Crocodile Dundee

Wife Files for Divorce ...

G'Bye Mate

Paul Hogan's wife and "Crocodile Dundee" co-star has filed to divorce her hubby of 23 years ... TMZ has learned.

Linda Hogan -- no, not her -- cites irreconcilable differences.  She wants spousal support, and joint legal and physical custody of their 15-year-old son, Chance.

As for money ... there will be a lot to divvy up ... Paul is worth a reported $20 mil.

Linda wants to erase any trace of being married to the "Crocodile Dundee" legend -- she wants her maiden name restored.

According to the docs the couple separated last month.  A rep for Paul says the split has been amicable. 

Hope it goes better than the divorce with his first wife, Noelene.  Paul married her, then divorced her, then remarried her.  When it finally blew up in 1986, it became one of Australia's ugliest celeb divorces ever.

There was certainly a sign trouble was brewing ... Paul and Linda sold their Malibu mansion last month to Chris Hemsworth.

Bottom line ... it's a crocodile done deal.

Wow - this is a big shock. They had one of the strongest and admired relationship in Hollywood after meeting in the widely successful movie - They were both beautiful to look at. I'm surprised TMZ did not put a big red box when for this post. Or is that reserved for the Kardashians and Lohans only?

No offense Linda, but your plastic surgery looks like it didn't go too well.

A lot of reports put his net worth closer to $150 million. He was hit with a $156 million dollar tax bill a few years ago and amazingly has earned $46million in the last year alone.

Whatever. He cheated, she broke up a marriage, they're both terrible people. I remember the interviews she gave when she was cheating with him.

This here folks, is KARMA at its best. He was married for over 20+ years with 7 kids when Miss thang came along. Yes, she's NOT ALL TO BLAME but they broke up a family, a very large one to be together. I'm surprised it too her this long to file for divorce, she was looking for stardom on the back of a VERY VERY SUCCESSFUL Australian comedian who hit it big in the U.S. with two movies then died off. She died off even faster. All that plastic surgery to keep her young and beautiful was to keep her husband from wandering off with another YOUNG WOMEN, she knew it, because she did it to his first wife. Now she has NO CAREER, never will, no one recognizes her on the street and she's now a nobody that had a few years of fame and died off. Yeah, she's filing for divorce because her husband is over the hill, didn't get her a huge career and she can't actually get a paying job unless it's minimum wage and she's not going to do that after 23 years. Noleene and your children, I hope you are laughing your fool bloody heads off. Good for you.
