His parents, who were married on May 5, 1990, separated 23 years later in 2013 when his mother filed for divorce from her husband citing irreconcilable differences. While Linda claimed she was sick of being in her husband’s shadow, Paul stated that the relationship worn out because they had nothing in common. The divorce was finalized in mid-2014, and while neither of them paid child support and both shared joint custody of their child; Chance Hogan decided to live with his father. The divorce and the accompanying media attention were devastating for the teenager who gradually went on a downward spiral in the following years, becoming involved in several controversies. His mother, after being blamed for not taking care of her only child due to her globetrotting nature, claimed that Chance prefers to live with his father because his house has a “teen hangout room”. His mother later married her Moroccan business partner Moulay Hafid Baba.
