Hulk Hogan's tape containing nude sex between him and an unnamed woman was partially leaked on The Dirty, with grainy photos of the tryst being viewed thousands of times since it became public in last week. Now, the Hulkster wants the tapes and photos off of the internet.
The Hulk Hogan tape features a man looking very much like Hogan wearing his signature bandana- possibly one of the reasons the legendary wrestler felt the need to take action against the black-and-white photos. Also in the video is an unidentified brunette.
Hogan, whose real name is Terry Gene Bollea, had his lawyer write a cease and desist letter to Nik Richie of TheDirty.com demanding he take down the pictures, according to TMZ. His veiled threat never confirmed that Bollea was in the sex tape, however.
"As you know, should a sex tape or photographs of Mr. Bollea exist, they were taken without his consent and therefore the same would constitute a felony in the State of Florida," wrote the lawyer.
Nik Richie and the site have "no plans to remove the pictures in question" according to TMZ, which could lead to an official lawsuit. Hogan also previously told the entertainment site that legal action would be taken if anyone sold nude pictures of him.
"If anyone goes forward with this thing, we're gonna find 'em and we're gonna prosecute," said the 58-year-old previously.
Though Hulk Hogan married to his second wife Jennifer McDaniel in December of 2010, there was a point where he was single. After his very public divorce from Linda Claridge in 2007 following Hogan's affair, the wrestler said he was in a dark place, even considering suicide.
It was at that time that he also mentioned going through a 4-month drinking binge, and that he said the infamous tape could have been made without his knowledge.
"During that time, I don't even remember people's names, much less girls," admitted Hogan.
There is a strong consensus that the woman in the video is the ex-wife of DJ Bubba the Love Sponge, according to TheBlemish.com.
