Hulk Hogan: ‘Bubba you’re not filming this are you?’

hulk_hogan_2012Hulk Hogan was back in a Florida court Tuesday, taking questions on the witness stand to support his privacy lawsuit against Gawker for posting an excerpt of a sex tape involving him and Heather Clem.

Gawker is attempting to establish Hogan invited attention toward supposedly private matters and hardly objected when the media followed suit. Hogan says he “didn’t have a problem” with TMZ writing about the sex tape despite at least one colleague in the wrestling industry who was telling him at the time that it was beneath him to give them an interview. Hogan also discussed a radio interview with Bubba the Love Sponge where the length of his penis came up.

Hogan said that when he said it was 10 inches, that was for his Hulk character. “Terry Bollea’s penis is not 10 inches.”

Hogan also had to address his interview with Howard Stern. Hogan says that in going on Stern’s show, “You have to take the good with the bad,” and when the sex tape came up, he wasn’t happy, but “I was on an entertainment show and I had to be an entertainer, so I just kept going.”

Sullivan asks, “At no point did you tell Stern this was an invasion of privacy?”

“I didn’t want to bring Terry Bollea the man into the conversation,” Hogan answered, explaining that he understands that although he was there on Stern’s show to promote a wrestling event, he understood the host would be touching on other issues. “That’s standard protocol,” he says. “The publicist would address it with Howard. I wouldn’t.”

Hogan testified that when he and Heather eventually did have sex, Bubba the Love Sponge handed Hogan a condom. Hogan said he felt something was wrong, and he asked if they were being taped. He said Bubba denied it.

“It was so weird and so crazy, my gut was telling me that this was off, this was wrong” Hogan testified. “From the feeling that I had, I said, ‘Bubba you’re not filming this are you?’…he lashed into me.”

He described Bubba the Love Sponge– the character– as “arrogant, cocky, nasty to people on the phone.” However he said, for a long time, the person behind the radio personality a close friend.

“We became so close that we started training every day together,” he said.

Hulk Hogan rejects Howard Stern’s invitation

Hulk Hogan doesn’t want or need Howard Stern to act as peacemaker in his ongoing sex-tape litigation with former best friend Bubba the Love Sponge Clem.

Hogans lawyer declined an invitation from Stern to have the wrestling star and Bubba together on his popular SiriusXM radio show so Stern could talk Hogan into dropping his invasion-of-privacy lawsuit against the Tampa shock jock and his ex-wife Heather Clem.

“Absolutely not. It’s not going to happen,” Hogan’s lawyer David Houston said. “I appreciate Howard Stern’s offer. I know it has entertainment value, but this isn’t entertainment. We’re dealing with some drastic consequences in my client’s life.”

Houston added that a settlement with the Clems might be possible in the future, but that Bubba and his legal team failed to provide satisfactory answers about the tape’s origins and security leading up to their legal filing Monday.

“We appreciate Howard Sterns’ recommendation and insight, and certainly resolution is never anything to be avoided if a settlement is possible. However, under the current situation, we have a client who has been damaged, and as such, we have to pursue our legal remedies until we arrive at a point where we truly understand the actions of all players,” Houston said.

“Once that happens, the idea of resolution is never off the table,” he said.

Heather Clem caught on tape with multiple men?

Hulk Hogan isn’t the only guy who was caught on tape with Bubba the Love Sponge’s former wife … TMZ has learned there are multiple tapes … with multiple men … in the same exact bed.

TMZ has seen three additional sex tapes featuring Heather Clem with other men — shot while she was married to Bubba — and in one of the tapes, she even walks up to the camera to double-check that it’s recording.

In the footage, she tells her mystery partner — neither Bubba nor Hulk — “Is this thing recording? Okay, not that I don’t trust you but I will get in trouble if it doesn’t.”

The insinuation — Heather and Bubba had some kind of agreement in which Heather was allowed to screw other men … as long as she recorded it.

As for the other two new tapes — they were both shot in the exact same style as the Hulk tape … in Bubba’s bedroom with an overhead surveillance-type camera. It’s unclear if the two men in those tapes knew if they were being recorded.

But as we previously reported, both Bubba AND Heather were aware of the surveillance camera set-up in the bedroom — and were captured on tape joking about selling the Hogan footage for big money.

TMZ reached out to Heather and Bubba for comment — no word back.

Hulk Hogan calling in the FBI over Sex Tape

It’s proving to be quite the soap opera, and now the latest in the Hulk Hogan sex tape saga is that the video was reportedly leaked by ‘an unhappy ex-employee of his best friend Bubba the Love Sponge.’

Despite the reporting by Howard 100 News Reporter Jon Lieberman who claimed there would be no criminal charges from the sex tape leak, Hogan plans to contact the FBI over the tape.

With rumors that Shock Jock Bubba the Love Sponge may have leaked the tape, Hogan is determined to get to the bottom of who sent it to Gawker.

A source told TMZ that Hogan had tried to report the crime to local police in Florida but because of the statute of limitations and the nature of the offence, officers could not help him.

Hogan’s lawyer added the wrestler will meet agents on Monday.

Meanwhile source told Radar: ‘Even though Bubba knew how much the Hulk sex tape would be worth, he didn’t stab his friend in the back and he’s not the one who released it.

‘It’s a former employee of Bubba’s who was outraged when he left Sirius to go back to terrestrial radio. He wanted payback.’

The source added: ‘Bubba didn’t secure the tape properly and showed it to a bunch of people. And that’s why they’re all in this mess now.’

Did Bubba leak the Hulk Hogan Sex Tape?

Yesterday Howard Stern sounded convinced that Bubba the Love Sponge was the one who leaked the Hulk Hogan sex tape to Gawker.

TMZ has seen the last few minutes of Hulk’s leaked sex tape in which he bangs Bubba’s wife Heather Clem. It’s very clear Bubba was in on it. Moments after the deed is done and Hulk leaves, Bubba says to his wife, “If we ever did want to retire, all we’d have to do is use this footage.”

His wife shoots back, “You’d never do that.” Bubba then tries to recover, saying, “I wouldn’t do that, you’d be the biggest rat, you’d be dead.”

Today an attorney for Hogan filed legal papers at the Clearwater Police Department, asking detectives to help track down the culprit who invaded the 59 year old’s privacy and recorded him without permission. Hulk said, “It’s appalling. It’s flipped my life totally upside down… Jennifer is rattled, to say the least. She’s not part of this media life. It’s something devastating to me, I’ve never been through anything on this level.”l.”
