Brutus 'The Barber' Beefcake

I'm SUING Over Gay Allegations

12/12/2011 5:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Brutus The Barber Beefcake and Hulk Hogan
Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake is adamant he never had a gay relationship with Hulk Hogan ... despite allegations made by Hulk's ex-wife ... and now Brutus tells TMZ he's prepared to SUE.

Mr. Beefcake -- real name Ed Leslie -- tells TMZ ... Linda Hogan was flat out lying when she went on the radio back in June and said the former WWE stars engaged in homoerotic behavior outside the wrestling ring.

Hulk has already filed a defamation lawsuit against Linda -- claiming she also made up allegations that he physically abused her during their marriage.

Beefcake tells us he plans to follow Hulk's lead ... and has already instructed his attorney to draft up the lawsuit, which he claims he will file in the very near future.

Brutus tells TMZ, "I've known [Linda] for almost 40 years ... but when she starts trying to ruin our careers, it just aint fair." 

He adds, "Hulk is a tremendous person ... a great man who deserves to be happy."

I bet these guys have spent more time in bed together than
in the ring together. They most likely oiled each other up right before they did the nasty. I bet they are a gay as the outfits they still wear.

Ruin your career! You haven't been relevant since the 80's beefcake. With that said Linda is just a gold digger that is living it up with her young boyfriend on Hulk's money. I would be pissed off to.

Note to all heterosexual men:

Next time you think you may go ahead and marry that white trash ho you are banging, just picture in your mind Linda Hogan with 70% of everything you have worked for all your life, and not content with that, continues to trash you publicly.

Don't do it!

Nobody cares if you're Gay Hulk. When you spend so much effort trying to dispute your ex. You're only making a case for her and wasting your money. It's ok to be Gay now man whether you are or aren't.

If this was true and Hogan was gay wouldnt this be out along time ago? Linda Hogan is a lier, she feeds like a parasite trying to control Hogan with words. she will be the one sucked dry of life after all said and done. She is Hurting because he's happy with his new life. She's a maggot just plan and simple. MR.Hogan you live your life the way it should be ''HAPPY AND DRAMA FREE''

She probably meant to say that he engaged in homo-erotic behavior in the ring...along with all the other wrestlers...

Grown men, in tights, sliding their sweating bodies all over each other, play acting like they are passionately upset with one other, and they are now worried someone might think they are gay? Really?

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

She's such a viscious bitch. It wasn't enough to financially take him to the cleaners so she could continue to be a lazy slug the rest of her life? She has to defame him like that? He never did anything like that to her. Plus, she's a mother, didn't she think about what this would do to her relationship with her kids? If he defamed her in the worst way he'd be well within his rights. Straight people don't want to be known as gay anymore than gay people don't want to be known as pedophiles. If the allegations actually did happen, that's his own damn business whether he wants it quiet or public & the talking heads can f*** off. The guy's paid enough.

No, you're ruining your "career" in acknowledging her allegations. I had never heard of you prior to reading this and wrestling fans can't read and the few that can wouldn't believe it anyway because they believe that whole goofy wrestling BS is real deal. Be careful jumping on Terry's trip, if that chick knows something [and I'm certain its true because it would be REALLY STUPID to just conjure up a story like that and expect it not to be challenge---she may spill more beans... so think about it.
