Former wrestler Hulk Hogan has hit back at claims he staged hospital visits to John Graziano, who was left seriously injured after a 2007 car crash involving the star’s son NIick.
Graziano’s parents are suing Hogan - real name Terry Bollea - and his estranged wife, Linda, for failing to prevent the accident, which left their son in need of 24 hour care.
And the couple recently accused the Bollea family of staging a visit to the 23-year-old earlier this year and informing the paparazzi of their presence to make it look as if they regularly spent time at John’s bedside.
But Bollea’s attorney, Morris ‘Sandy’ Weinberg Jr., has rubbished the claims, telling People.com, "The Bollea family has been visiting John for the last seven or eight months, and there’s been no PR about it whatsoever. It’s a bunch of nonsense to suggest their visits to John are a PR stunt. That’s crazy."
Nick Bollea, 17, had his driving license suspended for a year in November (07) after Florida officials deemed him a dangerous driver, following the August (07) accident that left his friend needing nursing care for the rest of his life.
Bollea has also been charged with reckless driving involving serious bodily injury and will be tried as an adult when his case reaches court next month.
