Crocodile Dundee Co-Stars File for Divorce

crocodile dundee co stars split

Australian actor Paul Hogan of 'Crocodile Dundee' fame has split with his third wife and former co-star Linda Kozlowski Hogan.

The couple, who reside in California with their only child, Chance Hogan, 15, separated last month after 23 years of marriage and have filed divorce papers citing irreconcilable differences.

Hogan's wife is seeking joint legal and physical custody of their son as well as spousal support.  She also plans to revert back to her maiden name Kozlowski.

Linda was born and raised in Connecticut and graduated from the Juilliard School's drama department in 1981.  Her big break came in 1986 when she was cast as the female lead opposite Paul Hogan in 'Crocodile Dundee.'

The film was the second highest-grossing movie that year just behind 'Top Gun.'  Hogan and his actress wife reprised their roles in 1988 and 2001.

Paul, 74, has a net worth of $20 million -- down from a reported $75 million earlier in his career.  Hogan sued a Swiss bank in April 2013, claiming it allowed one of the actor's former financial advisors to abscond with more than $32 million.  The case remains unsettled.

The estranged celebs sold their Malibu mansion to fellow-Aussie actor Chris Hemsworth in September for $4.8 million.  The 5 bedroom residence has a gourmet chefs kitchen, library and five bedrooms with ocean views.
