Sometimes the people closest to you – the ones you think you can trust the most are actually the ones you can’t trust at all. Case in point, the Hulk Hogan sex tape scandal. Hogan, star of Hulk Hogan’s Celebrity Championship Wrestling recently learned that his best friend, Bubba the Love Sponge was involved in secretly making the sex tape between Hogan and Bubba’s estranged wife, Heather Clem.
According to TMZ, Bubba appears at the end of the sex tape, after Hogan has left and says to Heather, “If we ever did want to retire, all we’d have to do is use this footage of him.”
After hearing of Bubba’s involvement, Hogan said, “I’m sick to my stomach right now.”
The incident between Hogan and Clem happened 6 years ago. Hogan explains, “I was at an all time low. I was pretty much bottomed out to tell you the truth.” He said due to the personal relationship with the marriage he was in at the time, “I was at an all time low and made a bad choice.”
Hogan said, “Bubba’s been nothing but a good friend to me” and “Heather’s always been such a nice person to me.” Hogan explained that Heather made constant advances toward him for a couple of years before they actually had sex and although he resisted and thought it was a joke, Bubba repeatedly told him it was okay.
When Heather offered again, “I made a huge mistake,” Hogan said. “And I will forever be sorry for that.”
Hogan said the sex tape “first popped up 6 or 7 months ago. It was something I was praying would go away simply because I’m accountable for it.” He said he had spoken to Bubba the Love Sponge on numerous occasions and asked him if he had anything to do with the video but Bubba adamantly denied any involvement.
It’s obvious Bubba was involved in making the sex tape but it’s still unclear if he was responsible for leaking the video.
Hogan is working with attorney, David Houston and they are trying to determine who is responsible for leaking the tape. “We are not going to be happy until we’ve exhausted all sources and they’re being led out to jail in handcuffs because this is a criminal offense,” Hogan said.
What do you think of Bubba’s betrayal? Was Heather involved all along? And did she know Bubba was taping her and Hogan having sex? Did Bubba leak the video? Tell us what you think by leaving a comment below.
