Hulk Hogan and OJ Simpson were this close to being blood-brothers from another mother. Lucky for the Hulkster’s wife, Linda, it didn’t end up that way.
In the new issue of Rolling Stone, Hulk Hogan goes off on his wife Linda Bollea, 48, for leaving him for “some shaggy-haired pool boy 30 years her junior.”
“I could have turned everything into a crime scene, like OJ, cutting everybody’s throat,” says Hogan, 55. (Simpson was acquitted of killing his ex wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ronald Goldman in 1995.)
On Apr. 9, Hogan appeared in court to request that a judge prohibit Bollea from allowing her boyfriend, Charlie Hill, to drive his and Bollea’s cars and boat, claiming that Hill exposes Hogan’s family to a tremendous amount of liability because he has a history of traffic violations. (An attorney for Bollea claims that Hogan’s request is a ploy to control her and Hill’s love life.)
“You live half a mile from the 20,000-square-foot home you can’t go to anymore, you’re driving through downtown Clearwater [Florida] and see a 19-year-old boy driving your Escalade, and you know that a 19-year-old boy is sleeping in your bed, with your wife…” Hogan tells Rolling Stone.
“I totally understand OJ. I get it.”
Bollea, 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.”
