Hulk Hogan is suing ex-wife Linda Hogan over her claim that the former pro-wrestling superstar carried on a relationship with fellow wrestler Brutus Beefcake, real name Edward Leslie.

According to Us Weekly, the 58-year-old Hulk, real name Terry Gene Bollea, filed his lawsuit last week.

“After the four-year crazy divorce I thought I'd heard everything I could hear in the courtroom,” Hulk told the magazine on Saturday at the Spike TV Video Game Awards in Culver City, California. “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 if I was a homosexual, I would embrace it. It's just 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.”

Linda made the claims in her memoir Wrestling the Hulk: My Life Against the Ropes.

When asked during an interview on Matty P's Radio Happy Hour, “Do you believe that Hulk and Brutus Beefcake ever had an intimate relationship?” Linda replied, “A little bird told me, 'Yes, they think they did.'” (The audio is embedded in the right panel of this page.

Linda divorced Hulk four years ago after nearly 24 years of marriage. Their family, which includes daughter Brooke and son Nick, was the focus of the reality series Hogan Knows Best and its spin-off Brooke Knows Best.
