Paul Hogan can now say, “that’s not a settlement. That’s a settlement” after successfully finalising his divorce while managing to hold on to the love of his life
The now ex-Mrs Hogan, Linda Kozlowski, will receive a one-off payment of $6.25 million while Hoges will keep the rights to his Crocodile Dundee character and the film company that produced the classic films.
Kozlowski, 56, will remain living in their Venice Beach home until 2018, or until she remarries, which ever happens first according to TMZ.
The pair will share legal custody of their 15-year-old son Chance and neither will pay child or spousal support.
Hogan, now 74, and Kozlowski were the original Brad and Angelina after falling in love on set in 1986 after the Australian actor cast Kozlowski to play his love interest Sue Charlton in the first Crocodile Dundee film. Hoges split with his then wife Noelene soon after before marrying his American co-star in 1990.
The couple were married for 23-years before separating in September last year citing irreconcilable differences.
Prior to splitting with Kozlowski, Hogan was at the centre of a long running ATO investigation for tax evasion. After returning home to attend his mother’s funeral in 2010, he was prohibited from leaving the country, which resulted in a public stand-off with the taxation department. No charges were ever laid and he settled for an undisclosed sum in 2012.
