  • Hulk Hogan as filed a counter-petition to his wife’s divorce suit earlier today contesting his wife’s custody and alimony claims. Contacted by the St Petersburg Times, Hogan’s attorney, Ann Loughridge Kerr declined to comment. Apart from seeking an unspecified amount of money and child support, Linda Bollea is also seeking custody of Nick, who’s still only 17 years of age. In her claim, she said she will accept that Hulk – real name Terry Bollea – can have “liberal visitation” with his son. In the counter-claim, Hogan said that his wife is more than capable of supporting herself while their son Nick is old enough to decide with whom he wants to live. Meanwhile the same newspaper published a long story with eyewitnesses accounts, evidence filed by police and other information that will surely make the Hogan’s look worse than ever.
