Hogan, who was filmed having sex with Heather Clem, the wife of former TNA talent and shock jock Todd "Bubba the Love Sponge" Clem, was blackmailed by Bubba's co-worker, Matthew Lloyd, who worked with Bubba under the name of Spice.
Lloyd then attempted to blackmail Hogan, as heard in an FBI taped conversation between Lloyd and Hogan's attorneys:
"Wants to start negotiating, 1 million dollars," said Lloyd's attorney. Two weeks later, the lawyer changed his tune, saying, "I have authority bottom line 400,000," before finally agreeing to "3 payments equaling 300-thousand."
Hillsborough State Attorney Mark Ober however, is refusing to prosecute in the case, saying he isn't sure that he could secure a conviction. Bubba The Love Sponge stated that he thinks his wild personality and political motivations are preventing a prosecution.
Hulk Hogan was fired by WWE earlier this year when a racial tirade from the stolen tapes surfaced.
