Michael Strahan is a busy man that has a lot of jobs. With all that money coming in, a lot of it goes out and possibly even more as his ex-wife Jean Muggli recently took him to court in an effort to get even more child support for the 15-year-old daughters that they share together.
His ex is now claiming that he is not holding up to end of the deal that struck in regards to child support, and she wants that money, according to documents obtained by TMZ.
“Jean Muggli Strahan claims in legal docs … the former NFL superstar’s on the hook for some big-time equestrian expenses for their twin teenage daughters — Sophia and Isabella — along with owing hundreds of thousands in back child support.
Jean says a huge chunk of what Strahan owes her is to cover their daughters’ horseback riding bills … which she claims amount to $450,802 since 2017. According to the docs, Michael agreed to go halfsies with Jean but hasn’t paid up … so she’s seeking more than $225k from him.
In docs he filed, Michael says he never agreed to such an arrangement.
On top of that, Jean claims Michael has underpaid child support since 2010 … because the monthly amount he pays hasn’t been adjusted for cost of living. The docs say she wants $321,654 in back support to make it right.
In his filing, Michael admits part of their agreement does call for cost-of-living adjustments — but adds, the language about how to come up with that number is “vague and indefinite.” Translation: We need to agree on a formula to come up with the correct number.
That being said, by Jean’s current calculation … she’s looking to get more than $547k.”
At the time of their divorce in 2006, Strahan was ordered to pay out a settlement of $15.3 million as well as pay $18K per month for their daughters, which also included $27K on clothing. However, that $18K amount would be decreased to just under $13K a month in 2009.
Jean is claiming that his increased income due to jobs with “FOX NFL Sunday,” “Good Morning America,” and other projects prove he can afford to increase his child support again. She wants him to pay $18,378 a month going forward.
