Hulk Hogan, Wife Settle Divorce

USMagazine, Tuesday, July 28, 2009, 8:16am (PDT)
  • Hulk Hogan and his wife have finally reached a settlement in their divorce case.

    At a brief 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 were not made public. (In 2008 court filings, the couple's net worth was listed at between $26 million and $32 million.)

    Before the 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 Tuesday was a stark contrast to the months of bitter feuding.

    The two -- who have two kids, Brooke and Nick -- had clashed 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, who wed Hogan in 1983, 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."
