Her grandmother, Louise Strahan, was a notable basketball coach.

Tanita’s parents gave birth to Michael Jr. in 1995. Unfortunately, things were not going easier for her parents as Michael was busy with the hype of his fame and career.

This led to their divorce in 1996.

Tanita Strahan’s parents had a peaceful divorce after being married for 4 years. It was through mutual understanding.

Settling down with their differences at such a young age got difficult for the couple when things did not exactly fall into place.

Despite not having a bitter divorce with Wanda, unlike his second divorce, Michael could not give much attention to his kids due to his career path and physical distance from them.

Tanita and Michael Jr. were living in Germany with their mother’s family.

Though the divorce ended with shared custody of their children with cooperation, Wanda became the breadwinner of her family. Their private issues were never taken out in public, but Tanita was not completely free of media gazing.

This is why Wanda moved to Germany while raising Tanita. The kids had a good relationship with their father, who visited them on rare occasions.

Michael provided child care support to Wanda and has friendly relations with her.
