Strahan, give it up!
He is getting raped. I don't know much about the situation but the articles I read painted his wife as a true bi!ch. Looks like the judge sided with her. What a stupid prenuptual agreement!

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -- New York Giants star Michael Strahan was ordered to pay his ex-wife $15.3 million -- more than half his net worth -- in keeping with the couple's prenuptial agreement.
Under the agreement, Jean Strahan was entitled to 50 percent of their joint marital assets and 20 percent of his yearly income from each year they were married.
Strahan claimed that he wasn't responsible for the 20 percent because his wife failed to ask for it every year.
But state Superior Court Judge James Convery disagreed, saying in his ruling that "the plaintiff is not credible in his claim that the defendant never asked for her separate funds."
In addition to the $15.3 million, Convery awarded Jean Strahan hundreds of thousands of dollars in child support
Jean Strahan, who married the football player in 1999, said she was happy with the ruling.
"It pays to tell the truth, and I told the truth," she said in Saturday's New York Post. "I never asked for a penny more than the prenup that Michael and his lawyers wrote and made me sign. And all I ever asked for was that to be upheld."
A call to Michael Strahan's attorney, Robert Penza, and his agent, Tony Agnone, were not immediately returned Saturday.
A call to Jean Strahan's attorney, Ellen Marshall, was also not immediately returned

New York must be a community property state. Assets and debts accumulated duirng the time of the marriage are owned jointly and severally by both parties. Pretty standard stuff. If he made 40k a year nobody would care. Usually a pre-nup is done to avoid having to be held responsible for the normal legal responsibilities. This one actually reinforced them. Obviously Strahan's no rocket scientist...not sure why that makes the wife a b**** but I'm sure she must be because otherwise she'd have let him keep everything and ignore the agreement he had her sign.
