Michael Strahan is on top of the TV world. He is one of the co-hosts of Good Morning America, he's one of the co-hosts on the spinoff show, GMA: Strahan, Sara and Keke and he one's of the co-host on the NFL pregame show, Fox NFL Sunday. So it's safe to say things are looking good for the former NFL defensive end.
However, there is an issue with his ex-wife Jean Muggli. There have been reports of Strahan owing Muggli $500,000 of child support payments as well as missed equestrian payments for their two daughters. Strahan has denied he owes her that much money and that has led to some interesting reactions on social media.

Strahan was married before he met Muggli. But after that marriage ended, he met Muggli at a day spa where she worked. Strahan would come to the spa often to see her and he eventually asked her out on a date.
"I figured either he was the cleanest man on the planet or he wanted to ask me out," Muggli said at the time per New York Daily News.prevnext
