Wrestling legend Hulk Hogan's daughter BROOKE has issued a public apology after accusing her father of abusing her mum.
The pop star admits the allegations she made against her dad were false.
She says, "I did it under significant pressure from my mother.
"It was only after I learned all the facts that I realised I made a big mistake in signing it."
The Hogans split last year (07) and the 20 year old sided with her mother, Linda Bollea, in a messy divorce battle between the former couple.
She reportedly signed a legal affidavit accusing her father, real name Terry Bollea, of verbally and physically abusing her mother during their marriage.
But the singer has since fallen out with her mum after learning Linda was dating a teenager, who was a year below her in high school, and now she's offering a statement to apologise for vilifying her dad.
Brooke admits to signing the affidavit, but immediately regretted her decision and asked for it not to be filed in court.
Her rep says, "The months-old document was signed by Brooke at a time when she was upset with her father."
Brooke, who now lives with her father, adds, "Using kids as pawns in a divorce is awful. Every day my mother resorts to this kind of behaviour makes it that much harder for us to ever have a relationship again."
