Michael Strahan has never shied away from dismissing gossipers, but in a new interview for HBO’s Real Sports, the former football star turned morning talk show host discusses exactly what rumors specifically bother him most. Say, stories about him being gay in addition to beating or cheating on women. Yeah, I can imagine that’d be problematic for a guy not into any of that.
Here’s how Michael broke down exactly what aspects of the annoying rumor mill irk him with show host Bryant Gumbel:
“The worst of it?”
“I think early on when you’re reading all these things in the paper that aren’t true — I’m not an adulterer. I’m not gay. I mean, I didn’t beat anybody.”
