REALITY TV STAR and former pro wrestler Hulk Hogan is suing a Tampa Bay-based disc jockey, the DJ’s ex-wife and a New York media group over a sex tape.

According to a news release from Hogan’s publicist, two lawsuits will be discussed during a news conference later this evening Irish-time near the federal courthouse in Tampa.

Hogan says he was secretly taped six years ago having sex with the ex-wife of DJ Bubba “The Love Sponge” Clem. Portions of the video of Hogan and Heather Clem were posted on the online gossip site Gawker.

Hogan has sent a cease-and-desist letter to Gawker.

Hogan’s real name is Terry Bollea.
