Is Hulk Hogan suing Bubba The Love Sponge? Yes, sir!
Radio DJ Bubba as well as gossip site Gawker are subjects of two lawsuits filed by Hogan, aka Terry Gene Bollea, for their parts in leaking a sex tape that features the Wrestlemania star and Bubba’s ex-wife, Heather Clem, in a compromising position (quite a few of them, actually).
In an interview with self-professed King of All Media Howard Stern last week, the entertainment wrestler wouldn’t even entertain the notion Bubba was in on the Candid Camera-style shenanigans and said he had no idea who might have set him up.
Oh, the difference a week makes. Keep reading for more details and a rather interesting twist to this story below! Also, check out Hulk Hogan’s attorney announcing the lawsuits in a Monday press conference here above.
Hulk Hogan Sex Tape Update: Hulk Hogan Suing Bubba and Gawker Over Video Leak
First, a quick recap of the Hulk Hogan sex tape scandal thus far. Earlier this month, gossip site Gawker released an uncensored, one-minute clip that appears to show Hulk Hogan and Heather Clem having sexual relations (AKA doing the nasty) while Bubba The Love Sponge, who was still married to Clem at the time, was home and well-aware of the goings-on.
On the video, a man presumed to be Bubba can be heard telling Hulk and Heather to enjoy themselves before leaving the pair alone in a bedroom that just happened to feature an allegedly-hidden camera mounted to the ceiling, aimed squarely at the bed.
TMZ also reportedly received a copy of the Hulk Hogan sex tape and said Bubba The Love Sponge is seen or heard again at the end of the tape. After Hulk left, Bubba allegedly told Heather that if they ever wanted to retire, all they would have to do would be leak the footage. Now, it seems Heather Clem and Bubba The Love Sponge Clem, who were divorced earlier this year, may end up paying out instead of cashing in.
Hulk Hogan Suing Bubba, Gawker And…Heather Clem!
Hulk Hogan is suing Bubba for invasion of privacy, and Gawker Media (to the tune of $100 mil, by the way) for refusing multiple requests that the one-minute clip of the Hulk Hogan sex tape seen here be taken down. But that’s not all. Hulk is suing Heather Clem, too. That’s right; not only is Hulk going after Bubba and Gawker, but his former bedmate, as well!
Check out video of the press conference announcing the two lawsuits (Bubba and Heather are being sued jointly in one suit) above for more legal specifics, and visit the links in this article for more. (Note: if noted, links will direct you to the sex tape clip, but no nudity will appear on your screen unless you click ‘play’ on the Gawker site. The clip is graphic, NSFW and for adults 18 and over only.)
