Source: U.S. Weekly (via Yahoo!)As 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 Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake.
"After the four-year crazy divorce I thought I'd heard everything I could hear in the courtroom," Hogan told Us Weekly, via Yahoo!. "Then, all of a sudden she says I abused her, that I was violent. She told everybody that I was a homosexual. If any of that was true, I would admit it, and 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."
