Over the years, we have followed the dramatic lives of various wrestlers and the star in question today is no exception. Well, it’s time to find out if his life is just as dramatic when the cameras aren’t somewhere around the corner. It’s time to get the low down on Hulk Hogan’s brother, his daughter, wife and son.
Hulk Hogan’s Brother
There is a reason we do not hear much about Hulk Hogan’s brother, well in plain words the guy has been dead for quite some time now. His name was Allan Bollea, he was born on May 1947 and he died in April 1986 as a result of being shot twice in the back. So that officially concludes all the information there is out there on Hulk Hogan’s brother.
Hulk Hogan’s Daughter
Theirs is a family deeply rooted in showbiz, so it is no shocker that Brooke Hogan is famous in her own right. She was born Brooke Ellen Bollea on May 5, 1988 and she is well rounded as she is a reality television star, actress, singer, and media personality. Brooke got an early start on her music career and that opportunity translated into many more opportunities down the line.
It all started in 2002, when she began promoting her music career, Brooke and her father appeared in a one-hour special on VH1. It was widely received that it opened the door for the whole family to star in a reality TV series that focused as the then teenager’s struggle to make it in the music industry while dealing with an over protective father. The show was called Hogan Knows Best and it aired for 2005-2007.
Hogan Knows Best soon became Brooke Knows Best, when that venture was over she tried her hands on a little acting. Besides her on screen appearances, there is one highly controversial issue that brought Brooke into the spot light. Sometime in 2015, a recording of her father making some very weird statements surfaced.
In the part that had to do with Brooke, he described himself as her ideal husband and added that he would bring ‘Hulkamania’ on anyone who married his daughter. That is not an ideal way for a father to talk about his daughter, not at all, nevertheless, she responded by writing a poem in which she defended him.
Hulk Hogan’s Wife
Hulk has not only had one wife before, but he’s currently unto wife number two. He was first married to Linda Hogan who was formerly known as Linda Marie Claridge. You might remember her from some episodes of Hogan Knows Best. The two met back in the 80’s in Los Angeles, by 1983 they got married and it all seemed picture perfect.
They went on to have two children together and eventually they began to build their empire together, as her husband was easily the most beloved wrestler of the ’80s and for much of the ’90s. In 2007, their marriage hit the rocks and there is a very dramatic story behind it.
One of the main reasons that Linda filed for divorce was because of Hulk’s infidelity. It was actually quite shameful, a tape from Gawker showed Hogan sleeping with one of his best friend’s wives and after the tape surfaced, one of Brooke’s friend stepped forward with some shocking news of her own. She admitted that she was also involved in an affair with the wrestler.
Soon after all this Linda filed for divorce and Hulk found out about it from a reporter, who approached him and showed him the divorce papers. So he was actually caught by surprise. What followed was a very messy divorce battle.
Amidst the divorce battles with his ex wife, Hulk found solace in the arms of another and her name is Jennifer McDaniels. The two tied the knot when Jennifer was just 35 and he was 58, but that is not what most find weird about them. Apparently, McDaniels looks a lot like Brooke, Hogan’s daughter, but whatever rocks his boat right?
Hulk Hogan’s Son
His name is Nick Allan Bollea and he is an actor and reality TV star and he seems to be quite the trouble ‘child’. On August 26, 2007, he was involved in a car accident during which he crashed into a tree. To top it all up he was actually under the influence of alcohol while racing in his car.
To make the whole story more horrendous, there was someone in the passenger’s seat and as a result of the accident John Graziano, was seriously injured and is expected to require 24-hour-a-day care for the rest of his life. Nick spent 5 months in Pinellas County Jail as a consequence of his recklessness.
