Bollea Calls For Hogan To Be Locked Up
HULK HOGAN's estranged wife LINDA BOLLEA has filed an emergency court motion asking a Florida judge to throw the wrestling legend in jail - for failing to pay her the agreed $4.2 million (GBP2.1 million) to buy an apartment in Las Vegas.
The pair has been embroiled in a bitter war of words since Linda filed for divorce from Hogan - real name Terry Bollea - last November (07) after 23 years of marriage.
At a hearing in April (08), Hogan was ordered to hand over the cash to Linda to finalise the buy, which they had been in the process of purchasing when he was hit with divorce papers.
The judge ruled Hogan must pay to complete the deal, after which the condominium would be considered a shared asset. The division of assets is to be decided at a later date.
However, according to legal documents filed on 2 June (08) and obtained by website TMZ.com, Linda claims Hogan is in contempt of court because he has still not paid for the pad.
And she wants him locked up - in the same jail where their 17-year-old son Nick is currently serving his eight-month sentence for felony reckless driving charges.
In the papers, Linda's attorneys urge the court to: "Find the Husband (Hogan) in willful civil contempt of Court for his failure to comply with the terms of the Court's Order Approving Stipulation as to Las Vegas Condominium Contract and for Related Matters."
They also call for the judge to: "Incarcerate the Husband in the Pinellas County Jail until he performs all necessary acts required by the existing Court Order, including providing the necessary funds to the Closing Agent and obtaining title to the aforementioned real property in joint names of the Husband and the Wife (Linda)."
