Brooke Hogan Says She Skipped Dad Hulk's Third Wedding to 'Create Distance' for 'Healing and Happiness'

Brooke Hogan is getting candid about why she was absent from dad Hulk Hogan’s recent wedding.

The Hogan Knows Best reality star posted a lengthy letter on Instagram to clear up some misconceptions about why she chose not to attend her father’s nuptials to Sky Daily last week, suggesting that it all came down to their new family "dynamics."

Brooke, 35, started off her post noting that despite valuing her “privacy,” she wanted to address the matter and “shut it all down here” instead of “leaving it to speculation.”

“As we all experience this with our own families, the dynamics of a family unit continuously change over the years,” the singer and entrepreneur wrote in her post on Instagram.

“With that being said, my family has experienced a LOT of change,” she continued. “With all of it happening in the public eye, I’ve had to learn how to best navigate those changes as they come, which has been difficult to say the least.”

Hulk, 70, and first wife Linda Hogan — Brooke’s mom — were married from 1983 to 2009. They also share son Nick, 33. The former professional wrestler then wed Jennifer McDaniel in 2010, but filed for divorce in October 2021 before he began dating Daily.

“For my own journey to healing and happiness, I have chosen to create some distance between myself and my family, and am focusing on people and things that heal my heart and align with my own personal beliefs, goals and values,” Brooke went on.

She concluded the post, “I wish him well. ❤️”

The retired WWE star, whose real name is Terry Bollea, tied the knot with Daily, a yoga instructor, in a small ceremony on Friday in Clearwater, Florida, according to TMZ.

In photos obtained by the outlet, Hulk and his new bride posed for photos together after the ceremony, with him in a simple black tuxedo and a black version of his signature bandana and Daily, 45, in a glittery white strapless gown with a sweetheart neckline and lace train.

Brooke has supported her father in the past and even defended him after he faced major backlash in 2015 following the release of an audio transcript featuring him using racial slurs when talking about her then-boyfriend. As a result, Hulk parted ways with the WWE at the time and was removed from its Hall of Fame. (He was later reinstated, following a three-year suspension.)

"I realized this behavior and this type of verbiage is unacceptable. So for me to digress and say something so foul is devastating," Hulk, who retired from the WWE in 2021, told PEOPLE in 2015.

Brooke also told PEOPLE at the time that she forgave her father for his actions.

“What he said was not right, but I know that’s not who he is,” she said. “He has told me that he made some really bad choices, but that it never changed that I was his baby girl and he loved me and be would lost without his kids.”

Brooke added, “Maybe the positive of this whole situation is shedding light on the need to eliminate hateful words from our vocabulary altogether."
