Hulk Hogan Sues Over Leaked Sex Tape, Bubba The Love Sponge Denies All Responsibility

Hulk Hogan Sues Bubba The Love Sponge For Leaking Sex Tape

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.

Jennifer Gimenez On Episode 6 Of Rehab With Dr. Drew: “Never, Ever, Ever Walk Down A Dark Alley”

Rehab With Dr. Drew
Each week after Rehab With Dr. Drew, we’ll be talking to some of the staff on hand at the Pasadena Recovery Center to find out everything that went down in front of and behind the camera with this season’s group of patients. This week we spoke to our friend Jennifer Gimenez, the resident technician at the facility who had battled demons on her own, and she offered up her insight and some behind-the-scenes details for this episode, which involved a scary episode involving two runaway cast members who find themselves in the middle of gang territory. Though everything ended safely, Jenn gave us the real story of how the situation spun out of control and the entire group was put in danger.

Tell me the story of what really happened between the guys who approached you, Eric and Drewbee.

We were at the AA meeting and within three minutes, Eric and Drew decided to go outside and smoke a cigarette, and within moments, they left. I was running around the streets of north Pasadena looking for them, which is not a very good neighborhood, and there are some gang houses around there, it’s just not a safe neighborhood. So the guys decide to take a walk and I’m running down the street in an unsafe place, and I find them in a dark alley. I ran up and, you know, that whole confrontation between the three of us lasted longer than what you guys see, and I told them “You’re lucky nothing happened to you guys.” They were like “Chill out, enough already!” and I was like “No, you don’t get to leave the group and you didn’t even let me know! What if something happened?” and boom, this car comes around. Read more…
