Brooke Hogan

I Hated the Undertaker

... Feared He'd Steal My Panties

6/9/2015 1:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Hulk Hogan's daughter says she couldn't stand The Undertaker while she was growing up ... claiming she was in constant fear that the wrestling legend was gunning to steal her underwear. 

Brooke explained her panty paranoia at the The Pool After Dark at Harrah’s in Atlantic City ... saying that she thought he got his name "Undertaker" because he would "take underwear."

Hogan says she was later convinced the guy was NOT a panty pilferer. 

But get this ... on the flip side, Hogan says her FAVORITE wrestler growing up was "Macho Man" Randy Savage ... and she tells a pretty adorable story about the WWE legend. 

Was Savage really a teddy bear in private?? OOOOOH YYYYEEEAAAHHHH.

Scott Steiner

I Didn't Threaten Hulk Hogan

... But I Still Hate Him

EXCLUSIVE

0407-scott-steiner-wiki-01Scott Steiner is calling BS on Hulk Hogan -- claiming he never threatened to kill the guy before WrestleMania ... and says Hulk's just acting like a scared little bitch. 

We broke the story ... Steiner is under investigation over a March 26th encounter with Hulk's wife Jennifer -- when she claims Steiner grabbed her at the San Jose airport and told her he was going to kill Hogan. Jennifer and Hulk filed a report with police the next day. 

"I'm not going to dignify [Hogan's] lies," Steiner said ... "I didn't put my hands on her."

Steiner says he did approach Jennifer that day -- but only to talk some serious smack about Hulk introducing "Macho Man" Randy Savage at his WWE Hall of Fame ceremony.

"I told her Hulk introducing 'Macho Man' into the Hall of Fame is bullsh*t ... He hated him. Everyone knew that."

Steiner says there were cops nearby during the airport incident -- "So if she felt her life was threatened, why didn't she talk to the cops?" 

As far as the investigation goes, Steiner says he has NOT yet been contacted by police. 

He did have one final thought -- "It's not my fault Hulk Hogan is afraid of me."

Ouch.

Scott Steiner Threatened To Kill Hulk HoganWhatcha gonna do brother, when a former wrestling star (allegedly) threatens to KILL YOU!?

Well, if you're Hulk Hogan -- you call the cops ... because that's exactly what happened during an alleged incident in San Jose involving Hulk's former wrestling ally Scott Steiner

Here's what we know ... Hulk's wife Jennifer flew into San Jose for WrestleMania on March 26th -- and claims Steiner grabbed her at baggage claim and said he plans to "kill Terry" [Hulk's real name] as soon as he lands. 

Sources close to the Hogans tell us ... Jennifer didn't recognize Steiner and called Hulk immediately -- who took the next flight into S.J. and went with her to file a police report early the next morning. 

We're told cops are now investigating Steiner for "felony terrorist threats" -- and so far, officials have already gathered airport surveillance video which we're told shows Steiner confronting Jennifer.   

As for Steiner, he's been very public about his dislike of Hogan for years -- and blames him for the demise of WCW wrestling ... where Scott and Hulk were allies in the NWO.

We reached out to Steiner for comment -- who told us, "Typical Hogan. He's just a punk."

Nick Hogan

I Erased Underage High School Pics ...

Juuust In Case

10/7/2014 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE
1006-nick-hogan-tmz-02Nick Hogan's hacked nude photos of girls he dated in high school ... were a huge wake up call to instantly trash the images because, technically, they're now child porn -- and Nick had no idea they still existed.

The pics were taken when Hogan was in high school and even though he and the women in the photos were the same age at the time ... Nick didn't want people -- and cops -- thinking he was in possession of illegal images.

In fact, Nick didn't even know the computer with the pics was connected to the cloud, because it's been in storage for years. As we first told you ... the hackers also snatched shots of Nick's mom in a thong. Super creepy, but not illegal. 

As for the high school souvenirs ... we're told Nick's now deleted all traces of 'em -- just to err on the side of caution.

Hackers Get Their First Male Victim

EXCLUSIVE
1003-nick-hogan-getty-tmz-FIX-01Nick Hogan just became the first male celebrity to have his naked photos hacked in the iCloud scandal.

