What Linda Wants From Hubby Hulk In The Divorce
Hulk Hogan's estranged wife Linda is seeking half of the couple's more than $9.5 million in assets, including a share of the value of their Bel Air mansion. In her divorce filing, Linda Bollea, who appeared with her husband [real name: Terry Bollea] and their children during four seasons of VH1's reality series Hogan Knows Best, calls the 24-year marriage "irretrievably broken," the St. Petersburg Times reports.
Citing the divorce petition filed in Florida's Pinellas Pasco Circuit Court, the newspaper says Linda wants to share parental responsibility for their son Nick, 17, with whom she hopes will live with her while husband has "liberal" visitation rights. The couple's eldest child, daughter Brooke, 19, is not legally subject to child support requirements.
Linda also seeks an unspecified amount in alimony and child support from the wrestler, as well as health insurance for Nick, who has been charged with reckless driving in a car crash in August in Clearwater in which Nick's passenger was severely injured. (Authorities just released tapes of the 911 calls reporting the accident they can be heard at TMZ.com).
As for money, Linda is seeking to split the couple's assets, which include the 17,000-square-foot Bel Air mansion where the family primarily lives and a 3,474-square-foot home in Clearwater Beach, Fla., as well as a condo under construction in Las Vegas. The two existing homes alone are worth nearly $9.5 million, the petition says.
