“Live with Kelly and Michael” Michael Strahan and his fiancee Nicole Murphy Brooklyn Nets game at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

Michael Strahan & Nicole Murphy’s break-up over Pre-nup, and How she tried to ruin the biggest Night of his life!

Michael Strahan and Nicole Murphy’s break-up over Pre-nup, and How she tried to ruin the biggest Night of his life!

It was officially announced over the weekend that the couple was parting ways.  This ended what was a seven year relationship, five of which the two were engaged. A rep for Strahan hinted that the break up was due to the couple’s busy schedules.  As told to People,

They love each other very much, but with the distance and work schedule it has been hard to maintain their relationship


As we learned over the last few years, Strahan is no dummy. He likes to play the loveable oaf, but when it comes down to it, he is a man about his business.  He has been to the alter twice and has lost a crap load of money the last time. [more…]


This break up was pretty uneventful.  He married Wanda Hutchins in 1996 and the two split and Strahan was paying $2500 in child support.  However he wasn’t that big of a deal then, his star was on the rise…..

In 2007, when he separated from his  2nd wife jean Muggli he was ordered to pay her $15.3 Million which was more than half of his net worth.  The pre-nup he had her sign entitled her to 50 percent of their joint marital assets and 20 percent of his annual income from each year they were married.  He married her in 1999.  He also had to pay $18,000 in child support as Jean justified spending $22,500 on photo shoots, $27,000 on clothing and $1700 for sign language lessons for his twin daughters.  (BTW neither daughter is hearing impaired).  Did I mention – HE HAD A FREAKIN’ PRENUP!!

Who the heck was his lawyer?

Needless to say that he would not marry again, without a damn good pre-nup, especially now that he is bigger than ever.  His bank account is “on  swole” and his net worth is hanging out around $45 Million and he is pulling down a $10 million dollar check from hosting “Live! with Kelly and Michael” and other related appearances.


That is indeed the case.  Eddie and Nicole met in 1998, married in 1993 and after five kids, they broke up in 2005.

Through a series of bad investments, (she was actually scammed), Nicole began to blow through the $15 Million dollars.  Back in 2012, it was reported that she owed $846,000 to the IRS, $600,000 to a law firm, $60,000 to her landscapers and $5 Million on a house that had to be auctioned off.

This is why she is reluctant to sign a pre-nup, she wants to make sure she has some money!  See how it all comes together!!


Michael strahan hall of fame bust and blazer

Saturday, after being previously nominated but never inducted, Strahan was finally inducted into the Hall of Fame.  This was his life long dream and he was one of seven to be given that honor.  Although he and Nicole actually called off the engagement weeks ago, she waited until the exact moment that he was receiving his hall of Fame Blazer to announce the split.  This was not coincidence.  She of all people knew how important that moment was for him and tried her best to ruin it.

However Michael could not be phased.  Strahan opened his acceptance speech with,

This has been the best weekend of my life

Let’s see if the split lasts. Once she finds out he is ok without her, but she is not without him, she might be having second thoughts on signing that Pre-up.  She ain’t as young and fierce as she used to be and the competition for millionaires is just that…..young and fierce!
