Hogan’s Children’s reaction to his sex tape

When talking about his experience after the leaked sex tape, Hogan mentions his children Nick and Brooke. He even felt thankful that his children were of a certain age at that time.

As that helped him in making them understand the actual happening. Otherwise, the current scenario would have been pretty different.

 

He thanked god and said, “If this would have happened when Brooke was 12 or 13, at that time, the only conversation she’d listen to would be Linda and she wouldn’t listen to me.”
