Secret of Hulk Hogan’s net worth and married life

Terry Gene Bollea a.k.a. Hulk Hogan is a semi-retired wrestler. But, he is as much a wrestler as he is a musician, an actor, an entrepreneur, and also a television personality. He gained fame in the 90s and the 80s when he was known as Hulk Hogan in the World Wrestling Federation (WWF, now WWE) and even in the Hollywood.

Bollea married, Linda Claridge back in December the 13th 1983. This couple had 2 children: son Nick born on July 27 1990 and the daughter Brooke born in May 5 1988. Hogan is well known also for his show called Hogan Knows Best which made everyone familiar with not just him but his wife and 2 children too.  

As per the interview on the National Enquirer, there was a claim by Christiane Plante back in 2007 that Hogan had an affair with her. 33 at that time, Christiane had worked with Brooke Hogan before.

As a consequence to this, Linda filed for a divorce in Pinellas County, Florida in November 20 2007. It was in 2008 that she announced in public that she wanted to end her relation with Hogan. Hogan, in his autobiography has stated that Linda often used to accuse Hogan of being unfaithful; however he used to deny every one of those. The divorce settlement left Hogan with a mere 30% of his total liquid assets amounting up around $10 million. Hogan was at the brink of committing a suicide as a result of this loss but didn’t actually do it for which he thanks Laila Ali, a co-star on American Gladiators.        

Jennifer McDaniel is the person Hogan is with right now since early 2009. They were engaged to each other back in 2009 and married each other on the December 14 2010 in Clearwater, Florida.

On the September of 2008, it was revealed that Bollea’s net worth was well over $30 milllion but in September 2011, he revealed that his lifestyle and more importantly his divorce cost him hundreds of millions of dollars nearly making him broke. His current net worth is estimated to be around $8 million.

In an interview with The Sun in 2007, Bollea said that he was planning up his very own federation to go head to head against WWF. He said he had already raised $40 million of the total $80-$100 million range. He believed his venture would be something that would reshape the professional wrestling world. Hulk Hogan, "Hollywood" Hulk Hogan, Hulkster, Hogan Knows Grillin, Hulkamania.com, and Hulkapedia.com were Bollea’s company’s which he transferred all trademarks to Hogan Holdings Limited. All of this added to his net worth.  

Later, Hogan became a distributor for a multi-level marketing company called Visalus which he encountered as he went on looking for business opportunities outside of wrestling. Hogan also supports the American Diabetes Association.
