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.

This old shriveled up c*.nt should be thankful that the Today Show was even interested in what she had to say. Anyone who watched that pathetic reality show saw what went on in that marriage. Linda spent money like a sailor and thought she was better and smarter than everyone else. Her constant put-downs of Terry were sad. She picked on him and made fun of him all the time -- it was like watching Khate Grosselin go after Jon -- only Linda is 50 times uglier.

Did the kids see the abuse going down? If you were being abused the time to talk is to a cop while you have marks on ya. If your going to accuse him do it in front of a jury of his peers, not the tabloids.

Prrof that LINDA CLARIDGE IS A LIER!!!
Real story- she was driving her car in Florida. Linda called POLICE to say that Terry was in his car stalking her, and that she had restraining order on him. Police that day pulled Terry over in his car,checked and found out there was NEVER a restraining order against Terry. So thats Linda's 1st Lie to Police!! Police asked her when she was driving in her car "Where is your husband now?" Linda said" He is in the car in FRONT of me. I Just Seen him Now for the 1st time today". Police told her " you just seen him for 1st time today. HE is in car in front of YOU, And Your Behind Him- He cant be stalking you" 2ND LIE she told Police that day!
Bottom line How can anyone believe anything she says when She told POLICE 2 lies in 1 conversation!!! Thats only 1 story of what Linda C is like!!

It doesn't surprise me that this sort of thing happened behind closed doors. Why would they bring it up during the taping of their show either? Alot of women don't say anything because there is a financial reality to deal with if he is out of the picture. It would've ruined his career and affected the financial status of her and the kids. When he was good he was good and when he was bad he was very bad. I know too many families that went through this. 1 out of 3. No one discusses it because then every damn body has advice and criticism yet doesn't offer any solutions, nor do they walk in your shoes. And if you fight back, the cops take YOU to jail. The kids are left to deal with the aftermath. Women need to stop criticizing men and those men who batter need help. We as a society need to offer solutions not criticism. And everybody needs to stop be antagonistic during their heated battles. Just walk away when the adrenaline starts to pump. And yes, she wrote the book to get money, so what. Just don't buy it.

The time to talk about domestic violence is right after it occurs. Not years later after a bitter divorce. This woman is no longer relevant.

Was anyone asking about the drama she had years ago?? Who the hell would air their dirty laundry and dig up the drama for no reason? She is just looking for a paycheck and it's sad that she would try to ruin his name and put a bad light on her childrens father just to sell a book. Pathetic. Even if the alligations were true, who asked? It's in the past and if she wanted to press charges she could have done it years ago, now it's just malicious.
