Hulk Hogan isn’t going to take anymore crap from ex-wife Linda Bollea and is getting quite fed up with losing in the court room and the false accusations she is making about him.
Linda now fees a defamation lawsuit, filed by Terry Bollea, also known as “Hulk Hogan,” and things are getting really bad between the former couple.
Linda alleges that Hogan has physically abused her and is hiding his homosexuality after having an affair with a gay man.
The accusations are pretty serious and the pro-wrestler is ready for the ‘smack-down’ in the court of law.
LInda Bollea divorced Hogan in 2009 and continues to talk about her ex-husband on television and a recent book.
He claims that she lied about him in her autobiography and during a series of promotional interviews.
The lawsuit, filed Thursday in Clearwater, Fla., claims Linda Bollea wrote “Wrestling The Hulk: My Life Against the Ropes” to help revive her flagging career following their 2009 divorce, the St. Petersburg Times reported Friday.
Bollea alleged in the book that Hogan, real name Terry Bollea, physically and mentally abused her during their marriage, including dragging her by her hair and clothes and choking her.
“It scared me that he might just snap, not realize what he’s doing. He is just so strong,” she told FOX News Channel in June. “I thought he could kill me. He had his hands around my neck one time on the bed, and he started squeezing my throat. He just went into this trance, and I was looking at him and saying, ‘Terry, stop, stop. I can’t breathe.'”
In another interview, she alleged that Hogan had a homosexual relationship with a fellow wrestler.
Hogan, who denies the claims, is demanding a jury trial. He has also requested that the book, published by HarperCollins, be removed from sale, according to the report. HarperCollins is owned by News Corp., which also owns NewsCore and FOX News Channel.
The lawsuit comes two weeks after it was reported that Bollea received a little more than 70 percent of the couple’s liquid assets in the divorce settlement.
