Hulk Hogan has decided to take legal action and sue those responsible for his humiliating sex tape that surfaced recently — filing a $100 million lawsuit against Gawker, who were the first to publish a clip of the tape, and a lawsuit against his sex tape partner, Heather Clem, and her then-husband, DJ, Bubba the Love Sponge.

Hulk claimed in his filings that he was not aware of the fact he was being recorded when he had consensual sex with Clem six years ago in her home. He feels the release of the tape has caused “severe and irreparable injury which cannot be adequately compensated by monetary damages.”

“Mr. Hogan had a reasonable expectation of his privacy, just as all Americans have a reasonable expectation of their privacy in their bedrooms,” Hogan’s attorney Charles Harder said.

Meanwhile, Clem’s attorney, Stephen Diaco, firmly belives that his client was not behind the release of the tape:

“I can’t comment on the suit. This has caused harm to Bubba and he didn’t release it, he didn’t condone the release of it. He wants to find out who did that and he wants that person to be held accountable,” he said outside court Monday.
