A bizarre sex tape starring Hulk Hogan, his overweight best friend Bubba the Love Sponge and his ex-wife has been leaked online.

The 59-year-old star, who previously admitted he had starred in the wild tape, can be seen performing a sex act on the woman before telling the lucky lady he ‘felt like a pig’ after eating just ten minutes before filming.

According to Radar Online, the obliging female is Heather Clem, who is the ex-wife of Hulk’s best friend, radio DJ Bubba the Love Sponge.

The website has reported that the tape is 30 minutes long, and that Gawker.com has obtained a one-minute clip of it.

In the clip, the professional wrestler can be seen engaging in a sex act with the brunette after a man thought to be his friend Bubba is seen leaving the room.

Bubba, who legally changed his name by deed poll, is mentioned in the video as Hulk asks his partner if she had slept with him earlier that day.

It has also been said that Hulk receives a call from his son Nick during the bedroom antics, but instead of answering the phone, he responds: ‘F*** no!’

Following their intimate moment, Hulk begins dressing himself before telling the woman that he ‘felt like a pig’ after eating just ten minutes before they filmed.

As he leaves the room, he turns to the woman and says: ‘You’re a hot commodity.’

It is thought that the tape was filmed shortly after Hulk’s split from his wife Linda in 2007.

Speaking about the time the tape must have been made, Hulk told TMZ.com in March: ‘It wasn’t just one brunette I was running wild for a few months.’

He also said: ‘I don’t even remember people’s names much less girls.’

The wrestling legend said the tape must be at least five years old because he has been with current wife Jennifer McDaniel that long.

But it unknown exactly what McDaniel thinks of her husband’s latest look – a two-tone beard.

Hulk modelled the bizarre facial hair during a night out in Miami on Wednesday where he bumped into reality TV star Scott Disick.

As a dapper Scott leaned in to his muscular friend, Scott’s new-found appreciation for a little facial hair paled in comparison to the bold look sported by committed mustachio connoisseur Hulk.

The 12-time world wrestling champion, real name Terry Gene Bollea, paraded his trademark white handlebar moustache, contrasting it against a startling jet-black beard growth of several days.

Hulk wore blue denim jeans, a brown leather belt and a head scarf, posing for the cameras with his shirt off.

Scott, meanwhile, looked his usual dapper self in a crisp white collared shirt and dark suit.

The two men also posed with Hulk’s son Nick, 22, who wore a white T-shirt, sunglasses and a red N.W.A. cap.

Also at LIV nightclub, which is next to Miami’s famed Fontainbleau Hotel, was Scott’s partner’s sister Kim Kardashian, who tweeted a photo of herself also posing with Hulk.

Wearing a figure-hugging white cocktail dress, Kim lifts her arm and makes a fist while standing next to the wrestler.

Next to the photo she wrote:  ‘What you gonna do…when you have @hulkhogan in the house!!!!’

The Kardashian clan have been regulars at LIV since they started filming in Miami.

The club is known for its glitzy crowd and expensive prices, where the cover charge is regularly $60 and drinks start at around $20.

The Kardashian clan – including Kim, Kourtney and Khloe – have been in Miami, Florida, filming for their reality show Kourtney and Kim Take Miami, a spin-off of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

October 6, 2012

The recent Hulk Hogan video scandal has caused quite a stir from “The Hulkster.” The former WWE champion and current TNA wrestling star is now threatening legal actions against the site that posted the leaked sex video online, in addition to consequences against any others who post the video.

According to a report from TMZ.com on October 5, 2012, the leaked sex tape footage was originally posted on the Gawker website just a day ago. However, Hulk Hogan, real name Terry Bollea, is working with his legal team to make sure the footage doesn’t surface in other areas online. He’s also drafting a cease-and-desist order against the Gawker site to make sure the leaked sex video clip is removed from their site.

One of Hogan’s legal representatives, attorney David R. Houston commented on the recent situation to TMZ, saying:

“This tape was made secretly without Hulk’s knowledge or permission. We are going to do everything in our power to figure out who did it. Anyone displaying the tape will be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law.”

Reportedly, this tape was being shopped to the highest bidder at the beginning of 2012, and screenshots from the video made their way online back in April. The actual leaked Hulk Hogan sex video footage just made it online a day ago. The topic quickly become a top trend on the internet as many were curious to see what all the commotion was over.

Gawker says they “obtained the tape from an anonymous source,” and surprisingly it was “free.” That would seem to indicate someone is looking to bash Hogan’s name. However, with Hulk now unleashing his legal team, it seems they may be able to make anyone think twice before posting the footage or even screenshots of it.

