Hulk Hogan resubmits $100 million lawsuit over sex tape

Hulk Hogan is back with a vengeance — in court, that is.

The former wrestler has refiled a $100 million lawsuit against media gossip site Gawker for posting a portion of his sex tape online, TMZ.com reports. Hogan initially sued the website in October 2011, but dismissed the suit in federal court last month in order to refile in a Florida state court, where he is also suing Heather Clem, the woman on the sex tape. The dismissal was necessary to consolidate his claims against both Clem and the website.

Hogan also initially sued Clem's ex-husband, radio personality Bubba the Love Sponge, claiming both he and Clem had a role in leaking the footage. That lawsuit was settled, and Bubba apologized to Hogan on the air.

Hulk Hogan drops sex tape lawsuit against website


HULK Hogan has dropped a £60million lawsuit against a website that posted a sex tape starring the wrestler.

The ring veteran filed the case last year after Gawker published a one-minute 40-second clip of Hulk romping with Heather Clem – the wife of his former best friend, radio DJ Bubba The Love Sponge.

The explicit footage surfaced online in October and featured Hulk stripping off before climbing into a four-poster bed with Heather.

It was thought to be a snippet from a video up to 30 minutes long.

Hulk claimed the X-rated film was shot without his consent and took Gawker to court – but he’s now decided to quit proceedings.

He voluntarily dismissed the case “without prejudice”, according to TMZ.

That means he can file again in future if he wishes.

In October, Hulk settled a privacy wrangle with Bubba – who subsequently revoked his claim that the wrestler leaked the tape himself to get publicity via a public apology letter.

The radio DJ announced: “It is my belief that Hulk is not involved, and has not ever been involved, in trying to release the video, or exploit it, or otherwise gain from the video's release in any way.”

He added he is now “committed to helping Hulk and his attorneys find whoever is responsible for the release of the tape”.

Hulk’s explicit extramarital antics brought shame upon his family – and he was last year reportedly fearing more sex videos could emerge.

A source told RadarOnline: “After the first video was leaked he warned Linda, Brooke and Nick that he could have been caught on camera in the past.

“The family is absolutely mortified their name has been sullied in such a tacky way. They never imagined that Hulk could drag them into such an embarrassing situation.

“Hulk’s admission has left the family praying that their reputation isn’t further muddied – last week was a week to forget for the Hogans, including Linda’s DUI arrest.

“But only time will tell if another sex tape finds it way on the internet. The family is certainly bracing for the worst."

If he just sold the sex tape, he'd make that much and more.

I lol'd to this. The Hulk's family is a disgrace. Both Nick and Linda have DUIs with the former having been involved in a serious car accident that seriously injured another guy. Linda Hogan cheated on Hulk, with a younger guy and is basically trying to destroy Hulk herself. Hogan is an embarrassment himself. Apart from that you've also the tv shows Hogan Knows Best and Brooke Knows Best, which as far as i'm concerned didn't really paint them in a good light. But that's what you get for exposing your family like that, just ask Ozzy Osbourne. If their reputation hasn't been destroyed by now then it's only a matter of time before they do something else stupid that will.
