"As crazy as that sounds to say, I wish I was still with my wife," Usmagazine quoted Hogan as telling Access Hollywood''s Maria Menounos. Others saw the divorce as being a ploy to protect their assets from a lawsuit that was filed by the family of the boy permanently injured in their son Nick Bollea''s car wreck, making Hogan deny the rumours.
"If this is a ploy, her being intimate with a 19-year-old kid is pretty good acting," Hogan said. "For me to be able to handle… my 50-year-old wife sleeping in a bed with a 19-year-old boyfriend and using my gym, and driving my cars, and living in my house. I guess we've got a pretty good act going on 'cause that's a lot to take on," he stated.
According to Hogan, the divorce was Bollea''s idea, and the two have ever since been engaged in a messy legal war. "It wasn't an argument, it was, 'Hey, I don't love you, I don't want to be with you, I don't want to see you anymore.' It was the real deal," Hogan told Menounos. "Without a doubt, this one is the most formidable opponent I've ever run into.
"You talk about dirty tricks: Brass knuckles, steel knuckles, cheap shots, tripping people up. I've never seen anybody in the wrestling business that has more dirty tricks than she does! I guess I taught her well," he added. Hogan was asked how long the divorce proceedings would continue, and he stated that it was a simple case.
"This is a simple divorce – there's no custody, there's just a big pile of junk that we've accumulated. We should split it," Hogan told Menounos. "But my wife''s lawyer has told different magazines there's gonna be a war. This is the money that I saved for my family, and money that Linda could walk away with, money that I saved for my children, that they're just, they"re just wasting (it) and burning (it) up," he concluded
