Linda, Hulk Hogan fight over maintenance man



As if Linda and Hulk Hogan didn't have enough to fight over in their bitter divorce case, they've begun a battle over a maintenance worker. It seems employee George Cruz was supposed to work at Linda's Willadel Drive mansion in Clearwater and Hulk was supposed to pay for it as part of a temporary split of homes and expenses, but the Hulkster has the nerve to make George do things for him, too.

Linda's lawyers filed a motion, to be heard at 11:30 a.m. Thursday, that says Hulk has been making "unreasonable requests," like asking Cruz to come to his Clearwater Beach home on Eldorado Avenue and do extra tasks, like helping Hulk's girlfriend move in and summoning Cruz to his house several times a day while Hulk was out of town so that Cruz could walk the girlfriend's dogs. Wow, it's almost like Cruz is getting paid to do things, sort of like a job. No wonder Linda doesn't like it.

Of course, Linda also says Hulk is using George as a spy, to inform him of comings and goings in Linda's house. Her court filing also says Hulk quit paying Cruz and housekeeper Veronica Secundino, and Linda had to pay them out of the paltry $40,000 a month she gets.

George has always taken care of the parties' animals and he, knowing that the husband has had back injuries, has always helped with moving large boxes," a filing by Hulk's lawyers said. "George Cruz is not a spy for the husband."

The filing blames Linda for Cruz's problems, saying that Linda prohibited Cruz from working for or even talking to Hulk. When this happened, Hulk decided to stop paying Cruz until the issue could be resolved. And something tells us you quit paying attention about three paragraphs ago.
