His ex-wife, Joanne, said that Hull hit her with a shoe with a steel heel while they were in Hawaii. Hull once told a newspaper in Moscow that he agreed with the Nazis.

Bobby Hull Had Three Marriages: Two of Them Accused Him Of Domestic Violence
Hull got married to Joanne McKay first. But after some domestic violence, they split up in 1980. There is not much information about his first wife. But this is clear that they split up because of the domestic violence. After his divorce in the 1980s, the actor was in a relationship with Claudia Allen, but they never got married. Jessica, Hull’s youngest daughter, was born to her in July 1981.
Deborah was the name of Bobby Hull‘s second wife. She was said to be called Bobby Hull’s third wife by the public because the actor was in love with Claudia Allen in the 1980s. Allen was hurt in a bad car accident, so Hull quit the Hartford Whalers to take care of her. But they never got married.
In 1984, Deborah and Bobby got married. But the famous couple didn’t start having problems with their marriage until they had been together for two years. In 1986, he was arrested and charged with assault and battery after he allegedly hit his wife, Deborah, during a fight. In the end, she didn’t press charges.
