TMZ reports Jean Muggli “was taken into custody Friday night in New York City and booked for criminal contempt.” The problem? TMZ reports Muggli was “arrested for violating an order of protection involving an ex who claimed she was being terrorized by the woman.”
According to TMZ, the ex-girlfriend is named Marianne Ayer.
Marianne had filed legal docs in June accusing Jean of grand larceny, disorderly conduct, harassment, coercion and forcible touching. Marianne claimed in the legal docs Jean took her son’s plastic gun which he used in a student film and threatened her, claiming the gun was real. Marianne went on to claim Jean abused her pets by allegedly shoving and kicking her German Shepherd.
Muggli previously made headlines for her custody battle with Strahan regarding the ex-couple’s daughters. In March of 2020, TMZ reported Strahan accused Muggli of “abusing their kids.” But in November of last year, the New York Post’s Page Six reported “those claims were dismissed on Oct. 13 with the exes settling on a shared custody arrangement, according to court papers filed in New Hanover County (N.C.) District court.” Strahan had been seeking custody of the girls to live with him in New York City.
Jean — who had been living with the teens in North Carolina — agreed to get an Upper West Side apartment so that the twins can attend their separate posh Manhattan private schools where they will finish out high school, the court documents say. Michael — who also lives on the UWS — will split custody with Jean and their daughters will alternate weeks living with each parent, the court agreement shows.
