Why Michael Strahan And Nicole Murphy Ended Their Engagement
Lifestyle News
Michael Strahan and model Nicole Murphy started dating in 2007 and got engaged in the Bahamas on May 22, 2009, but called it all off in 2014.
The reasoning was cited as their competing schedules and where they were based. At the time, Strahan lived in New York and Murphy lived in Los Angeles.
As Strahan’s representative told People, "They love each other very much, but with the distance and work schedule, it has been hard to maintain the relationship."
However, around the time that Strahan and Murphy called things off in 2014, a source informed TMZ that Murphy believed Strahan was cheating on her, and she dumped him.
Murphy may have also been unfaithful; in 2009, sources told the New York Post that she and Demetrius Spencer were hanging out behind Strahan’s back.
Even more strain was added to their relationship when Strahan used hidden tracking devices in Murphy’s car to see where she was going and if she was cheating.
Another reason for the breakup could have a prenuptial agreement. A source told the New York Post that Murphy was unwilling to sign one, despite Strahan being generous to her.
