Michael Strahan Speaks Out About Family

Part of the reason Strahan chose to spend a “low-key” birthday may be due to the fact that he is focused on spending time with family. Last week, the former New York Giants star spoke out about his daughters growing up during an appearance on “The Drew Barrymore Show.”

According to the former football player, his twin daughters Sophia and Isabella, 16, can expect their dates to be scared away. Strahan jokingly said he plans on suiting up in pads to meet his daughter’s prospective dates.

“I’m going to have my shoulder pads on… going to have my arms greased down,” he starts. Adding, “I’m going to have my helmet on and I’m going to have black stripes under my eyes… I’m going to make sure I’m like, ‘Who you here to see?’” 

Sued By His Marijuana Business Partner

In addition to hosting a number of TV programs, Strahan also has a side hustle: a marijuana business with rapper Wiz Khalifa. The two partnered up to form Khalifa Kush.

Strahan and Khalifa are now facing a lawsuit from one of their business partners in the cannabis company. At this point, Strahan is yet to speak out about the lawsuit. Learn more about the sticky situation here.
