Linda Hogan is engaged to 21-year-old boyfriend Charlie Hill
We really don't know if we can claim Linda Hogan as a Tampa Bay semilebrity anymore, but we can claim being gobsmacked at the news the 50-year-old's apparently engaged to 21-year-old boyfriend Charlie Hill. Is she robbing the cradle or is he robbing the grave?
That bastion of all things truthful, the National Enquirer, says the pair plan to get hitched next summer on her new 50-foot boat, which she paid for with last July's settlement cash from ex-husband Hulk Hogan and promptly named "Alimoney." No, that's not a typo.
"The happier Linda gets with Charlie, the unhappier Hulk gets," a source tells the rag. Well of course he's unhappy; He wanted to be the one to remarry younger, since the 56-year-old Terry Bollea is engaged to his girlfriend, Jennifer McDaniel, who is 36.
We have no idea if the Enquirer is right or wrong, but it's not surprising. These are the kinds of trashy soap operas that come out of a multimillion-dollar agreement (the full amount has remained undisclosed). Daughter Brooke has had issues with Charlie before, and Hulk has intimated he wanted to go O.J. Simpson on Charlie and Linda both, so right about now son Nick is probably glad to be keeping under the radar.
