Brooke Hogan seemed to be turning into the ultimate reality TV star and at the same time she was breaking into the music industry. Then she disappeared from view. So, what happened to Hulk Hogan’s daughter and what’s she doing today? We went looking for answers and here’s what we found.
She’s Been Speaking Up For Dad
She poked her head out above the parapet to talk about her dad’s victory over Gawker Media. He received $31 million for an invasion of his privacy in a lawsuit against the company. She said that she was proud of what he’d achieved for other people by going to court.
She May Know Something That We Don’t
Was she suggesting that Hulk Hogan was going to make a comeback when she said, “I will say this, he is capable of anything. He’s 64 and he’s like 23.”?
She Lost Her Dog
Her dog, Molly, is an 11-year old Pomeranian. Molly dodged her dog-sitter and took off on her own in April 2017. Brooke’s impassioned pleas for help on Twitter saw her reunited with Molly a few days later.
She Wrote A Poem About Her Dad’s Racism
The sex tape which led to the Gawker case all starred Brooke’s dad using racial slurs. So Brook wrote this in response, “If you knew the dad I knew / you’d know his tender heart. He’d never want to hurt his fans / or family from the start. If you knew my father / you would know how hard he fought…/ and the way it brought a smile to people light, medium and dark.”
She’s Friends With Her Mom Again
Brooke had a public fallout with her mom. When her mom spoke out about Brooke’s breast augmentation surgery, she said she felt “betrayed.” Well, they appear to be friends now and Linda Hogan was an integral part of the search for Brooke’s dog, Molly.
She’s Talking Up Ronda Rousey
Recent comments by Brooke on Ronda Rousey seem to suggest that she’d like to go into a WWE match with her as tag team partners. That would be really cool.
Brook Has Been Bullied Online
It’s not all upside for Hulk Hogan’s daughter. She has also revealed how she’s often bulled online. People keep criticizing her “manly physique” and making transphobic comments about her. However, she’s stayed on her body positive message and won’t give into the bullies.
She Split With Phil Costa
She got engaged in November 2013 to Phil Costa of the Dallas Cowboys. She dumped him before the New Year of 2014 though because it was “all moving too fast.”
She’s Still Making Music
Brooke’s first album charted in 2006 at Number 33 on the Billboard charts. The second album, in 2008, didn’t do so well. Her latest single was Taste Like Summer from July 2017. Didn’t hear it? Neither did anyone else.
She’s Got A Secret Wrestling Project She’s Working On
Brooke announced to the world that she’s working on a secret project to empower women in wrestling. We don’t have any more details as to what shape that will take but she says, “it’s so empowering women!”
