Hulk Hogan: I didn't make a sex tape

11 October 2012, 07:54

Los Angeles - Hulk Hogan says the leaking of his sex tape is the "worst thing" that's ever happened to him.

The wrestling star has been rocked after X-rated footage of himself and Heather Clem - the estranged wife of his close friend Bubba the Love Sponge - appeared online, and he is determined to find out who wanted to "hurt" him by revealing the footage to the world.

Speaking on Howard Stern's radio show, he said: "This is the worst thing that's ever happened to me. It's really turned my world upside down. I actually feel safe coming to see you, that's an honest statement.

"This tape is over six years old. Who wants to hurt who, that's what you've got to figure out, and why? Is it for money? Is it to hurt people? What's the motivation?"

Hulk insists he's never knowingly made a sex tape and wasn't complicit to the recording of the X-rated footage, and he can see why others in a similar situation might want to commit suicide because of "really horrible" situations, but he insists he's not feeling that way himself.

'I've been rocked pretty hard'

When asked if he will press charges, he replied: "Oh yeah, oh yes sir. I've got to find out who did this to me. I've been rocked pretty hard before but this is ... I could see why someone would not want to face this and jump off the Empire State Building. I could see how this could do something really horrible to someone's life beyond repair.

"I have braced my family, there could be another one. I have no idea. I've never made a tape. I swear to God I wasn't in on this."

While it has not been confirmed who leaked the sex tape, TMZ.com has revealed Bubba can be seen at the end of the tape, after Hulk has left the room, saying to Heather: "If we ever did want to retire, all we'd have to do is use this footage."

But the wrestling legend has told the gossip website he said to his friend: "If you had anything to do with this, that means we were never friends."
