Hulk Hogan
just announced ... he's suing for more than $100 MILLION over his leaked sex tape.

Hulk's attorney spoke at a news conference in Tampa moments ago, announcing two lawsuits filed today by the wrestler -- one against Bubba the Love Sponge and his ex-wife for illicitly recording Hulk without his permission, and another against Gawker for publishing the tape.

Hulk's attorney says the wrestler is seeking $100 MILLION in damages from Gawker stemming from the leaked footage. It's unclear what he's seeking from Bubba and Bubba's ex Heather Clem.

In the suit, obtained by TMZ, 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."

Hulk's attorney says Bubba and Co.'s actions were "illegal, outrageous, and exceeded the bounds of human decency."

In addition to forking over damages, Hulk's team wants Bubba, Gawker, and anyone else in possession of the sex footage to turn it over asap in order for it to be destroyed forever.

Hulk's other attorney David R. Houston also reiterated -- they will continue to go after anyone who republishes the footage with a vengeance.

This is like spanish TV. They can take something so small and unimportant and turn it into something to keep the person in question relevant. Damn!

"exceeded the bounds of human decency." - Like screwing your best friends wife (with is approval) while you were still married? Was this around the same time your drunk son put a kid in a coma for life?

Sorry HH, don't feel sorry for you at all. If he had some decent morals and did not sleep with a married woman, while being married, he wouldn't be in this situation. He has to deal with the consequences of his immoral behavior.

And Bubba's legal team will hit the courts with the tape and state emphatically that Hogan KNEW he was being taped by showing Bubba off camera telling Hogan I'll be in the office. Right, then Bubba's legal team came ask, if HOGAN WAS SO HORRIFIED and felt so betrayed why did he go directly to Howard Stern and complain it wasn't his BEST PERFORMANCE, instead of going directly to the police? I call Shennigans on the whole thing. I give it two weeks and we'll hear the lawsuit is dropped and they've all settled out of court with the attorneys claiming that they can't give details of the amount. Bullcrappuckies and then some.

Hulk and this story just keep getting more and more pathetic. $100 million? Like he thinks people would of actually bought this stupid tape? Now his attorneys look like fools also. Pathetic and desperate, all of them.
