Linda Hogan, Hulk Hogan

Linda Hogan may be a cougar, but she's hired a legal pit bull.

The estranged wife of Hulk Hogan has asked a Florida judge to hold the former wrestler in contempt of court for failing to ante up his share of a $4.2 million Las Vegas condo the duo agreed to purchase prior to their separation.

The property was in escrow when they filed for divorce, and a judge at the time ordered both sides to pay half and then include the Palms Hotel pad among their joint assets. While the missus has made good on her share of the payment, the Hulkster has yet to do the same.

In legal papers filed in Pinellas County Family Court last week, Linda Hogan (the family's legal last name is Bollea), maintained that she attempted to contact her former better half last month but, per her best sarcastic legalese, "the Husband apparently vanished from the face of the Earth on May 30, 2008 as he was, allegedly, unable to be reached by his advisors."

"In accordance with a court agreement the Bollea's were to close on a condominium in Las Vegas May 30," Linda's attorney, A.J. Barranco, told E! News Wednesday. "Mrs. Bollea attended the closing and did as she had agreed in court. In just another strong-arm tactic Mr. Bollea, aka Hulk Hogan, did not show up and was unreachable."

The bookers for Larry King Live, meanwhile, didn't seem to have any problems getting in touch.

As a result, Linda Hogan is requesting that her estranged husband be held in the Pinellas County Jail until he makes good on the original order. Should that happen, the Hulkster may finally be able to have some nonleaked conversations with his son.

Nick Hogan is currently jailed at the same facility.

"The request for jail time is standard procedural language which must be put into all 'motions for contempt,'" Barranco said. "It gives the judge the right to impose jail time for someone ignoring the court's ruling. She is not asking the court for anything other than to get the Hulk to close on the property."

Hulk's attorney, Ann Kerr, did not immediately return E! News' request for comment.
