Her Parents Got Married In 1999 And Divorced In 2006
Michael Strahan and Jean Muggli, Sophia Strahan’s parents, married in 1999. The couple married after meeting at a Manhattan spa shortly after Michael’s divorce from Wanda Hutchins in 1996.
Unfortunately, a few months after she and her twin sister were born in 2004, her father filed for divorce. The divorce took two years to settle in 2006, virtually ending her parents’ marriage.
Her parents kept pointing accusing fingers at one other before the divorce was official.
Sophia’s mother accused her father of domestic violence which began even before they got married in 1999. Her father, on the other hand, said he did not physically or emotionally assault her mother.
The issue started when the former NFL player discovered that Muggli had transferred nearly $1.7 million from one of their joint accounts, he confronted her. Even though she agreed to move the money, she justified her actions by claiming that he had cut her credit cards and that he was also moving money.
Her father had the court on his side because her mother’s charges were unfounded and without merit.
Sophia’s father was ordered to pay her mother more than $15 million as part of the divorce settlement in 2006. He was also asked to sell their house together. The house was sold for approximately $3.6 million, and he left her $1.8 million from the sale of the New Jersey property.
Muggli was also granted primary custody of Sophia and her twin sister, Isabella, and Michael was ordered to pay a monthly child support charge of $18,000.
Prior to their marriage, her parents signed a prenuptial agreement. In the event of a divorce, the arrangement permitted her mother to keep half of their assets.
