Who is Jennifer McDaniel?
Born on May 13, 1974 in the United States of America, Jennifer McDaniel is a former makeup artist, best known as the wife of retired professional wrestler Terry Bollea, who is better known for performing under the ring name Hulk Hogan. . The beginning of their relationship drew a lot of media and controversy their way.
The Wealth of Jennifer McDaniel
As of mid-2020, Jennifer McDaniel’s net worth is estimated to be over $4 million, partly earned through work as a makeup artist.
Most of her wealth probably stems from the benefit of being the wife of one of the most famous professional wrestlers in history – Hulk Hogan has an estimated net worth of over $25 million.
Life and controversial relationship
While not many details are available about Jennifer’s life before meeting Hogan, it is known that she previously worked as a makeup artist. The two started their relationship sometime in 2008 and it immediately caught the attention of the media and paparazzi. Hogan didn’t hide her from the public, as she showed up with him on vacations, shopping trips, and the like.
This got a lot of attention because he was still working on the divorce case from his first wife Linda Claridge, to whom he was married for about 26 years, by whom they had two children. The divorce ended with Claridge receiving a portion of his wealth and equal custody of their children. Jennifer and Hogan continued to date for two years before he proposed to her, which led to the two having an intimate private ceremony in Clearwater, Florida in the backyard of his home. The wedding was attended by close friends and family, including his two children. The wedding even had a bit of a scene, as one of the security guards in the area was fighting with a paparazzi who was trying to get in to hopefully get a snapshot of the wedding.
Life since marriage
One of the other things that created controversy between McDaniel and Hogan’s relationship is their age difference. She is 20 years younger than her husband, and with her background many believed she only dated him for the money and was not interested in the retired wrestler. This turned out to be wrong as the two have remained together without much trouble in their marriage. She even has a tattoo of his name Terry on her right wrist. They are both fitness enthusiasts and often spend their time in the gym Fitness center together.
Just two years into their marriage, trouble struck again when Hogan got involved in sex scandal with Heather Clem, his friend’s wife. The sex tape released by the Gawker media outlet sparked a lengthy lawsuit that bankrupted the company. She also stayed with him after Hogan’s shooting during a racially insensitive outburst, released online. The tape caused Hogan to lie low for a long time before later apologizing for his actions.
Husband – Hulk Hogan
Hulk is of very mixed Italian, Scottish, Panamanian and French descent.
He was born in Augusta, Georgia, and his family later settled in Port Tampa, Florida. At a young age, he aspired to become a professional baseball player until an injury ended his hopes in that direction. Growing up, he followed the world of professional wrestling and idolized names like Dusty Rhodes and Superstar Billy Graham.
He did not initially intend to become a wrestler, he first worked as a musician and played bass guitar for several rock bands in Florida. He attended the University of South Florida, although he dropped out to focus on a music career. He gained a bit of popularity in Tampa Bay due to his work with the band called Ruckus, and it was during his time there that he met professional wrestlers Jack and Gerald Brisco. The two later invited him to train, as he possessed the physique to make it in the industry.
In 1976, he tried out for professional wrestling, as he was already interested in it, and eventually quit his music job to train full-time.
The success of Hulk Hogan
While Hogan started wrestling in the 1970s, it wasn’t until the 1980s that he gained significant attention when he signed with World Wrestling Federation (WWF), which would later become World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). He joined the company during the professional wrestling boom of the 1980s, and his all-American persona became a hit with many viewers. He headlined the company’s first nine WrestleManias and won the championship five times, initially holding the record for the longest championship reign in the company, and eventually surpassing it.
In the 1990s, he signed with WWF rival World Championship Wrestling (WCW) and continued to set records. He morphed into his villainous Hollywood Hulk Hogan persona there, as part of the New World Order (NWO), and was instrumental in the ratings war between WCW and WWF during this time. He eventually completed his career in WWE and was inducted as a Hall of Famer in 2005. After his retirement, he is more focused on his career as a television personality and actor. He appeared in several commercials and acted in several films, including ‘Hogan Knows Best’ and ‘Mr. Babysit”.
Not many details are known about Jennifer’s past before she met Hogan, although Hogan had a more public life. He used to be married to Linda Claridge, who would become a television personality thanks to the reality show “Hogan Knows Best” in which his family was involved at the time. He allegedly had numerous affairs during the marriage, which later surfaced leading to the duo’s divorce. He lost about 70% of their wealth after the divorce and even contemplated suicide. He met McDaniel in 2008, and a year later they were engaged, which led to their wedding. The two share the Christian faith.
