* The woman in the video was Heather Clem, wife of Bubba The Love Sponge.
* Bubba gave Hulk his blessing to have sex with her.
* Hulk admitted his performance wasn’t exactly “tip-top”
* He is working to find out who released the tape, and will press charges.
* Finally, he says he didn’t know he was being recorded.

UPDATE 1:

Following Hulk Hogan’s appearance on Howard Stern today, Linda Hogan has fired back at Hulk Hogan. During the show, Hogan claimed Linda mentally abused her during their marriage, which put him on a downward spiral that led to him having sex with Bubba the Love Sponge’s wife six years ago. This was recorded as was the sex tape that made it online this week. Linda’s attorney Raymond Rafool also responded on Linda’s behalf, calling Hogan, “a pitiful excuse for a grown man to avoid taking responsibility for his own mishaps and actions.” He also added the following…

“It is a shame that Hulk Hogan tries to deflect his immorality with false allegations that Linda verbally and emotionally abused him. Linda Hogan never abused Hulk Hogan – verbally, mentally, or otherwise.”

Here is the full article from TMZ.com:

Linda Hogan is firing back at the Hulkster … claiming her ex-husband was lying through his over-bleached mustache when he accused her of abusing him during their marriage.

Linda is pissed over the statements Hulk made to Howard Stern this morning … when he claimed he was the victim of verbal and mental abuse by his former spouse … and that’s why he decided to bang Bubba the Love Sponge’s estranged wife.

Now, Linda is calling BS … telling TMZ, “Unbelievable — I never abused Hulk Hogan.”

Linda also unleashed her lawyer, Raymond Rafool, who adds, “Hulk Hogan’s the-devil-made-me-do -it (or in his case my ex-wife Linda-made-me-do-it) is just a pitiful excuse for a grown man to avoid taking responsibility for his own mishaps and actions.”

Rafool adds, “It is a shame that Hulk Hogan tries to deflect his immorality with false allegations that Linda verbally and emotionally abused him. Linda Hogan never abused Hulk Hogan – verbally, mentally or otherwise.”

UPDATE 2:

Hulk Hogan is turning to the police to find out who leaked his sex tape. Hogan’s attorney David R. Houston filed a police report with the Clearwater PD this morning, claiming whoever made the tape committed a felony by unlawfully recording Hulk without his consent. He also claims whoever leaked it broke the law by unlawfully running that footage.

Hogan hopes that a police investigation will lead him to the culprit or culprits responsible.

Hogan has previously sent a cease-and-desist letter to Gawker, demanding the website remove the minute-long clip it posted, which featured Hogan having sex with Heather Clem. At this time, the website hasn’t removed the footage.

UPDATE 3: 

Hulk Hogan just appeared on “TMZ Live” and was given the news that at the very end of his sex tape, Bubba the Love Sponge enters the room and says, “If we ever did want to retire, all we’d have to do is use this footage.” When told about this live on-air, Hogan appeared shocked and said that makes him “sick to his stomach” if true. Hulk says he’s had numerous conversations with Bubba about the tape and Bubba has denied it over and over. The two talked several days ago and Bubba once again denied he leaked it.

Hogan said he hadn’t heard the end of the tape but wanted to do so and asked TMZ to show him and his lawyer the footage. The TMZ staff danced around the question of showing him the full tape. Hulk says his friendship with Bubba is over if he finds out he’s the one who leaked it. He also said he wants Bubba or whoever did it to be put in jail. Bubba has not responded to TMZ.com for comment.

Again, Hogan seemed absolutely shocked to find out that Bubba may be the person who leaked it.

The following is from TMZ.com:

Hulk Hogan’s best friend, Bubba the Love Sponge, not only secretly videotaped Hulk having sex — he bragged afterwards that the tape was a goldmine that could be the key to Bubba’s retirement.

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.”

The revelation is interesting … considering Hulk went on the Howard Stern show TODAY and said he and Bubba are still good friends — and sounded confident Bubba was NOT the culprit.

There’s more, TMZ just broke the story … Hulk is filing a criminal police report in FL and trying to HUNT DOWN whoever leaked the tape — claiming he was filmed illegally.
