HULK Hogan took to the witness stand in his $100 million sex tape lawsuit against news website Gawker.
Hulk Hogan has told a court in Florida he thought it was a joke when his former best friend Bubba 'the Love Sponge' Clem said his wife wanted to have sex with him.
However, the radio presenter filmed it and the Gawker website published the resulting sex tape.
Now, the 62-year-old former professional wrestler is suing Gawker for $100m.
Lawyers for the longtime WWE champion claim he had the right to privacy in a private bedroom. They are also claiming emotional distress, and say the video was filmed without his knowledge.
Hogan, whose real name is Terry Bollea, said it began when Bubba told him on the phone that his wife Heather wanted to be intimate with him.
Hogan says he did not take it seriously at first, but the couple - whom he said had an open marriage - kept bringing it up.
When he and Heather did eventually have sex, Hogan claims he felt something was wrong, and asked whether they were being taped.
Hogan said Bubba denied it.
The media company are accused of publishing a portion of the former pro wrestler’s sex video to “harm” him.
According to Hogan’s lawyers, Gawker invaded the veteran star's privacy and caused deep emotional distress when it posted a video of him having sex.
