Hulk Hogan returned to a Pinellas Country, Fla., courtroom on Tuesday to be cross-examined by lawyers for the media website, Gawker, in which he has a $100 million lawsuit out against for showing a portion of a video in 2012 showing him having sex with Heather Clem, the former wife of his then-friend Bubba the Love Sponge, a radio shock jock, who filmed the encounter.
We all knew the trial would throw open details to Hogan’s personal life, but we didn’t think the size of his penis would be up for discussion. During cross-examination a conversation from the Bubba the Love Sponge‘s show about the size of Hogan’s “python” was brought up:
“Well, it’s not mine, because mine isn’t that size. But we were discussing the length of Hulk Hogan’s.” He adds, “I do not have a 10-inch penis. No I do not. Seriously.”
Eric Bischoff issued the following statement on the Hulk Hogan/Gawker case:
“One of my best friends, and someone who is recognized all over the world, is in a high profile trial that not only continues to expose the most intimate and embarrassing part of his (presumably) private life, but will determine just how far blog sites can go to exploit and ruin the lives of others-celebrities or not. Clearly I am not objective. I know the man as well or better than anyone outside his family. I ask any wrestling fans out there-to support this man in your thoughts and prayers as he defends himself and his family agains a group that has caused so much pain and suffering to so many-just to get a visit, click, follow or tweet. He’s not perfect. None of us are. But no one deserves what has happened to him. Looking forward to seeing him at peace”
