(the Jints’ Strahan, possibly not looking at the Meadowlands jumbotron)
The Michael Strahan divorce trial turned into an episode of America’s Sleaziest Home Videos yesterday as it was revealed that the Giants star made a $30,000 payoff to his wife shortly after she caught him secretly videotaping her sister inside their home.
Jean Strahan, who said in court papers that the taping occurred while sister Denise was undressing, testified that her sack-machine hubby did his illicit filmmaking while they were living in East Stroudsburg, Pa., roughly two years before their 1999 marriage.
“I found, in our house, video equipment . . . and I learned he was taping my sister,” she said under questioning by her lawyer Ellen Marshall in Newark Family Court. “I moved out when I found the equipment.”
She added that a $30,000 deposit related to the taping was made by Strahan into a bank account that the North Dakota native kept in her home state.
Though I was skeptical at first, this is really shaping up to be a divorce trial for the ages. Thus far, Strahan’s been accused of profligate spending, a homosexual union with Dr. Ian Smith, a previously undisclosed liposuction treatment, and now, being a peeping tom.
As long as no one comes forward with anything really embarrasing, like say, the charge that Strahan is buddies with Tom Arnold, I’m sure the Giants DE will land on his feet.
