If you are a WWE fan, you should be familiar with Brooke Hogan, the daughter of legendary wrestler, Hulk Hogan. Brooke first came to media attention after she appeared in her dad’s hit reality TV series, Hogan Knows Best. She later launched her own show, a sequel to the former titled Brooke Knows Best.
In addition to reality TV, Brooke Hogan also ventured into a music career starting from 2002. While her debut single About Us made it to the top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100 chart, her debut album Undiscovered also witnessed significant success. But having failed to record success with her subsequent music projects, Brooke Hogan sought a career in acting and appeared in a number of films. She, however, later made a return to wrestling in 2012. So far, her efforts have not all been in vain as Brooke has built an admirable wealth for herself. Also worthy of note is the fact that while trying to find her feet career-wise through the years, Brooke Hogan experimented in the aspect of romance.
Who Has She Dated or Married?
Jerry Reid was apparently the first guy Brooke Hogan dated. The two were a thing between 2005 and 2006. During this time, Reid featured alongside Brooke on their family show, Hogan Knows Best. After Reid, Miss Hogan had short-lived affairs with a number of guys between 2006 and 2008.
Meanwhile, the sort of intimacy that exists between Brooke Hogan and her father, Hulk is one that has been raising eyebrows over the years. Brooke and her dad are so close that the latter has always been a major influence in her romantic affairs, and it’s no overstatement if we say he has the final say.
Starting from the time Miss Hogan began appearing on Hogan Knows Best, Hulk has always been overprotective of her, dictating whom or not she goes out with. To the dismay of fans, Hulk’s interference in Brooke’s love life has not always been welcoming.
In 2009, Brooke began dating black rapper, Yannique Barker. The next year, however, saw the duo break up. Not long after that, some racist comments Hulk made about Barker leaked to the media. The wrestler and reality star stated point-blank that he is a racist while mocking Barker’s height in the leaked tape. Although his actions ultimately cost him his contract with WWE, the damage to his daughter’s relationship has already been done.
Many fans were high with hopes of Brooke Hogan finally getting married this time, but they were once again disappointed. Miss Hogan began dating Dallas Cowboys star, Phil Costa in May 2013. On June, the duo got engaged after Phil popped the big question to which Brooke gave a ‘yes’.
Posting a photo of Costa bending a knee to propose to her, an overly excited Brooke took to Instagram to inform fans about her engagement, describing it as the “happiest moment” of her life while also referring to Phil as her “best friend”. This happiness was, however, short-lived as the duo soon after, called off their engagement. Brooke has since deleted the celebratory IG post.
Again, Hulk revealed in a social media post that he was the reason behind Brooke and Phil’s breakup. According to him, he won’t have his daughter marry someone who doesn’t “walk the walk” and “talk the talk” neither would he have someone who “got mad at him” or “got in his face”. His post suggests that Hulk may have gotten into a quarrel with Phil or that the latter doesn’t buy into his ‘Hulkamania’ lifestyle.
Meet Hogan’s New Boyfriend
Sometime in 2014, following the end of her engagement, Brooke Hogan began another romantic relationship with an unidentified guy. The duo first stepped out as a pair at Floyd Mayweather Jr and Marcos Maidana face-off in February. Over time, however, Miss Hogan stopped posting photos of her new man and also deleted the previous posts she shared about him.
Brooke is currently dating a Detroit and Nashville-based entrepreneur and investor called Kyle Rowe. As of February 2020, the pair are still going strong and appears to be very cool and happy together. Unlike Brooke Hogan, Kyle Rowe keeps a low profile and runs a private Instagram account. Aside from his profession, not much is know about him.
Here’s Brooke’s 2020 Valentine post about her love, Kyle:
How Much is She Worth?
Brooke Hogan sits on an estimated net worth of $6 million which mostly comes from her music career, as well as her acting venture. In the early years of her music career, Brooke opened for big acts like Backstreet Boys and Hilary Duff. Hogan would later make over $120,000 from the sales of her debut album, Undiscovered.
In addition to income from her wrestling, reality TV and acting career exploits, Brooke also made some meaningful cash from modeling. The socialite was just fifteen when she landed her first modeling contract worth thousands of dollars. All things being equal, Brooke Hogan’s net worth holds the promise of soaring in the coming years.