The photos that were hacked are voluminous and graphic. There are pics going back to his high school escapades, various girlfriends in various states of undress and sexual positions, penis pics and stuff like that.

The weirdest hack ... there are 2 photos of Nick's mom Linda in a thong, bent over and showing off her butt. Nick says those pics were NOT in his iCloud!

And here's the dark side. Nick kept pics of several girlfriends during his teenage years, and the girls were underage at the time. He believes the hackers are playing with fire because they constitute child porn. As for why Nick kept the pics ... he says he's kept almost everything from his life that was recorded or photographed.

Nick claims -- just like some of the female celebs -- some of the pics are not his ... notably the penis pic.

Whatcha Gonna Do With 'Racist' Dress Code?

DESTROY IT!!

EXCLUSIVE
0925-hogan-dress-code-sign-tmz-01
Hulk Hogan says he's not racist ... and neither is his restaurant ... so he's putting the HURT on a controversial dress code at his Tampa eatery ... that appears to target black people.

We talked to Hulk about the sign posted at Hogan's Beach ... barring anyone who wears excessively baggy attire, low-hanging pants, do-rags, bandanas, oversized or excessive jewelry -- all stuff popular with the urban crowd.

Hulk -- who doesn't own the eatery but licenses his name to it -- tells us he called the restaurant's managers personally ... and demanded the sign be taken down -- permanently ... and they agreed.

Hogan says the dress code was modeled after ones used at Las Vegas and Miami pool parties -- He says it was never meant to be racist, but understands some people take it that way ... so he 86'd it.

Don't Dress Like a Black Guy

Hulk Hogan's got a cool beach restaurant in Florida -- but if you wanna enjoy a "coconut ginger mojito" during a concert at the eatery ... you better not show up dressing like an urban stereotype. 

Check out the dress code outside Hogan's Beach in Tampa -- which essentially bars people who wear clothes popular with the black community.

The Hulk no-no's include:

-- No oversized t-shirts extending past the mid thigh
-- No excessively baggy attire
-- No low hanging pants or shorts
-- No hats facing sideways or back facing
-- No oversized or excessive jewelry
-- No camouflage (unless with military ID) 
-- No workout clothing (including track suits, jump suits, sweat pants or basketball shorts)
-- No high-top sneakers

And get this ... if you plan to wear a do-rag or a bandana, FORGET ABOUT GETTING IN ... uhhh, Hulk's wearing one ON THE FRIGGIN' SIGN!!!! 

We spoke with an employee at the restaurant, who said you can wear just about anything for lunch or dinner, but the dress code is strictly enforced during concert events. When we asked him about wearing oversized jewelry, he said, "I don't want to sound stereotypical ..." and then he trailed off.

We spoke with Hulk, who says he licenses his name to the restaurant but didn't know about the dress code and he's looking into it right now.

By the way, check out the promotional video for the restaurant -- no black people. However, there is a white dude wearing the FORBIDDEN camouflage shorts.

No word if he had military ID. 

Linda Hogan's Ex

I Got Hosed ...

On Her Boat

0801-charlie-hill-swipe-inf-01Linda Hogan's ex-BF Charlie Hill claims she made him do a bunch of grunt work for free -- and we uncovered photos of him breaking a sweat aboard her yacht ... during their happier days.

TMZ broke the story ... Hill is suing Hogan for $1.5 mil, claiming she never gave him a dime for all the labor he put in during their 4-year relationship.

In these 2010 pics ... Charlie's relegated to hauling in a hose on her yacht -- aptly named Alimoney (bet Hulk Hogan must love that).

The Love Boat this ain't.

Linda Hogan

My Ex BF is a Leech and an Ingrate

EXCLUSIVE
0731-linda-hogan-tmz-02Linda Hogan is scoffing at her ex-BF's claim he was treated and paid like a day laborer during their relationship, saying he lived in the lap of luxury the entire time they were banging.

Sources very close to the former couple tell us ... the then 48-year-old ex-wife of Hulk Hogan paid full freight for then 19-year-old Charlie Hill ... from his wardrobe, to his food, to lavish vacations ... even an allowance.

