Brooke Hogan wants out of the middle

Brooke Hogan told People magazine that she regrets signing what she now calls false allegations that her father Hulk Hogan abused her mother. "I did it under significant pressure from my mother," she told People. Hogan, 20, moths ago signed a legal affidavit accusing her father, whose real name is Terry Bollea, of verbally and physically abusing wife Linda during their marriage. She later thought it was a bad idea and asked that it not be filed in court.

But a tabloid unearthed the document and her spokesman said Brooke is "distressed at the latest efforts by mother Linda to fracture the family. This time they let leak out an old document that Brooke signed filled with exaggerations and fabrications about father Terry's behavior during the marriage. The months-old document was signed by Brooke at a time when she was upset with her father."

Brooke is now living with Hulk, 54, and not on speaking terms with her mother, People says.

"I love my mother, and hope to one day reconcile with her," Brooke says. "But using kids as pawns in a divorce is awful. Every day my mother resorts to this kind of behavior makes it that much harder for us to ever have a relationship again."
