Linda Hogan: I Was Afraid Hulk Was Gonna Kill Me!

6/28/2011 10:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Hulk Hogan's ex-wife Linda Hogan says she lived in constant fear while married to the wrestler -- claiming he would become so consumed in violent rages ... she thought he would kill her.

Linda sat down with Matt Lauer on the "Today Show" to talk about her autobiography -- "Wrestling the Hulk: My Life Against the Ropes" -- in which she details Hulk's alleged violent behavior.

She writes, "[Hulk] tore my shirt. He threw lamps. He held me down on the bed with his hands around my throat during arguments, slamming doors, pounding walls. I was always afraid he would kill me in one of his rages."

When Matt asked if Hulk ever showed remorse for his actions -- Linda replied, "He did not feel remorse — and to this day he’s never apologized for any of his actions."

Calls to Hulk weren't returned.

He should have! Why doesn't she change her name back to her maiden name or call herself Linda Bolea. No she goes by Linda Hogan. You wanted a divorce go make your own way in life! Women and men, have some respect for yourselves. You don't want to be married? Don't take your spouses money, go earn some yourselves. I don't care what the law states. if you want to move on with your life then don't put your hand in someone elses pocket!

I live in Seminole, very close to where Hulk raised his family in Clearwater, and coincidentally also less that 1 mile from where Randy Savage died and less than 1000 feet from Randy's house!
Anyway, it is common knowledge in this area that Hulk's son Nick is an idiot. Brooke seems decent enough. Hulk is watched constantly by stalkers. AND, Linda is a useless, arrogant, lying piece of trash who never did anything good or successful in her life other than sinking her claws into Hulk Hogan. She should just put one of Cody Rhodes' bags over her head and spare us having to gaze upon her ugliness which goes to the bone.
Hulk deserves a MEDAL for putting up with her for so long.

this woman is a venomous lie spewing canker soar.. im from the area they lived in while married and believe me when i say she has all of this literally backwards... ask some of her ex employees, neighbors, and those that see her in public on a regular basis. she treats everyone she comes into contact with like we owe her something. like the world is her servants quarters. she is a verbally abusive, alcoholic, pillhead, cokewhore... all the pills she talked about are for her consumption. the drugs coming around where her "party pals". Linda, may you rot in the cesspool of your own vag...

I guess she and her little toddler needed some cash, so she is trying to stir up publicity for her "book" psssh.

Meredith Baxter wrote about abuse with her husband David Birney whom she claimed physically and emotionally abused her. That said, her children and co star Michael Gross confirmed the abuse. I really admire her for comig out and for admiting the abuse, its a true shame for all woman if Linda is crying wolf.

Do you notice how she says and that is in my book. She is just trying to make money. What a low down nut. Hulk you dont have to try to defend yourself. anybody can see she trying to sell a book on garbage.

She was afraid for her life and for her children, BUT she didn't contact the cops because, well... that might impact his career, and well, you know... Mama can't bake if there's no dough. You know, first things first.

Come On, really? If this was true Hulk would have to be one hell of an actor, but anyone who has seen Hulk act would know he is hopeless. Stupid bitch wore the pants in that relationship, watch Hogan Knows Best, plus dont you think their two kids would have witnessed something? She is an attention seeking, money grubbing ho! How long have they been seperated/divorced, and now she announces to the world! Add it together people, it adds up to $$$$$$$$.
