Brooke Hogan: “My Mom Really Hurt Me”

Betsy Waldman / August 2, 2009

Does she ever stop talking about this?

In a new interview with Hollywood Life, Redemption singer Brooke Hogan yaps about her damaged relationship with mom Linda.

“She’s done some things that, you know, I don’t think any mother would ever do. I love her so much but, you know, it’s just a lot of the things she did really hurt me,” says the 21-year-old singer. “So I wrote a song on my new album called ‘Dear Mom.’ It’s pretty brutal, but it’s honest.”

We’ve heard it and yes, Brooke, it’s brutal indeed.

Like many families that choose to show their lives on reality TV, her parents fell victim to the divorce curse. But does she think the cameras are to blame? “It definitely adds extra pressure,” she says. “I mean, you can’t air out your shorts or scream your head off when you want to. But if the problem is underlying, it’s bound to come out at some point.”

She hasn’t lost both parents during the bitter divorce battle. Brooke admits that she is closer than ever to dad Hulk Hogan and loves how involved he has been with her show Brooke Knows Best. “He’s been on the show like six times. He’s going to go on my show, some more. He always pops in.”
