Jennifer McDaniel, Hulk Hogan’s second wife, has filed for divorce from him, according to the WWE. Everything you need to know about her and the former wrestler’s past marriage is right here.
Hulk Hogan, 68, and his second wife Jennifer McDaniel, 47, have separated and divorced. The revelation was revealed by the retired wrestler, whose real name is Terry Eugene Bollea when fans began to query about a new woman who had appeared in his social media posts without warning. The Hulk explained that the woman in question is, in reality, his new girlfriend, Sky.
Here’s all you need to know about Jennifer, what happened during their divorce, and everything you need to know about Hulk’s first marriage to Linda.
Who is Jennifer McDaniel?
Jennifer McDaniel, who was born on May 13, 1974, is Hulk’s second wife and his mother. The Hulk met Jennifer, a former makeup artist who had worked with him following his divorce from Linda, in 2008, and the two became engaged shortly after.
Jennifer was a well-known makeup artist in Hollywood, and she was even nominated for a Saturn Award for her work on the film Let Me In, for which she received a nomination for Best Makeup Artist. Finally, on December 28, 2010, the couple exchanged vows in a private, intimate ceremony held in the garden of their Clearwater, Florida home.
The couple does not have any children together, and they have kept their relationship out of the spotlight. Jennifer, on the other hand, has made multiple appearances on Hulk’s Instagram account, including vacations, shopping excursions, and other activities.
Even though Jennifer is almost 20 years Hulk’s younger, the couple has managed to stay together despite several severe trials, such as Hulk’s sex scandal with Heather Clem, his friend’s wife, in which their sex video was revealed by media source Gawker, and other tribulations. The incident resulted in protracted litigation, which finally resulted in the firm going out of business.
After months of speculation, Hulk finally confirmed his split with Jennifer on February 28 via his Twitter account. For the record, he wrote, “Yo Maniacs, just for the record, the Facebook and Instagram posts are of me and my girlfriend Sky.”
The following statement was made: “I am officially divorced; I apologize if everyone was previously aware; I adore my Maniacs4Life.” Following the publication of court records acquired by TMZ, the Hulk filed for divorce in October 2021, with the divorce being completed late last year.
Yo Maniacs just for the record,the Facebook and Instagram posts are of me and my girlfriend Sky,I am officially divorced, sorry I thought everyone already knew,love my Maniacs4Life

Linda Hogan Was Hulk’s First Wife
They had been together for more than 24 years. Linda Marie Claridge was born on August 24, 1959, in Los Angeles, California, and is an American actress. They first met in a LA restaurant in the early 1980s and continued a long-distance romance over the phone for the next two years before they finally met in person.
They were married in 1983, and a large number of prominent professional wrestlers from the era, including Andre the Giant, Vince McMahon, and others, were in attendance.
Linda began her professional wrestling career in the 1990s as a backup vocalist for the Hulk’s Wrestling Boot Band. However, it wasn’t until 2005 that she and the Hogan children, Brooke, born in 1988, and Nick, born in 1990, joined the Hulk for the VH1 reality show Hogan Knows Best, which documented their lives and careers.
Linda eventually filed for divorce from Hulk in 2007, and their divorce was finalized in 2009. Following their divorce, Linda published a book titled Wrestling the Hulk: My Life Against the Ropes, in which she described aspects of her marriage as well as Hulk’s violent background. Linda revealed some traumatic facts about her relationship with the former professional wrestler in her 2011 biography.
“[Hulk] ripped my clothing to shreds. He flung lights at people. “During disputes, slamming doors, hitting walls, and beating walls, he held me down on the bed with his hands around my throat,” she claimed in a letter to Us Weekly.
“I was always scared that he might murder me in one of his rages,” says the author. Additionally, Linda’s publicist claimed E! News in 2008 that Linda filed for divorce because of Hulk’s affair with Christiane Plante, who was also a close friend of their daughter Brooke’s.
However, Christiane later confirmed the connection to The National Enquirer in 2008, claiming that she and the Hulk’s romance began when he and Linda “privately” realized their marriage was crumbling.
Following her divorce, Linda made news when she began dating Charley Hill, who was much younger than her (he was 19, she was 48 when they started dating in 2008). The couple never married even though he proposed to her in 2021 during an episode of Couple’s Therapy on VH1.
He ended up filing a $1.5 million lawsuit against her in 2014 for chores he performed, which included waxing her yacht and fertilizing 25 acres of avocado trees, among other things.
