John Graziano, the 23 year old friend of Nick Hogan who was a passenger in Hogan’s car wreck last summer, remains in critical condition at James A. Haley VA Medical Center. Graziano’s parents and attorneys made a made a public statement on Wednesday afternoon and addressed the media.
It was announced that Linda, Brooke and Nick Bollea are no longer welcome at the hospital bedside of John Graziano.
Graziano family attorneys said the reason Hulk Hogan’s family is no longer allowed visiting is because the trio went to the hospital on Valentine’s Day with gifts and images of their visit showed up on several celebrity news Web sites. “We believe that it was a total (public relations) stunt,” said attorney Kimberley Kohn.
An attorney for Nick Bollea says that’s nonsense. “The Bollea family has been visiting John for the last seven or eight months, and there’s been no PR about it whatsoever,” said Tampa attorney Morris “Sandy” Weinberg Jr. “It’s a bunch of nonsense to suggest their visits to John are a PR stunt. That’s crazy.”
Terry Bollea, better known as Hulk Hogan, was not part of the Valentine’s Day stunt and still visits Graziano about every month.
