Hogan threatening lawsuit over leaked sex tape



To the surprise of nobody, Hulk Hogan's lawyers have already threatened the Gawker web site for airing about a minute of clips of Hulk Hogan's sex tape on its web site.

This is the same tape involving Hogan and the then-wife of Bubba the Love Sponge, taken many years ago, that garnered publicity when word got out the tape existed and major porn companies tried to convince Hogan to allow it to be released.

David Houston, Hogan's lawyer, told TMZ.com, "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 claimed it got the tape from an anonymous source who gave them the tape for free.
