Okay, everyone, we’re going to get through this.
Hulk Hogan has filed suit against Tampa Bay DJ Bubba “The Love Sponge” (shudder) Clem, his ex-wife Heather Clem, and Gawker over a sex tape involving Hogan and Bubba’s wife.
So, Hogan got permission from his then-BFF Bubba to have sex with his wife. Hogan did so. Bubba surreptitiously filmed it and then sent it to Gawker, who does what Gawker does and posts the tape.
Hulk’s response? Slap a lawsuit on all three of them. In the suit, Hogan states that the tape did ”severe and irreparable injury which cannot be adequately compensated by monetary damages.”
But $100 Million would be a killer start.
Hogan’s attorney says “Mr. Hogan had a reasonable expectation of his privacy, just as all Americans have a reasonable expectation of their privacy in their bedrooms.” Which would be a totally legit thing to say, had Hogan been in his bedroom. He was not. He was in the Clems’ bedroom, in their house.
It’s illegal to record someone in Florida without their knowledge — which you would think would’ve long since put Girls Gone Wild out of business, but there they are, making tapes — but Hogan took too long to file charges.
This is gross and I’m done.
Question: If you bang your best friend’s wife in their house, do you expect privacy?
