Thanks to his own divorce, Hulk Hogan is starting to regret revealing in a Rolling Stone interview that he understood why O.J. killed Nicole Brown-Simpson and thought about doing the same thing to his ex-wife Linda and her 19-year-old boyfriend Charley. Linda’s lawyers have, naturally, jumped all over the comment. TMZ reports:
“We have always maintained that the fear that Linda has had to live with comes from the rage and instability much too often associated with pro wrestlers.” The statement goes on: “Linda and her family are taking these recent homicidal comments seriously.”
The statement concludes by saying Linda’s attorney is weighing his legal options.
Hulk defended himself to TMZ reporters who caught up with him last night:
Last night in Clearwater, FL the Hulkster said his Rolling Stone interview was a 3-day long affair, in which he said he was really the anti-OJ Simpson. But here’s the thing. Last night, he explained, “I didn’t do the OJ Simpson thing. I took the high road.”
I don’t really think there’s a high and a low road when it comes to murdering your ex-wife. Then again, this is coming from a guy who believed it was “God’s will” that his son put another kid in a coma in a drunk drag race crash. I guess what I’m getting at is, someone should hide the knives.
