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.

“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.”
