Meet Linda Hogan, also known as Linda Bollea, the soon to be ex-wife of wrestler Hulk Hogan. See photos, video, and a biography of Linda here.
Linda Bollea, also known as Linda Hogan, is in the news as she has recently filed for divorce from her husband, former wrestler Hulk Hogan, also known as Terry Bollea. The Hulk was completely caught off guard to hear that his wife Linda had filed for divorce, which she apparently did last Tuesday. He told the St. Petersburg Times that he was “kind of shocked” by the news and that Linda had been in California the last three weeks.
As a biography, Linda Bollea, (born Linda Marie Claridge on August 24, 1959 in Miami, Florida), met Terry Bollea at a restaurant in Los Angeles. They would have a long distance relationship for over two years before marrying on December 18, 1983. She and Terry have two children – Brooke, born in 1988 and Nick, who was born in 1990. She co-stars alongside her family in the VH1 reality TV show, Hogan Knows Best.
Their son Nick was involved in a serious car accident on August 26, 20007. He was reportedly driving 70 mph in a 40 mph zone and the passenger of his car was seriously injured in the accident. He sustained major head trauma and will be confined to a nursing home the rest of his life. Nick was released from the hospital virtually unscathed. On November 7th, Nick turned himself in to authorities and was charged with reckless driving involving serious bodily injury (a felony), being under the age of 21 while having a blood alcohol level of .02 or higher, use of a motor vehicle in commission of a felony, and illegal window tint. Witnesses have said that Nick was street racing just prior to the crash.
A video, Vehicular Lunatics, has surfaced of Linda Bollea Hogan (see the video below) pronouncing her love for street racing. “Oh, I love it. I love it. The rush, the speed on the road, stereo blasting, heart-pounding, racing in between all the cars, dodging the cops. It’s awesome.”
