Hulk Hogan and his ex-wife Linda Hogan are having a rough week. While the two divorced nearly 5 years ago after having numerous problems in their marriage, they don’t seem to be doing that great apart either. Just this week, both Hulk and Linda made the headlines for some not-so-favorable issues.
Hulk, who starred with his wife and family on Hogan Knows Best, is the latest celebrity to be caught in the middle of a sex tape scandal. Ever wonder what’s under those spandex shorts? Well, now you don’t have to. Yesterday, the folks over at Gawker posted a very, very NSFW video of Hulk and a lady friend getting it on.
And speaking of Hulk and a lady friend and sex tapes, it seems this whole fiasco was foreshadowed by this photo of Hulk Hogan partying with Kim Kardashian posted by Kim earlier this week:
Let’s all scream it together, shall we? “I’ve got a sex tape, yes I do! I’ve got a sex tape, how ’bout you?!?”
Hulk obviously isn’t happy and is threatening to sue the website if they do not take it down, claiming they have no rights to the clip. (Good luck Hulk. Gawker and their other sites are just about the most notorious on the web for not backing down in the face of legal threats!)
Shortly after the video hit the web, Hulk’s rep spoke to TMZ, saying, “This tape was made secretly without Hulk’s knowledge or permission. We are going to do everything in our power to figure out who did it. Anyone displaying the tape will be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law.” Gawker allegedly received the footage for free from an anonymous source.
As for Linda, she’s dealing with some legal issues as well. According to TMZ, Linda was arrested just after 1:30 a.m. yesterday in Malibu on suspicion of DUI. The former reality star took Breathalyzer test and blew a 0.084 which is just above the legal limit of 0.08. She was booked and later released on $5,000 bail.
Linda had reportedly been driving home from an event in L.A. when she was pulled over for speeding. Linda’s rep explained to TMZ that she had a glass of wine on an empty stomach at the event and is also on antibiotics which can sometimes amp up the effects of alcohol.
Linda was also reportedly driving on a suspended license but her rep insists that was not the reason she was booked.
