According to a report by RadarOnline.com, the Hulk Hogan sex tape was leaked by a former employee of Bubba “The Love” Sponge.
When Bubba departed his Sirius XM Radio show, he left without paying his staff. Some of the staff knew about the sex tape and decided it was payback time for Bubba for stiffing them. “Even though Bubba knew how much the Hulk sex tape would be worth, he didn’t stab his friend in the back and he’s not the one who released it,” RadarOnline’s source said.
RadarOnline also mentioned that Hogan knew about the sex tape “for years” and “even had the ability to stop the sale last year.” The same source that Hogan acting all shocked at the release of the tape “is crap.” The source adds that when the tape was made aware to him three years ago, Hogan was blindsided, but he has been aware of it this whole time. “Bubba didn’t secure the tape properly and showed it to a bunch of people,” the source says. “And that’s why they’re all in this mess now.” The same source also says that Hogan’s PR people didn’t act on stopping the sale as they deemed it would give publicity to Hulk.
