the TV host would agree to modify the terms based on the New Jersey Divorce Decree.
