Hulk Hogan Involved In Another Lawsuit Over Leaked Tape

Hulk Hogan

The story of Hulk Hogan and a leaked tape isn’t over yet.

ABC Action News is reporting that Hogan is now involved in another lawsuit in the state of Florida over the tape with Tampa radio personality Mike “Cowhead” Calta (host of The Cowhead Show, heard weekday afternoons in Tampa on 102.5 The Bone), Calta’s former co-worker Matt “Spiceboy” Loyd, and Cox Radio, which owns 102.5 The Bone.

Hogan alleges that Calta and Loyd were involved in “stealing, disseminating, using and exploiting illegally-recorded video.”

The defendants asked the judge to dismiss the case, but that motion was denied. They now have to respond within 20 days. Hogan is looking for unspecified damages as he claims that the tape destroyed his wrestling career.

The tape, which showed Hogan having sex with Heather Clem (ex-wife of Tampa radio personality Bubba the Love Sponge Clem), was posted on Gawker.com, where more than seven million people viewed it.

Last March, Hulk Hogan won his case against Gawker to the tune of $140.1 million. Hogan sued the website in 2012 for publishing portions of a sex tape that was recorded without his knowledge. Gawker argued that they were protected by the First Amendment because the video was newsworthy. Gawker ended up declaring bankruptcy and settled in bankruptcy court to pay Hogan $31 million.

Hogan was fired from WWE and his role as a judge on WWE Tough Enough in the summer of 2015 after racially charged comments from the tape came to light. Gawker alleged that Hogan only filed a lawsuit against them to prevent the racial statements from being released

It isn’t currently known how much Hogan is asking for in the latest case.
