LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Despite Hulk Hogan drawing parallels between himself and O.J. Simpson during an interview with Rolling Stone, a rep for the reality star told Access Hollywood that Hulk “in no way condones the O.J. situation.”
The former wrestling star told the mag that following his divorce from his wife, Linda Bollea, he could imagine it getting gruesome.
“I could have turned everything into a crime scene, like O.J., cutting everybody’s throat,” he said. “You live half a mile from the 20,000-square-foot home you can’t go to anymore, you’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… I totally understand O.J. I get it.”
On Wednesday, a rep for Hulk, whose real name is Terry Bollea, told Access, “Hulk in no way condones the O.J. situation.”
Adding, “As part of a larger conversation, he referred to it to exemplify his frustration with his own situation.”
Linda, 49, filed for divorce from Hulk, 55, in November 2007 after 24 years of marriage.
