Hulk Hogan sues ex-wife Linda over insurance policy

Professional wrestler Hulk Hogan and his ex-wife Linda may soon be back in court.

Attorneys for Hogan, whose real name is Terry Bollea, filed court papers on Tuesday afternoon adding Linda Bollea as a defendant in a previously filed lawsuit.

The lawsuit claimed Wells Fargo Insurance Services failed to set Hogan up with an umbrella policy that would have protected his net worth after his son got in a highly publicized car accident that injured a friend, John Graziano.

The new court papers claim Linda Bollea worked as a business manager for the couple and therefore had responsibility for the insurance as well.

"While Terry does not relish litigation with his ex-wife, her refusal to accept legal responsibility for her errors and omissions necessitates this action," said Terry Bollea's attorney Wil Florin.

Linda Bollea was added to the suit because during divorce proceedings she "claimed to be responsible for much of Hogan's career and financial success'' and during a 2008 deposition said she had taken on the role of business manager.
