Hulk Hogan has announced that he is suing for more than $100 million over his leaked sex tape. Hulk’s attorney announced at a Tampa press conference yesterday that the wrestler filed lawsuits against Gawker and his BFF, Bubba the Love Sponge, for illicitly recording the Hulk having sex without his knowledge, leaking and publishing the tape.
Hulk’s lawyer says he is seeking $100 million in damages.
In the suit, obtained by TMZ, Hogan claims he “had a reasonable expectation of privacy in his consensual, intimate activities in a private bedroom and reasonably believed that his privacy was safe and protected.”
Hulk’s attorney says Bubba and Co.’s actions were “illegal, outrageous, and exceeded the bounds of human decency.”
In addition to forking over damages, Hulk’s team wants Bubba, Gawker, and anyone else in possession of the sex footage to turn it over asap in order for it to be destroyed forever.
Hulk’s other attorney David R. Houston also reiterated — they will continue to go after anyone who republishes the footage with a vengeance.
In a new development this morning, Bubba the Love Sponge went on his radio show this morning to blast the Hulk, saying he thinks the Hulk himself had something to do with the leaked footage.
Bubba the Love Sponge just went on his radio show … and claimed Hulk Hogan may have played a role in the release of the sex tape … despite several public denials.
During the show, Bubba made it clear … he and Hulk are no longer best friends — in fact, it sounds like they pretty much hate each other’s guts.
At one point in the show, Bubba called Hulk a “self-centered” man who has delusionally convinced himself that Nick was innocent in that 2007 car crash, Brooke actually has talent and that Linda is “whore.” Bubba actually defends Linda throughout the show.
Bubba never really denied having anything to do with the sex tape — but said, “I’m gonna be honest with you, I have not seen the tape … including me supposedly bragging and being a horse’s ass.”
We broke the story, there is footage of Bubba on the sex tape … talking about selling the footage if he ever wanted to be rich enough to retire.
On the radio show, Bubba continued, “At the end of the day, I can’t even comment on the validity … [Hulk] could have had something to do with the leak of it,”
Bubba also touched on the fact that he let Hulk have sex with his then-wife Heather Clem — saying they all consensually agreed to it and reminding Hulk, “Nobody put a gun to your head.”
