Looks like Hulk Hogan means business with this whole sex tape thing. Normally when celebs cough Kim Kardashian cough have a sex tape, they put up a big stink the media about it, saying how it's a violation of their privacy, yada yada, but nobody ever really sues anyone, and then the next thing you know, the video is everywhere and somebody is making a lot of money. Presumably the celeb. But not Hogan. He's been saying since this rumor of this tape went around that he was gonna sue the bullocks off of everyone involved with it, and gosh darnit, he meant it! Hogan is not only suing the media company that published it, Gawker , but also his ex-best friend Bubba the Love Sponge , and Bubba's ex-wife, Hulk's sex partner, Heather Clem. I bet right about now Heather is wishing she'd told him to stuff his hulking hogan back in his pants! It's still unclear exactly who is behind the leak of the sex tape. Gawker says it was sent to them, but won't say by who. Awhile ago, we heard it might be one of Bubba's "disgruntled" former employees who hawked the tape.
Hogan, whose real name is Terry Bollea, is suing the media site for publishing a a portion of a tape that showed him having sex with Heather Clem, the wife of his close friend Bubba Clem. Kenneth Turkel, Hogan's attorney, asked 91 potential jurors if the tape would hurt their ability to be fair and impartial during the case. One female juror raised her hand and told Turkel it went against her beliefs as well as her 'relationship with Jesus Christ'. Another man said the entire case gave him 'serious problems', according to CNN Money. One woman said she was weary of watching the tape because of her year-marriage and religious beliefs, but said she was 'willing' to because of her duties as a citizen. Thirty-six of the 91 jurors in the pool were excused on Thursday after seven hours of questioning. A six-member jury was selected on Friday and opening statements will begin on Monday. Hogan, 62, said the video was made without his knowledge. He is suing Gawker for defamation and invasion of privacy. The site has claimed that it was okay to post the video because Hogan had publicly talked about his sex life in the past.
Clem also said that she was angry when she discovered that the encounter had been taped and told her husband to destroy the video. She testified that she believed he had done so, until Gawker published a portion of the tape in Gawker counters that its publishing of the footage in is protected by the First Amendment. Hogan broke into the wrestling business in the late 's, working under names like Terry Boulder. Hogan later starred alongside Christopher Lloyd in "Suburban Commando," one of many critical and commercial bombs Hogan was involved in. Hogan denied McMahon supplied or forced him to take the steroids, resulting in McMahon's acquittal. Hogan starred in "Hogan Knows Best," a reality show with his family, from to The show was abruptly cancelled after Hogan's wife, Linda Claridge, filed for divorce when she discovered Hogan cheated on her during filming. A few months prior to the divorce, Hogan was harshly criticized after his son was sent to jail for reckless driving that left a friend with irreversible brain damage. Tapes released by local police revealed Hogan and his son blaming the victim during a phone call and planning to capitalize on the crash with a reality TV deal.
