Hogans Told To Stay the H*** Away

3/14/2008 12:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tired of what they think are PR stunts, the family of seriously injured John Graziano has reportedly banned the Hogan family from his bedside.

Graziano family attorney Kimberley Kohn told the St. Petersburg Times that she believes the Linda, Brooke and Nick's Valentine's day visit to the hospital was a "a total (public relations) stunt" because pictures of the trip appeared on several celeb websites.

The attorney for the Hogans (whose real name is Bollea) says that's crap. "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."

Last August Graziano was injured in a horrific crash when he was a passenger in a car driven by 17-year-old Nick Hogan. The yellow Toyota Supra careened out of control on a street near downtown Clearwater, Fla. and crashed into a palm tree. Witnesses claim Bollea and another driver were racing. Bollea faces felony charges of reckless driving with serious bodily injury.

Looks like the Hulkster should have paid more attention to his wild hooligan son Nick, rather than always be up Brookes' ass about everything.

Good, I'm tired of Nick denying he did anything wrong and blaming the victim for not wearing a seatbelt. I get the impression his only regret is the trouble he's in instead of the fact he has essentially ended a friends life.

The hogans are a bunch of crap. i feel sorry for brooke. her brother is gonna go to jail. her parents are fighting like a bunch of two year olds. We need to focus on john. he willl never get up, have a family, grow old. he is in a vegitative state and will never wake up. Nick needs to go to prision to learn the consequences of his reckless actions. Also the family is a bunch of has bens and we need to not give them the attention they want.

The guy WAS a idiot for not wearing a seat belt. Do you really think that was the first time he' been with Nick when Nick was drunk? Come on people you have to be responsible for yourself, no one else will. He was already responsible for his own ass when he got in the car with a Piss tank!

I think it was a tragic accident and both of them are at fault it just so happened that one of them got hurt but I honestly DONT think he should have the book thrown at him b/c he is a celebrity.. I think he should get in trouble for the racing; but both boys knew exactly what they were doing and what could happen. Nick could have have been the one to get hurt and nobody is even looking at the bigger picture.

whatever tha fu*!/rockergirl    

Nic (Hulk hogan's son) made a bad decision that one night ! . . . he didnt think "streeracing" could harm the passeger's side?He should of gone 2 the public "motorspeedway" and raced by himself w/ an opponent, then again, racing is never safe anyway. he would, have had 2 'worried' about his own life on the racetrack .

The kid made a mistake. There are many people out there who do the same thing and no one ever gets hurt! I am by no means saying I condone the behavior, but isn't the fact he has to live with knowing what has happened to his FRIEND enough?! So what if he is spoiled, that doesn't mean he should serve jailtime. The victim should've been wearing a seatbelt and he got in the car knowing Nick was racing! The matter is unrelated to the rest of Nick's family, and it sounds to me like the victim's family are the one's who want publicity.
