Source: TMZAs noted last week, The St. Petersburg Times reported that Hulk Hogan has filed a defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife Linda Hogan for his portrayal in her auto-biography "Wrestling the Hulk: My Life Against the Ropes."
In the book, Hogan is portrayed as a manipulative man who threatened to kill Brooke's VH-1 series if he wasn't a regular cast member, someone who cheated on Linda and was physically and mentally abusive. She also alleges that he has had a homosexual relationship with Ed Leslie, a.k.a. Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake.
Now, Leslie is following The Hulkster's lead, as the former WWE superstar told TMZ that he has asked his attorney to file suit against Linda Hogan.
"I've known [Linda] for almost 40 years," said Beefcake. "But when she starts trying to ruin our careers, it just ain't fair. Hulk is a tremendous person ... a great man who deserves to be happy."
