Even nine years after her divorce, Linda Hogan is having trouble moving on.
In an emotional new interview with Inside Edition, Hulk Hogan’s former wife spoke again about her marriage, which ended in 2007.
“I want the world to know how I feel about him,” Linda said. “I gave that man everything. I gave him everything that I had.”
She continued, “My kids to this day are still reeling, and they can’t get their feet back on planet earth. I can’t get my life back on track either. I don’t know, what am I supposed to do? Start over now that I’m 57? I don’t know where I fit in in this world any more.”
The couple’s divorce came amid allegations that Hulk abused and cheated on Linda. Her allegations were at least partly confirmed when, in 2012, a sex tape was released showing Hulk having sex with his best friend’s wife.
“I was honest, I was a good wife,” Linda said during her interview. “I never cheated on him.”
She also took time during the show to tearfully read an emotional letter she had written to her ex-husband.
“You have single-handedly ruined our 25-year marriage and our family,” she wrote. “My trust, my love, my future, our future family with grandchildren, holidays, weddings, our kids’ lives, homes, their ability to trust, our poor animals, friends, neighbors, your career, finances, trademarks, retirement, your legacy, your reputation, your health… even your soul… You lost it all.”
She continued, “You took me for granted and never appreciated me or our beautiful family… blaming me for your horrendous mistakes. And yet you continue in life this very way, still… Hiding behind those sunglasses, false smile, oh… and the bandanna! Until you can really apologize, to me… and to our children… I will never ever forgive you.”
