Hard as you might try to get the image or mere thought of Hulk Hogan's sex tape out of your mind, new revelations keep putting it back in the spotlight. The most recent event to do so was Hogan's own appearance on the Howard Stern Show, during which he confirmed the sex tape dating to 2006, and alleged that his partner in crime was Heather Clam, who later went on to marry — and finally divorce — Bubba the Love Sponge, in a ceremony that featured Hogan as best man.

Hogan, on the other hand, was then still very much married to his now ex-wife Linda, although he claims that she was abusive and drove him to seek comfort elsewhere. "When I bottomed out, when my personal life was… I knew my marriage was really screwed up bad, and until I went to the divorce, I didn't believe all the stuff, that there was such a thing as verbal or mental abuse, I didn't realize that," said Hogan, 59, who nevertheless acknowledges that it was a mistake. "I was with some friends and I made a wrong choice and now all of a sudden it surfaces over six years later and it's just appalling," said Hogan, real name Terry Bollea, who has since married Jennifer McDaniel.

"It's totally flipped my new life and my new role upside down," said the former wrestler, who says he is worried about the effect it may have on his children Brooke, 24, and Nick, 22. Hogan sustains that the video was recorded and released without his consent, for which he filed a police report in Florida on Tuesday.
