Linda Hogan Writes Tell-All Book About Her Marriage to Hulk Hogan
Linda Hogan pulls no punches in her tell-all book about abuse she claims she faced in her marriage with Hulk Hogan. INSIDE EDITION has the scoop.
Hulk Hogan's ex-wife Linda is coming forward with explosive allegations about the TV personality. She claims she endured years of domestic abuse at his hands, even saying, "I did not want to be a statistic like Nicole Simpson."
Linda Hogan says she actually feared Hulk Hogan would kill her, comparing herself to O.J. Simpson's murdered ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson.
"To this day he's never apologized for any of his actions," said Linda.
In her new book, Wrestling the Hulk: My Life Against the Ropes, Linda writes that during their 25-year marriage Hulk Hogan "Tore my shirt. He threw lamps. He held me down on the bed with his hands around my throat during arguments, slamming doors, pounding walls."
On the Today show Tuesday, Linda said drug use was to blame.
"Drugs were always around—prescribed. Wrestlers have always got injuries, you know. There was a constant flow of pain pills, anti-inflammatories and steroids. A lot of them did take steroids. Combined? It makes somebody...you don't know what you're dealing with," said Linda.
The Today show's Matt Lauer asked, "Did you contact the authorities?"
"I was afraid to say anything. Had I said something, the carpet would have been pulled up from underneath his career. I don't know what my kids would have done. They were little at the time. It's scary," she responded.
No comment from Hulk Hogan.
