When Hogan Knows Best star Hulk Hogan visited the VH1 offices a mere six days ago to appear on Big Morning Buzz Live, he spoke of his sex tape and the rumors that it was leaked by his best friend, Bubba The Love Sponge. Hogan told the show that he refused to believe Bubba was involved in releasing the tape, which also featured Bubba’s wife, Heather Clem. “At the end of the day,” Hogan said, “in my heart, if this is true, which, I don’t believe it’s true, and if it’s true he was never my friend.” Well, something made Hogan change his mind because he’s now suing Bubba and Gawker Media, the site that released the tape, for $100 million.
In the suit, 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.” But Bubba’s not having any of it and maintains his innocence, even going so far as to accuse Hogan of playing a role in having the tape released. On his radio show this morning, Bubba said he’s never even seen the tape and “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.”
There’s a joke in here about cleaning up leaks like this with a love sponge, but pardon us for being too classy to go there.
