In an interview with The National Enquirer, Barbara Leslie, the estranged wife of former WWE superstar Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake (real name Ed Leslie), commented on the allegations from Linda Hogan, the ex-wife of Hulk Hogan, that Brutus and Hulk have had a homosexual relationship, which has led to both Brutus and Hogan filing a lawsuit against Linda.
Barbara noted that she has watched Brutus and Hogan interact for the past 20 years and that there have been many times when she felt that the duo were much too close for comfort. Barbara noted that Beefcake has not spoken to his own daughter in months, however noted that Beefcake could be in communication with Hogan several times in one day alone. Barbara stated that she has absolutely no knowledge of a homosexual relationship going on between Brutus Beefcake and Hulk Hogan and that Linda Hogan has never shared anything with her that would indicate that she has knowledge of that happening, stating that she has been acquainted with Linda for a long time and has never known her to say anything that serious unless she has something to back it up with, so Linda must know something.
Barbara then noted that Hogan visited their house after having recent back surgery and that Brutus ran to the restroom before Hogan could make it there, to put the toilet seat down for him and thought that it was odd that one man would do that for another man and that the boundaries of the intimate bromance that they share are definitely blurred and she just finds it all extraordinarily suspicious.
