Hulk Hogan & Linda Hogan Reach Settlement In Divorce Case
Hulk Hogan and his estranged wife, Linda Bollea Hogan, have finally reached a settlement in their divorce case. Read more on the Hogan divorce below.
At the hearing Tuesday morning in Clearwater, Fla., Hogan, 55, and his wife Linda announced that they’ve agreed to the terms of the split.
“We’ve reached a marital settlement agreement,” Ray Rafool, Linda’s attorney, told the judge.
The terms of the divorce settlement were not made public but the couple’s net worth was listed at between $26 million and $32 million.
Before the court proceedings began, Hulk, whose real name is Terry Bollea, and Linda were spotted smiling, according to a local ABC affiliate. At one point, she even kissed his cheek.
“The war is over,” Linda said after the hearing.
Hogan echoed her sentiments, telling the Tampa Tribune: “When you’re married to someone for 23 years … you hope for the best …. We just got torn apart.”
The courtroom scene today was a major contrast to their past months of bitterness between the couple.
The Hogans have two adult children, Brooke and Nick, and had argued over everything from money to Linda allowing her younger boyfriend to drive the couple’s vehicles. In April, Hulk even remarked to Rolling Stone: “I totally understand OJ. I get it. I could have turned everything into a crime scene, like OJ, cutting everybody’s throat.”
Linda and Hogan married in 1983, and Linda filed for divorce in November 2007. A newspaper reporter broke the news that his wife was divorcing him. “Holy smokes,” he said upon hearing the news. “Wow, you just knocked the bottom out of me.”
