Hulk Hogan isn’t done with ex-wife Linda Bollea yet. On Thursday (Dec. 8) the pro-wrestler turned reality star filed suit in Clearwater, Fla., accusing his ex of defamation.
In a 2011 book, Bollea claims that Hogan physically, mentally and emotionally abused her:
“[Hulk] tore my clothes, threw lamps, and held me down on the bed with his hands around my throat during arguments,” she writes. She also accuses Hogan of cheating on her with a male wrestler who goes by the name Brutus Beefcake.
“He’s being accused of all sorts of vile conduct that he did not commit,” Hogan’s attorney Will Florin tells Us Weekly. “Miss Bollea’s made enough of these outrageous allegations that it’s time they stop … The only realistic way of making them stop is through the court system.”
Hogan remarried in 2010.
