Jennifer McDaniel was born on May 13, 1974, in New York City, New York, United States. Not much is known about her personal life before her relationship with Hulk Hogan.
Relationship with Hulk Hogan
In early 2008, Jennifer McDaniel began dating American professional wrestler Terry Genne Bollea, better known by his pseudonym, “Hulk Hogan” or “Hollywood Hulk Hogan.” Hulk is almost 20 years older than Jennifer.
Hulk was married to Linda Claridge from 1983 to 2009. They also had a daughter, Brooke (born on May 5, 1988) and a son, Nick (born on July 27, 1990). Hulk and his family also participated in the reality TV series ‘Hogan Knows Best.’ However, Linda filed for divorce, citing infidelity as the cause, in November 2007. The divorce was finalized in 2009.
The Marriage that Turned into a Brawl
Jennifer McDaniel and Hulk Hogan got engaged in November (December, according to some reports) 2009. Hulk is said to have made a great media moment by pointing at the massive diamond ring on Jennifer’s finger while they were at the ‘Los Angeles International Airport.’ Around the same time, Hulk is said to have bragged to the media that Jennifer hated celebrity gossip and believed in the teachings of Jesus Christ.
He also claimed back then that Jennifer was definitely going to be his wife, because he liked the fact that at their home, people watched positive programs on TV, such as cartoons or channels related to science and history. He said that Jennifer was not the sort to read the newspaper or even watch negative programs on TV. He is said to have claimed that “She always walks in the Spirit of Christ, she never deviates.”
Jennifer McDaniel and Hulk Hogan got married on December 14, 2010, in Hogan’s backyard in Clearwater, Florida. It was attended by a handful of close friends and family members. The guests included Logan’s daughter, Brooke, and son, Nick.
However, the ceremony soon turned into a war zone. Reportedly, one of Hulk’s bodyguards, Ron Howard, who is also Hulk’s friend, got into an ugly argument with a photographer, Robert Martinez, who was trying to click a photo of the couple without permission.
When Ron stopped Robert from clicking photographs, Robert reportedly responded by saying “You’re in my space and I’m carrying a gun.”
A brawl followed, creating mass panic. Someone at the wedding called the police. The ‘Clearwater Police Department’ came in to investigate the incident. Apparently, Robert had filmed the entire incident on his camera, and the police even reviewed the footage later. Robert was not arrested, but Ron was questioned.
Ron later apologized for the incident, saying “It wasn’t meant to be in a bad way.” He added that he just wished to politely ask the photographer what he was up to, as he seemed suspicious.

Jennifer McDaniel and Hulk Hogan are both fitness enthusiasts. They are often clicked wearing gym gear.
She supported Hulk during the controversy related to his sex tape with Heather Cole (then wife of Bubba the Love Sponge Clem, or Todd Alan Clem) that was released in 2012. In fact, Jennifer was beside Hulk throughout his legal battle with ‘Gawker Media.’ Hulk had sued the media house for releasing his sex tape with Heather.
Though ‘IMDb’ lists Jennifer as a leading makeup artist who has contributed to major movies such as ‘The Last Stand,’ ‘Reconstruction,’ and ‘Fright Night,’ and series such as ‘In Plain Sight,’ ‘Crash,’ ‘Comanche Moon,’ and ‘Wildfire,’ there is no other record available on her work. Similarly, Jennifer seems to be reluctant to share any information about her life with the media, as she is not present on any social-media platform such as ‘Instagram’ or ‘Twitter.’
The media and Hulk’s fans have often termed Jennifer a “gold digger,” but Jennifer and Hulk seem to be enjoying each other’s company. The couple lives in their villas in Tampa, Florida, and Beverly Hills, California.
