HULK Hogan just committed the ultimate no-no: likening the rage he feels toward soon-to-be ex, Linda Hogan, to that of OJ Simpson.
The former WWF star tells Rolling Stone he understands why Simpson (allegedly) went on a killing spree, violently murdering ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman in 1994.
â€œI totally understand OJ,â€ he says. â€œI get it. I could have turned everything into a crime scene like OJ, cutting everybodyâ€™s throat.â€
But Hogan explains, â€œYou live half a mile from the 20 000-square-foot home you canâ€™t go to anymore, youâ€™re driving through downtown Clearwater and see a 19-year-old boy driving your Escalade, and you know that a 19-year-old boy is sleeping in your bed, with your wife.â€
He is referring to Lindaâ€™s new boyfriend, whom he calls â€œsome shaggy haired pool boy 30 years her junior.â€
Linda reportedly forced Hogan out of his US$18 million home and started spending his money at the rate of US$40 000 a month.
To be expected, the Hulkâ€™s rep was in full damage control mode on Wednesday, telling Access Hollywood that Hogan, â€œin no way condones the OJ situation.â€
Hogan and Linda are battling it out in a Florida divorce court, where Lindaâ€™s attorney claims sheâ€™s entitled to use the car and that Hoganâ€™s claims against her are merely an attempt to control her love life.Â â€“â€“ OK!
