Personal Life, Husband
Ex-Husband Paul Hogan (Michael Dundee)
Kozlowski fell in love with her on-screen romantic partner, Michael Dundee – real name Paul Hogan – during the shooting of “Crocodile Dundee.”
They met while shooting the first film, and their chemistry transformed and began to manifest in real life. During that time, Paul was married to Noelene Edwards with whom he had five kids. For this reason, her relationship with Paul was highly criticized.
At that time, Paul was having a rocky relationship with Noelene whom he had wed in 1958 – they divorced in 1981. The duo would re-marry in 1982 before separating again four years later.
Linda married the “Crocodile Dundee” protagonist in May 1990. They held a private colorful wedding ceremony in Sydney, Australia, which was attended by 100 people, both family and friends. As a gift, Paul gave Linda a $2 million custom-made mansion to express his love for her.
The couple had their first-born son, Chance, in 1998. Linda would later divorce Paul in 2014, after 23 years of marriage. The alleged reason for divorce was cited to be incorrigible differences. Linda explained in an interview that the main reason why she divorced her husband was that the duo had nothing in common, which had made them drift apart. Paul stated that: “We were opposites and we were attracted to each other for a long time.”
Following the divorce, Linda received a $6.25 million one-off payment; they were both to share the custody of Chance, while no child or spousal support was demanded from either party. Although they are divorced, the duo are close friends. In 2019, Linda was reportedly asking and begging Paul to stop smoking, and to get regular check-ups, which proves that she still cares about her ex-husband.
Linda’s Relationship with Moulay Hafid Baba
Shortly after Linda divorced Paul, she began dating Moulay Hafid Baba, whom she met through a friend who was in film production, and they married in 2017. Moulay is a tour guide born in Morocco. Linda and Moulay were allegedly seen wearing gold bands as they were getting wed.
The couple formed a Morocan tour firm, Dream My Destiny, in 2014. In 2018, word spread that the couple would relocate to the States where they would start a family, rather unlikely as she was over 60. However, the duo decided to stay in Morocco where Linda lives to-date. She visits her son regularly, who lives in the US.
Linda’s Net Worth
Linda has amassed her fortune through her booming real estate venture, and also earned a substantial amount of wealth working as an actress. She has several posh beach-front properties in Venice, California which she allegedly bought using her divorce settlement funds. Her firm, Dream My Destiny, is one of her current major sources of income. As of 2021, she is reportedly worth approximately $10 million.
The 63 year-old former actress has maintained her hourglass figure, and stands at a height of 5ft 7ins (1.71m), an weighs around 130lbs (59kgs), with vital statistics of 35-25-35. Linda has long blonde hair and blue eyes.
