Judge Calls Strahan Deadbeat for Only Paying Wife Half of $6.5M Settlement

michael-strahan-child-support.jpgAs a professional athlete making a crapload of money, if you ever needed a reason not to get married, well, I present Exhibit A: Michael Strahan.

A judge scolded Michael Strahan, defensive end for the Giants, because he has yet to pay his ex-wife $6.5 million, according to a newspaper report. In January, Judge James Convery awarded Jean Strahan $15.3 million and set child support at $18,000 a month.

There are few things worse than a deadbeat who doesn't pay child support, but on what planet should a guy have to fork over $18,000 a month? Unless, maybe, he has a couple thousand kids.

 

And that's Strahan's argument. To his credit, he's paid more than half the $6.5 million, but apparently the judge was unmoved. According to the AP, the judge said Strahan acted in "bad faith" by not paying the money, and denied a request by Strahan to avoid making the payment while his appeal of the award was still being processed.

 

That seems fair. I mean, there's no way in hell a family can live on almost four million bucks. Just can't see it happening. Jeebus, what is it with New York Giants players and their former spouses?
