CLEARWATER, Fla. -- Nick Hogan (whose real name is Nick Bollea) got a family’s worth of presents for his 18th birthday on Sunday, as his parents and girlfriend visited him in jail.
Hulk Hogan and estranged wife Linda arrived separately, a source on the scene told Access Hollywood. Each brought gifts, with Hulk bringing a birthday cake and balloons and Linda rolling in with a skateboard for her incarcerated son.
“Nick always wanted a skateboard and I finally got it for him and he’s going to enjoy it,” she said, according to the source.
Nick’s girlfriend brought balloons as well.
However, the family didn’t get to see him in person — according to the source, the county now does all visitations via videophone, with the family allowed to sing him “Happy Birthday” as a group before spending individual time on the videophone.
Upon turning 18, Nick was moved from the jail’s juvenile wing to its adult section.
Nick is serving an eight-month sentence after pleading no contest to felony reckless driving, which led to a crash that left his friend, John Graziano, paralyzed.
