Hulk and Wife

Headed for Divorce Court

11/23/2007 9:13 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF


HulkTMZ has obtained a document from the Pinellas County Court website which states that Hulk Hogan's wife has filed for divorce.

According to the document, Linda Marie Bollea (Linda's married name) filed for divorce on Tuesday, November 20 against Terry Gene Bollea (the Hulk's legal name).

The document we have does not state the reason for the divorce. The news first appeared on WTVT, the FOX affiliate in Tampa Bay, Fla.

By now you know that last August, their son Nick Hogan crashed his Supra, and his passenger/good friend remains in a vegetative state. Prosecutors have filed reckless driving charges against Nick.

It's a real shame you can tell they really do love each other & have tried everything. But it comes a time in your life where you have to stop pretending for the other spouses sake and deal with the real issues at hand. You never know she might end up finalizing the divorce to realize she will not be as happy alone as she had originally thought. And if things play out correctly they might end up back together. Even though neither would ever admit that at this point. One can only hope resentment doesn't cause permanent damage. Hoping for the Best~

Once again-the rich get away with murder! I believe that she is seeking a divorce so she does not end up poor-I do not think it is a ploy! Time for the family to take total responsibility for this accident and Nick needs to serve a mandatory sentence in jail.

Comment # 2 has it right. This is all a money ploy. They know a big judgment in on the way. Smart move to save and stash some cabbage. At least the punk-boy is off the streets. I live in the area that kid raced on!

sorry to hear the news hulk, maybe she was a golddigger and maybe she was not. But it takes two to take a divorce, maybe if they both tried harder in the marriage counseling it could have worked out, but its not to late .Hulk if you really love her go after her. Linda if you really love him than work it outwhat ever it takes, marriage is a important thing in your life. Grass isnt greener on the other side. Maybe also if you hadn't given everthing to your children and had them earn everything maybe you wouldn't blame one another for everything.

Hi

Florida has some very tricky/powerfull laws that protect people's "Retirement Accounts", which is the reason O.J. Simpson moved out of California after he lost the civil trial to the Goldmans. There is no way the "Hulksters" are not trying to protect their funds from the family of that poor guy who got seriously busted up in the son's car crash.

Linda was not a very attractive figure on the show. She wears too much makeup, i feel like she is trying to hide who she really is, if in fact she knows that. Now she is the manager of Brook? Big mistake. Linda needs to start her own life and get a job. Brook singing career I am not sure is going to really take off - Linda and Terry should have sent these kids to school for a back up plan. Just because your dad was a wrestler doesn't make your talent any better. I mean really, what does Nick do? This whole family needs counseling!

Linda has done all she can. The rest of the family seems to have moved on without her and they don't act like they care. Brooke talks back to her and whines, Nick is busy chasing dreams and girls and Terry does what he wants whether or not it'll hurt the family. I think Linda is better off doing her own thing.

Lets see here 1 of em is a so called singer now her 60 sumthin stripper mom is her manager can u say mom and daughter porn stars? Now nick mr I can't pull my pants up i'm a stud in my own mind thing wanna be drift racer better stick wiff dad cause the pornos he's gonna have to do he may not like. Hulk give her the 50% even though she has done nothing to deserve it cause she sure wasn't teaching the children while you were out wrestling. Wait guy in tights rollin around on a mat with another guy for a living maybe I was wrong nick may like the porno life too.

Linda is TRASH. All she is good for is sitting on her butt and wearing too much make up. She is a big time gold digger!

Hulkster, I feel bad Daddy for what's happenin.
I'm wearin my tie dyed purple outfit brother cause everybody wants to know
what the Superstar is wearin.
I've flexed the pythons and my mirror says I'm the reflection of perfection, Daddy.
Hulkster I think you have got to go to the river bottom, Daddy,
And chain yourself there for 40 days and 40 nites to get her spell off of you.
Then you won't be like cherry pie, brother in your insides,
You'll be like the Superstar, twisted steel and sex appeal, baby..
I'd put her in the Superstar Bearhug, but that's your call, Daddy..
Remember, I'm the man of the hour, to sweet to be sour, baby.

I THINK LINDA'S AFTER FAME & FORTUNE. BECAUSE, SHE WAS ALWAYS WANTING TO SPEND ALL KINDS OF MONEY ON THE SHOW,& HULK WOULDN'T LET HER TO SAVE MONEY. BECAUSE, HE WAS NO LONGER WRESTLING ON A REGULAR BASIS& SHE NEVER HAS WORKED,BUT SHE WAS ALWAYS QUICK TO SPEND ALL HIS MONEY. NOW, SHE FEELS LIKE SHE'LL GET ALOT OF MONEY, WITHOUT HIM THERE TO TELL HER NO. I DON'T THINK SHE DESERVES ANY ALIMONY, NICK DESERVES CHILD SUPPORT TO PAY TO THE COURTS ,& TO THE PERSON HE INJURED IN HIS THOUGHTLESS CAR CRASH. THAT'S ALSO NOT HULK'S PROBLEM, IT'S NICK'S. I'D MAKE HIM PAY FOR EVERYTHING ON HIS OWN. FOR, LINDA, SHE JUST NEEDS TO GO ON . SHE DOESN'T EVEN HAVE A REASON FOR THE DIVORCE. ONLY THAT SHE'S MONEY HUNGRY, & SHE DOESN'T WANT TO WORK FOR IT. THERE' MY COMMENT'S. I'M FOR THE HULKSTER, 4- LIFE!!!!! COME BACK TO WRESTLING, HULK. DON'T GIVE HER NOTHING, YOU EARNED IT! MAKE HER EARN HER OWN MONEY!

Lots of parents make mistakes in raising their children ..no one is exempt from them .. these people are just in the public eye and can be scrutinized for theirs.. we all live in glass homes..

They are going through enough with the divorce, and yes their marital problems started long before the accident nick had .. I truely don't believe it had anything to do with any legal stradegy..

I feel for this family.. they're going through some hard times with the turmoil of being in the public eye, going through a divorce is hard.. not just on the adults but the children as well if not more so.. and with Nicks accident .. and the scrutiny from public doesn't help..

I wish them well.. They have great children.. Nick made a mistake that most boys his age make.. He has to own up to it and pay for what he's done.. as far as the parents .. they are good, loving parents who might have over indulged the children ... That doesn't make them horrible parents..

As a parent myself, you want your child to have the best .. or to make it better than it was when you were a child.. to make it easier .. if that's a crime.. then most of us that are parents are guilty.. this is a family that is a little more fortunate than most and in the public eye.. Let them be.. they don't need nasty remarks made about them.. nor anyone judging them..

My prayer are with you, Hogan family and with the Grazianos

AFTERTHEFACT    

I dont think shes ugly at all, sometimes she needs to tone down the makeup i agree, but her and brooke are very beautiful. Second i dont think its fair to call her a bad mother because Brooke turned out very sweet and respectful ( so it seems) and so did Nick. Nick and Brooke are still young and their making bad decisions as every teen i know does ( i would kno! im 17!) and im not trying to be politically correct because i HATE when people are. But you now what? its true. I've made some horrible decisions in my life, bad enough to cost our family money and e.t.c. My parents were good people and tried their best. So don't go and judge them okay? If you were in the public eye, they'd sure as hell air all your dirty @$$ laundry and we would all poke fun at you. Now whos perfect?
