Hulk Hogan is a certified legend who has dominated two eras with his 24-inch pythons. He is loved by many for the memories he created over the decades, and hated for not sharing the spotlight and his exaggeration of certain events to benefit himself—among other reasons.
Love him or hate him, we all had to be hurting a bit over Hulk Hogan's personal life, as he's been through his son's infamous car accident that left Nick's friend with severe injuries that would leave him forever living in a nursing home.
The emotional trauma of the incident, which resulted with Nick indicted, would take a turn for the worse with Hogan's now ex-wife filing for divorce weeks later.
By now you all know how everything transpired, but here's a refresher: Hulk Hogan first had an affair with Christiane Plante, who had worked with his daughter on her 2006 album.
Linda files for divorce because of the affair, but Hulk stopped looking like a bad guy after Linda then started dating her son's friend Charlie Hill, who was 19 at the time.
Obviously, the decision to date a friend of her kid's who attended the same school was a poor and tasteless decision to make—more so while in the process of divorce.
We watched the news and saw the drama unfold before our eyes, but we never knew the exact details over the money split.
We all had a feeling that Hulk Hogan was the one who ended up on the losing end of the divorce, as we saw the houses put up for sale and Hogan appearing to lose more.
According to The St. Petersburg Times, new details emerged to show that Hulk indeed was the loser of the divorce. Linda received more than 70 percent of the couple's liquid assets and 40 percent ownership stake in Hulk's companies.
She also she received a $3 million property settlement. Linda got $7.44 million from the couple's investment accounts.
Hulk only got $2.97 million from whatever remained of the investment accounts. He had to put many of his homes up for sale in order to pay the $1.45 million he owes to his ex-wife.
He also lost the majority of his cars such as a Mercedes-Benz, a Corvette, a Cadillac Escalade and a Rolls-Royce.
There is a silver lining for Hogan, as he does have some of his cars remaining, keeps any money he earns from personal appearances and will not have to pay alimony.
Yet, it's clear to see that it was not a 50/50 type of deal, as Hogan lost more then gained.
Roughly 26 years of marriage is pretty long for anyone, but if we can learn anything from this situation it's to get an prenuptial agreement.
A prenuptial agreement is the perfect way to prevent either side from getting screwed, and can really make the aftermath of a divorce better and more even.
So all you readers: say your prayers, take your vitamins and set up a prenuptial agreement. You will never go wrong!
