While other people request $225,000 for a child’s education or health expenses, Micheal Strahan’s ex-wife asked it for another reason. She wanted Strahan to pay that amount just for their daughters’ horseriding classes.
Where Are The Couple With Their Custody Agreement?
The former NFL star, Micheal Strahan and Jean Strahan, have been fighting with full force to get custody agreement for their children. Jean Strahan has been pushing for Micheal Strahan to pay more than $570,000.
Micheal Strahan’s ex-wife claimed that she’s requesting this amount because she paid a considerable sum to teach their children horseriding. So this required amount was for half the $450,802, that she paid for. This excessive amount for horseriding was reasonable considering how expensive such a hobby is.
The NFL star turned TV host, and his wife got a divorce back in 2006, after being married for less than ten years. At the time of the divorce, Jean Strahan managed to get Micheal Strahan to pay $18,000 per month for child support. This amount was revised to under $13,000 in 2009.
Why Is The Child Support Amount Being Increased Again?
Micheal Strahan was thrown off-guard when his ex-wife requested another change in the amount for child support. Jean Strahan wanted Micheal to increase the amount she was receiving to over $18,000 a month. The justified her request by saying that she was asking because Micheal could now afford it, thanks to his new gigs.
The ex-NFL star has been doing quite well for himself. He has managed to land himself sweet gigs on “Fox NFL Sunday” and “Good Morning America.” So, he is living the life right now. At least he was, until this whole fiasco.
Jean Strahan also claimed that Micheal Strahan reneged on his agreement of splitting the cost for the horseriding classes. This, however, was requested not to be accurate, according to a source who said that Micheal had always honoured his commitments when it came to his children.
She filed for a money judgment in the New York Supreme Court on July 10. However, it took so long because the couple had a contemporaneous case in North Carolina. There have been no comments from Jean Strahan or Micheal Strahan’s side. Both of them are not backing out, and we will have to wait and see how things pan out.
