Linda Hogan filed for divorce and failed to tell her husband.
The St. Petersburg Times reported that Hulk Hogan had no idea his wife had filed for divorce until a reporter informed him that Pinellas County court records showed the paperwork was submitted Tuesday.
“Thank you for the great information,” the wrestler told the reporter, PEOPLE reports. He then reportedly 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.”
The couple’s 24-year marriage has been documented in the VH1 reality-TV series “Hogan Knows Best,” also starring their two children, Brooke and Nick. Recent episodes show the couple attending marital counseling.
The Hogan family has made headlines recently as the couple’s son, Nick, faces a felony charge for driving recklessly in August when his car went out of control and slammed into a tree. His license has since been suspended.
