Oh no, brother! Everyone’s favorite blonde mom in clear heels, Linda Hogan, has filed for divorce from her wrestling star hubby of 24 years, Hulk Hogan. For four seasons, the pair, along with their kids Brooke and Nick, have lived out the ups and downs of famous family life – and marriage – on Hogan Knows Best. The couple has hinted at relationship troubles in the past and even attended couple’s counseling after the bickering got to be too much. Most recently, they’ve been dealing with Nick’s car accident, a crash that has left him facing legal charges (and his friend still in the hospital).
Though Linda filed for the split last Tuesday, she never told her hubby. The news reached the blogosphere – and Hulk – Friday evening. The St. Petersburg Times broke the news to him over the phone; daunted, he replied “Thank you for that great information.” After calling the reporter back five minutes later, Hulk (known to family and fans as Terry) said, “I’m kind of shocked. You caught me off-guard. My wife has been in California for about three weeks. … Holy smokes. Wow, you just knocked the bottom out of me. … I just pulled over to the side of the road for five minutes to find out what was going on here.”
Linda is reportedly asking for “an equitable split of assets” (the couple owns two Florida homes and have a Las Vegas condo under construction) as well as joint custody of 17-year old Nick, asking that he maintain a residence with her while Hulk getting “liberal visitation.” Her reps say she has no current comment on the split, but when she does, we’ll be listening. We imagine her soon to be ex-husband will be as well. [Image: Getty]