We're told Linda is steaming over Charlie's $1.5 million lawsuit ... demanding money for the chores he performed, including waxing her yacht, fertilizing 25 acres of avocado trees and supervising a chain saw gang.

Linda says Charlie never had a real job during their entire 4-year relationship. She's especially irked about the boat waxing business, saying he wanted to become a boat captain and she paid for classes to get him certified.  And waxing is part of the deal, right? 

Linda's lawyer Ray Rafool tells us, "Linda is embarrassed for Charlie and can't believe he'd say such things considering the relationship they had."

The relationship, we're guessing, is defined by a math problem:  How many times does 19 go into 48?

Linda Hogan's Ex BF

She Treated Me Like a Day Laborer

7/31/2014 2:36 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE
0731_Charlie-hill-composite2Linda Hogan treated her 19-year-old boyfriend like a guy holding up a sign at Home Depot ... this according a lawsuit he filed against her for $1.5 MILLION for his menial labor.

You'll recall ... Linda -- then 48 -- started dating 19-year-old Charlie Hill after she split from hubby Hulk Hogan.

Charlie claims in his lawsuit -- obtained by TMZ -- Linda took advantage of their relationship and made him do all sorts of things, including wax the yacht, dig a creek and fertilize 25 acres of avocado trees.

Charlie's list of laborious chores goes on and on ... pulling reeds from the lake, construction, landscaping and running a chain saw team.

Charlie does not mention in the lawsuit ... he was living off Linda in a Simi Valley mansion on a lake.

But there's a twist.  We've learned Linda and Charlie struck a settlement when they split -- he promised confidentiality and she let him keep his truck, dirt bike and the engagement ring he gave her. And he got $9K.

We're told Linda is now furious ... because Charlie did an interview violating the confidentiality agreement.

So Linda's lawyer, Ray Rafool, has filed a lawsuit against Charlie asking for an order gagging him. We reached out to Linda's rep, Gary Smith ... he had no comment.

My Stolen Boot

Has Been Returned

EXCLUSIVE

Hulk Hogan's stolen boot has found its way home ... thanks in part to your good friends at TMZ.

The Hulkster tells TMZ the boot was returned today by one of the women involved in the theft. We're told the husband of one of the women involved (it's unclear which) saw TMZ's story about the theft and pressured the group to come clean. 

According to Hulk, the woman who took the boot had returned home to Michigan, but left it in the car of one of the other women ... who lives in nearby Tampa. When the women called the store to say they would return the boot, the store then called the cops ... who were waiting when the woman arrived with the boot. 

The woman who returned the boot was not arrested, but we're told a warrant has been issued back in Michigan for the woman who actually lifted the boot.

Hulk Hogan Surveillance Video

Middle-Aged Thieves

Caught on Tape!

EXCLUSIVE
031914_hulk_store_security_launch
The women who walked off with an expensive piece of memorabilia from Hulk Hogan's shop in Florida were all caught on camera ... and TMZ has the surveillance video.

As we first reported, Hogan filed a police report Wednesday in Clearwater after he claimed four women conspired to steal a valuable piece of Hulkamania memorabilia ... a signed boot. 

In the video, you can see the women make their way into the Hogan's Beach Shop ... and then congregate around the front desk clerk. Then something happens outside and the clerk, followed by four women, leaves the store to investigate. 

But cameras pick up one of the women walking back into the store, walking straight to the back of the store, snatching the boot ... and calmly walking out. Cops described the woman as "a heavyset female in her 50s."

The investigation is ongoing.

RIPPED OFF My Store!

Hulk Hogan's Florida beach shop was hit by three chicks who distracted the manager ... while a fourth made off with a signed boot. Simple, and effective. 

Hogan tells TMZ his staff discovered one of the pieces of Hulk memorabilia -- a signed wrestling boot -- went missing. But a quick look at surveillance video solved the mystery.

Here's what happened ... four girls came in and chatted up the manager. After luring the manager to the front of the store, one of the four snuck back in and lifted the boot.   Someone who has seen the video tells TMZ ... the women are large and in charge.

Hulk tells us he's planning to file a police report today and hand over the surveillance video.  He also says the girls showed off Michigan IDs to the manager, so they're probably in town for spring break.
