Hulk Hogan: I Must Answer Back!

by at . Comments

Hulk Hogan has dropped a legal leg drop on his ex-wife.

The former professional wrestler filed a lawsuit against Linda Hogan last week, following allegations in her new memoir that claim the Hulkster abused her physically and carried on a same-sex affair with former WWE star Brutus "the Barber" Beefcake.

A Disgraced Wrestler

"After the four-year crazy divorce I thought I'd heard everything I could hear in the courtroom," Hulk told Us Weekly of his basis for filing the defamation suit. "Then, all of a sudden she says I abused her, that I was violent. She told everybody that I was a homosexual."

Labeling the accusations as "insane," Hulk continued:

If "I was a homosexual I would embrace it. It's just so crazy to hear, so I have a real problem with it... If you're going to say I'm something that I'm not to try to ruin my career and my livelihood... I have to answer her back."

Beefcake - whose real name is Ed Leslie - has also answd back. He tells TMZ he's planning his own lawsuit, adding:

"I've known [Linda] for almost 40 years... but when she starts trying to ruin our careers, it just aint fair. Hulk is a tremendous person... a great man who deserves to be happy."

Hulk Hogan Quotes

I had a real period where I had a tough, tough time. I got caught off guard with this divorce thing. I didn't see it coming. My son is doing better. I pray for my wife every day. I am very grateful because we realize how very blessed we are. Now that we are aware, we are walking in the spirit of God. We are cool. We are way cool.

I was offered lots of [reality] shows when I was making my career comeback against The Rock, but I kept saying no. But years later, it was my daughter’s career and son’s racing career that we were thinking about. We saw the Ashlee Simpson show and Jessica Simpson’s and Lindsay Lohan on the big screen and we just didn’t haven’t a vehicle to compete. But I considered it, because this time it was about the Hogan family rather than Hulk Hogan; they all wanted to do it and I tried to warn them about what they were in for. Now look what happened.
