Washington (ANI): Linda Bollea, Hulk Hogan's ex-wife, has slammed her former hairdresser Tracy Morgan for the testimony she had given against her in the Pinellas County Courthouse in Florida. Morgan claimed that the reality star spends a large portion of her 40,000 dollars per month alimony payout from estranged hubby Hulk on drugs.
She also accused Linda of being violent toward her husband and said she often came into the Tampa salon intoxicated, and that Bollea had a 'favourite combination' of drugs, namely marijuana and roxicodone pills.The testimony came after a two-hour hearing following Hulk's motion to reduce the amount of money he has to give his ex-wife.
But now Linda's lawyer has come back with a reply contradicting the hairdresser's. "Morgan's testimony was a complete fabrication; I don't think the judge found Tracy Morgan to be that credible. At one point when she went on and on interrupting the judge [and] said in comment 'Man get off your soap box'," Fox News quoted Linda's attorney, Raymond Rafool, as saying.
"I think it's shameful for her to come up and make up these stories just so she can get in the limelight and be in the Hulk Hogan camp," he said.
According to Bollea's people, 11 days prior to the hearing, Hulk paid Morgan 3500 dollars for her to give hair extensions to both him and his girlfriend, but made the check out to Tracy's daughter Brittany in an attempt "to hide the true identity of who was getting paid".
"Hulk Hogan is more interested in spending money trying to control Linda and dirty her name than he really is about trying to save money as he says," Rafool said. "About Hulk never being violent, first of all, she would never know that, because she wasn't at their house all the time. Her saying that Linda took punches at Hulk Hogan, I find that to be incredible," he stated.
But according to the former pro wrestler's rep, Linda's lawyer's story on the situation is 'baseless and just plain false'. "Not only did Tracy spend a lot of time in the Hogan household, but she often travelled with the family and testified to witnessing many situations where Linda was physically and verbally abusive to Hulk," the rep said. "In regards to the checks written, Brittany is a co-owner of the salon and many clients make their payments out to her," the rep added.
Morgan also slammed Bollea's accusations that her testimony was based on lies. "I told the truth on the witness stand. He (Rafool) is wrong," Morgan responded. "But it's his job to represent her the best possible way that he can and I guess that's what he's doing. But everything I said was true and I stand by it. I'm going to stick with no comment from here on out," she added.
