Hulk Hogan's alleged gay lover, Ed Leslie, or Brutus The Barber Beefcake, has followed Hogan's lead and will be suing the former wrestler's ex-wife over allegations of a homosexual relationship, Wrestling Inc. reported.
Hogan has filed a defamation lawsuit against his former wife, Linda Bollea, after she wrote in her autobiography, Wrestling the Hulk: My Life against the Ropes that her ex-husband had homosexual relations with wrestler Brutus Beefcake, the Telegraph reported.
Hogan slammed the allegations, branding them as insane. He told US Weekly, After the four-year crazy divorce I thought I'd heard everything I could hear in the courtroom. Then, all of a sudden she says I abused her, that I was violent. She told everybody that I was a homosexual.
Hogan's attorney, who filed an 18-page civil suit against Bollea, told the St. Petersburg Times that Hogan was being accused of all sorts of vile conduct that he didn't commit. Miss Bollea's made enough of these outrageous allegations that it's time they stop. The only realistic way of making them stop is through the court system.
Now Beefcake is pursuing a legal suit against Bollea. He told TMZ that he asked his attorney to sue Hogan's ex-wife over the gay allegations.
I've known [Linda] for almost 40 years, said Beefcake. But when she starts trying to ruin our careers, it just ain't fair. Hulk is a tremendous person ... a great man who deserves to be happy, he said.
According to the Huffington Post Hogan said that if any of the allegations were true he would have admitted he was homosexual and embraced it.
It's just so 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. It's so ridiculous. I don't mean to laugh about it, because it's not funny. But it's insane. It doesn't make any sense to me, he said, the Huffington Post reported.
