Those people who don't know Linda Hogan must be living under a rock as she is the wife of pre-eminent wrestler Hulk Hogan and what is more interesting is their high profile divorce which broke the headline in 2009.
Linda also has her celebrity profile through her appearance in a various reality show and Talk shows. Recently Linda is in the limelight for her affair with her boyfriend Charlie Hill as it seems their relationship has reached its peak and has hit the rough patch.
Personal Life: Married, Husband, and Divorce Settlement!
Linda has had a pretty awful past regarding her relation. She was previously in connection with Hulk Hogan, who is a big name in the Wrestling field and mostly known for his WWE career.
Linda met Hulk in a restaurant in Los Angeles. After a long-distance romance of 2 years, they finally married in the year 1983. They were together for almost 25 years and had two children: Brooke (1988) and Nick (1990) from their long marriage.
Furthermore, news of Hulk Hogan cheating on Linda was revealed after Gawker released a video of Hulk sleeping with his best friend's wife.
The Hulk Hogan Vs. Gawker scandal blew up in media a while back after Gawker released a video of Hogan having sex with the wife of his then-pal Bubba the Love Sponge while he was married to Linda. And while he successfully sued Gawker for over $100 Million in charges for breaching his privacy, the most pain was felt by his children and ex-wife, who had to deal with the pain of infidelity.
"My kids to this day are still reeling, and they can't get their feet back on planet earth. I can't get my life back on track either. I don't know, what am I supposed to do? Start over now that I'm 57? I don't know where I fit in in this world anymore."
Linda, on the other hand, believed he doesn't deserve a single penny from the $100 million. She further talked about how Hulk ruined his family and scarred his children and stated that she didn't plan to forgive Hulk ever saying,
“YOU have single handedly ruined our 25-year marriage and our family ... my trust, my love, my future, our future family with grandchildren, holidays, weddings, our kids' lives, homes, their ability to trust, our poor animals, friends, neighbors, your career, finances, trademarks, retirement, your legacy, your reputation, your health ... even your soul ... You lost it ALL. You took me for granted and never appreciated me or our beautiful family ... blaming me for your horrendous mistakes. And yet you continue in life this very way, still ... Hiding behind those sunglasses, false smile, oh ... and the bandana! Until you can really apologize, to me ... and to our children ... I will never ever forgive you.”

Linda, after her divorce, made a settlement and sought 70 percent of Hulk assets. Her ex-husband and also agreed to give his ex-wife 40 percent ownership of his companies as well as more than 70 percent of their liquid assets.
Though Linda did go through a rough time at least, she made sure she got paid what she deserved and moved on with her then-boyfriend Charlie Hill.
But in 2018, Lind had to knock on the doors of the court as her ex-husband allegedly hid his asset and refused to pay her 40 percent ownership of his companies.
Linda Hogan Issues With Her Boyfriend: Dating
According to news published in the Daily Mail, it is reported that Linda and her young boyfriend relation also did not go well as her young boyfriend sued her for $1.5 million. The duo began dating in 2008 when Linda was 48-years-old, and Charlie was 19-years-old. The couple broke up in May of 2012 after roughly four years together.
Now 28 years old, Charlie claimed that Linda had him fertilize 25 acres of avocado trees, dig a creek, watch the yacht, pull reeds from the lake, and work in construction and landscaping.
The reason for their split is probably the lousy behavior Linda did to her ex-boyfriend. As on a statement he gave to tmz.com in 2014, he said;
"SHE TREATED ME LIKE A DAY LABORER"

After Linda broke off with Charlie, Linda is not linked up with any other guys as per the report.

Well, the reality star was pulled over at Malibu, and when tested for her blood-alcohol level, it was revealed as .084. She was put on the spot by the cops to admit two charges of DUI. Linda came up with an eyewitness, who proved that she had only had a glass of wine, but a medical advice antibiotic elevated the effects of alcohol.
Eventually, she was let go but was slapped three years of probation alongside three months of alcohol education classes.
