Brooke Hogan hit up the gym over the weekend with her dad, famed wrestler Hulk Hogan, mere hours after a jury awarded the former WWE star $115 million in his lawsuit against Gawker Media.
Hogan’s wife, Jennifer, also joined him for a workout in Clearwater, Florida, according to People Magazine, and the family kept things low-key after a lengthy court battle that involved quite a bit of media coverage.
Hogan and Gawker have been battling things out in court for months after the media conglomerate published part of a sex tape that he says he was unaware was being made during an intimate encounter with the ex-wife of a former friend. The woman, Heather Clem, says she didn’t know they were being recorded at the time. The story involves a lot of twists and turns, many of which shocked the courtroom during the length of the trial and led to accusations and denials from several parties. The man apparently responsible for filming the intimate exchange–Todd “Bubba The Love Sponge” Clem–initially said that Hogan was aware he was being filmed at the time, but changed his story after Hogan sued him. Clem allegedly encouraged Hogan to sleep with his ex-wife, then filmed the two of them for financial gain.
“I felt numb. The news just hit me that they told me that Bubba was on the end of the tape saying, ‘Heather, this is our retirement.’ My hands started shaking…. I could not stop shaking,” he added. “It turned my world upside down,” Hogan testified.
Brooke Hogan hasn’t said much about her father’s ordeal publicly but has remained supportive of him over the years following his divorce from her mom, Linda. Brooke has been working hard at the gym even when her dad isn’t around, from the looks of things; she recently posted a photo on Twitter showing off her abs, saying she’s getting back to where she feels comfortable.
