It’s over for Michael Strahan and Nicole Murphy.
News regarding Strahan and Murphy’s split was announced by People on Friday, Aug. 1, just one day before Strahan is scheduled to be inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. The former New York Giants star and current co-host of ‘Live! With Kelly and Michael’ will be honored at a ceremony on Saturday, Aug. 2.
