ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) – Former pro wrestler Hulk Hogan is suing Gawker again, saying the gossip website leaked sealed court documents that quoted him making racist remarks.
Hogan’s new lawsuit filed Monday comes on the heels of him winning $140 million verdict against Gawker after it posted a video of him having sex with his then-best friend’s wife.
Gawker denies that it leaked the sealed transcript to the National Enquirer.
The transcript shows Hogan making several racist statements about his daughter’s then-boyfriend.
Once the Enquirer published the story, WWE severed its longtime ties with the famous wrestler.
Hogan also filed suit against a talent agent, two disc jockeys, a radio company and a lawyer, saying they conspired to send media outlets the sex tape.
