The Big Question: Is Michael Strahan Gay?

Michael Strahan has been engaged three times in the past, and all three of his partners were of the opposite sex.

Wanda Hutchins (1992-1996)

Strahan got married to Wanda Hutchins in the year 1992. Wanda Hitchins is the owner and CEO of Wanda Home designs, specializing in home decor and furniture.

He had two children with her, a daughter named Tanita Strahan and a son named Michael Anthony Strahan Jr.

The relationship did not last long; the couple decided to get divorced in 1996, four years after their marriage.

The two ended their marriage on good terms, agreeing to co-parent their kids. But they have been good friends since their divorce. Wanda has even saved him from bad press.

For a long time, the couple decided not to disclose the reason for their split, but years later, Wanda stated that they were just too young and that they mutually decided to divorce.

Jean Muggli (1999-2006)

Similarly, he got married to Jean Muggli just three years after the divorce, seems like he was feeling a bit too lonely without a partner.

Jean Muggli is an American woman native to the city of Carson, North Dakota. Unlike Wanda, she does not have any institution or enterprise in her name; she is only famous for Michael Strahan’s ex-wife.

Jean and Micheal got married in 1999, but Micheal got divorced yet again on the 20th of July, 2006.

The couple had two beautiful daughters together, Isabella Strahan and Sophia Strahan.

This divorce was a bit unpleasant compared to the previous one, as Jean reportedly took away Micheal’s $15 million as a divorce settlement.

During this period, Wanda Hitchins came forward and stated to the media that Micheal was, in fact, a good man and Jean was evil.

When someone’s ex says that he/she is a good man/woman, you better believe that because it is so rare that an ex supports his/her ex-partner even after their break up.

Micheal must have been a good man and a loving husband, so much so that his ex-wife comes to his rescue in times of despair.

She also stated that Jean said, “I wish you all would die” to Wanda’s two little kids.

Michael also had a couple of remarks about his ex-wife, “Jean is sick, evil lady. Jean is sick. I have been praying for her for years. It’s a shame.”

Nicole Mitchelle (2009-2014)

Following the trend, in August of 2009, Micheal got engaged one more time to Nicole Mitchelle, Eddie Murphy’s ex-wife.

Nicole Mitchelle is an actress and a businesswoman; she is the owner of Nicole Murphy Fitness, specializing in health tips, nutrition, healthy food recipes, and workout tutorials.

By this time, you guys might have already predicted the result of their relationship.

Yes, the couple called off the engagement in 2014 and headed their separate ways.

Their breakup made waves in the sea of media as Michael reportedly had cheated on her.

The story goes as such, at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel, Michael was with some other girl. Somehow Nicole got hold of the information that he was there, but she did not know he was with another woman.

Nicole kept banging on his room’s door but to no avail. Apparently, she was convinced that he was, in fact, with another woman.

After that, she yelled and cursed at him through the door, which got her kicked out of the hotel.

Despite ending their relationship in such an intense and dramatic situation, they remained friends after their split.
