Graziano's Mom

Granted Guardianship

10/10/2007 2:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1010_graziano_nick_bn_wi-1A Florida judge has granted temporary guardianship to Debra Graziano, mother of John Graziano, the critically injured Marine in the August 26 car crash involving Hulk Hogan's son Nick Bollea.

Graziano has been in critical condition since the wreck, and is said to be in a coma-like state. His mother Debra and her estranged husband, Edward, have been fighting over guardianship of John, according to WTVT in Tampa. Edward Graziano wanted an independent guardian appointed for his son.

Steven Hearn, an attorney for Edward Graziano, alleges that the Hogans are financially supporting his estranged wife in an effort to avoid a potential lawsuit. "The Bolleas have been providing financial support to his wife," said Hearn. "We have learned, for example, that they are paying for her to live in a condominium or townhouse in Clearwater."

Hearn requested and was granted a continuance, in order to "investigate what other financial benefits the Bolleas have been providing to Mrs. Graziano during the course of these events," he said.

Just my opinion    

He's upset that his wife is now the guardian? I wonder how involved was he with his wife and kids before the accident? Well, if they are separated, probably little involvement.

And just the Ron Golddigger, I mean Ron Goldman, he wants to capitalize off his son's unfortunate accident.

I think the Hogans should help with the medical bills and anything else they can do for this family. Their son caused this accident and walked away.

It is good that the Hogans are paying for a condo near her son. John's mom needs to focus on him, not the stress of having to pay for extra bills.

If the Hogan's weren't helping Mrs Graziano I would disdain them, NOT the other way around. Don't forget these families(with the exception of John's father) were friends, wouldn't you do everything you could to help?

Our prays are of course with the Graziano family. What will be the repercussions to Nick Boella? His license should be suspended indefinitely, or until he proves he has become a mature and responsible person. His friend was willing to give his life for our country and Nick has the ignorant nerve to just spit on that and be so irresponsible?!!!! Nick needs some serious jail time and a mice long stint at boot camp. Hope he learns from this; but what a price his friend had to pay.

What do you mean it wasn't Nick's fault?.... are you insane?

He was RACING in a high performance Supra, he is an untrained 17 year old kid!

Hell yes, it's his fault.
