's daughter Brooke Hogan
has come to her father's defense after he was accused of likening his ongoing divorce battle to O.J. Simpson
's murder trial.
The former wrestler was forced to clarify comments he made in a new Rolling Stone
magazine interview after causing a stir with his thoughts about the disgraced sports star.
Simpson, now in jail on an armed robbery conviction, was acquitted of killing his wife Nicole and her friend Ron Goldman in 1993, but, like many people, Hogan thinks the fallen sports hero got away with murder - and in the new article he admitted he can understand what drives a man to kill his wife after battling his ex Linda in the divorce courts.
But Hogan's daughter, Brooke, is adamant her father's words have been twisted by the press - insisting the star would never say anything so inflammatory.
She tells ETonline
, "I cannot believe how blown out of proportion one small part of a seven-page article has become. It's a classic case of a quote being taken out of context. I look up to my father in every way. He has been through so much and has taken the high road through it all. The idea that he would condone the O.J. situation is just outrageous."
