Michael Strahan has settled claims against his ex-wife that she abused their 16-year-old twin daughters. The former NFL star alleged that Jean Strahan engaged in a “pattern of abusive conduct” toward daughters Sophia and Isabella.
According to court papers, the former couple, who officially divorced in 2006, have now settled on a shared custody agreement. The girls have been living with their mother in North Carolina, but she has agreed to obtain a New York City apartment so that the girls can attend high school in the city where their father resides.
Good Morning America’s Michael Strahan Settles Claims Against Ex-Wife
The parents have a history of taking their disagreements to court, with Jean alleging that the “Good Morning America” co-host owes her annual cost of living adjustments to the child support payments.
The famous father of twins has claimed that his ex was not only physically and emotionally abusive towards the girls, but that she also failed to bring them to court-ordered therapy sessions and let their children miss extracurricular activities like horseback-riding and volleyball games.
Here’s hoping the exes will put their differences behind them and co-parent in a healthy and peaceful fashion for the sake of their daughters.
