Hulk Hogan Ordered to Pay Estranged Wife $40,000 in Alimony
A Florida Judge has ruled that celebrity wrestler Hulk Hogan must pay his estranged wife, Linda Bollea, $40,000 a month in alimony while their divorce is pending. According to an Associated Press news report, the judge also allowed Hogan, whose real name is Terry Bollea, to take $500,000 out of the couple’s assets for himself and use up to $400,000 for legal fees in their son’s criminal case. Nick Bollea is serving an eight-month jail sentence for causing an auto accident that left a passenger severely injured.
The judge also allowed Hogan to proceed with buying a Las Vegas condominium, a transaction that was in motion before the divorce proceedings began. These are of course celebrity cases that involve a lot of money and are usually well-publicized. But normal alimony hearings in Pennsylvania involve ordinary people who are going through a very tough time in their lives.
Alimony is defined as the amount of payment by one spouse to another following a divorce. The amount depends on different circumstances such as employment, assets and number of years the couple has been married. It also depends upon the ruling of the family court.