Linda Hogan’s mug shot has emerged following her arrest on suspicion of DUI.

The ex-wife of Hulk Hogan appears wild-eyed in the police photo which was taken after she was pulled over in the early hours of Thursday morning in Malibu.

The 53-year-old, whose real name is Linda Bollea, was wearing a sparkly halterneck top and heavy eye make-up in the frame.

She was booked at a nearby police station following a 1.34am arrest, according to TMZ, and was released after posting $5000 several hours later.

Trouble with the law: The star's booking sheet has also emerged

Linda allegedly was booked not just for driving under the influence but in addition for driving on a suspended license.

However a representative for the reality star reportedly told the website Linda drank a glass of champagne on an empty stomach and then drove home from an event in Los Angeles.

The rep apparently stated that Linda has been on antibiotics, and therefore the effects of the alcohol were exacerbated.

Linda’s representative also informed TMZ that she was initially pulled over for speeding.

Her arrest came just hours after her former flame Hulk’s bizarre sex tape was leaked onto the internet.

Eventful day: Linda's arrest occurred on the same day a sex tape featuring her ex-husband Hulk (who she is pictured with in 2005) was leaked online

According to Radar Online, the obliging female is Heather Clem, who is the ex-wife of Hulk’s best friend, radio DJ Bubba the Love Sponge.

It is believed that the tape was filmed shortly after Linda and Hulk, who were married for 24 years, split in 2007.

Before her arrest, Linda told Radar Online she ‘wasn’t really shocked’ about the sex tape but admitted it was ‘a little twisted’.

As a child, “The Incredible Hulk” star Lou Ferrigno would accompany his father to the firing range.

He remembers watching as his dad, a lieutenant with the New York Police Department, pumped four precise shots into a paper target.

“He said, ‘If you ever misbehave, the same will happen to you,’ ” Ferrigno recalled. “I thought, ‘OK, from now on I’ll have respect.’ ”

Ferrigno proved that Friday morning by becoming a reserve deputy with the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff Ian Parkinson swore in the beaming bodybuilder-turned-actor during a ceremony at the Sheriff Office’s Honor Farm building, in front of crowd included his wife, Carla, and Elaine LaLanne, widow of fitness guru Jack LaLanne.

“I’m really honored to be here,” Ferrigno said after his wife pinned a deputy’s badge to his lapel. “It means a lot to me.”

LaLanne said her late husband was “up in heaven” cheering Ferrigno on.

“Jack would be so proud,” said LaLanne, who gave Ferrigno a belt buckle printed with an image of Jack LaLanne and one of his favorite sayings: “Your waistline is your lifeline.”

Best known for his role on TV’s “The Incredible Hulk,” Ferrigno spent a seven-year stint on CBS’s “The King of Queens” and appeared in the comedy “I Love You, Man.” Most recently, he was a contestant on NBC’s “The Celebrity Apprentice.”

In March, Parkinson praised Ferrigno as a “huge supporter of law enforcement.”

Ferrigno may come across as shy at times, Parkinson told The Tribune, “(But) when he talks about law enforcement, he gets so excited and animated. It’s like a 14-year-old kid.”

Ferringo, who divides his time between Arroyo Grande and Santa Monica, joined the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department as a reserve deputy in 2006 after undergoing training for firearms, first aid and high-speed driving techniques.

In order to join the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office, Ferrigno had to undergo a psychiatric evaluation, lie detector test and background check. He also had to get permission from Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca to serve here.

“When you’re part of this department, it’s about trust,” Ferrigno said, stressing that he takes the job seriously. “It’s not like I’m getting a free badge. I’m a certified police officer.”

Ferrigno said he plans to spend 20 to 40 hours a month working with both departments, doing criminal investigation, weapons training and other duties.

26 April 2012             21:10 ET

Comic book fans finally get the chance to see their favourite heroes together when Avengers Assemble – several years in the making – arrives on the big screen this weekend.

“Avengers is going to do big business, that’s in the cards,” a confident Robert Downey Jr says. “But it deserves to succeed because it was a difficult endeavour and there’s a lot of talent in it.”

How difficult can it be to get Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow in one film?

Very, it turns out.

The idea for uniting some of Marvel’s biggest superheroes on screen first emerged during early production of Downey Jr’s blockbuster, Iron Man, in 2008.

Producer and president of Marvel Studios Kevin Fiege discovered that the characters which hadn’t already been brought to the big screen by other Hollywood studios happened to come from the comic book series The Avengers, first published in 1963.

