29 of 143: Linda Hogan, the 52-year-old ex-wife of wrestler Hulk Hogan, and her 23-year-old boyfriend, Charley Hill, have called it quits.

Hill was seen proposing to Linda on the season finale of the VH1 reality show 'Couple's Therapy' last week. Day later, on Tuesday, May 15, Linda announced their breakup.

'Ok... My status has changed. I am now single,' she on her Facebook page. 'After the great therapy we had together and time to think and concentrate on who we are and who we want to be, Charley and I decided that we should each travel through life in different directions.'

'But, thank you all for always being so supportive of our relationship and choices,' she added. 'I hope that you all understand and are not be too terribly disappointed. Love you!'

Linda and Hill began dating in 2008, when he was 19 years old. She and Hogan, who were married for 24 years, finalized their divorce a year later. The wrestling star has since remarried. His spokesperson had told reporters in July 2010 that Linda and Hill were engaged, adding that Hogan is 'very happy' for his ex-wife. She did not comment.

'When I met Charlie, he was that rock,' Linda said on the finale of 'Couple's Therapy.' 'He was there through all those hard times.'

The episode also saw Hill confronting Linda's mother, who disapproved of their relationship, namely because of their 29-year age difference. He sought her blessing in the engagement. She was seen becoming emotional and appeared to soften her stance about it. Hill told her: 'You know I'll always be here for [Linda], no matter what,' he told her. ( Photo / VH1)
