After 24 years of marriage, his wife, Linda Marie Bollea, has filed for divorce.
Bollea, 46, filed divorce papers Tuesday in Pinellas County, records show. She has been married to Terry Gene Bollea, 53, more famously known as Hulk Hogan, since 1983 and the couple has two children, Brooke, 19, and Nick, 17.
Word of the split was first reported by WTVT, the FOX affiliate in Tampa.
According to the St. Petersburg Times, a Times reporter reportedly broke the news to Hogan on Friday night.
He thanked the reporter for the "great information" then called back five minutes later to say, "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."
Apparently, the whole thing is a publicity stunt to keep away from what there son, Nick Bollea is going through with the media.
