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.

He has an ego the size of Texas. He still can't get over the fact that he's a washed up has-been. That sex tape screams nothing but desperation to stay relevant and it's sad.

Ya know, I wouldn't be surprised if this whole thing was a set up by Hulk and his friends to sue a major website for millions of dollars, and then Hulk and his friends could split the money. Seriously, he knows his friend doesn't have 100 million dollars.

"Turn it over to be destroyed?" It's not like it's a video tape, it's a digital file lol. You can't destroy it at this point if you wanted to. It's on the net forever.

I guess I am in the minority here, but I think he has grounds for a law suit. No, HH is not attractive, yes he was cheesy as hell for what he did, and no he shouldn't have cheated on his wife, but that does not give your best friend the right to film you having sex without your permission. PERIOD.
