|Nicole Murphy's Ex Michael Strahan Denies Being|
Gay & Beating Ex-Wife
The former NFL star, who recently split from Hollywood Exes' Nicole Murphy, was subjected to rumors surrounding his sexuality with reports claiming he was gay and that he was a wife-beater after his divorce from Jean Muggli in 2006.
"The worst of it?" Michael tells Bryant Gumbel in HBO's Real Sports. "I think early on when you’re reading all these things in the paper that aren't true — I’m not an adulterer. I’m not gay. I mean, I didn't beat anybody."
When Gumbel says that the divorce didn't damage his public image, Michael responded: "Everybody has their own problems . . . I just kept go on being myself and it worked."
