It’s been a few years since former New York Giants defensive end Michael Strahan got divorced from his first wife, Jean Strahan. In case you don’t remember the damage done to Strahan in that ordeal, let us remind you that Strahan was ordered to give his wife $15 million and hundreds of thousands of dollars in child support because there are only so many diapers you can buy with $15 million.
Since then Strahan has spent his time doing just about anything he can to get some of that money back. He’s got the job working on FOX’s NFL studio show, and he even has an ill-fated sitcom ready to debut on FOX as well this fall. Now that he’s starting to recoup some of his losses, for some reason Strahan has now gone out and found another way to lose the money again.
He and his current girlfriend, Nicole Murphy, are now engaged.
Strahan, 37, popped the question to Murphy (the ex-wife of actor Eddie Murphy) on a beach in the Bahamas with a stunning canary yellow and white diamond ring.
“I have a great relationship and she’s a great girl,” says Strahan, who is a father of four. “I don’t like to talk much about my private life, but I’m really happy.”
Apparently Michael has liked what the lojack has been telling him lately.
Now, in case you’re wondering, when Nicole Murphy got divorced from her ex-husband Eddie Murphy, do you know how much money she got in the settlement? That’s right, $15 million. Some people just never learn I guess.
