Linda Hogan Files for Divorce From Hulk Hogan (Terry Bollea). Mary Delgado Punches Boyfriend


Does Hogan really know best? Having money, a reality t.v. show and a beautiful home in Florida is not always enough. Sure women like strong confident men. But they also like caring sensitive, good listeners. Go figure. The A.P. has reported that Linda Hogan has filed for divorce from Hulk Hogan. You may recall Hulk Hogan (Terry Bollea) from the early days of wrestling. He became even more popular when he appeared in Rocky III. He wrestled around with an undersized Sylvester Stalone. The divorce is filed in Pinellas County. Don't be surprised if their reality t.v. series does not cover the split up and ensuing custody issues.
Update 5-12-08: Both Linda and Terry Bollea spoke on their son, Nick's, behalf. Nick was sentenced to 8 months in jail and 5 years probation for the alcohol related accident that resulted in severe injury to his friend.
Update 4-17-09: Hulk Hogan claims that his comments to Rolling Stone magazine that he can "totally understand" O.J. Simpson are being misunderstood. Hulk had stated that he "took the high road" and "didn't do the O.J. Simpson thing" despite his bitter divorce. (No matter what you meant, not a smart statement, Hulk!)

Mary Delgado: In other reality T.V. news, Mary Delgado, a former Tampa Bay Buccaneer cheerleader, was accused of assaulting her live in boyfriend because she punched him in the mouth. Delgado was proposed in 2004 to on the reality TV show "The Bachelor" by Byron Velvick (fishing pro.)

Mary Delgado (a.k.a. Maribel Liliana Delgado) was apparently charged with battery and being under the influence of alcohol. The name of the victim was not officially released but everyone and his sister assumes it is Velvick. The couple were apparently arguing in the car. Mary apparently punched Byron Velvick in the face and Mary's engagement ring cut his lip. To listen to see ABC video interview and listen to the 911 call click on the link. LINK

Sean Taylor: Meanwhile in unrelated news, Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor was apparently shot in the leg at his home. He was airlifted to Jackson Memorial Hospital where he later died of complications from blood loss. See Viper's comments for more details.

Actually, I have found him to be nice on the rare occasions I have observed him. He appears to worship his kids and does a decent job at the Dad thing.

50% of marriages end in divorce. Why should this one be any different?

Reality T.V. really is a reflection of current society. Domestic abuse is not always by men. About time someone starts pointing out males can be victims too.

Bob said...

Jim, you and any other man who reports a woman to police simply because she hit him is a WIMP!

She apparently did not stab her boyfriend. She did not strangle him. His life was not in jeopardy. Be a man. Break up with her, O.K. Don't talk to her fine. Even ask her to pay your hospital bill if necessary, but keep the cops out of these cases.

More than one source is reporting that the victim is in factByron Velvik. Seems that Mary Delgado may now have a problem sealing a marriage commitment from Byron Velvik. Since "The Bachelor" they've been engaged. Apparently on Wednesday Delgado punched Velvik during a dispute. Some speculate if one or both have a lack of commitment. Not that I am a big fan of any marriage...

She is looking kind of rough!

Delgado may be training to be a boxer or ultimate fighter. Who knows.

Hogans shirt rip was always a classic!

Delgado and Velvick are what is wrong with dating today. I think everyone needs to go back to the basics of dating. Start with Ian Coburn's God is a Woman, Dating Disasters.

Learn from someone else's mistakes and have a chance to get it right yourself.

Domestic violence (including robbery and home invasion if that turns out to be the case) is no laughing matter. Men can be victims. Ask Washington Redskins star safety Sean Taylor. He was shot in the leg at his home and was in critical condition. They are investigating a possible robbery v. possible domestic violence.Officers went to Taylor's home at about 1:45 a.m. after his girlfriend called 911.He was airlifted to Jackson Memorial Hospital.

Richard Sharpstein, an attorney who represented Taylor in the past said he had been shot in the leg and the femoral artery was severed.

Investigators were interviewing the girlfriend and other relatives who were in the home.

Viper said...

Attorney Sharpstein said Taylor's girlfriend told him the couple was awakened by loud noises, Taylor grabbed a machete he keeps in the bedroom. Someone then broke through the bedroom door and fired two shots, one missing and one hitting Taylor.

"It was clearly a burglary, an armed burglary," Sharpstein said. However it looks like nothing was stolen.

Taylor bought this home two years ago in the Miami suburb of Palmetto Bay.

hmmmm, maybe divorce has something to do with their son's accident. I can see lots of "blame" going around on both sides. . . I don't know this other lady but sometimes if the guy does not report the assault he could end up being charged with it a few days later . . . so maybe men do need to file charges for that reason -

Legal Pub said...

The blame game is played out in too many marriages and divorces. Was the teen out of control? If yes, whose fault is it?

Since it is a reality show and since 50% of marriages end in divorce, why should this really surprise anyone? Maybe they will even reconcile on the show. Or perhaps they will demonstrate what to do and not to do while going through a divorce.

Like Curb Your Enthusiasm, there are more potential story lines with divorce...

Legal Pub said...

Ms. C., sad but apparently true. Be the first to report domestic violence so that you are not the one charged. Unfortunately, due to many ingraned biases, often a man is charged with domestic violence even if he is the first to report.

I tend to agree with some of the male posters, if you are not hurt, leave the situation. See your doctor to document any injuries. See a domestic counselor and explain what happened. Go to the police when necessary or advised to do so. But, most of all, whether a man or woman, get out of abusive relationships.

Linda Bollea's divorce petition requests a share of the family's two multimillion-dollar Florida plus alimony and child support for their 17-year-old son.

Linda Bollea's petition says the marriage is "irretrievably broken."

What is the true motive behind the divorce? To avoid legal liability for the young man injured in the wreck involving the Hogan's son?

Legal Pub said...

Three detained today in regard to Sean Taylor murder!

Awesome updates on all three stories! I think Mary has hurt her marketability!

Colette N. Seek a California divorce lawyer's opinion. Most lawyers give free initial consulatations. You may also call your county's bar association as most bars have a pro bono program. Good luck.

Viper said...

Ditto what Legal Pub said Nicole. You need a good Cal divorce lawyer!

Seems like the couple pretend or act like they are still a couple for purposes of the show. I wonder why?

Nicks comments in jail to his dad about wanting to do a reality show as soon as he gets out and blaming his brain injured friend for being so negative is not playing well in the press.

Anonymous said...

So what is the scoop? Is the divorce a sham? Sure, Linda is probably running around with a 19 year old and Terry apparently also has a young hottie...

but is this about trying to protect assets from a devastating civil suit by the family of the boy injured in Nick's accident?

Anonymous said...

Could be financial reasons or it could just be that each of them find new hard bodies irresistible.

Linda'a boyfriend is apparently only two years older than her son Nick!

Legal Pub said...

Is Hulk Hogan falling apart? After looking like an idiot on Larry King, Hulk's ex-wife Linda thinks he should be jailed for not paying for half of their Las Vegas condo per their divorce settlement. According to the Orlando Sentinel:

The estranged wife of former wrestler Hulk Hogan has asked a judge to cite him for allegedly not paying his share of a $4.2 million Las Vegas condo... A court order requires them to share the purchase of the condo at The Palms hotel and spa."

Wonder what Nick and Brook think?

Is Linda dating Charlie Hill who is only 19?
