Michael Strahan divorce case stunning even seasoned divorce lawyers
UPI News Service, 07/16/2006
The nasty divorce between New York Giants Pro Bowl defensive end Michael Strahan and his soon-to-be ex-wife is stunning even seasoned divorce lawyers.
The case features sordid details like adultery, beatings and rampant overspending of money, the Newark (N.J.) Star-Ledger reported. The highly public case, taking place in Superior Court in Newark, is a culmination of 17 months of a very bitter battle between a couple, who once projected a clean, wholesome image.
Accusations include Michael Strahan's alleged "alternative" affair with television doctor Ian Smith, an accusation that Michael Strahan secretly videotaped his sister-in-law getting undressed and Michael Strahan's allegation that Jean Strahan cheated on him with other women, the newspaper said.
The case, far from settled, has turned into a spectacle that most celebrities try to avoid. Michael Strahan, who once appeared in television commercials for Campbell's Chunky Soup, is trying to refurbish his image.
