While Bubba “The Love” Sponge was revealed as the man behind the Hulk Hogan sex tape, the person who actually leaked it to the media wasn’t him, but a disgruntled former employee of Bubba according to RadarOnline.com
The whole thing apparently started when Bubba departed his Sirius XM Radio show and left without paying his staff. The staff knew about the sex tape as he shared it with them and one of them apparently decided it was payback time for Bubba for leaving them without money.
“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.
The website also adds 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.
