The couple finally got divorced in 1996 but remained silent about the reason for their divorce. It was only years later that Wanda came forward to reveal the cause of their split. She explained that both the couple was too young to have been committed for life, and thus they separated but with mutual understanding.
Wanda's mother even accused Michael of abandoning his kids, however, her claims were later disproved by Wanda.
Post Divorce: Comes Forward To Ex-Husband's Defense
After the divorce, Michael got married to Jean Muggli in 1999, whereas, his ex-wife Wanda has remained unmarried to this day. Although Wanda didn't get married for a second time, she got involved in dating other guys. She even went on to have a son named Dorian from one of her previous relationships.
On the other hand, Michael and Jean were also later blessed with twin daughters, Sophia, and Isabella Strahan, born in 2004. However, the relationship got an ugly end when Jean filed for a divorce in 2006 accusing Michael of physical assault.
Jean even accused him of being gay, but Wanda being a sympathetic person, came forward to Michael's defense. She insisted that the former basketball player was a loyal husband and a loving father to his children.
Wanda further mentioned that Jean was a cruel person and even wished for Wanda's children's death. She stated that Jean once angrily shouted at Wanda's children saying,
“I wish they were dead.”
Jean's evil demeanor was further revealed when Michael's father disclosed that he had warned his son not to marry her. He even sent a letter to his son Michael to be careful of Jean.
"Jean is a sick, evil lady. Mike was mad at me. My wife was mad at me, and Jean, of course, was mad at me. But I had to get it off my chest. Jean is sick. I’ve been praying for her for years. It’s a shame.”
The divorce was later settled, and the former football star was court ordered to pay a sum of $15 million and a monthly alimony payment of $18,000.
Post his second divorce, Wanda's ex-husband started dating again and this time with model Nicole Murphy. The pair even got engaged but later broke up in 2014.
When an engagement and two marriages couldn't work out, Michael gave another chance to a new relationship. He started dating Kayla Quick in 2015 and they are still together. The couple is rarely spotted together and often likes to keep their romance low-key.

As of now, Michael, age 45, is maintaining a loving relationship with his girlfriend while also sharing a healthy attitude with his exes. Michael, who stands at the height of 6' 4¾" (1.95 m), is extremely close to his family and dearly loves his children.
Michael's bio suggests that he currently holds a net worth of $65 million, and as he also works as a TV presenter, his net worth is supposed to go way more in the future.
Wanda's ex-husband - who reportedly took home a pay cheque of $21.5 million in 2017 - is perhaps enjoying a peaceful time with his latest girlfriend: after the scandal of 2016 where a man named David Brown claimed to be Michael's son. But, that doesn't mean Wanda is living a life of isolation and loneliness.
In fact, she is leading a content life in the company of her three children and the family also loves taking vacations at frequent intervals.

Wanda is reportedly single at the moment and has shown no interest in having an active life. She could have given up on baseless relationships and might be looking for her children to get married soon so she can have grandkids.
