Linda Hogan has retracted her claim that her ex-husband Hulk Hogan carried on an intimate relationship with fellow wrestler Brutus Beefcake, real name Edward Leslie.

Linda made the allegations in her memoir Wrestling the Hulk: My Life Against the Ropes.

When asked during an interview on Matty P's Radio Happy Hour, “Do you believe that Hulk and Brutus Beefcake ever had an intimate relationship?” Linda replied, “A little bird told me, 'Yes, they think they did.'”

Linda apologized during a recent appearance on The Wendy Williams Show.

“When you're mad and you're going through a divorce, you say things you just don't mean,” she said. “Hulkster, I'm sorry. I love you and I will always love you.”

When Williams asked whether she missed her former married life, Linda said yes.

“I miss him and I miss the family, I miss the family unit … It was a good time with him.” (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)

Hulk earlier denied his ex-wife's accusations on the same program, saying, “If it was true, and I was gay, I'd embrace it and I'd tell you guys about it and I'd celebrate it.”
