Sues for $100 MILLION

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.

100 Million dollars?


WOW. Over a tape you have known about for YEARS? Everyone is supposed to eat up your PHONY disbelief and shock....
Stunt queen extraordinaire...too bad there is absolute PROOF you have known about this tape for years and this entire idea of you being in shock over the sex tape is a BIG FAT SCAM/PUBLICITY STUNT. Why didn't you go after people THREE years ago, you know, the 1st time it was being shopped around?
The evidence is on the internet and I hope everyone SEES it and uncover's this idiots lies. Why is TMZ even given this man attention? Surely they have heard about the fact that Hulk is a lying jack-ass by now.

The entire Hogan family is a complete embarrassment. Nick Hogan, maiming his best friend for life in a drunk driving accident. His mother linda (the whore) starts screwing a guy her son's age shortly after the accident (stay classy). The daughter brooke trying to start a music career (lmfao)-hows that going?! And finally Terry...I mean "hulk" hogan. Mr. Steroids has now been caught screwing his best friend's wife (while he was married to his hooker wife linda). WHAT A P.O.S. Next time hogan "wrestles" in the ring, the entire crowd should give him the silent treatment.

Looks like Hulk got the memo from dr. Evil..... '100 million dollars' ..... yes the attorneys love you for the donation. Do these geezers not realize it's already all over the internet at this point. These threats they're making are useless. Hulk, you are quite the vain bastard too.

She was not married to Bubba when this tape was made and they were not married till much later and divorced pretty quick..

Bubba was pretty much only dating her

As for Hulk he was split from his wife and they did this a few times before the divorce... nothing new here... hell during the taping of the show they split twice before the last time for good.

Hulk did not know he was being taped..

I'd ask for a good Jackass-style kick to the groin for Sponge Bub'...and from Heather...one more time in the sack, sans camera. That horse face is hot.

I don't care about Hulk Hogan but I guess I missed something on the others stories I've read... can someone PLEASE explain to me why in the hell he was sleeping with his best friend's wife and why on earth was his friend letting him do that... (not to mention the BF's wife sleeping with Hulk)... I'm totally grossed out by this and seriously confused...

While still married, Hulk sleeps with his best friends' wife..does he not see that as "exceeding the bounds of human decency"? His lawyers are as pathetic as he is.
