A jury in Florida found that Gawker Media, the owner of a popular celebrity and news site, invaded the privacy of the former pro wrestler known as Hulk Hogan by posting excerpts of a sex tape involving him, and awarded him $115 million in damages.
Hogan, whose real name is Terry Bollea, sued Gawker in 2012, claiming harm when the site posted a brief video of him having sex with Heather Cole, then the wife of Tampa radio personality Bubba “the Love Sponge” Clem. The video came from a surveillance camera that Clem had installed in his bedroom.
A six-person jury — four women and two men — in St. Petersburg on Friday found for the 62-year-old Hogan and awarded him $55 million in compensatory damages plus an additional $60 million for emotional distress
That’s great news for the Hulkster, brother!
