Michael Strahan is NOT “begging” Kelly Ripa to give him back his co-hosting job on “Live,” despite a late and wrong tabloid report that Gossip Cop already debunked. We can once against bust this claim. We’re told it’s “absolutely not true.”

According to Star, the former NFL player deeply regrets his decision to join “Good Morning America” as a co-anchor and much preferred his old gig, where he played a more important role. “He thought he would have more control, more power and more influence, however it turns out that ‘Good Morning America’ is a fine-oiled machine,” says the outlet. The magazine further claims Strahan “finds that he actually has less input than he did on the ‘Live’ show,” and now “wishes he could get back on TV with Kelly.”

Only, Gossip Cop already corrected this bogus story when Star’s sister publication, the National Enquirer, also falsely claimed Strahan was “begging” to return to co-host “Live” alongside Ripa. Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to Strahan, who exclusively assured us the tabloid’s story was “absolutely not true.” We were told the TV personality is very happy with his new job at “Good Morning America,” and nothing has changed in the time since.
