Hulk Hogan was so distraught when his 24 year marriage to Linda Bollea fell apart, he actually considered taking his own life!
In his new autobiography, My Life Outside the Ring, Hogan admits he picked up a loaded gun to shoot himself after she filed for divorce, but luckily he soon came to his senses.
He wrote: “There were times when I thought that a whole bottle of pills would go down easy. Then I noticed the gun in my hand. I was careless with it… I kept my finger pressed right to that trigger… and if I moved that finger an inch in the right direction I would have blown my brains out.”
As if the divorce wasn't enough, he slipped further into depression after his son Nick's infamous car accident that left his friend and passenger, John Graziano with severe brain damage.
Making matters worse was the fact that his ex wife had started dating a teenager, someone who went to school with his son Nick. Hogan admitted the situation left him “humiliated,” but eventually he “took the high road” and “turned to Christ.”
Hogan seems to be doing much better these days. He's come to terms with his wife dating a child and is refocusing his attention on his children and being the best dad that he can be. It's sad that some time in the spotlight literally tore this family apart.
