Wrestler Hogan says Linda Bollea's claims he had gay affairs are insane

Hulk Hogan sues ex-wife over gay claim
12 December 2011

Wrestler Hulk Hogan is suing his ex-wife for claiming he is gay in her autobiography and branded the allegation 'insane'.

The 18-page defamation lawsuit claims Linda Bollea wrote Wrestling the Hulk – My Life Against the Ropes to help revive her career. She wrote that her husband abused her during their marriage and had homosexual encounters.

Hogan – real name Terry Bollea – 58, said the claims have harmed his reputation. He's demanding a jury trial and a halt to his ex-wife's comments. He says she has also made claims during promotional interviews on national television.

He told US Weekly magazine: 'After the four-year crazy divorce I thought I'd heard everything in the courtroom. Then, all of a sudden, she says I abused her, that I was violent. She told everybody I was a homosexual.'

Linda Bollea, 64, received more than 70% of the couple's assets in their recent divorce settlement.
