Hulk Hogan and Ex-Wife Linda Squabble Over Condo Forfeit

As the insanity surrounding the divorce of Hulk and Linda Hogan continues to swirl, here is the latest bit of celebrity injustice…

It appears that the couple put down almost $850,000 for a down payment on a $4.2 million dollar condo in Las Vegas before Linda filed for divorce. Hogan did not want the condo afterward, but Linda wanted to seal the purchase.

A divorce lawyer sided with Hulk that he did not have to make the purchase, however the real estate company will only return $200,000 and is keeping the other $650,000 for liquidated damages.

Now, both Hulk and Linda attorneys are fighting over who will absorb the monetary loss. But which Hogan attorney knows best?
