After divorce hearing, Hulk Hogan's wife says he's full of rage

CLEARWATER — With two beefy bodyguards at her side after a Monday afternoon divorce hearing, Linda Bollea called her soon-to-be ex-husband a person with "a lot of rage, a lot of jealousy."

Linda Bollea said she feared for her life since learning of comments that Terry Bollea, better known as Hulk Hogan, made in a recent issue of Rolling Stone magazine, in which he was quoted as saying he understands O.J. Simpson.

Terry Bollea, who waited across the street while his estranged wife exited the courthouse complex, urged people to read the entire article before judging. His attorney, David Houston, said his client used a poor choice of words, but that Linda Bollea was blowing the issue out of proportion to garner sympathy.

The dueling news conferences came after a hearing in which a judge declined to rule on whether business associates of Terry Bollea's should be forced to testify. Linda Bollea's lawyers claim her husband is using the ventures to hide income from her.

    BOSTON — You might want a bigger boat, but you probably don't need better odds.
