Linda Hogan has filed for divorce from her wrestler and reality TV star husband Hulk Hogan, a US newspaper reported.

Hulk Hogan, whose real name is Terry Bollea, told the St Petersburg Times that he had no idea his wife had filed for divorce.

He was informed by a reporter that Pinellas County court records in Florida showed that the paperwork was submitted on Tuesday.

“Thank you for the great information,” he told the reporter.

Family spokesman Adam Handelsman referred calls to another spokesman, who did not immediately respond last night.

“My wife has been in California for about three weeks. … Holy smokes,” Bollea later told the newspaper. “Wow, you just knocked the bottom out of me.”

The couple star in the VH1 reality TV series 'Hogan Knows Best', with their two children.

Recent episodes show the normally close couple attending marital counselling, but they eventually reconcile.

On November 7, Hogan’s son, 17-year-old Nick Bollea, was arrested on reckless-driving charges after a car crash. Clearwater police said Bollea crashed his 1998 Toyota Supra on August 26 while street racing against a silver Dodge Viper driven by a friend.

A report said Bollea was driving faster than 60 mph (96 kph) in a 40 mph (64 kph) zone.

Bollea’s passenger, John Graziano, was not wearing a seat belt and was critically injured. Bollea, who was wearing a seat belt, was not seriously injured.

The Hogans moved to a $12m (€8m) bayfront estate on Miami Beach in 2006 so their children, Brooke and Nick, could pursue singing and acting careers. They had previously lived in Clearwater, near Tampa.
