Hulk Hogan slams ex-wife's accusations of abuse, homosexual relationship

hulk-hogan-getty.jpgThe seemingly never-ending battle between Hulk Hogan and his ex-wife Linda continues to take new, ugly turns. Just days after the pro wrestling legend filed suit against his former spouse following claims he physically abused her and had a homosexual relationship, Hulk rips her in an Us Magazine interview.

"After the four-year crazy divorce I thought I'd heard everything I could hear in the courtroom," he says. "Then, all of a sudden she says I abused her, that I was violent...If you're going to say I'm something that I'm not to try to ruin my career and my livelihood....I have to answer her back."

In Linda Hogan's recently published autobiography " Wrestling the Hulk -- My Life Against the Ropes," the former reality star alleges that Hulk Hogan (real name Terry Bollea) "tore my shirt, threw lamps, and held me down on the bed with his hands around my throat during arguments. Slamming doors. Pounding walls. I was always afraid he would kill me in one of his rages."

Things get really seedy when, according to the lawsuit, Linda says her ex-husband had a relationship with a male wrestler.

During a radio interview, Linda was asked, "Do you believe that Hulk and Brutus Beefcake ever had an intimate relationship?"

She responds, "Well, a little bird told me yes."

The Hulkster says that while he's not gay, he'd admit it if he was.

"If any of that was true, I would admit it, and I was a homosexual I would embrace it. It's just so crazy to hear, so I have a real problem with it," he says.

If only they were still filming " Hogan Knows Best." This would make for a great episode.
