Jean Muggli with Michael Strahan

Jean Muggli worked at a skincare center as a shop attendant in Manhattan. They first met when Michael visited the spa center (skincare center), where she was working.

Jean’s beauty enchanted the former NFL player. Their story was more like love at first sight. Michael Strahan visited the center regularly and bought a lot of soap bars to get her attention.

Michael did not make any move for a month. Eventually, the NFL star made his move and asked his future second wife to go on a date. Jean Muggli couldn’t say no. 

They were in a relationship for several years and ultimately tied the knot in 1999 in North Dakota.

Divorce with Michael Strahan

Even though Jean went to live a quiet life after her ugly divorce from Michael, she has been in the spotlight repeatedly.

Whether it was herself accusing her ex-husband of not fulfilling the child support responsibility or it was her husband who accused her of being an absentee mother.

In October 2019, Jean claimed that her ex-husband still owed her a considerable sum in child support. However, Michael denied the accusation.

Recently, on March 11, 2020. Michael again accused Jean of being an absentee mother. He also claimed that Jean had been a terrible mother and an abusive parent.

Furthermore, the former Good Morning America fame, Michael, even claimed that his daughters missed their court-ordered therapy and volleyball classes because of their mother.

We, being outsiders, can only assume the truth until it comes out of the closet. Until then, let’s hope the teenage daughters don’t get affected by the crisis.

Arrested in New York after violating ex-girlfriend’s order of protection in 2021

Michael Strahan’s ex-wife has recently been a topic of another controversy after getting arrested.

Michael Strahan’s ex-girlfriend, Marianne Ayer, filed for a restraining order on Jean Muggli after appearing at Ayer’s Upper West Side home even though she has an order of protection that states that Jean Mugli needs to stay away from Marianne Ayer.

Jean was arrested for breaking the order of protection. 

In early June, Marianne had filed a case against Jean for disorderly conduct, harassment, grand theft, and forcible touching. Muggli had threatened her with a plastic gun and had also kicked her German Shepherd.


Unlike a lot of celebrity wives, Jean Muggli comes from a simple background.

Before meeting her ex-husband, she was a shop attendant at a skincare and spa center in Manhattan. She knew about selling cosmetic products and had hardly been exposed to media attention.

Similarly, information about a post-relationship with Michael is also a mystery.

She is currently working as President/Domestic Engineer at Strahan Family INC
