Nicole Murphy and Live! with Kelly and Michael co-host, Michael Strahan, have called off their 5-year engagement. Strahan was reportedly blindsided by her public announcement, which coincided with his induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
New reports are now surfacing that Murphy decided to reveal their split when she did because it was when she found out he had been cheating on her despite reports she did it on the same day as his induction due to spite.
TMZ reports she first heard of his alleged infidelity last month, but got some sort of confirmation on it on Friday.
She has since told fans she’s “good” with an Instagram picture of herself working in the Bahamas. “Long work day… I’m good 😉 #redbottoms #nicolemurphy #bahamas,” she wrote.

Sources say the couple has been on the rocks for weeks, and their relationship hasn’t been the same since he took the Live! gig and started living a bi-coastal lifestyle.
According to Hip Hop Hollywood, her rep said of their split, “They love each other very much, but with the distance and work schedule it has been hard to maintain the relationship.”