Deciding to test the water to see whether there would be demand for an Avengers movie, producers slipped in an end-of-credits scene with Samuel L Jackson as Nick Fury, the director of fictional peacekeeping agency Shield, to gauge fan reaction.

The buzz was positive and after Fury made another cameo at the end of The Incredible Hulk a couple of months later, Marvel decided to pursue an Avengers film by building it one character at a time – and so came blockbuster hits Thor and Captain America last year.

Downey Jr says all the films were inextricably linked: “All the franchises we’ve launched so far had to work – and if this didn’t work out it would have affected all the other franchises.”

Logistics

After ensuring all the previous films’ writers and directors were on board with working towards an Avengers film came the task of creating a story to unite the characters and make a movie to trump all that had come before it.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon took up the task of writing and directing the project.

The film sees Fury assemble the special team in order to rescue the world from Loki (the villain from Thor played by British actor Tom Hiddleston) and an alien army who plan to enslave the human race.

“Part of making this movie is taking everything that existed in the movies we’ve already put together and to then go back to the comics and be faithful to those,” Fiege says.

And when you have so many A-listers in the same film – Jackson, Downey Jr, Scarlett Johansson and Mark Ruffalo to name a few – getting them to be available at the same time can prove another challenge.

Consequently, there were not many days when the entire cast were on set during its three-month shoot.

“It was hard to have perspective of the size of the film as we were all almost making our own mini-films with so many storylines going on,” Johansson says.

“The only time we got a real sense of the scope of it was when we were all together shooting the scenes in one unit – then there was an electricity in the air.”

Creating The Hulk

Johansson reprises her role as former Russian spy Natasha Romanoff, also known as Black Widow, as first seen opposite Downey Jr in Iron Man 2.

THE ROAD TO AVENGERS ASSEMBLE

With a more fleshed-out role in this film, the star hints that if her character is well received, there could be the possibility of starring in more movies – maybe even her own franchise.

“Marvel understands the value of fan participation and if the fans respond to certain characters, they’ll invest more in that character,” she says.

“There’s always the possibility [of more films], but even if there was a possibility, we’d never tell.”

One newcomer to the franchise was Ruffalo, who plays Bruce Banner and The Hulk – roles played by Edward Norton and Eric Bana in previous films.

A Hulk fan as a child, Ruffalo says he was attracted to the idea of being the first actor to play both roles, as the giant green monster had been only a computer-generated creation before, and this time motion-capture technology would be used.

“People have had a great expectation of the Hulk for a long time,” he says. “But technology has advanced to the point where an actor can inhabit the Hulk and there’s now a seamlessness between Banner turning into him.”

Ruffalo adds his experience has made him more sympathetic to the issue of more recognition for motion-capture actors during awards season, raised when Lord of the Rings actor Andy Serkis was overlooked for his performance as Gollum, and highlighted again with the stars of James Cameron’s Avatar.

“There’s a performance, but there’s also the aspect of the animators too which rarely gets talked about,” he says.

“It would be cool if the whole team was considered, [but actors] should at least be recognised or have the capability of being recognised in some way.

“Yes there was an element of wearing a leotard, but it was a very intensive process.”

Egos

Despite the A-list ensemble, the cast insist there was no room for individual egos on set.

“Once we realised the trailers were the same size we calmed down,” Ruffalo jokes.

Hiddleston adds: “It would be so ironic trying to make a film about the achievements of a team to have a load of individuals throwing their toys out of their prams and acting like divas.”

And being superheroes, the cast had moments of “wardrobe embarrassment” which led them all to be humiliated at one point or another.

“My leotard made all the wrong places look big and all the right places look small,” Ruffalo complains.

Hiddleston adds: “Chris Evans and Scarlett were flying the flag for Spandex – and there was a moment when I saw [Thor] Chris Hemsworth being literally drilled into his costume as one of the discs on his breastplate had fallen off.”

Robert Downey Jr spoke to the BBC’s Lizo Mzimba at The Avengers premiere in London

With critics mainly giving positive reviews, time will tell if comic book fans are as enthusiastic – and if the Avengers franchise will continue.

Nevertheless, the cast are prepared to be tied to the series – and everything else that comes with it.

“We don’t know what the future holds for these characters – we all signed on with the hope that we’d be able to explore them more,” Johansson says.

“But I love the action figures – I just became Lego which is the best thing that ever happened to me.”

Avengers Assemble is on general release now.
