Hulk Hogan Considered Suicide When Wife Sought Divorce

Originally posted 10/27/2009 08:55AM

Hulk Hogan admits he was nearly driven to suicide following his wife Linda's divorce filing in the fall of 2007 – a surprising admission the wrestling legend makes in a book dedicated to none other than his ex-wife.

"To Linda, I pray that you find peace and joy in life. I love you," Hogan writes on the dedication page of My Life Outside the Ring, a tell-all autobiography, co-authored by PEOPLE senior writer Mark Dagostino, that hits bookshelves Tuesday.

The affectionate dedication may come as a shock to fans who followed the couple's bitter divorce, which ended when they reached a settlement last July. Hogan describes that tumultuous period of his life, beginning with his son Nick's August 2007 car accident. Four months later, shortly after his wife Linda filed for divorce, Hogan found himself chasing Xanax pills with swigs of rum one weekend – while holding a gun in his hand.
