Hulk (real name: Terry Bollea) tried to keep a sense of humor about the fracas while making a Saturday appearance at the Spike TV Video Game Awards in Culver City, Calif.
“After the four-year crazy divorce I thought I’d heard everything I could hear in the courtroom,” he told Us Weekly, laughing. “Then, all of a sudden she says I abused her, that I was violent. She told everybody that I was a homosexual.” (Linda leveled her claims in both a shocking memoir and interviews promoting the book.
Clarified Hogan about Linda’s charge that he had a sexual relationship with fellow wrestler Brutus Beefcake: “If any of that was true, I would admit it, and I was a homosexual I would embrace it. It’s just so crazy to hear, so I have a real problem with it….If you’re going to say I’m something that I’m not to try to ruin my career and my livelihood….I have to answer her back.”
Hogan, who shares daughter Brooke, 23, and son Nick, 21, with Linda, told Us he’s baffled by the situation.
